As soon as you self-publish, you're running a small business. (At least most of us are.) Which means you need to start thinking about things like advertising costs and whether or not you're making a profit from your efforts. That's where Excel comes in handy. Using the analysis tools it provides, you can leverage Excel to take your self-publishing efforts to the next level.
This guide will walk you through how to do that. It assumes you know the basics of using Excel already and walks you through how to apply Excel to scenarios that matter to self-publishers, including how to use the reports Amazon provides as well as create your own to track things like advertising performance, sales trends, and the titles you've published.
So if you want to learn how to calculate things like average customer value for a series or how to adjust your AMS reports to account for KU borrows and series sellthrough, this is the guide for you.
