Not to worry, I will try again!

But I'm hoping I can get some feedback from anyone here who knows what makes a good and bad launch, so I can do better next time.

Here's the launch page: https://www.producthunt.com/posts/one-week-to-make

Thank you for any feedback :)

    Buying some upvotes helps. Not gonna advice to build an audience first.

    You already had a gif for your product I don't see why it didn't grab thousands of votes.

      I used a GIF for the logo, only 13 upvotes. I didn't even get featured on the front page. Besides the animated logo, what did you do right?

      1. 2

        These products aren't mine. I firmly believe they bought upvotes.

    2. 1

      Haha, gif magic. Congrats on your successful launches though!
