Where can I self-promote?

  • You should not just start submitting your links — it will be unwelcome and may be removed as spam, or your account will be banned as spam.
  • You should submit from a variety of sources (a general rule of thumb is that 10% or less of your posting and conversation should link to your own content), talk to people in the comments (and not just on your own links), and generally be a good member of the community.

A platform to link products to online discussions

I recently tried to do some marketing for my SaaS. I couldn’t help but reply to online forums when my product was a possible solution for a problem. I tried many times to slap my hands, my posts would be flagged as self-promotional.

It works by following up from other online discussions

When we reply with our product link on an online discussion, of course we want the OP (Original Poster) to find our product useful and use it. Nonetheless, what we are ultimately aiming is that people searching for the same problem online will end up finding our link as possible solution.

Hackergrows works as follows

Once you find a forum (or any other place on the Internet) where you would like to mention your product:

  1. Copy its URL
  2. Copy the URL of your product landing page
  3. (Eventually add an explanation why your product is the best fit for the link at point 1.)
  4. Submit
