Book Promo Sites: How long do they work?

Panzer was tootling around in the Catosphere when he heard some strange hemming and hawing noises. Following them took our kitty traveler to the Indies Unlimited blog.

With just a little digging Panzer found a post by Melinda Clayton which  was the source of all the noise. Ms. Clayton's post is about the state of ebook promotion sites. Her post contains information on two things important to indie authors. The first is that there seems to be a smaller return in sales from ebook promotion sites than there was just a year or two ago. The second is that promotion sites are merging. This is evidenced by the recent merging/partnering of BookSends and eReaderIQ followed by the merging/partnering of Pixel Ink and BookSends. This spate of merging suggests that there may no longer be enough members/readers to support as many promotion sites as in the past.
This doesn't look good.

Panzer says, "Maybe it's the ebook subscription services with the all you can read for one fee that's taking the members/readers away."

Note: This is a medium-size post. You'll need a cup of tea for your reading today.
