Do Amazon #1 campaigns really work?

You know what I’m talking about: You get an email from a friend saying they are trying to push their book to the #1 position on the Amazon best seller list for one day. They offer your a ton of free digital products if you buy the book on that day.

I’ve seen many people actually fool, trick, manipulate and otherwise coerce Amazon into landing the book on the top position, or even as high as 2 and 3. Amazon can definitely be maneuvered!

But does this lead to any long-term success for the author?

I’m interested in knowing your stories to see if you’ve done this and what the long-term results were. Did you get long-term sales? A distribution deal? A foreign offer. Or just lots of sales in one day?

Please post your response to the blog. Since there are so many people trying to do this, or thinking of doing this, I’d like to offer a public service to see if it is worth it.

Good luck!
