I could find plenty of outdated lists of low-quality farm-links to submit your apps. I therefore decided to create a list of high-quality directories to submit your SaaS App / Startups.

Hope you'll find it useful!

    Great list @pierre-lechelle. Definitely going to check out some of these directories now.

    I've been looking for a list exactly like this for the past couple of weeks - thanks for putting this together @Pierre_Lechelle

      That was probably the shortest article I ever wrote. But definitely helpful. Most lists were featuring sketchy directories :)!

    So the first listing is GetApp, which I applied for back in March but requires a $1,000 or $3,000 commitment in order to get posted. Has anyone been able to have their App posted for free? Anyone have success with their paid tier?

      I've advised clients to get into a discussion with them in order to reduce the price. Unfortunately, they didn't discount anything.

      I've had a few others who were successful using the paid tier. I've seen some of them converting clicks at the rate of 20% (without any optimization).

      It's always a question of how much a lead / customer is worth to you. Let's get an example:

      - CPC is around $4
      - CR Visitors > Trial: 15%
      - CR Trial > Paid: 5%
      - CAC: $480

      If your LTV is $5k, you'll be fine. If your LTV is $600, you won't be profitable on these customers.

      Unfortunately, it's impossible to give you numbers specific to your industry. You'd have to try it out for yourself. I'm guessing you'll have huge variance between industries / products.

      Small tip: when you subscribe to GetApp, you get $1k / $3k of CPC credit. I'm guessing that you could add several listings (= several companies) and share the risk.

    A best collection of SaaS directories but many platforms taking long for approval. For e.g. readysaasgo. Its taking too long. I have submitted long time ago and still they have not approve event though my website is SaaS based.
