Last year I updated and converted two of my e-books to sell them on the Kindle platform as an experiment. I was curious to see if they would be well-received in that arena, plus I had never published anything on Kindle and it made sense to give it a try. After all, the two books, “101 Rules of Tradeshow Marketing” and “The QR Code Tradeshow Marketing Guide” had hundreds of downloads over the span of a couple of years.
I wouldn’t say converting them to Kindle was a big success, but I wouldn’t say it was a flop, either. Each ebook has gotten a handful of downloads. It’s a crowded field in Kindle-land these days, with seemingly everyone wanting to publish books there, and Amazon.com more than happy to accommodate.
They got many fewer sales than when I offered them as free downloads on this blog in 2009/2010. I don’t actively market them at this point, so that’s probably one reason. Plus, of course, they’re not free anymore!
But I feel they’re good books, and very helpful for what they are intended.
