How To Get My Startup Reviewed On StartupTunes Quickly

StartupTunes is an excellent startup review blog which writes on quality web startups. Getting your startup reviewed on StartupTunes will definitely add values to your startup in the long run. Please read our other post Get Quality Backlinks Free Submitting Your Startup To StartupTunes to get a detail overview on how StartupTunes can help you to improve SEO for your Startups.

In this article, I am going to share some hidden tips on how to quickly get your startup reviewed on StartupTunes. Please read the steps given below and do accordingly.

Step 1: Does your startup worth a review?

Before submitting your startup for a review first be sure that your startup worths the review. This is a difficult question to answer but if your website meets the following criteria then you can expect a review:

  • First, your startup should be complete with at least public beta version. Alpha version or Invite only software should not apply for a public review.
  • Make sure your startup has a nice user interface
  • Make sure your startup is well designed in terms of architecture and user experience
  • Your startup should cover a large user base spanning geographic locations, startups developed for a small city have less chance for a review.
  • Your startup should be based on good idea for serving common interests or needs.
  • Finally, make sure your startup doesn’t have flaws in basic operations

If all these criteria is satisfied, then proceed to the next step.

Step 2: Write an unique review for your startup

Now, prepare an excellent piece of review for your startup mentioning all important features and aspects of your startup and its business model. Remember you know your startup better than anyone else so focus on your strength and add the right vocabulary you want to see on the review and make it more SEO friendly. If you website is reviewable, it is easy for the reviewer to publish your pre-completed review with little or no modification which will save their time and effort adding extra chance for your startup.

My suggestions is give enough time when writing your content and make it one of the best review for your website. Don’t worry if it take a day or two or even a week to write the review, you can use it later on other blogs if it’s not get published on StartupTunes. And don’t try to provide false information, write what is true about your startup.

Make sure that your review is totally unique. Plagiarism is always prohibited and if published your plagiarized review will get punishment form search engine. Even partial plagiarism is easily detectable using modern web tools, so never try to plagiarize. Moreover, you want to add values to your website, so avoid any sort of plagiarism.

Once your review is ready with unique content, then proceed to the next step.

Step 3: Submit Your Startup

Now, go to the new startup submission page at http://startuptunes.com/submit-new-startup/ and fill-up the form with the necessary information. In the description field, copy and paste the review that you have written for your startup in the previous step. At the bottom please mention that you have written this unique review by yourself for StartupTunes only and you would appreciate if they publish the complete review and also add that you would be happy to answer any further query.

Step 4: Wait and see

You are successfully done with the review process, now wait to see your website on StartupTunes. I hope you will see it within 2 weeks but it might takes up to 4 weeks to get published, so don’t panic. Once your startup is published, share the article with your friends and community and add the links at your “get reviewed” or “press” section of your startup website to let visitors know that you have got reviewed on StartupTunes. Select a suitable badge from available Badges for your visitors. Remember it is a part of confidence building for your website’s visitors so it should get more priority.

These are my own tips and I believe this process is the best way to get your startup reviewed at any startup review blog. I hope this will work for your startups and let us know your feedback.
