Readers Like a Bargain

2 Apr

Into Day 3 of the Kindle Countdown Deal for All the Places I’ve Ever Been, and there has been a decided slow down of sales, even though the ebook is still only £3.99. So it would seem that it’s all about pricing, and getting the promotions right – maybe all the people who were going to buy it finally got round to it when I reminded them again that it was out there. Maybe people just aren’t willing to take too big a punt on a relative unknown.

My sister questioned if I should permanently reduce the price of the ebook, but the way Amazon works, this would reduce my royalty rate to 30%, whereas if I occasionally do Countdown Deals (allowed every 90 days), then I retain the 70% rate I normally get.

I has been very exciting doing this and getting a reasonable number of sales. If you’ve not snapped up a bargain yourself yet, you’ve got until 8.00am BST when the ebook returns to its list price. Remember, if you don’t own a Kindle, you can always get the paperback,or if you are an Amazon Prime customer you can borrow the ebook for free through Kindle Unlimited.
