Product Hunt Week
Month of May posts with HIGHSCORE mentioned in it
  • 😇 I’m super happy about how the Product Hunt launch turned out. Huge thanks to everyone for the support and I feel grateful for the same. It gave me a boost to prepare properly for the next launch
  • ✍️ Started writing posts on and its driving traffic after the Product Hunt launch. (I’m actually surprised by this. Not sure about the conversion but already got around 2K views for very short three posts) This feels like a long term strategy
  • 💲 Someone mentioned that I might want to increase the HIGHSCORE PRO Early Customer plan. Especially because it’s an early plan. What do you think?
  • 👨‍🔬 I’m still not satisfied with the Domain Hunt page. If you have unused domains that potentially want to sell to others or just want to showcase your product, it’s not super clear from the Domain Hunt page what it is about. I think it’s causing confusion. I’ll try to give an update on this on the next issue. Please do let me know if you have any thoughts or ideas on this. Replying to this email should work.
See you on soon, have a great week ahead, bye 👋
