After building your product, the next step is to let everyone know your startup is open for business. But how do you go about validating your product? To help you with that, we have compiled a list of 5 startup directories where you can submit your startup for free. By submitting your startup website to these directories, you can easily gain visibility and attract early traction.
#1- Remote Tools
Remote Tools is an extensive repository of remote-first products. This includes a little self-promotion, but ever since we launched a couple of years ago, we have become the fastest-growing remote community. More than 25K monthly users explore the best tools for working remotely. Also, we share tons of remote working resources, guides, and original content. Almost 4,000 subscribers receive the Remote Weekly Newsletter featuring the top five most-upvoted remote products. Lastly, you can also network and engage with hundreds of remote workers on the Remote Clan community.
#2 Product Hunt
Product Hunt is a product listing website where founders, marketers, developers, and tech enthusiasts come together to discover the next great product. Products having the most number of upvotes rise to the top of each day's list. Finally, the Product Hunt newsletter features the top ten most upvoted products in their daily newsletter.
BetaList is a startup directory where you can share your product and get feedback from early users. BetaList focuses primarily on startups that are in beta or are about to launch. For instance, did you know that most well-known products today were first launched on BetaList to get initial users?
BetaPage is a product listing website and a community of like-minded, startup enthusiasts who love to explore the latest innovative startups. In addition to beta products, live products can also be submitted to BetaPage. Moreover, they also feature trending startups in their newsletter having over 30k subscribers.
SaaSHub is a growing startup directory to promote your product's online presence. Like other platforms, SaaSHub has an upvoting system where audiences can engage with your product and also find alternatives.
NitDit is a SaaS product discovery platform where you can find the top SaaS startups from various categories. If you are starting an online business, you can use NiDit to find various software to perform different activities for your business.
In conclusion, submitting your startup website to directories can result in thousands of views and increased visibility. Plus, you'll also benefit from an additional boost to your search engine ranking. Posting your product on these platforms is also a great way to validate the product/market fit without spending on marketing. Last but not least, not only is it important to build a quality product but also to effectively distribute it.
Pro-Tip: Market new products to existing users. Newsletters are a great way of doing that. Check out more about platforms like Revue and SubStack that can help you with this here..
