How to plan for a product launch?

There are several stages to product launching and each plays an important role in determining the success of the project.

Start by paying attention to users’ needs 

Your product will be successful if it answers a target’s needs or wants, simple as that. Because of this key factor, you have to keep your finger on the pulse and know what people want.

Look into your competition, research your targets, build customer personas and create a storyline around your product. Build a marketing team and message to accompany your product.

Create a product launch checklist 

Product launching is a stressful and fast-paced endeavor, so we suggest you create a launch checklist to keep track of the preparation items you have completed.

Every launch will have its own needs but you can usually follow a pattern to set you up for a successful launch.

  1. Research the market and identify your target
  2. Create a brand/product identity
  3. Establish goals and KPIs
  4. Test, test, test
  5. Build your marketing strategy
  6. Prepare your sales, technical and support teams
  7. Launch!

Build a community 

Get people excited about your product before you even launch by building a community.

If you have an established brand you need to create anticipation about the new introduction.

For new brands, you need to tell your story and get friends, family, and your network to share your name and project.

Release early and improve on the go 

Get ahead of the competition and start collecting real feedback from your users to improve. Do not stall in the testing stage as you can lose precious time and get beaten to the punch by a very similar product.

Good luck with your launch!
