How do you use "Ship" updates? 🚢

Right now, we are working on our "upcoming" Ship page (what an awesome tool). Just wondering what kind of updates you've received as a subscriber or sent as a product maker. What worked best for you? Telling us about the process of making your product ("behind the scenes" moments)? Sending product updates? I would appreciate any great ideas you may have! 🙌

You can use it to tell subscribers what you have built last 30 days or whats is your overall progress and plan. I guess your product is still not launched since you asking about Ship. But you can use it to share relevant information or articles you found. Good tweet or video. Or maybe just to ask people what they want and to engage with them.

@lior_galante_cohen Hey not bed. Honestly instead of GIF I would use 2-3 minutes video with voice over, explaining the product.

@stefan_smiljkovic Thank you for the feedback! We're actually working on a video, but it will probably only be ready in 2-3 weeks. Once it is, we'll consider replacing the GIF, or send it as an update to our subscribers.

A mix of both tbh. Having bts moments is a good way to connect with the product itself, but updates are needed to convey advancement in the overall process. A 30% bts - 70% updates seems like a good ratio imho

This is our latest Ship message update just providing access to our beta: https://www.producthunt.com/upco... It'd be nice though, to think of some way to engage more with the audience. Also interested in creative examples of how people are providing updates :)

Like yourself, we are using Ship for an upcoming product page. We want to give our subscribers a drip of relevant content leading up to the app's launch. Like content marketing videos. https://www.producthunt.com/upco...

@lior_galante_cohen Love the gif of the product! That's something I think would boost any upcoming page. I think your CTA is on point too.

@adam_madden Hey Adam! Congrats on launching your ship page! I just checked it out, looks very professional. What I would love to see as a user is some product screenshots / a video, to give me a better sense of what the product really is.
