My open-source project Github profile README generator reached 1000+ ⭐️ in less than 45 days 🥳.
I was scrolling the twitter feed and listening to Blinding Lights when I got the idea of this tool. Never thought that so many developers will find it useful.
The open-source community is amazing. The project on GitHub received two pull requests without even opening an issue.
- Nat Friedman CEO of GitHub followed me on twitter.
- Thorsten Lünborg, a member of the Vuejs core team even starred the repository🙇.
Now the question is How I did it. The strategy I followed is a mix of a few steps which are as follows
I am quite active on dev.to and understands the power of it. So I wrote this article for the same
Guess what, it got 1400+ views. Organic reach is pretty amazing on dev.to.
You blog post must display the capabilities and uniqueness about the project.
I am quite active on LinkedIn too. So I took advantage of this and wrote a post regarding the tool. Organic reach of LinkedIn is amazing too and the post was reaching 1000+ people per hour for the first 12 hours. The post became a hit and reached 24000+ people on LinkedIn.
That's it! Dev.to and LinkedIn proved out to be a super awesome platform to reach the targetted audience organically.
