I fell short again this week, but I’m still pleased with what I wrote. 8400 words, and I’m close to the end of another episode. After this one, only two more to go and I will have completed my first funnel. Hooray!
Funnels are talked about in Write. Publish. Repeat. Essentially, they’re a series of books. You offer the first one for free and collect several readers. You funnel them through to the end of the series and the ones that have stayed are hopefully your “true readers”.
Only a small percentage of readers who pick up the free one, go on to the end. Sometimes it depresses me, but every time I make a sale for a book later in the series, I’m really happy.
With this next series, I’m doing things a little differently. I’m going to release a short story for free with a link at the back to preorder the first in a new trilogy. I’ve never done preorders before, so I’m anxious to see if it helps sales.
I’ve really been enjoying the Free Form Fridays, but I thought I’d try and do my own post on Monday. Fingers crossed I actually get it posted
How did you do this week?
