After reviewing the data, here are the three key tactics that helped me sell $17,272 and counting of Writing for Software Developers since May 12th.
I posted "Show HN: Writing for Software Developers" at exactly 8 AM Central time. I immediately left a long comment including an excerpt from the book talking about HN.
My book includes interviews with 11 people. Many of them posted on Twitter about the launch, either by retweeting my tweet or writing their own threads about the project.
Over the past couple of years, I have built up a small network within the software development and technical content world. I sent dozens of personalized emails and messages telling people that the book was available.
I'm working on a more extensive writeup for my blog. Until then, if you haven't already, check out https://philipkiely.com/wfsd. I'll also be posting a video walkthrough of my analytics soon on my twitter account https://twitter.com/philip_kiely.
Bonus: three things that didn't work.
