Startup Monday: Daily Deals For Startups

There’s a daily deals site that I discovered this year that has quickly become a favorite of mine. It’s called AppSumo and while the tagline for the site is, “Daily Deals for Web Geeks” many of the deals they offered are absolutely incredible for Startups. While just about every web geek (like myself) on the planet will love the deals AppSumo offers, many of them are incredibly useful for Startups containing training and tutorials from some very successful people in the Startup world.

appsumoWhat I really like about AppSumo is that their deals span just about every department within a startup. Recently they’ve had deals covering topics such as: hiring secrets, link-building tips and tricks, HTML5 tutorials, startup stories and lessons learned, and much more. AppSumo is run by Noah Kagan a successful entrepreneur who has worked for Microsoft, Intel, and Facebook where he came-up with the idea for real-time updates.

After Facebook Noah started creating events for young technology entrepreneurs to socialize and learn. He then worked for Mint as the Director of Marketing for a little under a year before founding Gambit, a payment engine for virtual games. AppSumo is Noah’s most recent project and as you can see from his resume, Noah is a real innovator!

So if you’re running a startup and looking for great tutorials, interviews, and software to inspire your team and learn from other startups AppSumo should be high on your list. I’m not being paid to say this, I’ve never met Noah before, and I don’t have an affiliate link hidden anywhere in this post. I’m writing about AppSumo because I know how valuable it is for startups and this is Startup Monday, so enjoy!

    I thoroughly enjoy AppSumo and have made about 10 purchases. I can’t say what, because their site is down as I’m writing this (probably thanks to one Morgan Linton!). In addition to offering great deals on great products, Noah appears to be a straight shooter. Once upon a time, an AppSumo offering contained some false info. Within hours, Noah shot out an apology e-mail and offered a refund. My only gripe is…where did Free Friday go?!?!

    Startups.com is a similar service that I subscribe to, but they haven’t fit my money spending fancy as much.
