Our mission is to put the power in your hands — creating a clear online voice, with strategies, content and techniques that will greatly expand your audiences and create sustainable ways to retain and grow your following. 

The importance of an overall holistic plan is often overlooked and underestimated. However, this is the only way for you to sustainably capture and retain your audience. Often, the first thing a reader will do once they have heard about you—before buying your book—is look you up. If you don’t have compelling content on your channels that continues to engage them, inform them, you may lose them forever. Without compelling content, your PR and marketing ends up getting you attention you may not be able to keep or leverage. With Bookstr’s support and services, you will be able to create effective ways to turn any one-off interaction into creating lifelong fans, who will continuously  consume, engage and share about what you have to offer.

Additionally, these channels, and the strategies and content created, become valuable assets for every book and business venture for your professional future.
