When a MVP or Beta Product is ready to be launched on ProductHunt?

When is the right time to launch a product on ProductHunt? Is it better to have a small community first and engage more with the social community to get the project more known first? When did you launch your product? I got an almost ready MVP of an Open-source project to be launched, to secure and improve DevOps work in Cloud. It is my thought to release the GitHub Repository and Website first, then create a launch day later, when the project came out from the MVP and turn into a Beta. Also is it better to launch a product with a hunter or by myself? Any advice? Thanks in advance, Andrea

@vlad_zaev Thanks for the advice and good question! What your product is about?
@andrea_cavagna It is about getting feedback for local businesses from their customers with just a link. And yours?

@jhlyeung It's so hard to know the right timing! Are you about to launch a new product?

@andrea_cavagna I "launched" the initial shitty MVP a few months ago and it was clearly not ready. Now I am debating when to launch next (still struggling to retain the existing users)

@jhlyeung We are going to launch out first MVP, in one or two week, but we are still not ready for launch. What's your product is about?
