The No-Stress Guide to Launching a Product or Service for the First Time

Woman with paper airplane getting ready to launch

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.

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

Think of your new product launch as a “first draft” and keep it simple so you can get your new offer out intothe 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. 🙂
