Launch at Product Hunt

Marisa Paramita @chichamarisa

Surprisingly we are number 7, this is a big achievement for our team since we are first-time Software developers who hack the code to make the product work.

Key learnings from this launch:

  1. Make sure your product works on every device. To be honest, our button on the smartphone device broken, but 70% of our visitors use the smartphone. But we manage to fix in the next day.
  2. Build a community that fully supports you before you launch. They will be the one who helps the launch process and share it to bigger community.
  3. Create a short video to engage with voters.
  4. Use gif for logo to tell a story of your vision.

And this is our Producthunt page:
