Progress of the Sales Drive, Day One

Dear humans,

My human meant to help me with this extensive, long post about how she’s managing her advertising for her sale run for the Magical Romantic Comedy (with a body count) Starter Pack.

She’s exhausted. The kind of exhausted where she can’t even anymore. She’s going to take her medication and go to bed.

But, here’s the important update: When she started the ads, most of them just worked. She did very little fiddling. She turned off all ads that were over $0.30 CPC and left everything alone.

Yeah. That’s it. That’s not good for creating a post about fine-tuning ads.

As of 9:55 pm, she’s gotten 560 sales out of her 5,000 sales goal on Amazon. She’s really, really happy with this.

So, tomorrow, even if she doesn’t have to do much ad adjustments, she’s going to help me present a guide for adjusting them. She wasn’t expecting the ads to work so well on the starting day, and when it comes to advertising, “don’t break what isn’t broken” is a good rule of thumb.

She’s spent $1,147.75 today, which is $2.04 per lead, which is a little higher than she wants. Tomorrow, she’ll adjust ads and start new ones to see how they work. (And she’ll share how she’s done the adjustments and why.)

But today, her ads did their job, and that’s a wonderful thing.

To those of you who has grabbed a copy, thank you so much.

Hi, Sneaky Kitty,
Please let your human know how much my hman enjoyed Hypnos! It was excellent, and sometime soon when my human is actually awake instead of sleepwalking, she will write a review on Amazon. She also grabbed the Mag Rom Com starter set, and is planning to enjoy that over the weekend.

Sincerely,
The Cat Management Team

I love your books. I have enjoyed them so much that I bought the starter pack for my mom and my sister. Don’t stop writing them, no matter how frustrating it gets. Those of us that can’t write need your creativity to get through the day.

I grabbed a copy when you mentioned it in your newsletter. I had some of that series, but not those novellas. I also just saw the bookbub add. 🙂
