I'm currently running an ad campaign to a permafree book.
At a cost of $25.00 (US), I've received about 700 downloads.
Thats a cost of 3.6 cents per download.

How much are your downloads costing?
And what cost are you shooting for?

I think my last free download campaign worked out at about $0.04 per download.

I think I had one review off the back of it, which to be honest seemed to be a review of a different book (five stars though, so never mind, eh?).

Free e-book downloads? They're not worth the paper they're not printed on ;)

Depends.    If you make sales on your other book, then the cost could be nothing and you could profit.

Please remember that readers don't always immediately read the download.

Who are you using? Those are great numbers!

Something that matters as much as downloads is what the sell-thru looks like.

But to answer your question: if I pay more than 10 cents per download, I feel ripped off. (Please, no one start saying how it's all about exposure. Please. Don't).

Perhaps you didn't expose enough.
Sorry couldn't resist and yes 10 cents a download sounds high.
