Launches can be overwhelming. We know! At Silicon Beach Academy we do them A LOT.
So how can you prepare?
Here’s a checklist to help you get started!
Your Launch Recipe, Roughly in Order
4 – 12 weeks from Launch
• Set up your private beta, if you plan to do one.
• Take customer feedback & churn, churn, churn! Don’t have to do everything they ask, however, but keep in
friendly contact! Update them on what you’re doing.
2 – 6 weeks from Launch
• Create and put online a Coming Soon page. It can be as simple as some text and an email form. Tell the Pain Story.
Ask people to sign up for the list for more information.
• Start talking about your customer’s pain & money. Explain why you’re working on something. Use every bullhorn
you have at your disposal, even if you don’t think your Twitter followers/blog readers/book club are your audience.
• Share sneak peeks screenshots, content, or results, at least once a week. Again, unless your blog is about
daycare and your product is about tantric sex, do not worry about audience mismatch.
• Ask people to join the mailing list every time. This is part of your announcement, every sneak peek.
1 – 2 weeks from Launch
• Announce your launch date. Give people an idea of what to expect and when. Pimp your list.
• Write your beta testers/readers/early adopters. Thank them. Tell them you are launching soon, and ask if they
have anything they’d say to potential customers. Reward them with free stuff.
• Put your product online. Test it. Try the purchasing process. Get your friends to test it. Ask your beta testers to try
it again, too. Don’t announce yet. Let it sit a couple of days.
• Write and send out three announcement emails. Also tweet, blog, etc, anything you can do. Tell the Pain, Dream,
and Reason stories! Don’t say “We launched!”, say “You know that pain? Let us help you solve it.”
