It's been a while.
I am tired.
I am also thrilled. The third book in my series launched a couple of days ago.
I finished my first month of sales on KDP Select through Amazon.
A few hundred people read my books and I made a few bucks. But more importantly, I learned a ton!
Where do I advertise? For how much? who reads this stuff anyways?
Two things that really helped me through my first month was:
This company is awesome and I was able to ad over 50 new email addresses to my mailing in one week list this way. And it keeps going up.
That is 50 strangers who read a chapter of one of my books and want to read more! Super cool!
Pay the $20/month subscription, it's worth it!~
The second thing that helped my sales a ton was:
This is Amazons advertising.
You get to pick your own key words. And it can be tricky. But I was really impressed with how Amazon tracks everything.
Down to the cost per click when someone clicks on one of my books.
First thing I learned that is invaluable:
My goals for the next month are to market my stuff smarter and not waste as much money.
I am hoping to sell more this month because I have four books out total.
We will see.
It is still exciting to see my stuff out there and to know that someone in Australia even bough my book!
Lessons learned. Pages written. A lot accomplished.
I am out!!!
Until next time.
