Today I launched my product on Product Hunt! I started the day right up at the top, but am now sitting at #6 with 417 upvotes and 134 comments.
I decided to launch on a Thursday as I wanted more traffic to my product. But oh boy, today feels like the Avengers have arrived to play. So today feels like little me (David) vs big companies (Goliaths)
Want to share 5 lessons, framed as "what I did well" & "what I could have done better"
-Prepare more copy to seed on different platforms. I decided to wing it today as it's my first launch and I wanted to have fun, but I realized that many huge companies have launched today! I have to be at many places at the same time, so write-ups that were prepared ahead of time would have gone a long way.
-Be less shameless about self-promotion on channels outside of Twitter. For bigger reach, I need to exploit more channels.
Thankful for everyone from the Indie Hackers community who has chipped in. You inspire me every day! If you could take the time to support & comment on PH I would be so grateful.
