or 200+ resources for startups
Hi Startupper, previously we wrote about idea relaunching. But you probably want to get some insights from us. So, feel free to use a list of startup resources:
You can find different pricing, management models, and people you trust. But, what to do next? For sure, you would hear that you need a lot of effort in marketing, use SMM, and Ads. But this works only if you have a detailed strategy and enough effort. Also, a good option would be to purchase feedbacks if you have an iOS MVP app launched (or Android APP). Both of these are important.
Nevertheless, there are plenty of free directories that can help you with growing. Some of them are free, some of them ask for a commission, some require particular tactics. We would highly suggest them even if you don’t have a mobile app ready yet. Even if you have just design ready, it would be awesome sources to generate traffic to your website and get early bird subscribers. This would give you a possibility to run a test and find the answers on: “Are users ready to pay for my idea?“, “Are they interested in it?”, “Who are my users?”, etc. So, feel free to use our Resources for Startup.
