The Kindle Daily Nation sponsorship for DEGENERATES yielded okay results. I was hoping for a few more sales than I actually made, but at least the exposure was good. It caused several dozen more hits on my blog than usual and I have now surpassed the 170,000 hit mark. That's a lot of hits, but even with that I didn't reach my total sales goals for the month. Though I did have enough that I'm pretty satisfied a momentum will build over time. I've also discovered that posting on meet our authors forum and KDP boards actually do get results. I stopped posting for a few days because of real-life work related issues and then started posting again the other day. I did see sales increase after posting. Keep in mind, I don't recommend self-promoting as a topic of discussion because you can get some pretty mean replies. But there are many topics set up for authors to self-promote without fear of repercussion. I blast out a different book each day and then monitor to see if the sales have increased more for that book. I also keep track of what sites to promote on and then alternate so I can see which sites get results. I have seen pretty good sales from this technique, almost as good as paying for sponsorship.
