I have a travel book of 300 pages and 600 photos ready for print and sales. For the last 4 months I have been posting a regular and substantial daily blog plus a periodic blogbook, in total receiving 5000 clicks mostly from USA, Australia and Europe. Very few from the UK.
1000 copies of the paperback version of the book could be ordered and received with 28 days, the ebook version is on the way - maybe another month, but neither worth progressing, without a better response from the internet. Either the book is no good, or the price is too high, or we have a fouled path through the internet. Maybe all three!
I need help!
The person best suited will have internet selling skills, experience in book publishing, and a vision on how to get this book to market in all of it's forms. I am open to a profit sharing arrangement.
A little more detail.
I think out failure has been in not having an adequate format from the start. By this I mean, we started the blog with a link to a website with a cart. That site had a price double the present price and no selling information to encourage an interested person to buy. We gradually added the information and refined the site (over months) and today it is probably close to what it should have been in November. Similarly when the first blog books were added to the blog the link on the blogbook was back to the blog and should have been to the site with the cart. It was only in the last couple of weeks that the cart has been added to the blog itself and even yesterday malfunctioned. In hindsight I think all of these things should have been in line so as to create a flow through from the first blog read to a "buy" from the cart.
As for the 5000 clicks, maybe this is inadequate as it equates back to only about 20 openings a day. The daily blog is on blogspot and the blogbooks on Issuu. Another three platforms carry the blogbook - Scribd, Docsoc and Slideshare. Only the latter is generating a few leads (ave 20per week). Not good. So google searches are not picking us up.
