Smashwords adds daily sales reports and charts

Smashwords has added daily sales reporting and interactive charting for sales at iBooks, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, OverDrive and the Smashwords store, including daily and total order accumulation numbers for pre-orders at iBooks.

Aggregated performance over the prior seven-day or 30-day period can be viewed with drill-down views by retailer, title or series. There are also one-click filters to view priced books, free books, all books and accumulated pre-orders (iBooks only).Publishers and authors who manage multiple author names can view performance by a specific author.

Performance of multiple series can be compared across different retailers and the marketing effect of a blog tour, an advertisement, a price change, a new cover image, a new release in a series, etc can be measured.

Each chart is accompanied by a table showing how the recent 7-day or 30-day period compares to the previous 7-day or 30-day period.

Reports are updated every three hours for Barnes & Noble; next-day daily for iBooks and Kobo and same-day daily every 30 minutes for the Smashwords store. Sales data can be downloaded as a spreadsheet.

The new charts in the Smashwords Dashboard through the Daily Sales link.

Smashwords is continuing to add more retailers to the daily charts as data is made available to us and options will be added for longer analysis periods such as 60 days and 90 days.
