How to encourage self-seeding Echinacea?

I've put in about 30 echinacea in beds around the property with the expectation that they'll self-seed and eventually fill the bed and compete with other perennials (liatris, achillea). Is there a way to assure this will happen --- should I avoid deadheading the plants, should I NOT apply Preen to the beds, should I dry the seed pods myself? Any other advice would be welcome.
