What the title says. I'm launching a product on PH for the first time. This is for the PH veterans out here - what's your best advice pre, during and post-launch? Thank you!


I've not launched yet, but as a Solo founder I collects insights from my fellow founders who have launched, and keeps marketing at the priority 1. - Although keep the priority 1 = Marketing before, on, and after launch - Prior to launch, engage with your target audience regularly, and try to realize them about the problem you have solved. (Best option to do so is Twitter). - Launch your product with few audience, need to relaunch it on many other platforms, may help you to enhance your visibility. Here you will have more opinions on this.

I read these articles ( here's a link: ) before my launch and ended 4th product of the day (with zero online presence). My advice is to read them all. :)

Heya Mia! Suuuper curious about what you are cooking in your secret marketing labs haha There are some great guides out there that you might want to check out: @draptis wrote this piece: @michael_sieb also wrote a very exhaustive guide: Would consider both as must-reads - we oriented heavily on them for our launch! :) Lmk in case you ever need feedback on your launch collaterals.
@draptis @michael_sieb @carlo_thissen Nice to see you here Carlo!! :) Thank you so much for the resources, bookmarking them for future reference haha ;)

I launched on PH for the first time today 🎉 My advice is to get the Product Hunt Launch Checklist by @falak_sher and a lot of sleep prior to the launch.

- Launch as early as possible in the day. - Set realistic expectations. Here's an article that talks about what you could expect from the PH launch, real stories from real founders. - Even if your Product does not get much attention, don't worry about it. Just keep at it.

I've read a lot of articles but I think the most helpful source is this YouTube channel This guy has done a lot of launches and has huge experience.
