Hello, fellow Indie Hackers. I have just launched WhenToLaunch, an analytics platform based on Product Hunt to let makers know the optimum time to launch their product to receive maximum traction.
WhenToLaunch helps you determine the optimum date to launch your product on Product Hunt.
This app is the outcome of a simple script that I built to analyze the trend of products and upvotes on Product Hunt using the ProductHunt API. I also wanted to track when users are most active on upvoting so that I could schedule the launch better.
After building and using the script for a few days, I noticed that there are optimal times when a product should be launched to maximize views/upvotes. My gut told me that the best way to figure out when to launch my product was based on analyzing data, and I was proven right.
I shared my findings with a few of my fellow makers and asked if they also struggled to figure out when to launch their products. And guess what, they did. So I decided to publish this as an app, to make it easy for anyone to use this tool.
This is a very modest start that could turn into a bigger analytics platform, but initially, does this solve anyone else's problem here?
More analytics based on category and upvotes for products will be added to make the app better. Please let me know if you want something more to be added into this or any feedback here.
Currently, I have opened it for closed invites so I can get feedback from makers and improve it. So please check it and let me know.
