- A launch is any event, normally ranging a week to 10 days, of a new product, service, or group program.
- Webinars or live classes give the potential buyer a connection with the seller.
- It is helpful for people to have 2 webinars scheduled, give people options for their schedules.
- 8-12 weeks of thinking about what people need to know to understand the value and thinking of objections that people might have.
- Having a team in place is incredibly helpful, try and have a budget for a virtual assistant.
- If possible, hire a copywriter/designer. It can be expensive but incredibly helpful.
- Facebook live is a great tool for connecting with your audience on a weekly basis.
- Telling people far in advance about a launch can help them plan their time and money around it.
- Set up incentives for people on a wait list to take action early for discounts and early access.
- Facebook ads done right can be incredibly successful, but start them early, not in the middle of a launch week.
- “Zoom” is a reliable software for doing video webinars, “Webinar Jam” is a simple and easy software for webinars. It is a good idea to use one and then have one set up as a back-up. If your software has an issue you do not want your entire webinar to be ruined.
- Three important team members to start off with are a virtual assistant, project manager, and graphic designer.
- If you can’t afford a project manager in the entire launch, hire a project planner to set up the launch project plan. An experienced project manager can see the holes in a plan before it’s put into place.
