Do you launch again if your launch went unnoticed?

We thought about it, but nope :)

It's never unnoticed. Even if you got 0 upvotes there is always someone noticing you on the feed or in the upcoming tab. But if you haven't reached your goals with your PH launch, I'd try to find what didn’t work out and plan to be more visible next time (by building a bigger community for example). To answer your question, yes I would re-launch after studying if my product really worth it (but PH allows you to re-launch 6 months after your first launch unless your product has a massive update).

@cica_laure_mbappe Got it! I came across someone who launched their product multiple times in 6 months with new features and in different communities. One more question. Doesn't creating an upcoming post spoil the product idea or invite copycats? I have been wondering about this for quite some time now.

@cica_laure_mbappe very useful information regarding the time for re-launch, thank you!

@strongsoda I'm not sure about that. Well, you can't avoid copycats, but at least it means that your product is good. But one good thing about upcoming pages is that they give you more visibility and enables you to build a PH community before launching your product. And that is super important 😉

I think the right context can be essential. What if your product solves a need that wasn't so common 3-4 months ago, and in that timeframe you've learned things about development, your users and the market. I'd say I'd launch again, maybe as new version, after I know I've improved the product and it now stands a better chance than before.

Will not until I have a enhanced version of the same product. Once I have with extended features then launch it as Version 2.

We think about the launch as iterative! Build something new, launch. Build more new things, launch!
Dillon Peterson
@trevor_lee @strongsoda Seconded. I like that approach Trevor, my team has talked about the same thing!

We did and it went really, really well. First launch in November 2020 went unnoticed and second one in April (super well prepared, full force with the whole team and community) went really well 😊
