Holy Increase Batman!

A brief one this time, following up a little on the previous post about setting prices on Amazon.

A few months ago I decided to make my short story free using a promotion. I took it to zero cost.

Here’s what happened:

  • In one year, at $0.99, I have sold 18 units.
  • In four days, at $0.00, I have “sold” 71 units.

That’s a nearly 36000% increase!

Moral of the story (prepare for the most obvious statement you’ll read all day): people like free stuff.
