Free Tool: Amazon Book Sales Calculator

Speaking of sharing, check out what Nicholas Rossis shared yesterday. This is VERY cool, and can help you plan your marketing strategies. I had trouble at first (a firewall on my PC was blocking me), but it works perfectly on my iPhone. Head on over and give it a whirl.

Did you know you can estimate how many sales any eBook or print book on Amazon is currently selling just by looking at its listing on Amazon? Even better, you can see how many books you have to sell in order to reach a specific rank.

  1. I always enjoy these tools, but this one seems to be very inaccurate. Phoenix Sullivan has done extensive analysis of kindle sales ranks and her most recently updated chart on kboards has very different numbers from this calculator. For example, Phoenix lists 20 sales/borrows per day required to hit 7,500 and 17 per day to stay there. The calculator lists 32 daily sales/borrows for that rank — dramatically different! Every time I’ve checked my sales against Phoenix’s numbers, hers have been top notch, so be sure to take this calculator’s results with a grain of salt (especially since the creator doesn’t understand how borrows impact sales rank).
