Playing with Pricing

  1. Thanks! I have to admit I just don't know much about marketing philosophy, and I'm trying REALLY hard to care, since I do have a product to get out there. What I do know, I'm learning from other indie authors who talk about their methods.

    We'll see how this goes. I do think this book is worth the $3.99, and hopefully others agree.


  2. Hi Belinda,

    I'd recommend to try setting your price about a buck below your traditionally published competition. That would imply value for your book while still offering buyers a discount over the competition.

    Just my two cents! All the best!

    1. I see your point. I'll admit I haven't really looked at the traditionally published prices of books in my genre. Off to do that now…!

  3. I'll be interested to hear how it goes. A gal I'm interviewing later in the week has her first ebook at $1, but then sells the rest in the series at $4.95 each.

    I have my two novels at $2.99 right now, but could see playing around when I have more out and more reviews and such.

    1. Yeah I had both my novels at $2.99 and my short story at $0.99 but the only one that's selling is Haunting Miss Trentwood and I'm pretty sure that's because it has reviews and I've been talking about it all over the internet. I'll definitely post updates a month or two into the pricing change.
