    Who has had success with this? And what worked for you? I got this idea from Alex Becker, who always makes things seem a lot easier than they really are. He talks about creating 'epic bait' and then using social media and forums to market it, but I was wondering if there are other, better methods.

    Right now I use Facebook and Instagram to draw in people. I post my new blog articles to these pages along with my personal Facebook and LinkedIn usually.
