So you've read a tutorial, filled a need and have made the next big jQuery Plugin. That's great... but that was the easy part.

The hard part is getting people to come. You can just leave it sitting there on github, unnoticed, slowly dying. Or... you can hustle.

Hustling is everything. If you feel you're plugin is truly the next big thing, you have to hustle it. In this talk I'll provide you with the essential list of how to get your plugin out there, how to get it noticed, get it downloaded, and maybe, just maybe build revenue from it.

Topics covered: - Who are the stars in jQuery Community - Hustling everyone, turning strangers into raving fans - How to get to the point and be concise, people don't care for marketing gimmicks. - The great licensing debate. Permissive (MIT) vs Controlled (GPL). - Revenue options.
