First attempt at Side Project Marketing

Harry Dry @harrydry

This past week I spent building Startup Gifs: A collection of gifs to brighten up your startups Slack channel

The idea is (fingers crossed) I can use this it as a honeypot, to draw some attention and then from that some new users check out my main project: Marketing Examples!

I made sure to host the project on my own domain. That way if I get any backlinks the “link juice” will flow to other pages on Marketing Examples helping them rank better.

I also wanted to do draw attention to Marketing Examples in a creative way.

So I bought a load of nice stickers and sharpie's and made some cards spelling out, "I built this to promote Marketing Examples". and turned it into a GIF itself.

Hopefully this tongue in cheek self promotion gets more attention.

Anyway, I've just launched Startup Gifs on Product Hunt this morning! Any feedback is appreciated.

I'll write an update seeing how successful this was! Either way, I had a fun time making it. Hope it makes you laugh. Any feedback / questions, I'll be in the comments!
