One of the easiest ways to boost you sales on Leanpub is to opt your product in to being included in discount sales offered by Leanpub.
How to Opt In to Leanpub Discount Sales
You can add opt any book, bundle, or course into our sales on the pricing page for each book, bundle, or course.
You can find the pricing page for any Leanpub book here:
...making sure to replace YOUR_BOOK with your book's unique web address.
You can also get to this page in the main menu:
Author > Books > [Book Title] > Store > Pricing
For a bundle, the pricing page is here:
For a course, the pricing page is here:
... and you would navigate to the bundle and course pricing pages similarly to how you would get there for a book.
On the pricing page for your book, bundle, or course, you will see a box that says "MAXIMUM LEANPUB DISCOUNT %". Enter a number here, and click the blue "Update Pricing" button. Then, your book will be eligible to be included in a Leanpub sale.
Please note that a lot of books that have been opted in to the newsletter sales, and opting in is not a guarantee that your book will be included in any given sale, sorry about that.
Just to be really clear, while opting in to discount sales is a necessary step to be potentially included in our discount sales, we also cannot make any guarantees about if or when any particular book will be included in a sale, as there are many books that have opted in.
