QuestionHow to get the word out? Pin

Primarily my business is consulting, but lately I've developed an application that allows people to create their own HMI's (Human-Machine Interface). I really don't have a problem marketing that product since my customers are taking care of that for me...

The question I have however, is that in the course of creating this product there are a couple of libraries that would be really useful to other developers. I've put in a lot of time into these libraries so I don't want to give them away, but I'm planning on making them cheap enough for casual developers to get. I really don't have the means to join an affiliate or advertising network, or anybody to develop the advertisements. There are a couple communities like CP, but as far as I can tell, CP has the biggest online community for developers. CP also does not allow me to make an article about how to use the library, so I really can't do that.

How would you suggest a cost-effective way of getting the word out about these libraries? If CP had an article section that I had to pay to post an article in I would jump on that in a minute, but it doesn't exist. CP has a section for sponsor articles, but I can't see any way to become a sponsor. I'm also not sure if it would be "kosher" to post in the forum about the product and offer it free to a few developers with the stipulation that if they liked it to write a review. I've been developing for 20 years, but this is the first foray into marketing my creations, any advice is appreciated!
