Hello everyone! I’m pleased to say I had a pretty good week – my eBooks actually got a few sales. “Your Work at Home Journey” and “Get Paid to Talk” each got 1 sale. Also “Your Work at Home Journey” is still ranking pretty high – it’s stayed in the top 1000 books for books about running home-based businesses for the past week.

Hello everyone! I’m pleased to say I made some more progress on my eBook research this week. I decided rather than trying to focus on finding information on certain companies, that I would do what I can to find information on those companies, whether it was looking for information online or looking up the companies’ Facebook pages and sending them messages through there. This strategy has actually worked well for me – one company that I sent a Facebook message to asking for more information responded with the information I was looking for.
As I expected, sales dropped off on my eBook after my Kindle Countdown promotion, but that’s okay, in another week I should be able to lower the price down to .99 cents.
This week I also was finally able to get Piwik installed. It definitely shows some very detailed information, including the IP addresses of the people that are visiting my site. I was actually able to figure out that it was logging my visits to my webpage – for example, when I would log in to make changes or work on blog posts. I did figure out how to not track my visits, though.
That’s it for this week. I’m heading out of town for Labor Day weekend, but will be publishing my first “group” interview post on this site next week, as well as another update on my eBook progress.
This week has been a slow week for eBook sales – I only sold one copy of my eBook, however I did make some more progress on my new eBook. I’ve now added information on 20 companies to my database. I have to do some more research on one company before I can add them to the database, I wasn’t able to find much information from my primary sources. This week I hope to add another 10 companies to my database. I also want to work on some ideas for promoting my first eBook. I hope everyone has a great week!
Last week was a very slow week for eBook sales. I only sold 2 eBooks, but I did get another 5-star review. This coming week, in addition to looking for ways to encourage more downloads, I also plan to start working on my next eBook. The next three eBooks I plan to do will be more “directory” types of books that I’ll list information about different companies that hire people to work from home in the different areas I talked about in my first book – phone jobs, transcription and freelance writing. I would like to write the books along the lines of “101 companies that hire for work at home phone jobs,” “101 companies that hire work from home freelance writers,” and “101 companies that hire work from home transcriptions.” I’ve actually started doing a little research and found over 100 companies that hire people for different types of work at home phone jobs, now I just need to do some research on those companies, and also decide how I want to structure the book.
Also, as you may have noticed, the site is a little barren right now – that’s because I’ve switched providers, and I forgot to back up my information from my previous provider. I will have this website back up and running the way it was with my new hosting company soon though!
