What are Amazon doing now? [Public] / Re: Amazon encouraging Pre-Orders?
« Last post by Marti Talbott on July 13, 2019, 10:12:07 AM »
I haven't tried a pre-order in ages. Since I'm wide, I never could get the booksellers to release them on the same day. Any hints?

That's really not a bad price, especially since you don't see a lot of complete sets and some sellers won't ship it from the UK. And it would be amazingly helpful to have. Really.  :icon_rolleyes:

Congrats!

Anything above a 2% CTR is considered a win, right?

To Dan's question, BookBub ads are built on targeting the 'readers' of specific authors. They define 'readers' as anyone who has interacted at BookBub with anything to do with that author. It's frequently a number that is at least twice as many of the publicly shown 'followers', and the only way to see the 'readers' number is to go into the ad setup system.

I did not know that, thanks.  So fourteen followers x 2 = slightly less pathetic?

I guess you could start an ad to yourself and see what it gives you.

Edit - and I just did it.  Try it, it's fun.  2881 "followers"  So a factor of 200.
I never did very well with Bookbub ads so I'm not really concerned but I think they should call it something other than followers, if it's not followers.

I am also looking longingly at a 1908 set of Paul Balfour's Scots Peerage, 9 volumes, for only $548. Sometimes an addiction to research is a bit like a heroin addiction.   :icon_cry:

As a bargain hunter I will support you in this.

Research is always better with a book (or 9) in your hand.

I signed up for three categories at BookBub (Young Adult, Thriller, Science Fiction) so I could get the daily newsletter and watch the ads they serve to me. As an experiment, I held off opening the ad until later in the day to see if it serves a different set of ads - under the assumption that the early ads expend their budgets and then let the lower budget ads come through later in the day. My thought process is that the late-in-the-day ads are the ads with lower budgets. I was expecting lower-quality books/ads to serve later in the day, but so far it kinda appears that the reverse is true. The books/ads aren't necessarily worse, but they hold their own against the ads that serve if I open the email in the morning.

So I'm told. Considering how many times I've tried (and lost money on) BB ads, I'm happy to finally have a win. Best of all the Effective CPC is only 29 cents which I think is good on a novel with good sell-through in the series.
