Same as to Ebooks Pricing
Though e-books have been around for a long while, many individual writers are still puzzling over how to praise their e-books to optimize revenues and profitability. ÿ On the other hand, the ebook is a great source of information. Precosting self-published e-books can seem particularly confusing when commercial publishers often prise their authors' e-books closely to the costs of printing epar. The cynic may wonder if they are trying to get people to buy the books because the differences in prices are so small.
What should self-published writers do? Examine out the going rates for other individual e-books in your Genres and of the same length: you are likely to find a block around a certain rate point your targeted group will be prepared in order to spend. Nonfiction is usually more expensive than literature.
Forget what the big-name writers in your field demand, because celebrity writers can charge a bonus that their enthusiastic supporters are willing to afford. Although a 70% discount can give you the highest possible license fee, there is a stop where more purchases at 35% will give you more overall profits (and more readers) than fewer volumes that will be available at the higher rates.
For one thing, if you typically assess ledgers at the lowest cost rates of $99c, if others sell similar indie ledgers in the $2. 99+ parenthesis, readers can easily suppose they are no good and ignore them. The first in a row cheaper: if you can get people to take a punting boat on the first in your row and like what they are reading, they are willing to pay higher prizes for further books in the row - and possibly a bonus for each new release, at least when it comes out first.
A number of writers even make the first in a set free - although many shy away from devaluing their work in this way, or just can't get themselves to give away their work for nothing. Look at specific rollout pricing for pre-orders: alternative, by fixing a lower rollout rate for a tight maturity, say $2. 99 instead of your longtime $3. 99 or 4. 99 for the first month, on the other hand, you can inspire reader to buy earlier rather than later and so help kick-start selling for your latest product.
Get help from Amazon: on the KDPashboard' s prices page, you'll find a convenient utility that will tell you the prices at which your books are sold most at. Experimentation: You can always alter your prize and it is always a good idea to try until you reach the sweepspot. Remember that it can take a while for changes in prices to be introduced on Amazon websites around the globe.
If you are working with KDP Select, you can also use the Kindle Countdown Utility, which will vary the price for the course of a particular promotional activity. Follow Amazon's rules: If you go far, i.e. use other eBook vendors instead of staying exclusively with KDP Select, you may not ask for lower rates elsewhere, and if you do, Amazon will probably collect you and ask for a new one.
