Hi Fellow Makers,
So I'm here again with another helpful post. So I launched my product today on ProductHunt and within 4hours I went to 3rd rank on PH.
You guys would be amazed to know that, I went to 3rd rank with very few upvotes.
I had 47 upvotes while the 4th product then had 76 upvotes.
Do you know why I was 3rd despite having fewer upvotes?
The answer is engagement. So I stay pretty active in Telegram communities and try to help whenever possible. This helped me build a personal relationship with a lot of makers.
So when I shared the launch news with them, they went ahead to not just upvote but also leave a nice comment on the PH page.
So lesson learned, being helpful helped me in long term.
Even Neil Patel(one of the well-known SEO expert) said the same thing in one of his videos.
