Notwithstanding regulatory limitations, more and more startups across the world are going the ICO (Initial Coin Offering) route for funding their ventures and rightly so, because it is much more hassle free as compared to raising money from VCs.

Through the ICO route, a venture has an option to tap global retail investor base from Day 1 of its existence. Imagine Facebook raising money from global investor pool right when it started.

A safety net is ensured for ICO investors as well. If the startup fails to raise above its softcap limit, all the money raised goes back to the investors.

However, even if access to retail investor base is ensured via the power of internet, it is much more difficult to actually raise money. This is where effective execution of marketing strategy becomes important, more so, with growing competition among companies choosing ICO route.

A major time and resource of marketing efforts of your team should go into getting featured on important ICO listing/review platforms. These platforms attract the right target audience for your market already and if you have a great idea, this visibility makes the process of raising money much easier.

However, the ICO listing/review platform segment has also become quite crowded now. Hence the efforts need to be prioritized and the focus should be on two kinds of platforms:

i) Those which attract huge traffic,

ii) Those which attract geography specific traffic.

With a mix of both, your team will be able to gain visibility of internet users spread throughout the world.

For your benefit, we have aggregated a list of 50 important platforms so that you can focus your efforts just on reaching out to these and getting featured.

If we missed out on any platform, please share in comment section. We’ll be happy to edit and update the post.
