You don't have to sell 1000 a day to be in top 100 for your category. The number varies depending on category for a start. I sell 20 a day plus maybe 5 borrows and my position fluctuates between just outside top 100 and up to about 80 something. I was #7 once :)

The category was space opera

If you are talking top100 overall, then maybe 1000s would be needed.

Clearly your iq isnt something to brag about and wow if you google exact details about a forum it will show up.(thats sarcasm) i am talking if google chad campbell author or something someone would actually search for. The point is no shit quality writing and volume will help sales. The point we are looking for things outisde common sense to help boost sales. I'd bet dollars to dimes amazon does not care. Their system is designed by hot sellers in mind but also to keep long term sellers high in the rankings

Still no response to the actual thread topic and the numbers we suggested as more likely to make an impact?

btw, goggling plain Chad Campbell brings up a famous athlete (I've already forgotten the sport) and a murderer.

I've managed to make it as high as number 1 in category with a grand total of 3 sales on one day. A great deal obviously depends on the size of the category.

If you feel like wasting money on vanity sales - go ahead, doesn't make any difference to me.

This seems to have gone off on several tangents.

Firstly, getting to the top 100 [b]in category[/b] can be done with as little as a sale or two. It all depends on the size of the category.

Getting to the top 100 [b]across the entire Amazon store[/b] will take somewhere in the region of 1000 sales a day.

Gifting multiple copies doesn't work because Amazon only counts so many sales of the same item from the same account.

Organising 20 people, let alone 200, to buy the book at the same time is likely going to be a venture doomed to failure. You are, however, welcome to try and let us know how it went :-)

Finally, if you google "Chad Campbell Amazon" as a straight expression, without any quote marks etc, just as someone might type it in, at the top of the second page is a link to your profile and post history on this forum. Just sayin'
