A few years ago I asked myself the following question: What would I hate for a competitor to do?

I think it's a helpful exercise for entrepreneurs to get a fresh perspective on the business they are building and prevent optimising for a local maximum ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hil... ).

As the founder of BetaList one of my fears was that someone would 1) create a list of startup directories that would become the go-to resource for startups, 2) grow their audience, 3) provide founders a paid service to have their startup submitted for them, 4) gain control over an ever-increasing influx of startup submissions, 5) start their own media publication, 6) outcompete my business, BetaList.

So I decided to build that potential competitor myself rather than have someone else do it.

That's what I planned anyway. Halfway through I realised that journalists much prefer direct contact with the founders, and there's not much value in submitting your startup in bulk. It's way more effective to find a few key publications and go for the personal approach.

Still left me with this big spreadsheet and nice domain name though, and there's tons of people asking me for these kind of lists. Especially startups that want to get featured on BetaList, but aren't eligible for one reason or another. We used to send them a Google Doc with a bunch of links, but now we can send Submit.co

That's all :)

Just saw @Marckohlbrugge tweeting about this and immediately saw the potential value of an online overview where to get press coverage for your startup. Marc has already proven his value for startups over and over again, for example with his other business Betali.st. Keep it up!

Nice list It would be nice to see some real "expected traffic range" also added, now that we can crowdsource it. 'Cos we all know those Twitter numbers doesn't mean anything For ex: I submitted on Betalist, couple of weeks back, were on their trending list and got about 634 visits and 194 conversions in about 48 hours (~30% Conversion rate). Oh, and I... Show More
