Storybird meets you wherever you’re at professionally. Authors can use Storybird as a place to develop/grow a new audience, or expand an existing one. It can serve as a launching pad for new talent, or a dynamic opportunity for already-published authors. It’s also a great place to experiment with new styles, themes, writing techniques, characters, and ideas in front of a live and responsive audience.
On the creative side, we offer a level of control (over things like artwork, publication schedule and frequency, editing decisions, expert consultation, series/franchise development, and more) that is uncommon in the traditional publishing world, while also providing built-in engagement and marketing, rather than requiring you fragment your efforts across the internet. And these choices can be evolving and experimental, too; they don’t have to be determined in advance.
On the business side, we track data and metrics around every installment you publish and share that info transparently, so that you and your team can make informed, productive publishing choices. But no pressure—it’s always up to you if (and how) you want to let reader reactions or data influence your creative process.
