But I can't see that happening any time soon because for the most part, I am unknown. No one has heard of me yet or is familiar with my articles and ebook. I feel that until I can become better known, I will be able to sell my stuff a lot easier, since all of it focuses on solving various problems.
A few years ago, I began posting on a website focusing on stress. This website was unique in that its forum included about five or six "basic" questions that anyone could feel comfortable in answering, such as "What did you do today?" A number of posters wrote short, but interesting stories. I also contributed a few over time. Consequently, the forum's owner became familiar with me and began posting on my writing-related forum. Turns out she happened to be a very competent webmaster and helped me rewrite part of my website.
My point is that it wasn't until I became known that I began receiving comments on my forum. The other posters who left comments on my forum were the result of a small ad in a writing-related newsletter.
I'm also sure that if I had ebooks to offer for free or for money, I would have earned a good income.
Become known. Just something to think about.
