Priced or free MVP?

What do you guys think? Personally, I think the first 2 iterations of the MVP should be free, and then when you launch public the original users get to keep it for their troubles (bug reporting etc) . It should be on the condition that you can send them inquiries about the product to get feedback. Say you limit the first batch to 100 people and the second to 200. to gauge interest etc.

Best way to share my free B2B lead generation tool?

Long story short, I had trouble finding custom boxes and packing materials for a small glass whiteboard company, so I created a B2B platform focused on generating quotes quickly and efficiently for the packing and corrugated box industry. It started as a little side project, and then it grew. I’ve talked with many small to medium sized manufacturers excited to sign up and use the tool. Just this week I’ve been getting quote requests coming through and passing them along to manufacturers and distributors. I’d like to share the tool with as many as I can but since it’s really just a labor of love right now I don’t have a huge budget. What’s the best way to keep growing this tool organically?
