We decided to make a general post to hacker news on the 28th of August, not really expecting anything out of it. Once we posted (https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=20817762) we reached out to a hand full ( under 10) friends and went about our day which included prospect meetings and development.
To our surprise, we landed up on page 1 of hacker news (https://twitter.com/ravivyas84/status/1166732210235305985)
This also gave us a boost in traffic, around 2300 PVs in 2 days, else we are at an average of around 20 PVs a day. It got 18 new folks to signup for early access
What helped, we believe, is having a good enough home page ( this is our 3rd iteration post a lot of feedback) which showed the value. We also took insights from https://www.cortes.design/ and our past learning of Jobs to be done, which is why we had a use cases page.
We were also active on HN responding to folks, they can get very very critical of you.
