Ryan Hoover

Founder, Product Hunt.

Believes there are 10 tactics to help you grow a community around your creation.

Thinks a great way to launch a startup is through email because it forces focus and allows you to validate ideas quickly.

“Build a product people want and clearly communicate what it does. Far too many makers invest their time building before validating assumptions.”

Believes not everything needs to be a business and it’s good to remember it’s ok to just build something for yourself.

Thinks blogging is the new resume.

When you look back at yourself six months from today and don’t feel embarrassed by your naiveté, there’s a problem. That means you’re not learning, growing.

Believes it’s important to avoid the trap of “fake progress.”

Thinks there are nine ways to get 100,000 people to use your product including targeting influencers, making it useful to the first users you have, and listening to early adopters.
