It is definitely not easy to market a product. When I first began, I thought that by dropping my product link and a short pitch at community websites like Reddit, Product Hunt, Quora, Discord/Slack groups would be enough to generate reasonable traction. Apparently, I was very wrong. Nothing really happened when I did that. There are literally hundreds of products launching every day and to stand out, dropping a link and a pitch wouldn't be enough. I realized I needed to do better.
Websites and articles like https://marketingexamples.com/, https://saashacker.co/saas-marketing/, https://justinjackson.ca/build helped me learn a lot on how to market a product. I'm trying my best to follow each guide and with each checkbox ticked, I can see things are slowly unfolding. I have a couple of hundred users but it took a while to have 100 profiles created.
