Do you recognize yourself in the following description:
If that’s the case, then it's clear your product provides real value. Having people go out of their way to tell you is proof of that.
You might still be in beta and don't provide all the bells and whistles of your $1B+ competition. But for the people who choose to use your product, it doesn’t matter.
Maybe because you offer unique features, or because you listen to them and make updates quickly. Or maybe just because you’re a human-sized company and they prefer it.
In any case, it is an undeniable fact that your product brings them real value and makes a positive impact on their lives.
SO WHY AREN’T YOU PROMOTING IT TO MORE PEOPLE?!
You’ve managed to create something of value for the world, and have already changed a few people’s lives for the better. Yet you’re feeling shy about talking about it?
When you don’t promote your product to the world, you not only hurt yourself, you also hurt the people who desperately need your solution. They might be okay using one of your competitors, but if they knew you existed, they would be way better off.
If you have the opportunity to truly make someone’s life better, at no cost (and even at a benefit) to you, wouldn’t you say that it’s your moral duty to do so?
That’s exactly the position that you’re in right now. There are millions of people out there, and most of them have never heard of your product. If you reached out to them, they would feel insanely grateful that you did, because you'd make their lives better.
So go promote it in every way that you can! Go on reddit, go on twitter, go on producthunt, go on meetups...
Give people the gift of discovering your product, so that they can improve their lives. It is your moral duty to do so.
I've followed my own advice and started being less shy about logology lately. Started spreading the word on reddit and ph discussion boards. It's brought some very good results.
