Donate & Download Day is OVER!
Although the Pay-What-You-Want Day is over, the good news is that the products are still available and dirt cheap at the WanderLearn shop! For example, you can get all the digital products that you see on the right for just $5, if you buy the hardcover. Many people donated $10-25 for those products, so they're still a steal at the WanderLearn shop.
How did the Donate & Download Day go?
It surprised me how many people were checking their computers on Christmas Day! People donated anywhere from 1 cent to $25.
If you compare the value of products downloaded with the value of the donations, then people were, on average, giving me 15% of the value of the products. That's $6.73 for $45 worth in products.
That might depress someone who has worked hard to write a book, record an audiobook, make videos, and has no other source of income. However, as I said when I announced the Donate & Download Day, it's not about the dollars. It's about the pennies! Seriously, thanks to a few generous souls, I'm happy with the experiment!

Therefore, while a bunch of Harvard MBAs may say that letting people set their own price is a bad business move, what the hell do those idiots know anyway?
Will there be another Donate and Download Day?
Maybe, but it will probably be a 24-hour event, which will occur sometime in 2011. Therefore, to get the alert, go to the Contact page, and subscribe to my Newsletter, my RSS feed, and/or connect with me on Facebook / Twitter!
But why wait? Just pick up the digital products at the WanderLearn shop now for $5 when you buy the hardcover!
