🎉 Launched on Product Hunt

It took a while but Trends.vc is finally on Product Hunt!

Here are some tips I got:

  • Use Preview Hunt to mockup your images and copy. Expect for dimensions to be off a little.
  • Try to get at least 20 upvotes in the first hour (this usually means you're on the front page)
  • Reply to every comment you receive

If you're willing to support, please leave a comment or review 🙏

    Congrats Drew. How do you get 20 upvotes in first hour?

      Thank you. On the votes:

      Twitter, an email list, Indie Hackers, LinkedIn, slack groups.

      There are a lot of ways.

        I gave my “Upvote”; however, I’m not ready for the app as of yet. How can I reserve our free app spot with you as we finish our website?🤓

    Congrats on the launch. I literally just learned about your product today and signed up 1 time after reading a few reviews on PH.

    Reading through the insights, and even though it's "common sense" you're selling it's great to see someone put into a bite-sized format that's easy to understand.

    This is an amazing milestone and an awesome product. If you are stuck or moving fast, this will get you going in the right direction. Give yourself the optionality that comes with better thinking on new markets and ideas. Congrats Dru.
