Hey Shopify people!
Just over a month ago I started a weekly newsletter that would send out all of the newly published Shopify Apps from that previous week. The idea was to help Shopify Merchants discover new apps for their stores.
I started by sending it out to my network, did some promotion on Reddit/Shopify forms and it has been gaining some real traction. I maintained that for a couple of weeks and quickly gained over 100 subscribers to the newsletter. Each week we had around 40-50% opens and about 20% clicking.
As I was doing the newsletter every week I was realizing that there were enough new Shopify apps every day to justify a daily newsletter, but felt that was too noisy. I then got the idea to implement a leaderboard like product hunt, but instead only focus on the Shopify App niche. With that I created a platform I'm calling Huntify (www.huntify.io)!
The concept is straightforward, each day a set of new Shopify apps get published to a leaderboard, where users can vote them up or down.
There are a bunch of features that I still need to build out, like an app details page where users can get a better understanding of the app and interact with the app developer.
You can check it out here - www.huntify.io. I am looking for feedback from Shopify Merchants, Shopify App Developers, anyone that uses Shopify!
