Launching TimeTurtle 🐢 at Product Hunt!

Almar Klein @almarklein

Today is an exciting day - TimeTurtle is launching on ProductHunt! ✨✨

I’ve no idea what to expect, but am hoping to get feedback and a number of new users.

In case you’re interested, here’s what I did:

  • Some weeks ago I started reading articles from others who had launched successfully and collected the ideas. Note that some blog posts advice tactics that are somewhat murky. If you don’t want to be an ass, I’d recommend at least read PH’s own post about launching on PH. I also quite liked this post.
  • Next, I made checklists for things to do before the launch, and things to do on the day of launch itself.
  • Then I made the actual preparations, like preparing a gif thumbnail, screenshots, a video, writing the texts for the launch page and emails to send out to my existing users.
  • Launch on a day that I am available most of the time to respond to questions or fix issues (hopefully the latter is not necessary).
