Rules for a Successful #FREEebook KDP Promotion; Alchemy; TRASH into GOLD

Had my best weekend ever! Sold 460 books on Amazon! How did I do it?

Continue reading…

So…

Spent 10 years writing my first novel…

Don’t tell them the name of your novel yet; don’t be a GREEDY PIGGY; that’s SPAM; give them VALUE FIRST then a PLUG is OK.

…please excuse my random musings.

Published my novel, did the KDP free promotion thing, sold my first few, then I decided:

  • if one free promotion is good, two free promotions will be better, right?

WRONG!

My first free promotion got me noticed; I made my first real sales the following week; then I did ANOTHER free promotion.

What no one told me; YOU MUST KNOW:

A book, that is actually SELLING, will move DOWN in the RANKINGS during a FREE GIVEAWAY!

Wow!

No one told me this; I’m telling YOU.

Amazon paid rankings are based on what you have actually sold, NOT based on downloads.

First free promotion a Saturday in November, first and only book yielded about 30 downloads.

Within 5 days I got my first real sale; within 24 hours my second real sale; my book went to the best sellers ranking in Time Travel.

I wish I could FUCKING go back in time; undo this decision; the second free giveaway the following week nearly destroyed my novels prospect’s; nearly banished my novel to the bowels of Amazon for eternity

My thoughts at the time:

If I have ANOTHER FREE PROMOTION; I should get 100s of free downloads and an even higher ranking, followed by even more real sales

The opposite happened.

Second week free promotion yielded about 20 free downloads (less than first week), after that my book was no longer ranked, it drifted steadily downwards until last week.

This leads to:

  • RULE 1: Never give away a book that is highly ranked and already selling (even sporadically).

I went back to the drawing board.

So what works???

It was at this point in writing this blog post; I pulled these words into Scrivener to write a book specifically to help other authors sell on Amazon.

Novel Roadkill comes in two packets free on Amazon today:

Amazon books can be read on ANY device, iPad, Iphone, Android, Windows, Mac…

Updates…

Had a very successful day yesterday!

Sold 100 books in one day, a personal best!

Sex Majik, a Furai Compilation short story, shot up to # 5 in the free category!

Sex Majik is about a used car salesman, down on his luck, who meets a mysterious stranger in a bar, The Furai, who teaches him how to use majik to draw two beautiful women to himself for a menage a trois.

This is the first, or the last book of a time travel series, (depending on your perspective).

It does not require you to have read any of the other books, it’s a stand alone work.

This book is free on Amazon for a limited time.
