This week, Predictable Revenue was the #1 sales &/or marketing ebook on all of Amazon.com! (And spiked to be the 17th top overall business book, above titles like Blink, Getting Things Done, The 4 Hour Workweek, Seth Godin, and other classics) –
Amazon.com rankings change hourly, but regardless of where the ranking goes next, it was pretty neat to see this happen after so many years of baby steps.
Especially since in both writing and marketing the book, for years Iv’e been sticking to my 20-25 hours a week schedule. (In fact, I put the book in a weekend – though that’s a whole ‘nother story.)
And instead of spending any money on marketing (except giving books away), I’ve stuck to word-of-mouth and partnership marketing.
In fact, if you want to see some of the simple ideas I credit my book’s success to, see the “Simple, Sane & Successful Inbound Marketing” slides from my recent Hubspot talk.
Thanks to all of you who have been customers! And especially those of you who’ve left reviews on Amazon (and especially especially those who left 5 star reviews :)).
