When you are building a Startup, marketing plays a very crucial role which helps you to find your true tribes, early adopters and customers that pays for your Product.

Bill Gross has founded a lot of start-ups and he found one factor that stands out from the others — and surprised even him.

To do so, you need to promote your product and market it to gain visibility. The best way to do so is to promote in all the available active Communities, Startup Directories, Reddit and submit it to Press, which can bring in initial traction, customer’s feedback, and may get a chance to gain early press coverage.

Currently, we have a lot of available options but only a few of them can maximize the return of your time. Therefore, we have consolidated the lists of directories and resources that you shouldn’t miss.

Ending Note

In a Startup, product building is one part of a bigger problem. The next is to find your niche. It’s always recommended to take the best leverage of all the available directories, and resources. You may find some are free as well. Nothing better than saving your bucks. Try to be a little cautious before using the paid resources because not everyone can deliver as per your expectation. Due diligence is always recommended.
