GoPinLeads is Going Places!

July has been an amazing month for GPL!

We grew by 9x and onboarded a ton of awesome new customers. ????

This is our chance to say a massive “thanks” to the community – none of this would be possible without you. ????

To show our progress and where we’re heading, we put together an extensive roadmap for all of you to keep an eye on.

Today, we have completed half of the changes (11 out of 23) as highlighted in the roadmap! This is fantastic progress – we are absolutely pumped! ????

Our aim is to make as many changes live as quickly as possible. As always, we’re looking forward to your feedback and comments. ???? It’s what helps us stay on track and give you the service you deserve!

If you haven’t noticed the change in your Chrome extension (which generally takes 24 hours), you can quickly update it yourself.

  1. Sign up and register using email address (as opposed to just social media accounts)
  2. Provide all users with the option to view the document in Google Docs and Excel.
  3. A few changes to improve the onboarding process when a new user first installs and uses GoPinLead.
  4. Add information about 3 tabs within the Excel sheet – wireframes
  5. Replace the term ‘Venues’ with ‘Businesses’ – wireframes
  6. Add a warning in the search: “Export the same results or emails or leads multiple time, each export eats your credits.” –  wireframes
  7. Make sure that once the user has logged in, they remain logged in.
  8. BUG – Allow users to log out of their social media accounts and login with a different account, especially for the web app.
  9. Within the AppSumo credits /200 (image) is confusing to users. Find a more logical way to display the credits to the user.
  10. Add Instagram and YouTube details alongside LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook in the Venues / Businesses tab.
  11. Make tab 2 (of the Excel sheet) more meaningful i.e. include company name, (website), first name, last name, job title, (LinkedIn, email), company phone number, address, and website.
  12. Change the profile images of leads in the extension to their initials. (image)

Hello, GoPinLeads Amphi

Goodman Lantern has been in the lead generation business for 4 years.

In 2016, we were approached by a Global lifestyle brand who asked us to produce a list of all the gyms in US, UK, India and Australia.

We needed to conduct our research state-by-state and develop a list that included company names, employees, social media links, phone numbers, and more.

Using a team of 5 qualified researchers, we completed the task manually over a 3-month period.

Now, just two short years later, we are able to complete the same task in under 35 seconds.

We’ve harnessed the power of AI to automate a time-consuming task, reducing months worth of work into a few short clicks.

In December 2016, armed with our knowledge of software development and Artificial Intelligence, we had a major breakthrough. We’ve been working on improving our product ever since.

We started with GoPinLeads Chrome extension, which allows customers to find local leads of their prospective customers. The extension harvests their address, phone numbers, social media accounts, employee names, job titles, Linkedin profile, and email addresses.

10 reasons why you should (or should not) use ProductHunt’s Ship

Launching a new product on Product Hunt’s Ship?

Here are the top 10 reviews I received when I asked the question on a few Facebook groups.

Thought I’d share it with others who might find it helpful.

Thanks everyone who helped me with making a decision. FYI: I just signed up.

(Probably the most comprehensive answer came from Kaloyan Yankulov – no. 10)

Galina Divakova If your product is relevant to community, it might be worth it. We collected 300 emails when using it.
Nichole Elizabeth DeMeré using it for my book but haven’t fully taken advantage of everything you can do on it, so I don’t feel I have a lot of feedback to share yet. I do however feel like it’s super useful for pre-launch initiatives, and pre-launch IMO is everything.


Omer Molad Helped us build momentum when we launched our expert community, and really turbocharged our assessment library.
Joshua Bradley I have used Ship – the tools are pretty solid along with some good messaging options, including importing your own lists. Perhaps the most valuable feature when paid for is being able to schedule your launch on PH


Arthur Tkachenko it works if you have a community. also great idea to save time and don’t set up another landing page.
Saravana Kumar we are using Ship, the promoted upcoming page is quite useful. Even though the impact is not exactly like PH launch, it’s there and we see few signups here and there. The other advantage I see is when someone subscribes you can see the number of followers for them in PH, this will help to build the relationship and when you are launching you can reach out to them.


Annie Gherini We are using it right now at Affinity. So far it has been great. Helps you get everything ready for the upcoming launch. The team has been super helpful too.
Alexey Chernikov Yes, used, and I would say yes, it’s worth paying for as long as you’re planning to work with your community closely. Pro plan offers you a very useful Survey tool to collect & validate data from your subscribers.


Bruce Kraft Jr. Ship opens possibilities. But if you don’t have an infrastructure in place to maximize on ship, you’ll just get lost in the “upcoming” crowd
Kaloyan Yankulov I see a lot of positive comments and reviews here, so here is the contrarian position about Ship. While we love ProductHunt, Ship wasn’t really up to par with the usual spirit and standards of the platform.


Here are a few things that you should consider before paying:
Getting listed in the Upcoming directory takes longer than you would expect. You can’t be certain when exactly the guys will publish your listing, which makes marketing preparation and planning difficult. I appreciate the PH team is reviewing every product manually, but usually, when you pay a premium, you expect to be up and running quickly. (Only Pro and Super Pro Ship subscribers get listed on Upcoming)


As Bruce mentioned, unless you have the marketing system in place, you’ll just get lost. I.e., don’t rely on Ship to get subscribers organically. I see most of the positive reviews are from Ship beta users. Maybe back then there was more organic exposure, but it seems now it’s just another crowded channel and you should rely only on your own muscles to make it work.
When you look at Ship from a purely technical point for $79/mo you get:
– non-customizable basic landing page

– basic email service provider

– basic surveys and polls.


This set of features sounds reasonable at first, but when you draw the line, it’s much cheaper to use a full-fledged landing page/site builder (like Simvoly.com – $7/mo) + a robust email service provider (like ActiveCampaign – $29/mo) + GoogleForms/Typeform which are free. This is $36 in total for up to 1000 subscribers. For half the price of Ship, you get a solid stack of apps to do your pre-launch.

Even then you can still pre-launch on Product Hunt by regularly submitting a product with a “pre-launch” status.

Now where things got really ugly with Ship:
Since Ship wasn’t working out for us, 15 days into our Pro subscription we requested a cancellation. To our surprise, our monthly Pro plan was canceled, and with that, we lost all pro features, access to our subscribers and our place on the upcoming page.

On the planet I live on, a monthly subscription means a 30-day subscription. Apparently, it’s not so for PH — when we kindly asked to have our premium features back for the time we’ve been billed for PH rejected us.

This treatment doesn’t reflect the community values PH shares..at least in my books.

I love PH and will continue pre-launching products via the regular submission, but I won’t be using Ship in the near future.

Over the past 11 years, I've learned something new everyday

Raj Anand, Goodman Lantern

Over the past 11 years, I’ve learned something new everyday.

Over the past 11 years, I’ve learned something new everyday. Some days I’d find a great new tool, some days I’d learn a new technique. It’s important to me to keep up-to-date. Every business person needs to evolve with the pack or be left behind.

Over the past three years, a wave of new SaaS products have become available. It’s hard for newcomers to find the best ones. Often, there just isn’t time to familiarise yourself with all the options out there. I’ve managed to test a lot of them and find my favourites.

I’ve got some great videos that cover my 100 top tools that I’ve used on my way to 7-figure revenue. Check them out here and let me know what you think. https://goodmanlantern.com/seminar-videos
