If you’re writing and selling ebooks, you’re confused about pricing. Who isn’t? If the big publishers don’t know how to do it, we can’t either.
However, there’s a glimmer of light in the darkness, as this article, Amazon 47North – Pricing Analysis | J.A. Marlow reveals. Pricing analysis shows the the floor of Kindle ebook prices is going up, and recommends that you:
“Think long and hard over the $.99 and $2.99 price points unless it is a part of focused and well-planned promotion or marketing blitz. Notice Amazon still has a higher list price on the novels. There is a reason for that. They have a higher regular place and the deep discounts may not last long.”
I completely agree. There’s NO POINT, as I’ve said many times in the 99 cent price, and other low prices, unless you have a loss leader strategy — I discussed this here.
Don’t be afraid of charging decent prices. Low prices can hurt you.
