If you plan to launch your product on Product Hunt. Here are my top 3 tips:
1. Know the technical!
Give it a read before launching your product, you will learn a lot about how to make your product listing the most optimal and beautiful! ✨
2. Warm-up the launch
Make an announcement 24 → 48 hours before the launch.
Let your friends, family, coworkers, Twitter/Facebook followers, private group chats know about it.
Don’t be afraid to send them a DM asking for support, it’s a special occasion, people are willing to help! (just don’t do it every week/month, haha)
3. It’s ok to launch again with a new major feature of the same product!
When you add a new major feature to your product, you can launch it again! The Real-time Twitter Banner was a new feature of BlackMagic.so, which I launched 2 months before.
Even with the same product, it’s generally accepted that you can launch again with major updates after 6-12 months. But it has to be a major update. Use this to your advantage! 😄
