F.A.Q.s

Is Notion for Authors its own software?

No. Notion for Authors uses Notion, a customizable project management platform. Notion itself is available either on the web or through its desktop app. While available in mobile, Notion for Authors is designed specifically for larger screens.

Is this a yearly subscription or a one-time payment?

Notion for Authors is a one-time payment. Notion itself has multiple tiers, both free and paid. Good news, this template is designed specifically for free users. There is no need for a monthly subscription with Notion to use its features.

Do I need to do math or complex equations?

Maybe. Notion For Authors  is designed to require as little math as possible. It comes with calculations already in place. However, these may need modifications, such as tax or retirement deductions, to fit your business. These are easily customized.

Is there any upselling or additional products I'll need?

Nope! I don’t believe in selling a product that requires an expensive course to understand. The only promotions you’ll see is a single link to Cover Villain and temporary graphics you can replace at your leisure.

Will I be able to write in Notion?

Maybe. I have not included any dashboards for writing. While an author could use it as their writing software, this is designed specifically for an author’s back end. 

How much tech knowledge do I need to use Notion for Authors?

Some. There’s no easy answer. Notion For Authors is a complicated network of interlinked databases. If that phrase scares you, don’t worry. As long as you understand the basics of a spreadsheet, you’ll be okay. The guide helps you navigate this. But for features you want specifically customized for your business, it may require watching a video tutorial or two. Thankfully Notion has an excellent collection of quick, educational videos.

How much time will Notion For Authors take?

Depends. For an author starting out, this could be a relatively quick process. For authors with larger back catalogues, it may take time inputting all your information. Not all databases need to be filled in to start benefitting from Notion For Authors organizational abilities. Thanks to Notion’s collaboration abilities, this could be a task given to a virtual assistant. Once set up, it’s fairly quick to add new content.

What happens if I break my template?

There are tools for this! Notion has history tools that allow a user to undo so many steps and retrieve deleted files. If absolute worst comes to worst and a database can’t be repaired, it can be downloaded again from the original template. 

Will Cover Villain provide technical support?

Short answer, no. Because of the customizable nature of Notion, the moment alterations are made, it can be a nightmare to trouble shoot. For individual authors, it is impossible considering the endless variables. But if there is a problem with the initial Notion for Authors template, those will be corrected. 

Can you include a specific feature for me?

Maybe. There is a possibility of updating the Notion For Authors template in the future and include additional tools. However, once an author starts using Notion, it can be tricky to integrate new databases. This will most likely not happen at the earliest until the end of the year.
