I’ve had some requests to reveal how well my book launch has been going, and I have no problem with doing that for you guys and girls.
The release of my first book has actually been going very well. I’ve managed to get up on several Amazon lists even though I haven’t had the time to do any real advertising. Below you can see a pic that shows the highest point my rankings have hit, about 2 days ago.
They are a little lower now but my sales are holding steady. They started lower but slowly went up for a week, and now I’m selling over a hundred a day. I have no idea how long that will last, though. New releases can drop to nothing after a while. I spent some money on internal Amazon ads but those did nothing for me. I made no sales from them, which was disappointing.
My experience so far is very good for a first time author on Amazon. A lot of people make next to nothing, and I’m doing a lot better than that. However, I’m doing about average compared to other authors in my circle of acquaintances. They are a successful bunch. 🙂
My main goal right now is to keep my sales from suddenly dropping off, and the best thing to help this is to build up reviews. I need reviews badly. So please review my book on Amazon.com, especially if you’ve purchased the ebook.
Thanks again for helping me out, everyone. This is all because of you!
