Places to post your startup - with (some) metrics

This is a list of places that I have posted ChartBlocks in order to promote it. It’s a work in progress - I will probably add sites as I find them and once I’ve been able to evaluate how effective they were.

Bear in mind that tracking where users come from isn't as easy as it once was so these aren't exact figures. We use Google Analytics' utm_source where we can but that's not always possible. Some of the data is even manually collected - a sudden flurry of users after a particular event gets noted down. Figures are also not completely comparable - some figures are collected over months, others might be weeks.

All of that said, I hope you still find some useful ideas you might not have thought about yet.

AlternativeTo.net

Consistently sending quality traffic, though not huge volumes. You get to benefit from your competitors’ brands, as people will often by typing in ‘Alternative to [competitor name]’ and Google will be sending them to the alternativeto.net website...

startuplister.com

They manually submit your startup to high quality startup directories, review sites, and blogs to help you drive traffic, acquire customers, and grow your following. This has saved us a lot of time and is great value for money for the amount of work that would have been involved. This is ideal for early stage and established startups. I would highly reccommend them.
