A few takaways from our recent launch

Hey everyone, I want to share a few takeaways that I had from our launch (Jet Admin, Feb 1st), which hopefully can help someone who's just planning the launch. First of all, upvotes alone don't matter as much. This is well illustrated by the fact that we were competing for 5th place with a product that had roughly 40% more upvotes and it's the last minutes that decided the end result. Additionally, organic growth is significantly more important than artificial one (driven by external traffic). In the last minutes, we lost around 5 upvotes, but some products lost as much as ~100 points. My hypothesis is that the algorithm measures the quality of votes and cuts off below a certain threshold if someone drives external traffic of a low quality. This correlates well with what I heard from one of the top hunters: email newsletters, cold group posts, etc must support the organic growth, not substitute for it. That's it=) I hope there was certain utility in it. Cheers,

Seems to align to what I've heard as well, and it all makes sense really so that the system isn't gamed. Thanks for sharing!
