So, the second Kindle Nation Daily Sponsorship for “The Adventures of Whatley Tupper” was on Friday, and here’s the updated sales:
About 80 sales can be attributed to the ad, which compares to 65 the last time. Having more reviews surely helped this time around. Again, I have to say that I am always impressed with the effectiveness of the KND sponsorship. No other advertising tool that I’m aware of comes even close. And these sales do not include people who would have downloaded samples and have not yet made a purchase.
Of note: I sold more than last time (which was in early October) but my sales ranking didn’t come near my previous peak (in October, my ranking made it into the 500’s, this time no higher than the 1300’s). This shows that people are buying a lot more ebooks of late–which is good news for any author, except for those obsessed with their sales rankings. I would guess that Amazon Kindle book sales must be close to double what they were back in the autumn. I think that at this rate, in another year or two cracking the 10 000 mark will become quite an acheivement.
Finally, I have three more KND sponsorships lined up: Mid-March for “The Year We Finally Solved Everything,” early April for “Whatley Tupper” and April 30th for the release of “The Redemption of Mr. Sturlubok.”
