Marketing for developers

"If you build it, they will come," they say. Not so! Marketing is crucial for anything you build that you want people to find and use. How should you market your app, or your open-source project, or your mobile app, or anything else you build — especially as a time-strapped developer? This proposal will go over marketing tips and recommendations to make sure what you build is seen and used.
