The final numbers are in from my book blitz!
The promo was featuring Got Mine at a discounted price of $.99 (from $2.99).
BookBub Featured Deal: $272 (Ad ran for one day: Wednesday, November 29th)
Robin Reads: $65 (Featured in the November 29th email)
Facebook Ads: $250 (Ran from Nov 29-Dec 5th)
Book Blitz: $90 (Ran Nov 29-Dec 5th)
TOTAL SPENT: $677
Prior to November 29, 2017 I had ZERO sales on Kobo, iBooks, Nook, or any of the other 24 places Draft2Digital makes your book for sale. Sales as of Friday Dec 1st:
Got Mine was sitting at about 499,000 before the promo.
It made it down to #345 in the Kindle Paid Store.
Cause hindsight is 20/20: I should’ve removed the book from KDP because the pages read on KU do not count towards actual book sales. During the promo/blitz I had 44,823 pages read. Those pages could’ve been actual sales, that could’ve gotten me closer to a best seller’s list. But it is what it is.
Was it worth it?
I will most likely break even for this promo once all the royalties are calculated but I’m still getting sales on Nook, iBooks and Kobo as well as Amazon. I gained followers on my author page and members in my group. So far, I have one new Amazon review. Even though I didn’t make a best seller list, I think the blitz was a success.
Here are my final thoughts:
