2023 Platinum Sponsor: Pub Site
We're excited to announce that Pub Site is joining us a the platinum sponsor for our 2023 Women in Publishing Summit. Pub Site is the premiere website solution for author. Their support for a space of our own, as women in this industry, is a reflection of their commitment to an inclusive, accessible publishing industry.
We're looking forward to welcoming Fauzia Burke and her husband, John Burke, back to our conference this year. Alexa first connected with Fauzia when she saw her speak at BookExpo. We’ve been a huge fan of her transformative take on how authors can use their websites to grow their writing career. We’ve been privileged to see that happen in real time for clients, past attendees, and friends using Pub Site in the past few years.
The ease and elegance of Pub Site, quite simply, just works. And in a world where so much doesn’t, we're excited to share more about them with you!
What does Pub Site do?
In short, Pub Site works with authors to build functional, beautiful, smart websites that move their career forward.
That can happen several ways, depending on each author’s unique needs and wants. A variety of proven and specialized templates are available, or Pub Site offers custom design to create the website of your dreams, so you don’t have to worry about it.
Authors need different things on their websites than baseball leagues or jewelry stores or news sites. They need functional e-commerce, clear space to share creative content, places for landing pages and more. They need to have strong visual language and branding that tells potential readers what this writer is all about. They need to connect to all the important social sites, of course. And they definitely need clear, strong calls to action to get on the newsletter list.
Pub Site understands that. Fauzia has spent her whole career in book publicity and marketing – she’s built her company around knowing what authors need. Pub Site isn’t trying to sell you a template made for a realtor or a stone mason or a teacher. They’re giving you the opportunity to build a custom website for a working author that will attract ideal readers, aid in your marketing and become your digital home.
What kind of author needs Pub Site?
We believe that every author needs a website. A website is a great place for people to find out more about you and your books. It also allows them to connect with you on social media and through your email list.
We believe perfecting your book should come before learning a new technical skill set. Every spare minute you have as an authors should go first to making sure your book is everything it should be. Every step you take in marketing is a step towards a successful book.
So unless you love web design or are truly committed to an ultra-low cost process, spending some money on your website is a very smart bet.
Pub Site offers both a semi-DIY option for those who want to flex their creative muscles and get involved in the hands-on work of the website, AND a done-for-you option. We’ve had clients successfully use both, because Pub Site’s team is supportive and helpful at every turn.
