Accidentally Went Viral on HackerNews

We accidentally went viral on HackerNews. Literally a day before our official launch on ProductHunt, a random person posted a year-old blog post from our site to HN and we signed up 3x more customers in one day than we did since we started (~1 yr). We went viral.

  • 10,000+ new visitors in 1 day
  • 50 new companies signed up (qualified)
  • 100+ comments
  • ~200 upvotes
  • Stayed in top 10 of HN for whole day

We launched on PH the next day: https://www.producthunt.com/posts/tim-4
