“Social Media is a Cocktail Party” Makes Amazon Best Seller List
Thanks to all of you who made the launch party for Social Media is a Cocktail Party so successful. I really can’t thank you enough, so I wanted to give you an update on how we did with our little social media marketing experiment.
It was an amazingly fun day to watch the sales rank climb on Amazon.com and so many of you helped by re-tweeting the updates that we’re now ranked #51 among all marketing books. I’m really indebted.
So here’s what the results were:
- We sold several hundred books, peaking at #350 on the Amazon Sales Rank of all books. At 6:30 a.m. on launch day, we were at ranked #111,000. By 9 a.m, we hit #35,000. At 10:00 a.m. we hit #9,000 and so on, until we broke into the top thousand around 2:00 p.m. and hit #350 around 6:00 p.m.
- As of right now, the book is ranked #51 on Amazon.com’s Bestseller list of Marketing books (out of over 51,000 Marketing books listed).
- We’re also ranked #18 among social media marketing books, which is a decent start for a book that’s been out for 3 days.
- But perhaps most importantly, you helped raise hundreds and hundreds of dollars for Make-A-Wish during a tough economic time. That’s going to help a sick child’s Wish come true that much faster.
Most of all, we want to thank you. From friends we grew up with to our newer “social media friends” and blog readers, Lisa and I were really grateful to have the support of so many of you.
(Even if you made fun of me about our “Will it Blend” spoof where we tried to blend our book. Even if I deserved it.)
