The complete guide to Product Hunt success

When I first heard of Product Hunt I was immediately hooked. I was able to find new and awesome products on there and I was consuming the content on a daily basis.


I started to see people sharing their Product Hunt success. There were startups generating thousands of new users, apps getting thousands of downloads and authors making thousands of dollars.


I started studying. As a “growth hacker”, I wanted to replicate the success that others were having and take it another level. I read every resource I could find – from blog posts to eBooks to podcast interviews.

And now…

I’ve successfully launched an eBook that hit #1 on Product Hunt and generated over $3,000 from Product Hunt alone.

I’ve also helped clients get featured on Product Hunt which has led to thousands of downloads during launch week.

And I’ve discovered a mistake that most startups make when they’ve found success on Product Hunt and will reveal how I’ve turn this mistake for even more press coverage.

Founder at AppMasters

Then in 2013 I decided to start a podcast so I could pick the brains of app creators that I admired including the co-founder of Shazam, Tapbots, Crossy Road, etc and that changed everything.

Now I run an app marketing agency where we’ve helped 28 clients get featured by Apple, 5X downloads with ASO, and get coverage on Techcrunch, Mashable, Venture Beat and other major publications. I also write about apps on The Next Web,, and on my blog
