A little update 👀
Since posting to Hacker News at 12PM EST today:
🖼 +100 new amazing products were added
📈 The post on HN had received a whopping 184 points and 460 comments
I am so grateful for all the support! 🙏🏼
This day is working out pretty well for lockdownshowcase.com
So I launched on Product Hunt at 12AM PST like all the launch guides had said
✅ Launch on PH
I woke up late 😅....at 8AM and started working on promoting the launch.
✅ At least I woke up, gotta be grateful 😴
5 minutes before I went for lunch, I read howtolaunch dot fyi guide to launching your product and realized that I should post to Hacker News as well. So I made a post titled: "What did you make during lockdown?" and called people to post their products in lockdownshowcase.com.
✅ Post on HN 👾
I didn't think much of it and went for lunch.
✅ Lunch 🌯
Came back from lunch and just casually checked HN and suddenly saw that in during the hour I was lunching the post exploded with over 150 upvoted and 200 comments. I checked Lockdown Showcase and there were 50 products in the list (there were only 4 when I left).
✅ Mind Blown 🤯
Since then the post became #2 on the site and then ended up converted to an Ask HN post and quietly disappear from the front page. Though it is still trending top #5 in Ask HN.
Aftermath, since the HN post came up at 12:00PM:
👀 +1000 page views
🦹♀️ +700 unique visitors
🖼 +90 products added to the site
It's been a hell of a ride in my first real experience of the internet.
Let me know what you think.
What started as a tweet calling for a leaderboard for products made during lockdown, became my very first no-code launch on product hunt.
Browse through products or add your own 💫
Hope it is helpful to makers right now.
I've been experimenting with different no-code tools and decided to make a site that showcases all the great products made by makers during lockdown
