RE: Price Reduction Promotion

Why don't you keep the reduction for a bit longer, say, to the end of the year? Play a patient game. What you really need is to fill your 'People who bought also bought' with books in the same genre, and for that you need sustained sales to disinterested third parties. At the moment you mainly have other KUF authors on your 'People who bought..., which is nice but won't help sales.

The sales of my book, by no means great, have been higher this year than last without promotion. I don't know why, but I have a feeling that at least in part it's due to a 'People who bought also bought' inclusion with other books in the same genre. It took a long time to get there, but it may be paying off now, though the jury is still very much out.

Thanks Joo, Michael, Alex and Mads!
I think I'm going to have to make a few decisions about my long term pricing strategy and what I want to achieve.
