PublishDrive in the Media

These are our values

 

We are Global and diverse

PublishDrive is a global operation that serves content creators and publishers from all over the world – in over 190 countries. Our partners are international too, repping the U.S., U.K., Europe, China, Russia, Southeast Asia, and more.

Honesty and transparency

We maintain a transparency by sharing information openly, deliberately, and candidly. We don’t shy away from sharing hard truths. On the other hand, we receive constructive feedback with open minds. 

We are Innovative 

PublishDrive stems from thinking outside of the box and disrupting the publishing industry. That required courage and the urge to look for creative solutions. In essence, we are innovative.

We are flexible

Most of us work remotely, not adhering to certain work hours or styles. Everyone is encouraged to do what works for them best. Again, we celebrate results (not the amount of hours clocked in). We also react to industry trends, meaning there are times when we need to recalibrate our plans.

We dream big

Our vision is to make PublishDrive the #1 global self-publishing platform. It’s ambitious, but we thrive on challenges. We push ourselves to the next level, knowing our work makes a difference for our customers and the publishing landscape at large.

Value Centricity

Success and value will not come from simply growing bigger as a company, our mission is to add value not only to individuals but to everyone around us by striving to be better. We listen to our customers’ needs and prioritize our developments around them.
