Has anyone done any good stats on the difference price points of 99 cents, 1.99 or 2.99?
Amanda, now there's an example of a smart, well-researched reason to sell at 1.99! Thanks so much for posting a response to that question of mine. And come back to let us all know how it goes!Amanda Brice said:I chose $1.99 as opposed to 99 cents because I'm not looking for so-called bargain hunters. I've looked at my also-boughts, and ignoring the books that are not in my genre (which is YA contemporary romance, including with suspense elements), I've found that the average price of the books in my also-boughts list is $5.83, which is significantly higher than the $2.99 I sell at. And the best selling books in this genre really aren't the 99 centers (there are a few, but not many). In fact, even the best-selling indies in this genre tend to be priced between $2.99 and $5.99.
. . .
I've only been at $1.99 for a couple of days, though, so I can't really say whether it has helped yet. But I'm confident the lower price will lead to a ranking boost soon. I cna only hope, right?
