Marketing Loft [Public] / Re: AMS advice for the comically inept

October was my best month so far - sales up 60% - w/most of that increase from the point at which I began applying Bryan's ideas.  Reads barely increased, tho'.  My herd of sacrificial goats is about to be -1.

They also have a coupon on cookies--but it's only available in store. :icon_cry:

I have just returned 6 of my books to D2D during that period, and they all are live on B&N.

When you say returned I assume you mean they had been on D2D/B&N before, then you unpublished, then you republished? And they went through no problem?

Edit - they are having a big Black Friday sale, that's on now, apparently. Paper books only.

It seems like I've been selling less and less on B&N each month. I didn't really notice because Apple has been picking up and then some where they dropped off on D2D. B&N used to be pretty good for me on D2D and I was able to move full price books there with Bookbub ads, profitably. Only sales platform I ever made that work.

The two sales AMS is crediting to itself showed up immediately. I've yet to have a sale show up later. Anybody have a similar or the opposite experience.

Lily & Simon - warm congratulations on your results.  :pdt :pdt

I'm wondering if I should try some ads in the UK this week as people may be less distracted there by other events as opposed to the US right now.

Also I'm wondering if both my psych thriller and WWII book blurbs are turning people off because they don't exactly indicate happy endings. Not sure that's what people want right now. Maybe I should concentrate on the romances.

The last two days have seen my royalties double the 3 week average. Page counts still creeping up. Ad spend still modest but increasing. (15-20% of royalties the past 2 days, but I'd take that given the increase.)

Since a lot of people are talking about a dip in sales, I'm heartened to report that the second half of October was much better for my books. I am on track to double my Amazon payout from what it had sunk to a couple of months ago (the payment that we got this week). Not great, but certainly less tragic. I ascribe this to having launched several dozen Amazon category ads in addition to a few auto ads and fine tuning a keyword ad.

Or maybe that goat sacrifice worked. grint

I published my latest about a week ago and it isn't on B&N yet.  I use D2D.  And I do get sales there, so I hope they will fix the issues.
