In a competitive tech industry, it’s important to regularly scan the lay of the land to spot trends and stay a step ahead of your rivals. Reading Product Hunt can help you scope out the latest launches in your space so you don't fall behind, but manually reviewing the website on a regular basis can seriously drain your time and energy.

We ran into this very problem at MonkeyLearn, and after finding ourselves checking Product Hunt for the millionth time, we decided to make our own personalized notification system for Product Hunt posts related to our interests.

This Zapier integration uses Product Hunt and MonkeyLearn to automatically trigger Slack direct messages from new Product Hunt updates that are relevant to our interests.

How it works

  1. Product Hunt posts a new product.
  2. MonkeyLearn classifies the Product Hunt taglines as related to your topics of interest or not relevant.
  3. Zapier checks the data from MonkeyLearn and only allows the workflow to continue if the Product Hunt taglines are related to your specified topics.
  4. A direct message (DM) notification is sent via Slack for Product Hunt posts about your topics.
