If you are thinking of building and/or revamping your website or simply bolting on an eBookstore then you’ll probably come across all sorts of different solutions, platforms and providers that look and sound like they will do the job. On further investigation we imagine that one or two of these will fall short of the mark. Before you jump we’d like you to at least speak to us. Although we are sure that you know your business inside out, from our experience it also pays you to know a little about ours – web development that is. And particularly web development for the publishing world, which has some very quirky nuances.

Call us, we will listen to your requirements, we will ask questions about your business and finally we will give you some succinct, straight forward and impartial advice. No obligation. We will do this because Firsty is independent, because we know what a minefield the web development marketplace is and because we understand what it takes to create a sensible web presence for companies within publishing.

Firsty is well placed to build successful publisher websites. Why? Because we’ve been building eCommerce enabled websites for more than 15 years and for the last 5 years we have focused almost exclusively on the digital and web requirements of publishers, distributors, authors and others across publishing.

Our website development services give publishers all they need to:

  • promote, sell and distribute their titles in all formats
  • forge a strong relationship with their readers and attract new ones
  • build brand awareness
  • maintain a robust and future proof web presence

Web development services can be expensive, but it won’t cost you anything to talk to us. And if you do end up investing in your online presence you might be surprised by what you can achieve within your budget.
