A short while back, I wrote about the new publishing site. Since that time, I have received some emails as to how well I have been doing with book sales.
As a reminder, I only sell digital products there. Anything print is sold through Amazon. This has worked rather well (particularly since Amazon began discounting the book).
I should note that I also sell the digital products on Amazon as well. So why, you ask, is that important?
While sales have been slow on the new website, I have recently been experiencing a noticeable bump in sales at Amazon. I don't do any marketing right now towards Amazon. Everything is really pushed toward Degree Press.
And yet, a significant bump in sales.
My guess? People find the product on Degree Press and go buy it on Amazon.
And I'm fine with that. However I get the sale works for me.
Right now, the eBooks sell for the same price on both sites. If I sell it on Degree Press, I do make more money. That being said, I never turn down sales.
Here's a good one, though. This appears to be driving up sales of the print book even though I don't even sell that on the site.
Works for me.
