Going From 0 to 60 Sales a Day Without Using Amazon, in 60 Days! Can I do it?

I'm frustrated. Amazon is a cool site, don't get me wrong, but when it comes to selling books, there are some serious drawbacks and other platforms can help fix them.

  1. Low commission, the best you EVER get is 70%, and that's if it sells on Amazon, and it's priced right!
  2. No analytics, so you have no clue how well your offers are converting, no traffic numbers, equals flying blind. 
  3. No contact information, your buyers are really Amazon's buyers, unless you convert them to a mailing list. 
  4. Changes are complicated, discounts are limited, and giveaways are extremely controlled. 
So, I am launching a new challenge. I want to take my books and sell 60 copies a day on a platform other than Amazon. The first thing I'm going to do is choose a platform. I've narrowed it down to two choices, and I'd love your opinion!

  1., instant commissions, earn 90% on every sale, super simple uploading and changes, price changes, give aways, coupons, affiliates and more. 
  2. commissions paid weekly, more advanced interface, with product selections based on keywords, and a market place where they share your content with shoppers. 
So, which one would you choose, and why? Leave me a comment, today is Tuesday, by Monday I need to decide which one I'm going to use, so add your comment and find me on Facebook to talk more about it.

For more details of the challenge, my rules, what part you can play, and more, check out my latest post on Indie Pub Academy.
