Marketing or PR to appeal to business majors and chief technology officers. Maybe hiring a firm, maybe as a community wiki-like effort.
This is what I imagine a page for business majors would look like:
Fire your CMake build consultant!
Save costs on compilation farm!
You won't need that one dude who can do C++ templates!
Hire Java and C# developers and a senior C++ developer instead of all C++ developers, to save money, since C++ developers are expensive!
Invest in technology today. Dlang takes longer to start a project with, but your team will be more productive later on!
Test a version of your code every hour, instead of every day!

Walter Bright began a revolution in C++ compilers with the Zortech C++ compiler.
Andrei Alexandrescu did filler filler filler filler, sitting on the 8-person C++ committee at one point.
Where are they now? They work on Dlang, a modern language.
If there is a job listing with Dlang on it, it's probably a sign they care about technology and technical excellence, because Dlang is a minority language.
Basically, I imagine a big page with arguments for us and our language. noble and
