Pricey Advertising – Should I or Shouldn’t I?

See on Scoop.itWriting and reading fiction

Robert Chazz Chute‘s insight:

Interesting that Mimi Barbour’s promoter advised not to price books up past 99 cents unless you’re above 5,000 in Amazon rankings. I hadn’t thought of it in those terms, but that does make some sense to me. Of course, I also know several authors who are pricing their books much higher and are doing well (but didn’t start there.) I also know authors who feel low prices devalue their work (some successful, many not.)

If something isn’t selling, experiment with the variables: price; cover; category etc.,…

Sometimes you hear people with a prejudice against 99 cent books. Are they a vocal minority who are quick to judge? Someone referred to 99 cents as a "bullshit price". However, with the value of free degraded (see the post directly below this one) maybe it’s not BS anymore.


I priced Bigger Than Jesus at 99 cents not because it’s crap but because it’s an introduction to a series. I priced Six Seconds low because, though useful, it’s short. My experimentation with pricing continues. I’ll let you know how it works out.


Meanwhile, learn at the Scoopit! link from Mimi Barbour at Believe.
