I previously asked How to engage with graduate students and academics in psychology and cognitive science?. One suggestion was to promote the site at an academic conference.
I've read that there is a potential budget for promotion.
We can come up with budgets and promotions but the means and ideas about how to reach your target audience HAS TO come from you and your community.
However, this still leaves the question of the most cost-effective way to do this. For example, having a stand is probably fairly expensive; getting swag in the conference bag may or may not be that effective; I'm not sure.
- If the site was to be promoted at an academic conference, what specific strategies might be cost effective?
- Are there any strategies that have been applied in the past by related sites?
