These are the kind of statistics I love to see.
All organic, no trying to “game the Amazon Algorithm.”
Our current anthology, _THE WEALTH CODE_, exceeds all expectations…
and we just barely started.
It is released this coming Tuesday, but has been for sale on Amazon pre-order for a while.
Keep in mind, most published books (Amazon has over 6 million) fail to sell more than 200 copies in their lifetime.
But _The Wealth Code_ had sold over 287 before I even added a proper description.
It had a one-sentence description of learning the secrets of prosperity, and we ran zero ads (until yesterday).
But it was selling nonetheless.
There are many reasons, but here are a few:
* It is the third book in a series of similar books. * Being part of a series gives it some of the best marketing space on Amazon (at no cost). * The series is all anthologies, and anytime one author mentions his or her book, the entire series gets exposure.
I remember scrambling to make sales when I was first starting out, and wanting instant results.
And that can happen with the right marketing, but nothing beats hitting the pre-order publish button and making sales just because it is available out there.
That is part of a long-term organic process as an author.
Yesterday, I finally turned on three Bookbub Ads (only three) for _The Wealth Code_, and we hit Bestseller almost instantly because we already had natural organic momentum.
In fact, we have barely begun our standard launch marketing (that starts next week).
Even better, the fourth book in the series, _THE ENTREPRENEUR CODE_, has already sold 144 copies (and our authors haven’t even turned their chapters in yet).
Like _The Wealth Code_, it is on pre-order (to be released October 26th), with a three-sentence description, and no ads.
This is the beauty of building an organic author platform, and not chasing the algorithm (like many gurus will tell you to do).
Using a series really helps, and having more books to your name really helps.
That takes time, but is so worth it.
So, hang in there, the long haul is when it gets really fun.

P.S. We still have a few spots on The Entrepreneur Code, and it is guaranteed to be a bestseller on Amazon. If that is of interest, read more about the contribution and enrollment here:
