I don’t really like the definition, that Wikipedia gives to a word “startup” so I’d rather describe it in my own words as “a brand new online property (website) that has something to offer to the people of Internet”. From my perspective, if you’ve just launched a website that sells ice-cream to the people of your town – that’s a startup.
These days it’s incredibly easy to launch your own startup: people with no skills just grab some easy tools like Site2You website builder to build a website around their unique idea; while experienced webmasters may launch something more sophisticated with all those pre-built scripts and ready-made platforms.
But once your startup is online, what is the next step? How do all those startups manage to attract the attention of the major tech blogs? Is there a chance for you to get your startup featured at TechCrunch?
In fact, there’s a list of places where you can submit your startup for coverage and even get some early feedback from the professionals.
However those three are only the top of the iceberg, as there are a lot more places where you can submit your startup to. Let me share a couple URLs from the list of my bookmarks. They should give you a good start.
- Quora: What are some blogs a new startup should send press releases to?
- Traindom: 36 places where you can submit your startup for some coverage
- Hacker News: Where to submit your startup for some coverage
