How do I gather followers for my proposal?
I have a site, but I don't know anyone on the site. In the first stage, I can't submit it until I have a community. This is reasonable, but how can I gather publicity and followers for my site?
One option I have thought of is posting question asking for followers. But these are not real questions, and it seems that would make it spam.
The name of my site is called Trade. It is for enthusiasts of commerce, trade, and merchandise. For example, the triangular trade, Columbian Exchange, modern trade.
