Product Hunt release - 200+ upvotes

Thibaut Patel @thibpat

I posted the product on Product Hunt to get some user feedback as it felt like a good enough V1.

I found that I had to upload marketing assets to make the Product Hunt page look nice, so I decided to get:

  1. A screenshot of the page
  2. A GIF from GitIt itself
  3. A screen record as a video demo

I think the video demo is very important because it's making it clearer what your product can do. I used Loom to record the screen because I'm used to the tool and it's straightforward (disclaimer: I work at Loom).

The launch was scary, but the Product Hunt community is quite positive (and they love GIFs). The product ended up #4 of the day with more than 200 upvotes!
