Launched on Product Hunt. SO nervous.

Martin Wong @landland

I don’t think I’ve been this nervous and anxious in a while. mailfloss is live on Product Hunt and it’s super nerve-wracking sharing it with the PH community. I read just about every article about launching on PH I could find and I used PH’s Ship Pro plan and their Upcoming feature for about three weeks and got the #1 hunter to hunt it so I hope it helps. 🤞

mailfloss is a bulk email verification service that automatically removes invalid emails from your email lists. There’s no code or spreadsheets required. This was a side-project I built after being frustrated with existing solutions. I was busy and needed a set and forget solution that didn’t exist. Afaik, it's the only fully automated solution there is.

I think I’m just naturally shy and introverted and having the spotlight on something I’ve built is quite uncomfortable to me. In a way I think I’m worried people won’t like it even though I have awesome customers who do. I don’t think I’ll do another “launch” like this again.
