I thought Bookbub ads costs in the $1000+ range? What kind of ad is for $$289 because that's fantastic for the return you're getting.

Hi Mary Rose. The ad cost $289 and was a promo for the free first in series.

It paid for itself in sales of the sequels within 24 hours. Everything since is pure profit. Cheers!

    The price depends on the genre. Large genres like romance will cost more. G was in humor, which is a smaller category.

    It depends on genre and price.

    Humor is a smaller category (only 1.2m subscribers compared to say Thriller with 4m+) so costs less than a bigger one. Plus a Free promo costs less than a discounted promo. It's promos charging 0.99c or above in larger categories that you see costing $1k or more.

    Sorry, should have continued updating this.

    Yes, I was selling maybe one book a day before the promo, maybe a handful of pagereads.

    Been making over 100 a day every day since the Bookbub, and it doesn't show any signs of stopping. Got the tenth book ready to release on Sunday/Monday too, so that will boost things further, a new release always does.

    So yeah, very very worthwhile.

    Haha thanks guys.

    Unicorn - what's annoying is that near;y I got to this point two years ago WITHOUT a Bookbub, by steadily releasing sequel after sequel. The sales jumped every time a new book came out. But then life happened, changes of jobs, moving house etc, and I just stopped writing for nearly two years.

    So this unexpected Bookbub will hopefully be the thing to get the ball rolling again, and I can keep working on this series, keep releasing new sequels, and hopefully grow it even further.

    That's the plan, anyway. We'll see what happens lol!
