"If you build it, they will come..."
For/From an (Indie) software development perspective, does this sentiment even slightly hold true?

Assuming you have identified some need and have found a good/efficient way of providing a (software) solution that works well and is user friendly, how do you get people to:
0) Find it
1) Try/Evaluate it (for free)
2) Get sufficiently engaged in it (i.e. post on message boards / forum / read documentation)
3) Buy or license it

Straw Poll

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
