One-click publishing

PubWriter is a 'web canvas' that allows you to publish and manage your web content through Dropbox on your own domain. You create (or edit) your page, hit save and seconds later, it's published on your website. There's nothing to upload, patch, or maintain. It's the first true 'Save-to-Publish' solution.

Key components the framework provides include:

  1. Google webmaster tools to improve your SEO.
  2. Google analytics (weekly or monthly reports).
  3. Links to your social media pages.
  4. Links to your product & preview pages.
  5. Contact us form.
  6. Seamless branding w/your book (familiar fonts/colors).

Advantages PubWriter offers over other web publishing platforms:

  1. Your entire site is backed up at all times and on your own Dropbox account (allowing access from any device).
  2. It's mobile friendly (as much as 50% of all web traffic is now mobile).
  3. It's a static page so it loads extremely fast (helpful for your Google ranking).
  4. It uses Markdown which allows you to use pretty much any editor on any platform (as long as it supports plain text).
  5. It runs on the Bootstrap framework (which offers an ever expanding array of plugins and tools to enhance your site).
  6. You can share your Dropbox with an editor (or collaborator) who can edit your work and his/her changes will be applied to your site when they hit save (no more back & forth emailing files).
