I am new to Product Hunt, but is it necessary to contact a Hunter to gain visibility during the launch of a new product?

Based on my experience, it does help if the hunter has followers. It gives you the initial push but beyond that I don't see a point.

If you want to be the number 1 product of the day just contact me I have helped many startups to do that on the product hunt here is my Twitter - https://twitter.com/whyucan_com

It is less strong than before. It still gives a small boost, but it is not a must to launch. You can check out https://upvote-bell.com/leaderboard to find some hunter.

@fabian_maume Thanks! I started to reach out some hunters yesterday but it feels like it's difficult mission

@weynspire I would advice you to fix yourself a deadline for your lunch. If you cannot get a hunter at least 2 weeks before your deadline, launch without hunter.

@fabian_maume Actually I already launched my product yesterday and I thought it would be possible to ask a hunter even though I've already launched my product
