Every day, new businesses sprout up all across the globe.
It’s no wonder. “Entrepreneur” as a job title has a nice ring to it.
But, the honest truth is that most businesses fail within a few years.
It’s hard to find sustainable success with more than 12 million ecommerce stores around.
There’s so much competition. And too many stores selling similar products and services.
But, that doesn’t mean you can’t make it work and take your own piece of the business-owner pie. It just means you have to use different channels and methods to grow your business.
And you can’t rely on word of mouth or a single viral video to sustain your business for the next 20 years.
You have to differentiate yourself in a unique way that communicates more value than your competitor.
Fortunately, platforms like Product Hunt exist and allow you to jumpstart your business fast.
That’s exactly what Startup Drugz, an ecommerce t-shirt business, did.
They used the Product Hunt platform to bring in 35,000 unique visitors just one week after launching their product.
Within two years, they were on their way to celebrating a pretty big milestone: Becoming a million-dollar business.
What’s even more remarkable is how they were able to take their t-shirt selling business and set themselves apart from the millions of other online t-shirt shops.
Here’s some background on Product Hunt, how Startup Drugz used it to grow their business. And how you can use it to grow your own company.
