100 Sold Copies

After 6 weeks since the prelaunch of REBASE, I've now sold 100 copies of the ebook! This is a very important milestone for me as I didn't expect so many people to buy it before the actual release. 🙏

One thing I've noticed is that many people who buy the book are following me on twitter and know me from the JavaScript community. A lot of them say they bought the book because the like my teaching style from talks and tech articles I've given and created in the past.

I guess this underlines that it's important to build an audience first.

Here are some stats for this exciting milestone:

Gross Revenue: $1600+
Total rebase-book.com page views: 1750+
Conversation rate (rebase-book.com): 7.5 %
Conversation rate (overall): 6.16 %

Chapters written: 6 out of 9 (yes, I've added one more)

Here's what I've done last week:

  • Fine-tuned chapter 5
  • Continued with chapter 7, about 50% finished
  • Wrote one additional chapter (now chapter 6) about git reset
  • Updated the landing page chapter breakdown

    That's great, congratulations. Did your audience base come only from twitter and the JavaScript community?

      Thank you!

      Primarily yes. This is most likely due to my activity in the JavaScript/Angular community over the past years. Also, I still see that a lot of my page visitors are coming straight from Twitter. So it's a very important channel for me.

      There's also a lot of people coming to the landing page through my company's blog (blog.thoughtram.io), which has Angular developers as main audience as well.

        Thanks! I will definitely check your blog.
