Chicken or the Egg
« on: September 19, 2012, 11:53:23 AM »
I have seen many people start new sites and have the chicken or the egg problem. I am one of those people. I've actually ran into this problem twice now.

You have a site that needs user submitted content, yet your site is new and no one knows about it. How do you solve this problem?

Does anyone have a solution for the problem?

I'll share my thoughts after a few chime in.

I feel like this was brought up in a past show.

I don't remember which one, or if it was exactly this. Basically it was start the site with your content then move to user generated.

That or I totally missed the mark...  ;)
