Another thing some friends of mine did was create invitation only group on Facebook where leaders in the industry can share ideas and get tips. By creating this and inviting key people to participate, you establish yourself as a resource.
One thing Mike Stelzner taught me is to become an active commenter on the sites where the people you wish to attract hang out. Make thoughtful comments on a regular basis (set aside time at least 2-3 times per/week to do this. People will start to look you up when they see what you’re saying.
One other way to attract people is to run contests. Do something fun that gets people to your page.
Finally, think about hosting a survey upon which you write a report that others will find valuable. Maybe it’s about top 10 spiritual retreat centers in the U.S. or whatever.
Just some thoughts…
