Product Hunt 4.0 is the best that has happened to Product Hunt yet. Easily one of my most favorite websites these days, and I see myself coming back daily to maintain my streak. I am at a 20 day streak now and I hope to see badges evolve with daily streaks - some sort of perks for people coming more often?
This update is super useful for people deciding whether or not to use a product. Sometime you want to do a deep dive into a product before deciding whether or not to use it.
The "😻 reviews" feature, as well as the "🔗 Around the Web" section makes this deep dive super easy.
To increase traffic and visibility to your website, that can make a huge difference, list your startup at betapage.co. Also feature your startup in the betapage newsletter that has 20000+ subscribers, to gain a huge advantage over others. So I recommend it to anyone who wants to draw attention to their website.
Great for tech startups
- I built some relationships with my early users on Twitter for free. I did end up spending $33 on ads that were not too effective, however, I learned a lot in the process. If you're curious, I wrote about it on Medium: What I Learned About Your SXSW Experience
- Lowercase Alpha is free (from what I understand) for founders to post on, but you'll have to know someone at Lowercase Capital (eg. @sacca, @mazzeo, @jacksondahl, or @lazalberto) to help you get onto their list. Alpha will send out TestFlight links to their subscribers, who can then download your app & give you feedback on it. Efficient, easy, but you might have to call in a favor to get ahold of someone at lowercase.
