The 3 Stages of a Stress-Free First-Time Product Launch Plan

When most people think of their product launch plan, they think in terms of the first definition in the Merriam-Webster dictionary:

Launch: to throw forward, hurl.

In this article, though, I’m digging deep into the definition of the word and highlighting a completely different approach.

Launch: to put into operation or set in motion, initiate.

I’m about to show you a very simple sample launch plan you can follow.

Because your first launch of a new product is all about setting things in motion. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

Planning a product launch? Think of your new product launch as a “first draft” and keep it simple so you can get your new offer out into the world.

What is a product launch?

A product launch is a moment in time when you put your offer — your product or service — in front of an audience of prospective buyers.

It’s also an event!

The best product launches feel like a party. You let people know about your launch in advance to build anticipation. And you have a memorable time while it’s happening.

And … truth be told … you’re a little bit exhausted once it’s done. Just like when you throw a great party.

More on how to avoid total exhaustion in a moment. 🙂
