I kind of feel out of options on ways to advertise my product. I have seen many indie makers, who are in some way influencers, and they use their popularity to advertise their products. Some people "make in public" to gain that popularity. But what if I don't want to do that. How do I acquire new customers? (other than paid advertising).
Do I mail random people? Do I dm them? Tweet day and night? Start blogging? Start writing popular posts on Indiehacker?
Do I post it on producthunt, and hope it hits. What if it doesn't? What if it does but only lasts for a couple of days?
Is there no other way?
