When you’re looking to launch your latest product, it’s imperative you choose the best platform for exposure. Not only are you interested in feedback, but you want to generate positive conversation around your product. Most people choose sites like TechCrunch to launch their product, but more and more people are turning to Product Hunt. Why?
Product Hunt can be described as a social news website where community members post the latest products in technology. When a new product gets submitted onto Product Hunt’s website they are eligible for upvotes. It’s simple, the more upvotes your product gets, the more exposure it generates.
What makes Product Hunt so great is that the site acts as a community forum where users are able to generate conversations about each product, whether it’s good or bad.
How to Find New Technologies for Business?
When you visit Product Hunt’s website you will notice they have organized their site to show the popular and newest products of the day first. You are only researching the tip of the iceberg if you stop looking for new products here.
Ask for Advice
If you are the type of person that relies heavily on advice and recommendations then, Product Hunt’s community help desk is the right place for you. Feel free to ask any questions you would like regarding a product or service and Product Hunt’s community will respond with helpful answers.
For those of you who like to research on your own, you can use Product Hunt’s search bar to discover new topics and products. All you have to do is type in the keyword associated with what you’re looking for and search. If your search query is unsuccessful you should not stop looking for new innovations here. Product Hunt evaluates all the products on their website and files them into corresponding collections. By searching their collections you can find something that is similar to what you are looking for. Who knows, you might find something better than what you were searching for initially.
Sort by Topic
The easiest way to find new technology for business is by using Product Hunt’s topic dashboard. For example, if I was looking for a product to increase productivity, I would filter my search to only show results for productivity. Product Hunt then shows you what products are popular this month followed by the hundreds of tools associated with productivity. If I was looking for data management software I could filter by software engineering or tech, and so on. Here is where you can search by trending, date, most commented, and most upvoted.
Endless Opportunities for Growth
Since Product Hunt updates their page to display the popular and newest products daily you will never run out of new technologies for business. They also do a great job with leveling the playing field so no one product dominates the upvote section for days at a time. Product Hunt will reset each upvote counter to zero daily so new and fresh products have a chance to been seen and commented on. This ensures that the comments and feedback are genuine for everyone involved.
What is also great about Product Hunt is that the community consists of people who are interested in new products specifically. Product Hunt regulates who can comment on the site and only those who have been invited by another member can leave comments. You will be able to trust that the comments are more valuable because they are only reviewed by members on the site and not people who are there to bring nothing important to the conversation.
