In a meeting yesterday my team lead asked me about how I could better promote and market my educational content on Learn WordPress.
For someone who prides himself on always either having, or finding, and answer, I suddenly found myself stumped as to what to say.
I’ve never been a marketer or sales person. At my core I am a problem solver, so whether that’s solving a problem through code, or helping someone else solve a problem through educational content, once the problem is solved, I’ve never thought beyond how to get the solution in front of other eyeballs.
Now that I’m sponsored to create content for Learn WordPress it’s never occurred to me that I should be promoting my work. It’s certainly a new problem to solve, and so I’m putting some headspace into how to solve it, but I have no idea where even to start.
So, in the spirit of the learning, open source, and community, I’d like to ask you, dear reader, what tips, tricks and tools can you share with me as to how I can promote my work to a wider audience?
