On Saturday morning, I woke up to an email from Product Hunt saying that both Paper Website and Mailoji were golden Kitty finalists in their annual awards!
They've both been nominated in the "Product Demo Video" category, which is cool! I was really happy with the videos I created for them.
I think it's unlikely they'll win - they're up against a video from Mighty, which is incredible (it's who I would vote for otherwise!). But, despite chances being low, I decided to push hard and drum up support.
Voting closed in 48 hours, so even though it was a weekend and everyone was sensibly out having fun instead of being online - I deployed every marketing channel I had:
Twitter, Instagram and Email lists for both products, then my Twitter and email lists too - there's quite a lot now!
It felt a bit spammy, but it's a bucket list item of mine to take home a kitty, and having 2 products in the same category probably won't happen again, so I just went for it.
p.s. voting is still open here!: https://www.producthunt.com/golden-kitty-awards-2021/product-demo-video
