Hello Readers!

For those of you who launched or plan to launch your next startup, I’ve created a list of 50+ platforms you may use to promote your next project for free.

🚀 Free resources you may use to promote your next startup

Promote Your Next Startup

Free web-resources you may want to use to promote your next startup.

The main advertisement channel is of course people who are in love with your product Their sharing activities is the best advertisement. Thus, the main idea is to create the product that is useful, usable and attractive to the end users. And only after that it does make sense to spread the word about something you've done.

Spread the Word

Post News

Link About
reddit.com The front-page of the internet
news.ycombinator.com Hacker news
lobste.rs Lobsters
facebook.com Post news to your niche groups
twitter.com Of course
slashdot.org News for nerds
raddle.me News feed
designernews.co Designer news
datatau.net DataTau - Data Science Newsboard
devrant.com A fun community of developers
sidebar.io The five best design links, every weekday

Create a Product Page

Link About
producthunt.com The best new products in tech
angel.co Where the world meets startups
alternativeto.net Crowd-sourced

Of course, it is far from perfect and from being complete. In my opinion, there is only one perfect advertisement channel and it is people who are in love with your product. Their sharing activities is the best advertisement. But this list of platforms mentioned in the repository may be a good starting point for spreading the word about something you’ve done.

All links there are split by the following actions:

  • Post News
  • Create Product Page
  • Post an Article
  • Write for News Blog
  • Answer Questions
  • Write to Dev-Chats
  • Become Awesome
  • Register in Startup Directories

I also put short descriptions for each resource that might help you to pick the right platform for your marketing strategy.

I hope you find promote-your-next-startip repository useful.

Happy promotion!
