Why Box Sets Matter:
A box set is a collection of books packaged in a box (or single file) and sold as a single unit.
Gone are the pre-digital publishing days where such box sets were costly and difficult to distribute; paperbacks or hardbacks were literally bundled together in a cardboard box.
In today’s e-book world, creating “virtual box sets” is practically as fast, easy and cost-efficient as publishing your individual titles.
Given the additional income such box sets can generate, many top-earning e-book authors use them as a must-have tool in their marketing arsenal.
Get The Facts
Box sets come with countless variables: timing, number of books, title selection, price point, “package value,” discount level, to name a few.
No wonder there are as many opinions about what works for box sets as there are possibilities of creating them. The good news is, there are many excellent blog posts and forum discussions to give you some guidance.
What if you additionally had some statistical evidence of what tends to work best?
