We launched TitlePager in the Fall of 2017 as a low-cost and technologically simple way for authors to create sites to market their books. Over the years as we worked with authors to build out sites we thought that there was a need for a less expensive option filled with features but simpler for an author to manage, one that gives them the control and ownership that an Amazon, Goodreads (part of Amazon), or publisher catalog page doesn’t. Also, we wanted to support all the fabulous indie authors brave enough to put their work out into the world. So after attending a hackathon at MIT where we created a prototype we came back and spent some time creating TitlePager.
It takes about fifteen minutes to set up a TitlePager site and authors can come back and edit them anytime. They can be a standalone site, become a tab on an author page of Facebook, or be embedded into an existing author site. TitlePages connect to mailing lists and book giveaways, hold video, reviews, upcoming appearances, and even give users the ability to read an excerpt inline. They are mobile friendly too. We feel that TitlePages make a great home base for connecting an author to their readers. We are also happy to build out bigger sites for authors and work with them on social strategy and the execution of the strategy.
