So this week I get a reality check. Anyone want to take bets on whether I'm delusional or if I might be onto something. Say WHAT? You say...
Well see THIS WEEK I am offering up my first FOR FREE and releasing my second in my Shot in the Light serial.
The questions go something like this:
Can I give it away? (how many downloads will I get with that FREE pricetag?)
And if I DO give it away, will it lead to PURCHASES?
I could use all of your HELP on that front. [Note: This is the BIGGER favor] Anyone willing to share THIS, would be HUGELY appreciated!
The LITTLER favor:
Could you please, even if I sent you one for free, click BUY on Thursday. It's free. It's easy. And I am HOPING that click will help me get a good ranking on the old free book thing... It is one of those things Amazon adds to their promo algorithm.
In Other Attempts...
I sent a copy of book 2 to anyone who reviewed book 1 by yesterday—I don't know what the 'sweet spot' is for number of reviews, but I DO know that Amazon takes it into account when they are promoting. I think if there are enough reviews, then THEY do my advertising FOR ME. That's where I want to be. But I think the number of reviews needed is like 30.
It got a couple people to post reviews, so it worked on some level.
