Repricing our eBooks on iTunes and Amazon.com
We haven’t sold a book on either outlet for quite a while. I sold a copy of “Sucia Dawn” to a lady at church last month, but that was a friend. I have never had a good feel for the right price for our eBooks. We originally priced “Sucia Dawn” at $9.99, “Endure” we gave away since it was only one poem and more of a ministry offering. Then, our first photo essay, “Wildfire at Lake Elsinore” we priced at $4.99 to see how it moved. It didn’t.
So, I was going to reprice everything at $1.00 for a while to stimulate sales, or try to. I know I also need to investigate ways of increasing traffic to our website and Facebook page as well.
When I went to Amazon.com, where we only have “Sucia Dawn” available, I found I could not price it below $2.99. So, I priced both eBooks at that price and we’ll see how they fare.
I will let you know if there is any change. I will also let you know what I find regarding methods of increasing traffic to my website, obviously a key to any on-line business.
Updated: There are rules about different pricing on iTunes versus Amazon.com, so it seems best to keep the prices the same. Since this post was originally written, we have left these titles at the sale prices to encourage sales during our transition.
