This is a follow up to the previous post, which covered the Number 1 Reason your e-books are not selling. Here we will discover the three most common causes of ‘exposed’ books not selling.
So, you’ve spread the word about your blog—and, by extension, your e-books. Your Google Analytics numbers are all up, people visit and comment on your site, and you’re getting thousands of impressions and a couple hundred clicks on your AMS ad campaign. Congratulations, the world knows about your e-books.
And yet, you’re still not selling bucket loads of books.
Now what gives?
God knows I am far from the leading expert in the field of e-book sales. But I am sufficiently experienced and self aware to confess that there are three main issues keeping my book sales from increasing to where they should be. Odds are that these same issues apply to many of my fellow struggling writers. (Remember, I am on this journey with you. When I learn something, I share it. I know less than some, more than others. There are plenty of experts who would share possibly wiser advice, but they have a tendency to make things terribly expensive. Here at buckelsbooks we offer the poor man’s perspective, with tips designed to help those who are struggling and cannot yet afford to employ the ‘other guys’ pricey advice.)
The Three Main Reasons Your E-Books are Still not Selling
- Your cover art is not quite up to snuff
- Your e-book lacks reviews
- Your descriptions (ad campaign, ad copy, book description) are kinda lame
