As the title states, how do I monetize my 'celebrity'?
I use the term 'celebrity' loosely as I am aware it is only mild.
Here it is in a nutshell. I have appeared on the following:
1. National TV about 10 times (in Canada)
2. Local TV 8 times.
3. Local radio for 2 years as an ongoing contributor
4. Local newspapers on and off for a few years as a contributor
5. Host of my own community TV show that is seen in several major cities.
I created a video tutoring site with over 400 lessons and worksheets. This did not turn out as planned due to the explosion of FREE video lessons and worksheets all over the internet.
I currently have about 14 books and workbooks on Amazon. Again, there are tons of free stuff all over the internet. As a one man show, with limited time, I cannot compete with free.
So, I have a dilemma. I would like to have control over my own destiny and not rely on Amazon, AdSense or Clickbank for a paycheck.
My media experiences definitely give me an advantage over others in my field. The question is, how do I best monetize this advantage?
I'm looking forward to hearing some insightful responses.
