Product Launch

Making a Product Launch Rock with Results
Home / Make Your Next Product Launch Rock

To ‘Rock’ a Product Launch – is to have the Products sell-in and sell-through!

Strategy …to make the glitz support the sell-in and sell-through

A Marketing Manager once said to me “ our job is to launch the Product, it is ‘Sales’ job to sell it” … nothing could be further from reality!!

The challenge is to ensure every aspect of the Launch is directed at the outcome. So often way too much info is covered during the launch which results in the water-being-muddied, so to speak … absolute clarity of purpose is the key, so that each person knows exactly what they need to do and how.

Methodology …defining where the Product needs to ‘live’ in the minds of the audience

Getting people’s mind-time in today’s world is one of the biggest obstacles … Shifting their Thinking and Inspiring them to take Action becomes the next step. So every component has to be appropriately ‘flavoured’, from invitation, to the vital sequence of the info, to the way it is linked and cemented.

Unfortunately, often times the Marketing Dept have become way too close to the Product as they have lived-it for maybe a year or so … and sometimes they are not fully aware of the sell-in and sell-through nuances that will need to be addressed, but they get the job to completely construct the Product Release.

Enter the independent catalyst who can take an outsiders view to the challenges of having the message bought by all.

Execution …using the unique expertise of an independent Facilitator & Catalyst

The Audience are always slightly resistant to the glitz and feel that the Presenters are there primarily to satisfy their agenda … they inadvertently develop a them-and-us mode. The secret is to massage the messages to reflect that there is a WIN to be had for ALL, when they take-up their part in the Product Program.

However, the absolute secret is to control the outcomes immediately after the launch – one of disciplined Actions not warm fuzzies !

Ensuring success and preventing failure, requires a dedicated and often ‘clever’ follow-up plan to encourage and  inspire take-up and implementation by ALL parties … enter the Independent Catalyst again !
