I decided to give an Amazon countdown a shot

I decided to do a countdown deal on Amazon but I did not have it drop all the way to 99 cents but did drop it for eighty hours down to $1.99 and after eighty hours it goes up to $2.99 before returning after eighty more hours back to its regular price of $3.99. I didn’t  want to cheapen my book by dropping it all down to less than a dollar. The countdown started yesterday and will run through April 12, 2016.  You can find it at this link: http://www.amazon.com/Lightning-Tunnel-In-Beginning-Book-ebook/dp/B017PL35Y4/ref=pd_rhf_se_p_img_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=0QEBZD5M22PY4FMB2EC4  Of course those on Amazon Prime can downloaded it for free.

The first time I did place a book for 99 cents or less. I had over two hundred downloads on the first day but have not sold that one since then. So I bought into on LinkedIn writer saying that if you do so, it cheapens your work and when you do put the price back, most won’t pay that price waiting on you to lower your price. Another item, I only got two reviews on that book from all those I gave away.

Thanks, talk back, I’m listening. ALWAYS!

  1. I would love to know more about how to do an Amazon countdown.
    My first book, I don’t control the price because I went through a company. I’m getting ready to publish my second book through CreateSpace and KDP, so I’m interested in learning more about how to do giveaways and such. I think your input regarding the .99 is interesting. I’ve heard it both ways, some like it, some don’t.

    • Hi Wanda, it is simple to do once you put it on KDP select. You are given a choice under the promotion tab of selecting how many steps on a count down deal you want. Depending on the price you give to your ebook whether it will go in three steps or two or one. I selected two steps so it would not start at 99 cents since my price was $3.99 normally. Anything less than that, you could find yourself offering the book for free for X number of days. The countdown runs for five days. A.G. ps- Wanda if you need help email me at agmoye.moye406@gmail.com
