Hey, hunters! I wanted to ask, what is your main current source of traffic? Organic social media? Paid social media? Ads? Communities? Your blog? Let us know in the comments!


Paul VanZandt
Our traffic is all organic from mainly our blog and landing page. We haven't explored paid ads at all but we might delve into that in the future. Congrats on finalizing a launch date!
Martina Hackbartt
@paul_vanzandt Hi Paul! All organic? Sounds amazing. And thanks! :)
Iya Mendoza
@paul_vanzandt that's awesome. If you don't mind me asking, how does that working out in terms of revenue? Is everything cool, or still getting in there?
Paul VanZandt
@iyamendoza01 We are mainly focusing on driving interactions and usage for our product rather than revenue, so this organic traffic isn't bringing in a lot of money.

google ads, we started with a low budget around 40$ per month

I've used Google Ads for years with almost every product I've made. Used to use Video ads but now only pay for search ads.

Mostly Twitter - but slowly working on Content to have some more organic results
Martina Hackbartt
@maxwellcdavis Sounds really good! Do you use paid ads on twitter or just organic traffic? Just followed you and collab!
Maxwell Davis
@martina_hackbartt Just organic - once you get consistent it gets much easier to get traffic (and I don't even have a big following!)

We just launched on PH on May 2nd and this is clearly the main driver for these past 48hours!

Traffic sources for https://adminkit.io/ are mostly SEO, GitHub (social) and affiliate links.

Hi Martina! It's mainly through our blog and youtube tutorials! We're really passionate about what we write so we began to write early in our journey, and we had some insights that gave us good followers. Really helped with SEO down the line

@zayd_simjee Hi Zayd! Wow, sounds great. Share the link to your blog with us so we can check it out! What do you write about?
Zayd Simjee
@martina_hackbartt yeah, https://blog.tinystacks.com. We mainly write about tradeoffs in the cloud and how-to-aws guides. Other folks on the team have been writing more frequently these days, I'm in build mode right now but I'm itching to get something out there.
Google Ads for the moment ! And you ?

Mostly organic traffic from search and blogs. We also try to share out link a lot - so over 50% of the traffic is direct. I want to start on ads, but find them a bit unreliable, like a moving target where you need to spend more and more each month.

Twitter provides bursts of traffic while long term constant traffic comes from articles in dev and design related blogs

We've discontinued paid for one of our products a few months ago, so... organic social media, articles, etc. Btw, we’re launching in late May or the beginning of June. Check out our upcoming PH page: www.producthunt.com/upcoming/eff... Our project is called: Effecto. It’s an app for detailed habits, health, symptoms, and meds tracking. Pretty much for everything that is related to your physical or mental health and every daily factor that can affect you.

Direct traffic represents 60%; referrals by email account for some other 10%

Mostly LinkedIn, for now. Soon will be SEO.
Hi, I have found online referral works quite well. When a customer signs-up to their own login, they instantly get a referral code link to share with their friends on social media. A good experience people recommend!
Arun Pariyar
Thats interesting @richw. How do you manage that ?
Rich Watson
@arunpariyar Well our app originally started with a Discord bot, and this is where our userbase is starting- so our roots are in the Discord stock/crypto trading community. Without going into detail about what the app & bot does- Our bot is available to any Discord server/community to add and use, and the website displays all the data and users statistics where each user has their own dashboard, so it goes hand in hand with using the bot. Users also share their content from our app elsewhere so that also generates traffic.
Dylan Merideth
indie hackers, twitter, and our blog, what about for ReSkript?
Cameron Graham
We've invested a lot of time into our blogs and SEO for a large list of keywords, so we're mostly getting organic traffic to our blogs right now, which leads to visitors viewing our main page.

they are coming from organic search plus organic social.
