Ejunkie vs Gumroad - is one better than the other?

Started by Jen McDonough "The Iron Jen". Last reply by Carey Green Dec 6. 18 Replies

Hi Gang,I currently use Ejunkie for my store. It seems okay and I get how to set up coupon codes and products as I get them. Recently a friend suggested "GumRoad" as he said it was VERY easy to use. Is there one that is better than the other? I do…Continue

If anyone if interested in having their book narrated, I'd love to offer my services through Fiverr.com. I've been doing this through them for about a month now, and I'm really enjoying it. I currently offer 500 words for $5, but I also have and extra where I'll do upto 3,000 words for another $20. For 48days members, I'll do 5,000 words for the $20 extra - just make sure to mention it when you order. http://jrivers.us/narration

Right on Camilla! Love having those screenshots for later promos.

Comment by Camilla Kragius on December 10, 2014 at 10:29am

Thanks Tony! I keep going up and down. Learning a lot and definitely going to do a promo boost here shortly. Plus I'm getting onto podcast's and more. But today I hit a milestone with my book being ahead of Dave Ramsey when someone search "how to get out of debt" on Amazon. I know it has to do with the title of course but nonetheless a huge motivation booster! And an honor too.

That's awesome Camilla. Yes, you can fall out of sight without many sales on Kindle. That's what Amazon wants to see. Look at different ways to promote your book to different audiences, via Flash Sales (read about mine in the discussion), buying traffic, etc. 

Mine have done the same thing and I have come to the conclusion that we will do quarterly promos to boost our exposure to our audience and new ones.

I'm not even supposed to be sharing this yet.... but, EEEEEEEK!

Kindle pre-sale is ALIVE!

Comment by Camilla Kragius on December 3, 2014 at 8:34am

Thanks Tony! Sales the first week put me high up in all categories (#9 in business) books but I'm dropping and think I'm now 285,000 overall on Kindle...so stepping up my marketing efforts.

However, the launch lead to a few new coaching clients and people starting to connect me with what I do coaching wise, which was the main idea behind the book so overall I'm happy about the launch week.

Hey DIYer's!

Dan has an awesome deal right now on Write to the Bank that I wanted to share. Both in physical and electronic versions ($24 $117 code: WTTBE2014 / $48 $197 code: WTTBP2014)

I'm sharing this because Write to the Bank was the imputes for me to write my first book and many more since. Not only was it helpful in formulating my idea, but more importantly it talks about marketing your book.

For this super special he has right now it's a steal that will be treasured for many years to come.

Happy writing!
