Kimanzi...the comment about price is a great one. In fact, you might want to start a discussion about it so we can find it later. It's that good!

FYI...one reason I set my book prices higher than most is so that I can sell bulk orders and still generate decent revenue.

For instance, Who Wants To Be Normal, Anyway?! sells for $20 retail. Some might think that's a bit high. However, I just sold 150 in a bulk order before a speaking engagement for a 50% discount ($9.95 per book). In other words, the total of that order was  $1,492.50. If I set the retail price of that book at $12.95, the total of that sale would only be $970.50. That one little decision put an extra $522 in my pocket on this one sale.

So, as a speaker who happens to sell a lot of books in pre-event bulk orders, I definitely process pricing with this in mind.

Thanks, Kimanzi and Chris!  Winning the giveaway is a pleasant surprise.  I just sent you an email.

Way to go, Erin.  #5 is pretty amazing!

Sibyl, thanks for the heads up on the site.  I'll have to keep it in mind for the next promo.

Just picked up Platform by Michael Hyatt.  His promo ends at 5:00 am Central, so there's still time to grab the awesome bonuses.

Erin, that is so awesome! CONGRATS!!!  Amazon's Kindle top 10 - that deserves a "Button". I think I shared this before, but here is a "button" that I had Jeff Long make up for my signature line and websites. My book didn't "stay" in the top 100, however, it hit the top 100 so as I learned from Dan's WTTB conference, that gives one bragging rights.

Fun about the Kindle sales - I honestly didn't know there was a difference from Amazon sales. I checked mine out and it was at 48 under Triathlon for Kindle - button time!

Congrats Erin, I love how we learn so many useful things here :)

Comment by Erin Casey on May 25, 2012 at 3:55pm

My 1st book is holding steady at #5 in Children's Action & Adventure in the freebie list. Woohoo!

And the promotion is helping to drive sales of Book 2. Yippee! Thanks again for everyone's support. I told Jen McDonough I'm so thankful to have a network like 48days.net and Write it Forward. Y'all rock!

Thanks, Kimanzi! I hope they love it!

So true about the comment on price. You're selling the content/value, not the paper or MB count. Thanks for sharing.

Comment by Kimanzi Constable on May 25, 2012 at 2:24pm

For those with books or have books coming out, one of the biggest question is price. I would say 9 times out of 10 we under-price because we think that no one is willing to pay a higher price for an unknown book.

One thing Brendon Burchard talked about is knowing your value or the value of your product. So even if you have a 50 page book, price it by the value you know the reader will get, not by how long the book is.

When I got back from the conference I tested this theory by rasing my eBooks from $1.99 for one and .99 cents for the other to $4.97 for each. I am now selling double then I was at the cheaper price (I do realize PART of the reason is some extra exposure) sorry to rant like this, just something I was thinking about when I read this quote from Seth Godin:

"Cheapest price is the refuge for the marketer with no ideas left or no guts to implement the ideas she has."
