Does Product Hunt automatically add a Product Hunt Google Analytics reference tag to product links? by KulfiSoftware
1. The product should not be bad
Does Product Hunt automatically add a Product Hunt Google Analytics reference tag to product links? Seriously. Many startups create unnecessary things. Even if you have prepared well and made a decent PR job, you will not be able to achieve good results, as long as nobody is in need of your product.
Do not confound it with ‘complete full version’ or ‘it has no bugs’ situation. Product Hunt community is very loyal and clearly understands that the ideal result is difficult to be gained, especially when it’s just the first version of a product.
2. Create a checklist
Distribute the tasks between teammates, follow the checklist daily and avoid throwing off the schedule. Schedule the launch time beforehand and follow it to the minute. Well scheduled work provides noticeable results.
3. Have a clear and good looking landing page
If you don’t have a good landing page, you can lose half of your users. If the launch is a success, your website will get 1–20 thousand visitors a day. And be sure they will be pushing all the buttons and links on it.
Traits of an ideal landing page:
- Clean design.
- Sharp and short texts.
- CTA button with high conversion. Our landing page top button has 9% conversion rate, while at launch time it spiked up to 14%.
- Top bar informing about your launch on Product Hunt. Many visitors will come to your website from mass media. This means you have to direct them to Product Hunt, so that they upvote your product. Such a bar can be made using Hellobar or Introbar.
