I have been experimenting with tutorials on FileSonic. I have earner $0.04 so far in total with all tutorials I made. I need some suggestion how to increase this.
I have been thinking to make a short demo in youtube and post the full tutorial for download in FileSonic.
Please help me so I can make some more cents :)

Cheers
Natt

This may not really have anything to do with your tutorials but you can try Google Adsense, basically, you can earn some dollars by posting their ads on your website or something and if people click those ads, you get some mowney!

Gamers/game creators are probably not the clicking on an ad type :).
And it wouldn't look cool if I created a website with those ads.
Also you need a really big site with lots of content if you want to go for adsense.
Also video tutorials isn't search engine friendly.
I have to ad a lot of text. I hate writing :)

The first three rules for sales are location, location, location.
With that logic in mind the next three rules would be product, product, product.

Right now your selling igloos to Eskimos.
Yeah there might be a market, but sales are going to cold regardless.

You mean the game creator community is pretty limited or the number of people using construct are limited or something else?

i think he might be saying that there are ten billion free tutorials for anything on the web as far as game development goes. if I had the free time, I think I could go from where I am now as a c++ programmer to being able to design parts of unreal engine 3, just based on free online tutorials

Well look at it this way trying to make money off of something they can get for free is a very contradictory idea.

I have noticed one thing. There aren't many free video tutorials compared to written articles. Maybe there is only a few like me that appreciate a video tutorial over a written tutorial/article.
What do you think? How many choose video over written text?

Ehh same thing, snow-cones VS igloos.
The subject is very niche, you'll be hard pressed to get the numbers to make it worth it.
Hence the Viagra spam across the net.

Ok as I understand you you're saying that because there is so much competition it will be hard for me to get noticed.
This would be very understandable if I where using search engine traffic.
But in my case I don't care about SE traffic much. I care more for people finding me through a couple of forums.
Also the forums have already found people interested in the niche.
