Looks like you could use a hand.
You are gonna need to start pumping out planes for yourself and doing little things to them to adjust and make them fly just right. There is a huge production involved with getting one just right.
And if you want to sell kits, you need to provide videos of your airplanes performing things that wow people. Doing things that 99% of the pilots can't do with any of their stuff. In other words you should video a professional flying your airplane, if you go to the HEF this year there is usually a lot of really good pilots there.
Also, your dark and not so detailed pictures will not cut it for me as the consumer. I see a drab looking airplane and drab background, I subconciously label it as boring and move on. I am not being mean, just providing helpful advice.
I do a lot of designing when I build my stuff, I also have tried to post plans on rcgroups and videos (all of which get little to no attention). Anyways, you are doing alright so far, but you are still new and you still have a lot to learn about building these foam planes. I think you should relax and a get a good flying model of your Genesis and focus on just sharpening that airplane as well as you piloting skills. Then move on and start another project. You seem to be moving kinda fast.
That's just my two cents.

Vids are a great way to advertise! Ya, sorry if I was a little harsh. I always end up sounding that way... But I get my opinion across one way or another!

TAS foamies is an example of exactly what to do, just went to their website, it is very stood out and clear the kinda work involved in making very well advertised and very appealing products. Hmm, that Extra is pretty good looking... And traditional too!
Having a nice airbrushed scheme on a foamie also makes for a good advertising gig. Wish I could airbrush like some of those guys!
