Promote Your App
SaaS Marketing Plan: App Directories / Lists
Some of these cost money, some are free, some have specific criteria, some are big, others are not… use your judgement. Where possible I linked directly to the “submit your App / startup” page.

My Awesome Disclaimer
There are only a few of these sites that I am really familiar with, and even then I’m just giving you the links, not vouching for them. Use them at your own risk and read their Terms of Service & Privacy policies really well (probably always a good idea).
There are a few links above that are affiliate links… meaning if you give them money for something – a listing, a book, etc. – I’ll get a cut. But all that means is that I am more confident in their abilities or the content of the book, program, etc. as I would never promote for a fee anything I don’t believe in. Still, you should do your homework and make your decisions based on your own due diligence. Cool?
Also, you should have an affiliate program so people will promote your stuff for you without you knowing! See my interview with Jack Born about Affiliate Marketing for SaaS & Web Apps for more info.
