Startup Directories You Should Be Using To Promote Your Startup

promote your startup via startup directories

Congratulations, if you are here and trying to promote your startup as it means that you started something. The thing is promoting your startup is hard. There are many free and paid ways to promote your startup. You can start paying for Facebook Ads or Google Adwords. Alternatively, you can try other methods, I highly suggest you to start blogging for your startup as well. However, today, we are not going to talk about blogging or content marketing but rather promoting your startup via startup directories.

There are also many startup directories to promote your startup but you need to be a little picky so that you don't spend too much time trying to submit your startups to fruitless startup directories. Apart from that, I would like to list the startup directories you probably don't know but you should be using to promote your startup. What I mean by that, you already know, you should try Product Hunt, Hacker News or Betalist, our purpose here is to introduce you other startup directory alternatives.
