Developers understand that marketing is beneficial, but can be put off by marketing tactics that seem more focused on making a sale than with sharing something they need or value. But self-promotion doesn’t have to be self-centered, and marketing content can — and should — be relevant to what developers have created. Learn how developers successfully use marketing to spread the word about their projects, blogs, and more, often without trying to sell anything.
