I'm looking to splash a bit of hard earned cash on some eBook advertising.
Has anyone had any good experiences with advertising online? What places have you found that give a good return for the investment / hits on web pages etc?
At the moment, I'm looking at Night Owl sci-fi dot com - they look good and seem to have some pretty good advertising rates.
I've got a new banner ad nearing completion and will probably follow up with a flash version with some eye-catching animation.
This is really good information. I wonder what the average click-to-purchase ratio is for book ads through Google.
Thanks for this, I think others will find it helpful as well.
Here's a question, have you seen any raised traffic overall this month, despite click throughs? I find when I go to sites with multiple advertisements, if I am interested I rarely click because I don't want to leave the site I'm currently on yet. (If I'm even aware you can click) I write it down on notepad or remember it to check it later. Others might be like me.
No. Overall traffic wasn't affected in a positive way at all - so colour me officially disappointed.
HOWEVER, we tried putting the Alter Inferno series at 99cents for a spell, and sales immediately took off overnight.
Elysium Burning was at #51 and #57 in it's categories on Amazon, and #7996 overall as a result. So, cheaper to burn a handful of dollars in royalties and get some SALES than spend money on a banner ad!!
