How did you prepare?

@maciej_cupial We did a thorough testing for the product. We also used social media to spread a word about the product. We are ready with all the things that we need to launch on PH.

Here are 2 pieces of advice: 1. Engage on Twitter, DM people, and retweet people in advance and get your account active before the launch. We noticed that lots of traffic actually came from our Twitter presence during PH launch. 2. While you can aim for top 5, don't feel too much pressure from it. It's amazing if you get up there, but the expectation sometimes takes away from the excitement of this experience. You'll have the chance to launch again... and again... and again, so no sweat if it doesn't go the way you might expect it to.

@maxine_buchert Hi, Can you share a message format you used to dm them on twitter?

We did a lot of activity before we launched. We had been preparing for almost a month. A few tips I would like to share - 1) Post across all your social media channels on the launch day and even if you are on other communities like Indie Hackers, Reddit, Startup School, etc. 2) Reach out to people in different Slack communities before the launch & even on the launch day. 3) Organise all the people you have been talking to about your launch in one single sheet. So that on D-day, it will be easier to inform them. 4) Create an upcoming page for people to subscribe to you before your launch, but if you're less than 1 week to launch - it won't as useful now. This was our upcoming page - https://www.producthunt.com/upco... 5) Find a hunter, it really helps. Though we didn't have one and we were still the #10 product of the day and managed to get around 100 upvotes. But the right hunter can help you even more. 6) Create your launch page & schedule it 2 days before launch. So you can revisit and make changes easily if required. 7) Schedule the launch for 12:01 AM PST or 1:31 PM IST. 8) Don't stress much, and just enjoy the rush.

Different from everyone else here....don't forget to breathe. This is a stressful time. If your mind is overworked, you won't be able to do your best. Take some moments to focus on self-care throughout a high-stress but high reward time period!
ankita singh
@complyant Hahaha thank you to remind me to breathe I was already so stressed but things are goin smooth now, we almost have everything now

Launch Day is always something that makes the tummy turn upside down. Here's one of my favorite blogs that gave me some ideas: https://compile.blog/product-hun... Although I am still away from the launch; am always gathering valuable resources. Hope this helps.

@ankita_singh14 My 2 cents would be to Engage with as many hunters as you can and drop your upcoming landing page so we all can keep an eye and wish you all the best for your launch :)
