So, you’ve built your product and perhaps run a beta. 
You haven’t any paying customers yet and standing out from the startup crowd is proving tricky. It seems like nobody cares.
Sometimes called ‘the struggle’, this is where the majority of startup founders get stuck and lose interest. They’ve barely started and it’s already tricky to find traffic and convert it into dollar signs.
To raise funding you need to show a growing user base and to do that you need to come up with a great marketing plan. Either that or be prepared to spend on advertising.
Buffer, Airbnb, StatusPage—heck—even Slack had to start somewhere. The path to gaining startup traction is usually different for each startup.
Below are some reads about how we and other startups found their user base. Hopefully they’re some ideas you can cherry-pick for your own momentum. ⚡️🛩
