I laughed with recognition when I read somewhere that free is the new ninety-nine cents. Now it seems free isn't the key to readers' locks, either.
Check out this post at Bert Blogging: Bert's fed up with free and even raising the prices on his books, too. I have friends who swore free worked but that free is now over since Amazon's algorithm changed. Read Bert Carson's interesting take on why free is silly at the link below. It's good data to consider as we all feel our way forward blindly, trying to figure out what the next marketing key will be.
