Soft launch on Product Hunt

This post was first published on Indie Hackers.

Although was never gonna be a Product Hunt superstar, it’s good for my mind to just check out this milestone when building a new thing.

I usually do Product Hunt, Hacker News + few subreddits first; and move to an actual day-to-day marketing and promotion of the new thing within the next few days after processing the initial feedback.

This time I did only PH with HN and Reddit to come next week.

I scheduled the post for Sunday (that’s right), but when I checked later that day, it was re-scheduled for Tuesday and eventually launched on Monday! Someone at PH probably had some fun with that, hehe. However it actually served me well as Remote Weekly got 94 upvotes, 400 visitors and 150 subscribers. Not bad for a newsletter 🤷
