Starter » take bite-sized action

I’ve got a simple question for you today: how many websites is your startup currently listed on? If the answer is less than 3, then do yourself a favour and get to work with the 7 top sites you can list on via 𝕏. Tip: get started with these from top to bottom. The desired outcome of this bite-sized action is to build backlinks that generally benefit your startup in three ways:

  1. Improved Search Engine Rankings → Backlink building significantly improves your website's rankings on search engine results pages (SERPs). Search engines like Google view backlinks as indicators of your website's authority and relevance, which can lead to higher rankings for relevant search terms.

  2. Increased Website Traffic → Quality backlinks drive more traffic to your website. When other reputable websites link to your content, their visitors may click on the backlinks to explore your site, leading to a website visitor increase overall.

  3. Enhanced Brand Awareness → Backlink building from authoritative websites can help boost your startup's brand awareness online. By earning backlinks from popular sites with high traffic, you can reach a broader audience and attract new customers who may not have discovered your startup otherwise.

Backlink building is essential for your startup as it can ultimately help you stand out in the competitive digital landscape. The best part? It shouldn’t take you longer than 50 minutes to submit your startup to all of these websites. ↓

Side note: I am working on a database of sites that you can submit to depending on the stage of your startup. There are already 56 sites in there. If you would like early access or want to make sure certain sites are listed, simply reply to this email and I will get that sorted for you. :)
