So, here are some websites, which will help you to promote your business or startup with a boom in the launch week by giving you a large amount of traffic.
Product Hunt surfaces the best new products, every day. It’s a place for product-loving enthusiasts to share and geek out about the latest mobile apps, websites, hardware projects and tech creations. This website can help you gain traffic to your website over the whole launch week. The audience of this website is highly technical and can be a good tester for your product. On an average Product Hunt can give you a traffic of 4000 in a day with a pretty cool signup rate of 6% if you are on the featured page. This is a nice place to promote.
Hacker News is a social news website focusing on computer science and entrepreneurship. It is run by Paul Graham‘s investment fund and startup incubator, Y Combinator. In general, the contents that can be submitted are defined as “anything that gratifies one’s intellectual curiosity”. The audience of this website is highly demanding and is very interested in knowing more about anything and everything. On an average Hacker News can give you a traffic of 3000 in 4–5 hours if you made it to the front page and are lucky enough to have some press release.
At NEXT you can find, share and discuss new products with the community of China but before that you will have to be the insider of the community. On an average next can give you a traffic of 2000 in a day. This can also benefit you by giving some good press release in China’s E-Magazines likeEgouz which can definitely help in adding fuel to the fire.
PS: Translate the website into English as it is in Chinese.
Reddit is an entertainment, social networking and news website where registered community members can submit contents, such as text posts or direct links, making it essentially an online bulletin board system. Don’t think of reddit as one giant community. It is made up of “sub” reddits, which in itself are separate communities. Every single post you see on this site belongs to its own community, with its own set of users, and with its own set of rules. Reddit hates spammers. But if it is used ethically and you somehow manage to make your submitted links visible on the the first page it can give you a million views in just few hours.
DEMO8 is entrepreneurial state’s new product platform for exchange and sharing of the new products. It is like the online version of the “Innovation China Demo China”. On an average this website can fetch you 1000–1500 views in 24 hours.
DataTau is HackerNews for Data Scientists. This platform lets users share links to various data science related resources, tutorials and projects. You can use this website to gain traffic if and only if you can relate your product to data science by any means. On an average this website can help you by adding 1500–2000 views in a day.
About a year ago Sitepoint started a daily newsletter, Versioning, for devs, designers and general web folk. The idea was to gather up all the important links floating around everywhere and put them into a single place — along with a bit of fun commentary. The Versioning is currently in beta version but with a large newsletter database and visitors. This can help you with a traffic of 1000 in 24 hours.
Apart from these, there are some more websites which helped me in booming the traffic to some extent. So you could even try your hands on them as well to promote your product.
