Once you have access to comment, be the first commenting on your listing saying you’re the founder of your app and you’d be happy replying and listening to any question or feedback people have, like Derek from Knowtify did.
If whilst you’re getting access to comment, someone says something about your product, that’s an amazing opportunity to work on a remarkable reply that will catch other people’s attention.
For example, in our case, someone wrote a critic about our marketing video but we still didn’t have access to reply there. So we filmed a video like this, and posted on the comments once we got that access. I believe plenty of our upvotes came through that reply.
2. Share your listing
Let your users know you’ve been listed and that they can upvote you if they genuinely love your product.
Start with the basics, and share where you already are (Facebook, Twitter, G+,…). Bear in mind shares with images normally rank better and have better click through on those social networks. Make a screenshot of your listing and attach it to your updates. Also make sure you are sharing your PH listing URL, and not Product Hunt’s homepage (i.e http://www.producthunt.com/posts/videolean)
If you use a newsletter app (Mailchimp, Awebber, etc.), why not reaching out your database with such a great news?
Disclosure: this doesn’t mean you should offer any discount or whatsoever for upvoting you. Product Hunt guidelines say you should not incentivize people for upvoting your product.
3. Email outreach
What a better excuse to follow-up a potential partner you don’t talk with since ages ago than saying you’ve been featured in one of the trendiest startup directories?
Drop them a line saying you’ve been listed on Product Hunt and if there is any chance to resume your last conversation. Worst case scenario, you don’t get an upvote but at least you move on in something that makes you a sustainable business - sales.
Other way can happen as well. Received a congratulations email from Derek from Knowtify, actually.
Have you been featured on Product Hunt? Feel free to comment below how you did promote it.
Unfortunately we are not able to comment there yet, so wanted to give you a proper explanation through this video.
Why our marketing video is not done with our software (yet)?
Well, we come from Meideistudio and Motion4Startups - both creative agencies where we create videos from the scratch to be used as traditional advertising and online videos.
Two years ago, when we ran Videolean, thought why not taking advantage of all of that equipment and talent we had together and produce a high-end video that will help us to stand out from our competitors.
A lot has happened since then and nowadays we could make our marketing video a template on Videolean gallery. So thanks for the suggestion!
In the early days we were reaching out bloggers like Alex Barrera - one of the most famous bloggers in Spain and in Europe, creating marketing videos for them with our template videos.
Although we’ve designed the tool in order to be the easiest solution in the market to create videos with a professional end result - even though if you’ve never done any video before, this means having the person really involved with the brand looking for photos and typing texts that will lead him to the perfect video and becoming into the contest winner.
Benefits for Mauro Icardi #MI9 brand
Was it really beneficial to Icardi?
Firstly, we better define what “beneficial” for Icardi means. His objective was to increase his audience and, specially, spread out his personal brand “#MI9”.
Secondly, although Icardi would promote the campaign from his Facebook and Twitter profiles, would be this first the most valuable because there is where videos would be published and votes counted.
With this challenge ahead, Videolean gathered the data powered by Welovroi, which showed the following at the end of the campaign:

In the past 2 months Google made big changes to its search results. Webmasters saw lost both authorship photos and video snippets. Here at Moz, we’ve closely monitored our traffic to our own URLs to measure the effect of these changes on our actual traffic. The results surprised us.
Google+ Authorship Pictures Dropped Tears have been shed. Voices have been raised. Keyboards have been pounded. Our beloved Google+ authorship pictures and circle counts were dropped in the Google SERPS this last week. Google’s own John Mueller announced that they have been working to clean up the design in order to create a better mobile […]
Google may have removed authorship snippets but video thumbnails are still prominently displayed in the the SERPS.
Research shows that 17% of users spend less than 4 seconds on a website but are willing to spend almost 3 minutes watching an online video.
