Launch Metrics

Wow, it's been a super cool day yesterday 🙏🏻. I announced SaaS Manual on Product Hunt without a ton of expectations and the response has been amazing.

Before diving into the metrics though, have a look at the picture above. I took this yesterday evening at the sea in The Netherlands, just too good 🌊☀️. And if you haven't joined the journey yet, here you go:

Now let's dive in. In the spirit of being fully transparent about the process of building SaaS Manual into a fully-fledged product, let me share the metrics I have so far:

SaaS Manual made it to #9 on yesterdays launch day 🎉🙏🏻. It hovered around #8 for a long time even. Nothing what I expected and I am super happy about this. As of now, 225 folks voted for SaaS Manual, thank you all ❤️.

Twitter, Reddit and Indie Hackers

I shared the announcement on Twitter and gained 18 new followers on my personal account. The SaaS Manual account has 9 followers. Hi wonderful people 👋🏻. I also posted the announcement on this and this Reddit thread and Indie Hackers.

What's next?

I am planning to share on Hacker News coming Tuesday (October 20th, 2020) as the last bigger push to get the word out. After that, I will exclusively focus on actual lesson content.

The first lesson will be how to build a product landing page on Notion (this is what currently is and it works amazingly well right now. I'll share the tools I am using, like Cloudflare, Notion, etc. which helped me get started with this.

Take care and until the next update!
