Amazon Kindle Books Ranking

I get asked this question virtually everyday by authors who never self-published, therefore they have no idea how many books are selling each day until they receive their report months down the road. I'm by no means an expert, but after being an Indie Publisher for a couple of years, I've had books ranked all over the place and once in the Top 100 in the entire store. There's always lot's of variables that can change these numbers like time of year, but basically you can gauge your daily sales based on the following rankings for your kindle book. Paperbacks are totally different.


Ranking          Daily Sales
50,000                 3
30,000                 6
15,000                12
12,500                14
10,000                15
7,500                  25
5,000                  35
2,000                  75
1,000                200
500                 1500
101 to 400      2500
Top 100          3000 may get you in the #100
1                   25000
