Believe it or not, I lowered my prices down to 99cents across the board because I want to write full-time.
At first this may seem like a strange way of doing it. Lowering prices when looking to turn this writing gig into my main source of income, but I assure you, there is a method to my madness. I hope.
The need to lower my prices is driven by one simple fact.
My books are not selling!
This is reason enough to search for a new method of generating sales. Selling anything at any price is better than not selling a single title at a higher price. That being said, I also have no intention of keeping my prices at this price for the rest of eternity. Maybe a few of them, as they get older, but not everything. John Locke I am not.
Anyway, at this moment in time, I am not looking for money. Again, I have logic here.
People need to know who I am.
I need people to know me, otherwise, I won’t get very far. I am on a rather disappointing (a post for later I am sure) blog your right now, and selling books will get readers recognizing me name. I need reviews, the more reviews I get, the better various algorithms like me, and the more my name is seen.
Can you see the pattern here too? It took me a long time to see it.
Currently, all of my books are ranked over the 600k mark on Amazon, some even over the 1 million point. This is not good enough! and it will change.
I am going to be pimping my new low-priced books like mad, I am hoping others will help share the message.
Rank is what I seek, not riches.
I will be keeping a close eye on everything and tweaking my tactics here any there, and I will update the results regardless of the positive or negative trajectory.
Maybe I have it all wrong, but what I have now is not working, so it cannot hurt!
