The last post regarding e-book advertising costs to sales kind of exploded. Now, that sounds very violent, but I don’t mind, because if there’s one thing I love, it’s data goo.
Now my partner in crime, fantasy author Nicholas C. Rossis, has hit on the genius idea of asking you authors – yes, you out there – for your own advertising results. If you have marketed your own book, please visit his site and take his survey: just 3 tiny wee questions will take only 2 minutes but make some data lovers (like me) very happy, but more importantly, contribute to invaluable information which will be promptly re-released to you, on which advertising methods have worked, and which have not.
