Are you a Maker or a Hunter?

Just a curious observation - most discussions are started and commented on by Makers only. Hunters, if you are reading this, please leave your comment even if it’s just HEY I'm a Hunter!

You can be both Maker and Hunter. I'm the maker for 1 product and I hunted 5 other products.

The word Hunter has lost a bit of relevance of late. There are a lot of examples where makers succeeded by hunting themselves. We are making and hunting Findz in a few weeks. It's a collaborative bookmarking tool to collect links, files and more with friends and family. Here's the link the our Ship page:

@pritam_nanda92 that was my point - Hunters are hunting themselves, which makes them Makers. Are there real users looking to try out new products?

I'm a maker, primarily. Currently, I'm working on BotMeNot and constantly looking for ways to get feedback on it.
Inna Proshkina
@price2spy Are you launching any time soon?
Misha Krunic
@inna_proshkina Thanks for asking, we've launched the beta version of BotMeNot, but still working on adding a couple of additional features before fully launching.

Currently a Maker - but hopefully becoming a Hunter over time!

I am a maker and hunting my product. I am going to launch my product, Vidmonials, on the 6th of March.
I think I will still call myself a maker. Soon we will hunt our SaaS product - A content curation and social media publishing tool. I think going through the hunter route is still works on PH. Because I think the hunter's reach will definitely get you to the featured page and then your marketing efforts will take you to the product of the day. :)

@imtiyaz922 Maybe hunters just explore new products on the homepage, they don't seem to read discussions.

I am a maker, while simultaneously hunting my own product: In the Product Hunt instructions, they advise Hunting your own product: Of course, I guess this depends based on the specifics of your product, but it looks like the "top hunters" lost some of their previous glory :) So, you are as good as going by yourself. At least, I hope so.

Hello @inna_proshkina I think I am more like a Hunter and I am working to be a Maker. I am trying to come up with different ideas to help startups with their marketing. If you want me to help you with your product and you want me to hunt your product, happy to do it. :) Cheers,

Hi Inna I just launched our product this week and created my first ProductHunt profile. I guess this makes me a Maker for now 😁.

Have hunted a few. Have been part of one Maker's team (TollGuru Toll Intelligence Platform). No doubt it was more exciting (obviously).

I also feel like I'm a little of both 😊 I've been part of some projects as a maker, but I'm also a hunter and have discovered a lot of cool projects here on PH. Don't necessarily feel like I'm a very "influential" hunter, but I'm definitely hunting haha
