Derrick Reimer & Corey Haines discuss launching SavvyCal on Product Hunt

Welcome Derrick Reimer, founder of SavvyCal and Corey Haines, SaaS marketing expert!  We're having an async conversation all about SavvyCal's launch (and re-launches) on Product Hunt.

To kick us off:

  • What were the results from your initial ProductHunt launch?  Traffic, trials, MRR growth, etc.
  • What impact did the subsequent PH launches have on the business?

  • How far along was the product at the time you started planning your PH launch?
  • What things did you want to have in place prior to launching on PH?  product features, audience size, etc.
  • Did you do anything on PH's platform early on (like sign up for a membership, build a PH-specific subscriber list, etc.) to boost your chances of success later on?

  • Share your screen and show us how you structured your PH page, the emails and tweets to promote it and your thinking there.
  • Knowing what you know now, is there anything you would have done differently or better next time?

Our 2nd bedroom doubles as an office/storage room so unfortunately it's not a very aesthetically pleasing workspace 😂

Here’s one of my favorite “offices” :). I walk to this coffee shop many times per week, order a cappuccino, and get a good session in. I enjoy the constraints of the small laptop screen for these session.
