Let’s address the elephant in the room. You may not have launched yet because:
And for those of you who have tried launching in the past, only to get disappointing numbers, it feels even more hopeless. Failure hangs over your head every time you contemplate trying again.
But we know with about 80% accuracy, exactly what you are doing wrong and why it didn’t go well.
No. The fact of the matter is, the game of online marketing isn’t shrouded in secrecy. We don’t have some magic pill or bullet that others don’t.
We just have YEARS of experience with hundreds of customers to spot the most common patterns that accompany failed launches (or none at all).
We have a 6 Step Launching Process that we coach all of our Launch Gorgeous students through, and we are going to share this formula with you now:
Launch with uber confidence when you do one of two things in this phase:
A great offer is the difference between your head hitting the pillow the night before cart opens, dreaming of a flurry of payment notifications and laying awake incessantly worrying “is my offer good enough?”. (Trust us, you don’t want that.)
By the end of this step, you’ll have your offer, your unique selling proposition, and launch style dialed in.
Repeat after us…
“Never build your offer in a vacuum” —This is why 9 out of 10 launches fail.
Build a warm (hungry) audience a.k.a an email list of primed prospects who are engaged, excited, and can’t wait to devour your paid offers…instead of you launching to crickets or waking up to Zero payment notifications.
Do this right and you can look forward to celebratory champagne clinks instead of drinking to calm the PTSDs.
By the end of this step, you’ll be actively growing an audience so you can get in front of your ideal customers.
Naming, branding, writing…
Presentation matters. Start to build out the WOW… Craft your viral product name, write your compelling conversion-based copy, design the bundle of offer assets, and finally build out the cash-generating funnel.
By the end of this step, your entire offer will be outfitted with amazing branding + copy in impeccable detail.
Start spreading the news. You’ll build viral-worthy online buzz well in advance of your actual product launch. Use anticipation and pressure building strategies so you know exactly what to say (in your sales and marketing copy) and make your launch announcement with a bang.
The good news? You won’t need boatloads of cash, an Eiffel tower photoshoot, or the personality of a slick-oiled used car salesman to “pressure” your leads to buy.
Warning: If you do this right, this step will cause mass hysteria breakouts (read: a frenzy of signups on your waitlist page followed by conversions on your sales page)
By the end of this step, you will be engaging with your audience, building pressure, and getting people excited to buy. Most importantly, you’ll have your launch story – one of the most overlooked parts of launching.
Build a rock solid plan to deliver “the goods” in a timely (and non-overwhelming) manner.
Here’s the thing with failed launches: They’re either content heavy and marketing sparse or vice versa. For a successful launch, you’ll need the perfect balance of both.
In this step, you’ll map out exactly when and how to release each product with clockwork precision (and without losing your mind).
By the end of this step, you’ll be prepared to handle all the details of your launch week—and finish building the pieces you need to get your offer out the door!
Buckle your seatbelt…you’ve got all the pieces of your launch together and it’s time for blastoff! You will map out exactly what will happen during launch week—all the way down to frenzy-generating social media posts, high-converting emails, and memorable stories that hook the readers, pull at their heartstrings, and ethically charm them to open their wallets!
By the end of this step, you’ll have CUSTOMERS! Your launch will be blasted off and money will be coming in.
We know this works, because we’ve done it over and over—with repeatable success for ourselves and our customers.
The bottom line is, if we can take people with zero experience in launching, and have them completing a launch – full copy, design, ads, list building, publishing, and more… we can help you too.
