Well all but one of my promotion has run. I spent $82.95 and can attribute about 40 sales, maybe a couple more, to those promos. While it’s nice to see that spike from sales yesterday, and I did get into the top 5k in the store, and made it on a couple lists, I did not make back the money I spent. I was hoping to see some sales today riding off the high of yesterday, but I have not. My book still has a couple days on the countdown deal and I’m curious to see what happens when it’s over, but I’m not sure if I will advertise at those places again.
For me when I advertise somewhere I’d like to get every penny back that I spent on the ads. Maybe that’s not how you’re supposed to do it, I’m not sure, but that’s how I would like for it to happen. There are a couple places that I still plan on trying that turned me down before, but for now I think I’m going to wait until I have the paperback edition and I’ve paid someone to proofread everything.
