I posted Survais to Product Hunt on Friday... but literally nothing came of it. It didn't get any traction and I was stumped, feeling a bit down about the whole thing really. I did kind of rush it, and had no plan whatsoever so I do realise it was my fault.
However.... Yesterday morning I started getting some email alerts (I set up a personal email to me when a new user signs up to Survais), they were coming in every 30mins to 1 hour, sometimes even just minutes apart.
So I jumped on my little dashboard to see what was going on, and low and behold, the admins over at PH were after cleaning up my submission and reposting it (as I said, it was rushed originally).
It reached #2 at one point during the day but ended #3, which I am elated about. Got a lot of feedback and squashed a lot of bugs yesterday as a result. The signups were coming through even until this morning around 07:30!!
It was such a relief, I just had to share it with someone. I know that a PH submission is a short lived burst but if I hope I can leverage some of these users to help improve and grow Survais.
Anyhow, thanks for reading, just wanted to share an amazing day I had. It is just so hard to grow your SaaS as a bootstrapper, and I know sometimes you just need a little motivational boost to keep you going.
Don't give up!
