This is great! 🎉
I've found that #2 is the hardest step. How do you promote the project without being spammy?
Yes, some of the steps of the section #2 like "Create a video" or "Present your project at conferences/meetups" implies some work, however they are not required.
Concerning spam, just avoid to publish twice one the same platform, or tweet every minute to do your project promotion ;)
