Launch HN: Relatively No-Frills Product Hunt Launch Checklist
8 points by makarov 3 months ago | hide | past | web | favorite | 4 comments
In preparation for our own Product Hunt launch we have started reading about best practices and pre-launch procedures. Having gathered them in an ugly to-do list, we realised that others might find it useful as well. So we made it a bit prettier and decided to share it hoping that it will make someone's life easier.

This to-do list is mainly focused on tasks you can achieve in under 7 days, but you can of course copy it to your GDrive and adjust to your own needs.

Please, let us know if you find this to-do list helpful and we wish everyone a successful Product Hunt launch.

And here's the link: https://www.producthunt.com/posts/relatively-no-frills-ph-launch-checklist

In order to see this list I have to:

- Copy paste the link, which

- Loads product hunt

- Find the link to your website on PH's weird UI

- Finally land on your site (I'm tired already).

- Click a button "Show me the list"

- Enter my email address

- Wait for an email from you.

I'll let you decide if that's an optimal user experience...

Here's the actual link, so you don't have to give out a temporary email address like I did: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/11Db_mfeUocbPSIN52y8h...

I would echo that this is a terribly user-hostile tactic and, to be honest, makes me want to avoid the main product you're launching.

Feels like a way to collect email addresses. Why not just a link to it directly?

Wow, thanks for sharing.
