Your marketing team has completed your research and you are satisfied with your latest products. It's time to plan your product marketing strategy. The success of your product depends on it.

The Market Research Association points out that only 40% of development products can move to the market. From there, only 60% of products will make a profit.

To ensure that your new product launch is successful you need a carefully planned marketing strategy and need some assistance from startup directories.

Technology is the key to success in a changing consumer market. Consumers have new contact points every day to evaluate your products, including advertising, websites, email, phone apps, referral reviews, customer service, and trade publications.

A common way to market your startup is to submit it to startup directories and review sites.

A Word of Caution About Startup Directories

But first, a word of caution about promoting your startup or product in these directories. I did a lot of research on startup directories, I saw many misleading and downright false claims about these startup directories online.

There are a few startup directories which are considered  spammy. Google considers these  startup directories as bad and submitting your startup to them will never add any value. If you are putting your website in these startup directories, it could decreases the trustworthiness and reputation of your site. It can also negatively affect your website's rankings. So it's important to keep this in mind before submission.

One way to avoid or define the spammy websites is by checking out the Domain Authority of a website (DA).
