Ebook Pricing: The Floor’s Going Up

Kindle

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.
