Smashwords and Permafree – new territory

Sales have been dire these last few weeks so after reading an article about an author’s success I decided I’d give myself a shake and do something about it instead of wallowing in lethargy.

I googled ‘increase your sales’ and Permafree came up, which led on to Smashwords. I’ve seen them both before in other people’s posts and tweets but thought I couldn’t sell with them because I had exclusivity with Amazon. Well as I have several titles I decided I’d try a couple and see which sales platform was best.

I contacted Amazon first to be sure I wasn’t breaching any rules and was pleased that I could still sell the books with them but I had to unenroll from KDP Select as this was the exclusivity clause, so here goes, voyaging into the unchartered territory of Smashwords and possibly Permafree.

Will it bear fruit? I’ll have to wait and see. Has anyone else used them? Experiences please in either the blog comments or Facebook/Twitter. Also your sales techniques would be helpful. Many thanks.
