Last week was the pre-launch of my new book “Blogging Tips: Confessions of a Six Figure Blogger” and during the 48 “free” promotion, over 9,000 copies of the book were downloaded through Amazon.com. I was actually expecting a much lower number, but thanks to all of the praise from the book and many people sharing it around the promotion went quite well.
At the high point the book was the #4 best seller out of ALL free NON-FICTION titles on Amazon, and ranked #22 of all free books on Amazon.
After the 48 hour free promotion, the book is still doing well and ranked #1 in the “Web Marketing” category.
Writing my own book has been a very time consuming yet amazing and awesome experience. The process of working with Amazon to get your book created, listed, printed and launched is quite the learning experience. There are plenty of books and guides out that that walk you through the process, but the best way to learn is to experience the full process yourself by launching a book of your own.
Here are a few pros and cons to note when launching your first book through Amazon.
Right now the book is currently in the top #10 for the three categories that it was indexed in on Amazon.
