Get some contributes

Yes it is hard to even get contributors to count ibute on your project mainly because they are not interested in your project! (but mainly because they are like you doing something else of course).
But to get contributors can sometimes pay a lettle more help(as you maybe working alone like me). So to solve this I came up with some good ideas.

Ask for a lettle help first

Remember how you solved an issue in your project? The same way create some good first issue labeled issues for newcomers to try out. If anyone would be interested in then try to provide as much information as you can.

Never make it hard

Your first ever contributor is not a member right? As he is new. Try to make simple issues with anyone can solve while you work on something else. Take an example like grammar check, any useless piece of code or if you are making a website then grammar check, broken links.

Keep it up

Make sure the contributor feels spacial as if he solved a huge problem for you(any way he did solve a big problem) and recommend him or her to others as will so he/she will continue helping ahead. I like calling this the way of user to maintainer road as it converts a user into a contributor then into a maintainer.

The quick help

You if help others then why won't others help you so try to find some projects on github on which you can help in return as them for help. Make sure that it's not a organisation as it's workers will not help for freeπŸ˜‚

end of this

That's all but let me tell you something not all of your tries are going to work as not everyone is intened to help at first b t latter then may.
You can do the same by contributing to me.
If you found this of any use then do leave a comment or have any other ideas do tell below
