Is it possible to launch without a pre-warmed audience?
Anyone had a successful launch despite not min-maxing? Will my product get lost in the sea of products if I simply go with the flow?
new to this as well and doing our launch of Kittl within 10 days from idea to execution this Thurday. I'll be able to let you know if this is working out in a few days!
@jan_beisheim cool, good luck. keep me posted!
@shem_l not going too bad so far - #4 of the day. www.producthunt.com/posts/kittl
@jan_beisheim I saw, awesome stuff 😎 what did you use to make the marketing materials, they look slick!
@shem_l good question! I'll have to pass that one over to our creative director @tobias_saul
Yes, you can launch without a prewarmed audience. If you do so I would however strongly advise you to look for a hunter. https://upvote-bell.com/leaderboard is a good tool for it. You will certainly not make it to the top 5 products of the day but you will still get some exposure and a do-follow link from product hunt. Moreover, you will have the option to relaunch 6 months later if you have some major update (you might have some prewarm audience by then). So I definitely recommend you do go for a no-frill launch even without a pre-warmed audience: https://medium.com/@fabian-maume...
/@fabian @fabian_maume thank you, appreciate the pointers
/@fabian @fabian_maume also had a read of that article, great insights! I'm slightly more convinced to do a no frills first launch now
