Everyone knows PH.
This is a great place to get initial traction.
I bet you saw articles like "Launched on PH and got 10K traffic"
It was like this. 2-3 years ago for sure.
But this is my story,
Yesterday I wanted to launch on Product Hunt with a piece of content.
It's a LinkedIn Marketing Checklist - https://ilya.today/checklist
Other people did that, and I thought that this is a great idea to test.
I spent a day to prepare everything (found hunter, prepared images and so on).
But this checklist didn't appear on the home page in popular.
I spent 6 hours talking to the support team.
It didn't help.
So if you want to launch on PH some piece of content - ask support before you launch it about their thoughts.
