I think this is the actual problem though, not Wattpad. It’s that a lot of people on here are TEENS with no available income. Most teens, like myself, only buy physical books or trad published stuff on amazon that are more dependably a good read - or FREE Wattpad stuff. It’s more about the teen demographic in general than WP as a site. Plus, it’s not the only social media presence that’s mainly teens. The same can be said about instagram and plenty of people have gotten good results from that! It all depends on how big your following is
I’d say you’d have to be over 10K followers on WP to consider that you could even get a small chunk of them to cross over and pay. A lot of people don’t have that.
Like, I don’t mean to offend, but you have quite a bit less than 1K followers at the moment. With that low of a follower count, I would expect VERY few people to pick up your book if you published. The follower count has to be a lot higher than that for even 100 people to go off and buy your work, honestly.
But, again, that wasn’t even the question I had
