http://bookads.co I took a chance on this company. They were being promoted by a number of other online publishing co's. From what I can gather they were hit with a ton of sign ups and got bit behind. However I have been happy with the results so far. Might be hard to show this.





There are many campaigns that are not working, and they are probing into different profiles. Nice how Amazon only charges per click, and I have a limit of $10 per day. It seems to be picking up momentum, I will stay with it as long as it's profitable.

Hi, I want to know more about this campaign as it progresses. I like the idea of a daily budget. When you get time please go into this in more depth, areas like your concerns, what you like/ don't like, whether overall you have seen an uptick in sales/reviews etc.
I need to get more into marketing my work. Still learning it and yes, I am using that as my excuse not to get things done.

Sorry for my late reply. I arranged the campaigns that have sales. The service I'm using runs $49 a month. I have not done the math, except it seems to be chugging along (paying for itself and earning a little) so I will let it ride.
I recently received an email from the guys running these campaigns, and they have some super-duper plans to really rocket the sales, but at a much higher price (of course) If anyone is interested I could put you in touch.
At this point I need to make a new book cover and get a speaking video produced. Hope everyone has a good New Years.

So are we to look at the spend column (your costs) and compare to the Total Sales column? How much you made.

@jmolan Of course it helps that you have a really good book, too.

Yes, that is Amazon AMS (Amazon Marketing Service) cut or cost per click. Also subtract the $49 a month for the contractor who is running these campaigns

Tell them to keep doing what they are doing. You are way ahead.

@jmolan If you have spent $85.65 at $10/day and made $465 ... why not double or triple the daily spend and make 2x or 3x or more?

What's holding you back from throwing more money at the project if the cost to manage $49/month is the same?

A couple things, the $10 a day is the limit I would go. I am charged $.07 per click by AMS.I just ran the numbers and the top campaign would stop at 142 clicks per day. I see what you're saying, I could up the Budget and see if we get more response....duh?

Don't listen to me.

If something is working I tend to work it so hard it breaks.

I tell my clients, if what they do is working, keep doing it. They don't need me.

hahaha, Well I just shot an email asking why we not up the budget to $50 a line. If we get the clicks, we should get some sales...lets see...thanks Bill!

Hey I just inked a deal for 24 gigs on the cruise ship this summer.

@jmolan 24 gigs!!

"Attention passengers. Please make sure Jack Molan stays in the middle of the ship. Whenever he moves to the port or starboard, the ship begins to turn ... "

That's a lot of eating.

Lemme know when/if you are in SF for any length of time.

We can get together and tell lies to each other.
