@httpmax yeah it can be pretty hit or miss. My main suggestions are 1) doing a “Show HN” with a really thoughtful, honest introductory comment (you really don’t want it to come off like you’re just hitting up the HN community for traffic) and 2) line up some people ahead of time to ask questions to get the conversation going
I think it's different for different companies.
Our approach has been too mainly look for ways in which we can help others. I have a product design / business strategy background, so I've spent quite a lot of time helping others with their landing pages. The developer I'm working with has reached out to communities to help younger devs with problems they're having.
We've found that helping others, without conditions, has led people to inquire about our company Magic. (magicmorning.co)
This leads to people signing up... which will hopefully translate to users.
It's not a scaleable approach, but I think it offers a good starting point.
PS, Safeguard looks really cool!
@dimabraven haha, as a designer I probably should have known this one! 😂
Thanks for sharing!
Speaking of hackernews... they could really use some design love. I feel like I go a bit cross eyed every time I'm on there.
