One week after launching my second book The Embedded Entrepreneur on Twitter, I have been hunted by Sharath (founder of Shoutout.so) on ProductHunt.
The PH launch has gone very well so far. Within minutes after launching at 12:02 (two minutes after the new day began for the PH servers), I immediately got my Twitter community to engage and get the post to the #1 spot.
Ever since then, people have been upvoting the post and adding questions and comments for me to reply to.
I know that there is still a lot of day left, and anything can happen. But the start of this launch showcases that having an engaged following is extremely beneficial to the early acceleration of a launch effort.
If you're interested in seeing the launch happening in real-time, check out the PH product page for The Embedded Entrepreneur. Any support, all questions, suggestions, and comments are extremely appreciated.
UPDATE! We did it! The Embedded Entrepreneur is product of the day!
