FIRST SALE!!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿป + Chapter 0.1.7 Released

Andrew @andrewpierno

Technically the sale came in this morning so will show for tomorrow's stats. I was just too pumped not to post it now.

I started posting the book on a new channel. It's a site I'd never heard of called Royal Road. https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/36232/010

The reader base is super engaged. I've racked up more views here than on almost any other platform so far (except for github)

Hunting for new channels is hard, and truthfully this insight came from a post I did on dev.to! I think it's important to put yourself out there to get feedback like where to post your stuff. This particular user ripped me a new one, but was also helpful. It was still a net benefit.

Stats for yesterday:

fb spend - $ 6.70
fb clicks - 23
reddit spend - $2.52
reddit clicks - 10
website views - 45
Github Views - 173
email signups - 0
sales - 0
