I know you're all just waiting for me to post more of my numbers. Well, I won't keep you waiting any longer. Here's what's been happening this month so far with my sales:
1st: 116 sold. (Wow, what happened that day?)
2nd: 50 sold.
3rd: 66 sold.
4th: 56 sold.
5th: 34 sold.
6th: 30 sold.
7th: 35 sold.
As you can see, the month started off with a bang! And things have slowed down here lately. But I still am selling well beyond my 17 sales that I need to tie what I was doing before I dropped my price to 99 cents. So, even though I'm slowing down, I am still happy with the 99 cent price and plan on keeping the price for now.
As for what I will price my next book at... I'm really not sure. At first I thought I would start it out at $2.99 to see what it can do. Then I changed my mind, wanting to make a bigger bang with rank and decided to start it at 99 cents. Right now I keep waffling back and forth, not sure what I will do. I might try an introductory price of 99 cents, and see what happens. But I don't want to be locked into raising it if it's selling much better than Not What She Seems. So I'm torn.
Have you played around with your book price? I'd love to know if you have found that sweet spot for your book.
