Show Notes

Have you ever wondered what it takes to launch a successful product on Product Hunt? Well, let me tell you about my experience with launching my own product, Podsqueeze. As the founder, I understand the importance of optimizing processes and conversion rates before launching on ProductHunt. In this podcast episode, I share my journey of scaling up my product and turning it into a proper company. 

Running a business comes with its own set of challenges, such as high costs for services. However, I am determined to expand into non-English speaking markets and have already developed a new feature for Podsqueeze.
