I’ve helped numerous startups with product launches. As a startup founder myself, I’m currently in the process of setting up our analytics and gearing towards a launch. If you’ve got a new startup or a new feature, I can help you plan a big launch.

I’ve done dozens of product launches. If you’re looking for advice on how to successfully launch your new product/feature for an existing user base and attract new customers through platforms like Product Hunt or do a Lifetime deal, I’m happy to help.

“Harri is a very thoughtful, carrying mentor who is eager to provide value to his mentees. I received some important recommendations that made me reconsider my objectives; also, I felt really supported and listened to through the conversation. I would recommend Harri to anyone who is launching a company and needs some guidance on bootstrapping, product market fit and business model.”

Jonathan has a deep understanding of product development. I love chatting about product stuff with him. I wanted his expert advice on my new positioning and product concept. I got much clearer after chatting with him. Definitely book him to talk about your product.

Why talk to a product launch expert?

You’re launching your product, yay! 🎉

Exciting times for sure, but your product launch is also a major acquisition opportunity, and way too many people squander it because they don’t have a launch strategy in place.

Speaking to other marketers and founders that have first-hand experience launching products can help you avoid some of the common product launch mistakes people make.

Mistakes like:

  • Launching too quickly on Product Hunt
  • Underestimating the leverage of a lowkey shadow launch
  • Not building a pre-launch email list
  • Over-promising and under-delivering
  • Having unrealistic expectations

On GrowthMentor, you’ll get direct 1:1 access to product launch experts that would be happy to mentor you.

Your product launch strategy is critical.

Frequently asked questions

Have a question you don't see here? Ask us on live chat!

We have a very detailed filter system for you to sort the mentors. Filters like areas of expertise, tools, language, price and industry.

Members can also post a help request and have mentors apply to help if they feel they are a good fit.

Then the third option is to just ask us! Give it a try right now and ask us on live chat 🙂

Three choices:

  • Skype
  • Zoom
  • Google Hangouts

Mentors and mentees are able to set their communication tools in their profile settings.

It is a good idea to connect with the other person once the session is accepted and the details are given. This ensures that the correct details were given and when it is time to start, you can start on time.

Here are some tips on how to get the maximum bang for your time on growth mentor calls.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be cool with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as honest as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax. There’s no right/wrong way to do this. Avoid binary thinking.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors. Pay attention to metadata.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to play devil’s advocate and challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly and authentic. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Yup! Many of the mentors offer monthly coaching packages for members who want to really dive deep into a specific area.

Each mentor creates their own package so what they offer and the price vary from mentor to mentor. You can find their coaching info at the top of their profile.
