How do I evangelize iOS and Android components?

We develop UI components for Android and iOS. Our first component is a DataGrid/DataTable/Spreadsheet type component. Neither iOS nor Android ship with one, and many apps require a tabular display. 

I am just wondering if folks here have any ideas or experience with marketing UI component libraries (Not apps, but components to build apps)?

Here are our components: http://www.ioscomponents.com/  (iOS) and http://www.androidjetpack.com/ (Android).

Selling widgets like this is very hard on any platform. There are a couple of decent sized developer sites out there where you could write an article (I assume they are always desperate for content) but  I think you will find the number of people willing to pay a couple hundred (I know they will save a zillion hours by using your tool) is very small.
