I was talking to a friend on the phone today. He was telling me how he was selling more books on Amazon. He said that he listed his book for free for a few days, offered it as some kind of promo and it stimulated sales of just about hundred of his books in about 48 hours. I was already blown away by the success he’s had selling his book to begin with. He has two books for sale on Amazon currently and he tried this with both books. One of the books sold more copies when the promo ended, but it’s also been listed on Amazon longer than the other book has, but I’m not sure it that had anything to do with the result. I’m not sure if there’s anything to this statistic, but I found it very interesting. I’m looking forward to publishing my book on Amazon in about 30 days, to see what kind of results I get and look forward to implementing his marketing strategies.
