Is launching on Product Hunt worth it?

There's so much out there on HOW to launch here on PH, but not so much of a discussion on whether it's worth the effort. After our launch where we took #1 product of the day, I sat down to run an analysis on whether it was worth it or not. Put all our findings here: https://www.alpeaudio.com/post/i... Curious to hear your thoughts on this topic!

Great writeup. To be honest, the video was the best part and made it all worth it.

Splendidly written. A landmark contribution to launching on Product Hunt. Before I read your article I was under the impression that unless you already have a huge community of followers, getting on top of Product Hunt will be a constant battle. Thanks for clearing the mist.

@avidnote @dsarkar it’s definitely much harder since less friends have β€œgood” profiles but it is doable - You just need a battle plan

Social Media Manager at CoinGate
Thank you for sharing a nice wrap-up with valuable tips from your experiences! I wish I have read your tips before launching products on PH! :) PH is worth it if you work hard on the engagement before/after the launch and attract recognized hunters from the community. Most importantly, you need to have people from the product/company/project team eager to join discussions and engage with comments! I have found the PH as a helpful community, but it hasn't significantly impacted traffic/conversions. For sure, CoinGate cryptocurrency payment processing/trading products aren't for the general public, but our brand recognition can be affected with the proper engagement.
