Slackmin - #1 on Product Hunt

We launched Slackmin on Product Hunt on July 27th, 2022. Here is the launch post and the product page on Product Hunt. We achieved the “#1 Product of the Day” badge. Thanks to all the supporters for the appreciation, critical suggestions, and love. We thought it will be great to share some launch day insights from Product Hunt and our own tracking solution.

I focus on understanding the WHY of each requirement. Once this is clear, then HOW becomes easy. In my blogs too, I try to take the same approach.
