Happy Monday, WG2E-Land!
Wow…what a difference my “Ridin’ The Free-Way Experiment” has made in my Indie Epubbed Ebook Sales!!!
Check this out…
I’m now selling over 5000 Ebooks a month, just on Kindle…the same amount it took me over a year to sell prior to September 8, 2011 (the day Bootscootin’ Blahniks went Free on Kindle US)!!!
I’m now selling more books in one month, just on Kindle, than I sold all of the last twelve months combined!!!
Remember, back on August 1st, when I told you I’d hit the 5000th Ebook Sold mark?
Well now…just two months later, and less than one month since I began my “Ridin’ The Free-Way Experiment”, I’ve now sold over 12,500 books…just on Kindle!!!
***Note: Based on my current rankings on both B&N and iPad, I’m guestimating the actual total to be around 15,000.***
Just look at the change in my monthly totals for each of my five fiction books between August 2011 and September 2011 (again…just on Kindle):
BOOTSCOOTIN’ BLAHNIKS = 196
STOMPIN’ ON STETSONS = 247
BUCKLES ME BABY = 164
THUG GUARD = 201
LIP GLOCK = 171
BOOTSCOOTIN’ BLAHNIKS = 39,794 (Free Downloads)
STOMPIN’ ON STETSONS = 1965
BUCKLES ME BABY = 1535
THUG GUARD = 562
LIP GLOCK = 934
A total Wow and Then Some, Right?!
Now then…I’m not saying this to boast about my success. And y’all know it’s not the money from the additional sales that matters to me.
It’s the fact I’m reaching thousands of new readers a month now, and am able to pay it forward with all of you by sharing what techniques and experiments are sooo working.
That’s what all this means to me…
Paying It Forward
And I’m not the only one having superfab success with my “Ridin’ The Free-Way Experiment”…check out the Kindle Board Thread I started on this topic, and you’ll meet tons more Indie Epub Authors experiencing the same levels of success I am:
Why Do I Think Ridin’ The Free-Way Worked For Me?
1. I used the first book in my first series…so that those readers who “found” me for Free then had several additional books to buy.
2. I have two series – The Bootscootin’ Books and The Cozy Cash Mysteries. But I’ve cross-pollinated those books by bringin’ my readers fave Bootscootin’ Books’ characters along for my Cozy Cash Mystery comedic capers.
3. All five of my books are now at that magical 99 Cent Price Point. With my Free book, readers can buy all five for just $3.96!!!
