It can be a challenge to promote a brand new business, particularly online. But now there is a new website which aims to make it that little bit easier to do so.
The website is called Plug Start Ups and it allows people to promote their latest businesses – typically websites. The plug is given for free and you can list your website on a page of its own. You can provide a summary of the service being offered, as well as commenting on the idea behind it. There are several other sections that should be filled in as well, although some people elected to leave them blank.
Obviously it gives you a link back to your home page, but since this is a chance to promote your new start up it is disappointing to see that a lot of people have elected to get the link up as quickly as possible. This has left lots of information out, which is probably why lots of people have given a negative vote to various websites.
This could be a good tool to use online, though it may too soon get bogged down with substandard submissions and spam. It is too early to tell at present. But if people take the time to fill out all the sections on Plug Start Ups when they submit their business, it could bring some rewards. It remains to be seen how successful the site will be as a whole.
