We are excited to see that our strategies have helped make the promotion a success but more importantly, got such a powerful teaching resource that is aligned with Common Core Standards into the hands of more people.
Livingston, NJ (PRWEB) May 20, 2013
Winner of the Amgen Award for Excellence in Science Teaching and active advocate of Common Core Standards, Dr. Daniel Barth is the author of ‘Maurice on the Moon,’ the first Kindle book of an educational, sci-fi adventure series geared towards young students. The second and third parts of the series, ‘The Doomed Colony of Mars and Crisis on the Far Side,’ respectively, are available on Kindle as well. The ebook is currently used as a Common Core resource and part of the curriculum in many schools throughout the country.
With the recent popularity of implementing Common Core Standards within schools, Dr. Barth and his publishing partner firm, Funderstanding, utilized Amazon’s KDP Select Program to increase the book’s visibility and availability.
The final numbers for the promotional event were as follows. There were 1,876 total downloads for ‘Maurice on the Moon,’ both within the United States as well as international countries. For a steady two days, the book ranked #1 in two categories: ‘Astronomy & Space’ and ‘Science, Nature & How It Works.’ In addition, throughout the 3 promotional days, the book’s bestselling rank for top free books improved by more than 12,000 positions.
Partner of Funderstanding, Paul Kondo recaps the promotional event for ‘Maurice on the Moon’:
“This is our third promotional event for Dr. Barth’s books. Each new time, we improved upon the preparatory stages leading up to the event as well as some of the strategies we employ during the promotion. We are excited to see that our strategies have helped make the promotion a success but more importantly, got such a powerful teaching resource that is aligned with Common Core Standards into the hands of more people.”
‘Maurice on the Moon’ is still available at no cost for Amazon Prime Members and $2.99 for all others.
Funderstanding is holding another promotional event for one of their authors from May 21 to May 23. It will be for Mr. Bob Sullo and his book, ‘The Inspiring Teacher.’
