There are many reasons founders launch on ProductHunt.
For Edupops, the top reasons were:
You can have many goals from your launch and they may be different than others.

This can take some time but we were lucky to have Shivam Jha as our hunter, who’s the best person to hunt us since he’s the founder of Nawvel, a product I personally love and something that’s closely related to Edupops.
He also knows more about ProductHunt than anyone else I know of. He got his startup Nawvel to the #2 Product of the day before he supported Edupops.
The reason I say “good enough” is because everyone’s goals from ProductHunt are different.
We did not launch our very first MVP on ProductHunt as we wanted to get more reach and attract many installs, not just initial feedback.
But we did launch our beta because it was ready to go out to the community for more reach.

Here are the top 5 activities we did starting a month before our launch:
Apart from these, you can also find the list of requirements for the Producthunt listing (including image specs, maker comment, etc) here.
There’s a lot of action on the day of the launch and it’s important to stay active and participate. And it’s a lot of fun!
The launch doesn’t really end on launch day!
We still continue to engage in comments, get great feedback, and enjoy new upvotes coming in on ProductHunt!
