Hi all, thanks in advance for your advice.
I launched ux-app about 3 weeks ago and it seems to have gone well. I tweeted it to a designer I knew was a member of Product Hunt and he was happy to post the site. It ended up at about 3rd position for the day and drove tons of traffic (16k uniques over 3-4 days!). The producthunt community is really great. I got loads of positive feedback which was nice to hear after developing the product for so long.
I also posted to Reddit which got laods of positive feedback and ended up bringing in about 2-3k visits, not bad for a fairly niche product.
From all this traffic I got my first 3 paying customers which is great!
What would you suggest as being a good way to continue promoting the product? I’m reasonable active on forums and twitter. This brings in the occasional follower, retweet etc, but I’m not sure if this qualifies as a worthwhile business development strategy.
I’m open to the idea of partnering with someone who is more bsiness/marketing focused, although I’m not sure how to find people which might be interested.
It’s a niche product targeted at UX and Interaction designers. Similar to Balsamiq, Invision and UXPin which you might already be familiar with.
