2 questions for shareware authors

<< < (2/2)

What do you get out of it that makes it worth it?  I have also looked into a membership but just can't justify the cost..

You get a lot of reliable information from other shareware authors, there are discussions about software protections, how to limit a trial version or experiences with promotions, just to list a few. I got lots of useful ideas and information from that organization...

Another organization is AISIP -
I'm not a member yet, but I'm sure that I will join sooner or later this year. It's a smaller community than the ASP, and I think most AISIP members (a list is on their page) are also member of the ASP. It's cheaper, and on their page you can also find a list of typical postings which are similar to postings in the ASP newsgroups, but what I have heard is that there is not such high traffic.

I'm in the same boat as you and manually submit applications using the PAD files.  I have compiled and maintain a list where my applications are - this list tells me if they support PAD submissions and if they require an account to submit software.

Here are some other lists (if you want to take the time to submit your products manually ;) ): (=list of pages supported by PromoSoft which I use for submissions)
