Want to see a reason to NOT use Sales Rank, or at least not very reliably???
The AtoZ Money Book from Armchair Millionaire
Sales Rank was: 8,049,065
I have about 50 of these at Amazon FBA and was using this as an example, to decide what to do with the upcoming Long-Term Storage issue, since this is a Long-Tail item.
So I posted on BookSellersFBA Support Group, Facebook & Twitter (since I have qty and it is affected by the Long-Term Storage issue).
Got an order from Janelle Elms (OSI Rockstars) from Facebook. Thanks Janelle!!
So, just one bought
On 7/25 Sales Rank: 216,683
7/26 SR: 366,127
7/27 SR: 512,615
Now, think about if you found one of these books, would you have bought on 7/24?
How about on 7/25 or 7/26??, even 7/27
Would that have been a smart buy, or “would you have thought so”??…
Hmmmm, ….. Just something to think about.
Sales Rank can be very very misleading, use it cautiously!! …..
