Important info on KDP Select
« on: May 09, 2014, 06:04:25 AM »
For all my indie author pals:

Here's something those of you with books in Amazon's KDP Select program might find interesting/useful: It now takes about 600 free downloads to equal 1 paid sale. Again that's a 600:1 ratio of free to paid. (And that's with some paid advertisement after the books come off of being free.)

This data is pulled from a group that does a bunch of give away events. I haven't done one of these events in well over a year, but I still get their emails. I just received an email announcing that they are discontinuing the event because of this info. They're finding it just not worth it any more.

Sharing because I thought fellow self-published authors should have this information.
