OK! Some of you who have been reading my posts might say, “Kate! You hypocrite! You said you loved the 99 cent ebook and then you priced your book at $2.99! What’s wrong with you?”
Yes, I did say I believed in the 99 cent ebook and I still do. But there is a reason I’ve done such a crazy thing as price my book higher. Discounts.
If I price my book at 99 cents, there is no way for me to get the attention that comes from discounting my books. I’m at the bottom and the last step is free. SO! I’m pricing at $2.99 now and then discounting a few times until it goes to 99 cents. Unless it sells like crazy and then we’ll see. I’m not going to mess with something that’s working.
Do you get my plan though?
Kate – all your books should be at least $2.99 (except for the short story) and the latest being longer, should be at least $3.99.
