Round one of our promotional group was a success - everyone got around 15 sales and were bumped into the top 20,000 sales rank at Amazon - some much higher. One person jumped up over 400,000 spots.
The pace was fairly hectic - two books a week was fine until the last week. So this time around, we're only featuring one book per week.
I hope to keep this group alive. Most enjoyed it although we had a few bumps along the way (like the three members of the group that decided not to buy any more books after their book was featured. Shame didn't work. So this time around, we are going to post proof of purchase).
The rules are fairly simple.
1. Set the price of your book at 99 cents
2. Buy all the books on their scheduled date
3. Post proof of purchase in a group email to all members
Unfortunately, I will not participate in this round due to family matters. But I will have plenty of time to set up a schedule, tweet each book on its day, etc.
We are still looking for a few more authors (as of March 14) - so if you read this before March 21 and are interested in trying out this experiment, email us at: email@example.com and follow us on twitter @BuyIndieBooksFor99
