New Submission Service!

The service idea is quite simple (and came from customers requests):

SpreadtheWorld is a database of 400+ places to promote your startup. But, it takes time to submit your project all over these websites.

So, I created an offer where I do it for you!
Here are the details of the submission service:

  • You fill a form with basic information about your startup (pitch, name, URL, …)
  • I curate a list of ~80 directories & communities based on your startup activity
  • I start posting your startup to all the places.
  • The process takes 1-week max. The price is $250
  • You can track the progress with real-time reporting.

    Hi Xavier. Is the income from this kind of saas stable? I mean, you're providing a one-time service, not a subscription that generates revenue for months. So you have to keep bringing in new visitors, so the income doesn't go down. Or am I wrong? Thanks!

    1. 1

      No, it's not stable, it's pretty much related to how much I spend energy on marketing/content.

      If I want something stable I would need to work on SEO I guess

    Great idea Xavier! I love it.

    I'll include this in an article I'm working on.

    Do you have credentials and roi for your service? Think it is interesting!

      It's pretty new, so I don't have any ROI for now. However, I do have some testimonials from happy customers, like the CEO of meetvolley.com.

      I'm working on a dedicated LP with it :)

    Ultimately you’ll want to automate. Since it’s a new service and I assume your process is still very fluid, one alternative option is to do it manually for as long as possible so you’re focused on value for paying customers and can be super nimble in your approach.

    I am interested in your service so will likely follow up another time. One concern without doing any more research on your service is knowing it’s not coming across as spammy on those platforms. How do you ensure or minimize it?

    1. 1

      That's the major drawback with automation, you can be spotted as spam. That's why I do everything manually. That way I can select what to post on each place

    You need to think about automation and offer lower prices.
    With lower prices, you can get leads from fiverr.com

      I think about it yes!

      What do you mean by leads from fiverr?
