Thanks! (I didn't bother to try a second time--figured I had enough lined up for this promo. However, I will try again it in the future since it's supposed to be a good promo site.)Frank Tayell said:This is for state taxes (I think it only applies to Texas, and basically they want to know if you're from the Lone Star State). I wrote in 'United Kingdom' and it went through no problems.
Good Luck with the promotion
Hi, it was a paid ad for a 0.99 book, but don't worry. I've used your service before with good results on a different book. It was March Break here, not sure if Spring Break is the same in the states, but lots of people were on vacation etc, so I think it might just have been bad timing. Booksbutterfly was surprised it didn't sell like they thought it should either. So I'm going with bad timing.Vinny OHare said:Hi Lisa
Was your book on Awesomegang using a paid featured ad or the free version? Either way I would like to investigate as those numbers sound really bad.
Awesome!!Lisa_Blackwood said:Just had to post this. lol. If I can remember how to post an image. (I know the ranking is more of a molehill than a mountain, but I'm proud at the moment anyway. Maybe I can get a Bookbub ad next time. That would have been cool.)
Amazon really does like a slow gradual climb. Cool. Thank you Wayne and everyone else I stole promo site ideas from.
I know, scheduling is the difficult part. Other things I would change for next time would be to change up my blurb--it could be better. It's the one thing I looked at and realized I'd dropped the ball on. And I'd also do a KCD instead of just a regular 0.99. I knew I would be taking a hit of royalties, but wanted it to be available to as many people as possible, but after seeing that most of my sales came from .com and .uk, I think I'll just do it as a countdown instead. (Just leaving it at the 0.99 prize point for as long as possible.)donna callea said:Thank you for posting your results. I've got a weeklong 99 cent promo slated next month for my fantasy romance using many of the same sites. I've also ended up scheduling more than one ad site on some of the promo days. Makes it harder to figure out where the sales are coming from, but what can you do?
Wishing you great success as you go forward.
