Yes I know, I’ve already priced my ebook and sold 6 copies on ListingDock but I am starting to second guess my price.
I did discuss the price with a few online marketers that I really respect but now I am starting to think that I got it all wrong.
The thing is that my number one goal for my addiction niche, that I wrote this ebook for, is NOT actually to make money. My number one goal is to try and save lives.
Yes if I can make some money at the same time then that is of course quite nice.
If I drop my price I will probably make more sales. I would much rather sell 3 ebooks at $5 each than sell 1 ebook at $15. This means that more people are reading my story and perhaps more people will understand addiction better.
If I can sell three times the amount of ebooks it means I have a better chance of reaching my most important goal.
The next reason I am second guessing my ebook price is that I am wanting to list it on other marketplaces and to do this I need to drop my price to be in line with the pricing on those websites. I have added my ebook to Smashwords and they only allow pricing from $0.99 to $9.99 per ebook and all the ebooks for the higher values are much longer ebooks.
If I price my ebook there at $9.99 I believe I will be out of the game, so instead I priced it at $3.99 so it fits in with their pricing.
Now if someone buys the ebook there and then sees it listed at ListingDock for $15 I am sure they will be peeved.
Then I wonder what will happen if I drop the price on ListingDock and the people that have already bought it for $15 see it listed for less than a third of the price?
Maybe I worry too much about these things?
Do you have any suggestions on how to price my ebook?
