5 blogs to follow if you’re a Start-Up

Running a startup is never an easy job. Every element of the organisation must be built from scratch, and you will need to develop skills and expertise in areas you never imagined you would require. Fortunately, startup founders don’t have to face this endeavour alone. Check out this list of 5 of our favourite startup blogs that can play an instrumental role in the growth of your business. Our own success at SalesSeek is proof of their merits!

1. Reddit Startups

Reddit is a rather different social media network that provides amazing business resources for those who take the time to utilise it properly.

The Startup sub-reddit has forums for entrepreneurs, where you can introduce your startup to the community. By contributing on discussions , you can gain invaluable insights from others’ experiences. It can be particularly useful for those startups in their early stages.

2. Growth Hackers

By joining this (free) community you can get your hands on the most sought-after growth-related content around.

You can also chat with people about your experiments and tests, what has, or hasn’t worked for you and everything in-between — anything to help to get your startup off the ground and running.

The guys behind GrowthHackers (namely Sean Ellis) have also created a ‘Growth Collaboration Software for Teams’ called Projects (https://projects.growthhackers.com/). We’ve been testing it out and, so far, love it. Go and give it a whirl!
