1st on PH and $2K in 24 hours!

Yesterday's launch was huge success for Reader Mode Premium with it being the 1st Product of the Day and made exactly $2,023 just in the last 24 hours!

This is not the first time I got the 1st place on Product Hunt though, I made it last time with the original version of Reader Mode/Reader Mode Pro 6 months ago. But this is the first time surely that I made this much money in just 24 hours.

The goal with Reader Mode Premium is is to create a sustainable revenue stream and MRR, thus achieving a financial and life freedom and be able to work on Reader Mode for full time. My target is by the end of the year that I would be able to fully achieve this 😊

      Congrats, @ryzalyusoff!

      Interested as well. Could you reveal your secret of building a video like yours, please?

  2. 3

    Awesome, @ryzalyusoff. Could you share whether people preferred monthly, yearly or lifetime package? Want to know what's people's preference when buying packages. Thank you!

    1. 4

      Sure. Based on the launch, a lot of people prefer Lifetime purchase. Second is monthly followed by yearly

    Congratulations! This milestone is all the more remarkable given the fact that most economies are hibernating because of the Wuhan virus pandemic.
    ... great website by the way

    1. 1

      Thanks for the kind words! ^^

  27. 1

    What a beautiful product! Congratulations. I am working on a dating app, and exploring a few other business ideas too. I hope I can be like you one day!

    1. 1

      aw you totally can! Keep going and trying things out!

  28. 1

    GREAT results! Congratulations :)

    May I be a little bit pedant and point out two things which I'd improve on the landing page? Really, they immediately caught my eye.

    1. Logo. It's wwaay too blurred, you may easily make an svg for such logo which would scale everywhere. Or just put higher resolution.

    2. Buttons "get it now" and "Try for free". In the "get it now" I'd change color, since it's gray on dark and it's not standing out. In both buttons I'd make them a little bit bigger, especially font size

    https://prnt.sc/sa1c0i Here is a draft

    1. 1

      wah thank you of being kind enough putting this feedback together! Really appreciate it and will do the fix! :))

  29. 1

    Looks great, what tool did you use for product demo? That was on point 👏

    1. 1

      Thanks! I use After Effect and Premier Pro 😊
