Ronnie’s Top 3 Reasons Why Your Launches Fail:
- You don’t know the difference between launching and releasing
- You lack a detailed plan
- You fail to follow-up
You don’t know the difference between launching and releasing
There is a huge difference between releasing a product and launching a product. Releasing has minimum thought and effort. When you release a product you spend more time creating the product and less time on the actual marketing and sales ahead of time.
Launching requires planning ahead of the actual release of the product. It should feel like an event. You will feel exhausted after a product launch. The launch process takes lots of planning and mapping everything out. You should have an idea of what emails will be released before, during and after the launch. Take time to plan your entire marketing strategy. This eliminates room for error and potential mistakes.
You lack a detailed plan
As mentioned earlier planning is the key. The more you plan the better. During your planning session, you want to break down larger tasks into smaller chunks. This allows you to execute more in a timely manner. Take a step back and plan out your entire product launch. This gives you more time to promote, generate leads, and creates more exposure for your products.
Launch… optimize… and launch again.
Take what you’ve learned from previous launches and use this as a blueprint. Optimization is one of the most important parts of launching.
You fail to follow-up
There is money in follow-up. Just think about how much money you’re leaving on the table when you don’t take the time needed to follow up with potential customers. During your launch plans map out some time to create a follow-up email campaign.
After your webinar or live training don’t be afraid to pick up the phone and connect with your potential clients in order to close the sale. Follow-up. Don’t leave money on the table.
