I'm trying to do a little research on how to market software -- I've written a couple of neat productivity desktop apps and I have also written several very useful ActiveX .dlls. (some written in VB and others written in C++).
Do developers really make much from their shareware products? Any suggestions on which service to do business with?
How about direct marketing? Anyone making money this way?
What about making a website, listing my products and trying to register with other links?
How about approaching a vendor that offers software (or software components) that would benefit by adding my goods to their portfollio of products?
I could really benefit from some honest feedback.
Thanks in advance!
