Marketing Loft [Public] / Re: BookBub Featured New Release- Worth It?
« Last post by notthatamanda on October 19, 2019, 10:05:03 PM »
Based on what people have been saying I didn't even consider the featured new release when it came out.  I have been running bookbub ads for the new book, sold one on B&N, I put the full price in the ad to hopefully discourage clicks from people who don't want to pay full price.  I have only sold the one so I've lost a couple of bucks on the experiment so far, but literally a couple of bucks, not hundreds.  Still experimenting with B&N targeted ads.

Bookbub sends out a new release notification to your followers anyway.

There's a thread at Kboards where the author describes how they tried to launch a full price book ($6.99 I think) with a BB new release, and they called it a catastrophe disaster. A $1600 spend to sell a couple of books, IIRC. The consensus was that BB readers expect a discounted price.

ETA: Here's the thread: https://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,306769.0.html

I haven't run a Featured New Release with Bookbub but from reading others' experiences, the answer tends to be: no, not worth it.

Seems to be very expensive, and I've yet to hear about anyone making their money back from it - it might work if you're a big name author, or have a massive marketing budget.

If you get a Featured Deal (for a discounted book) that's different - most people make their money back from that. (And they're really difficult to get!)

Have you thought about running Bookbub ads? Again, not something I've done, but they seem to be working for some people.

Congratulations!!!

You know it gets easier from here, right? I mean, it's not really easy, but once you've finished one, you know you can do it!

Congratulations!   :banana: :dance: :banana-riding-llama-smiley-em :banana-riding-llama-smiley-em :banana-riding-llama-smiley-em :dance: :banana:

I'm a little confused, though.  Did you write five previous books that you failed to finish?  Or did you start with book 6 of the series and will write the other books later?

Well done! Give yourself a pat on the back, pour a glass of your tipple of choice - and get on with the next one!  :dance: :dance:
