A Billion Dollars In Product Launch Formula Launches?

Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Formula students have done over a billion dollars in sales with online launches… so when Jeff talks, it pays to listen.

He’s just announced that he will be hosting an awesome LIVE training – and it’s free as part of his upcoming Launch Masterclass.

You’ll learn what’s working NOW if you want to launch a new online course, virtually any product, a service of any kind… or even launch an entire business or a new division of your existing business.

And if you don’t already have a profitable online presence for your brick and mortar offline business, you can use what you learn to add one that’s profitable right out of the gate.

It’s going to be powerful training… and it will be 100% free:

The catch is the entire training is going to be delivered LIVE… so this is a time limited offer.

There will be recordings available, but only for a limited time, so you should head over to Jeff’s PLF Website to sign up and get registered now:

Your Product Launch Emails & Getting People To Click

One of the most important aspects of using the Product Launch Formula process to launch your product, service or business is being able to get people to read your messages and then click on the links in your product launch emails to visit your content.

The whole idea of using pre-launch content (referred to as PLC) is to share the story of your product and why people should ultimately buy from you is to move them from the email to your website where they can consume the content.

But what is the best way to encourage people to read your message and then click through? Here are the steps to achieving that:

Determine the Big Benefit First

Before you write a single word of your teaser, you need to figure out the big benefit of the content. Your reader is going to be thinking, “Why should I click on this link?” – and your teaser needs to answer that question.

Remember to Keep it Short

A teaser may be as short as one line, all the way to several paragraphs. You want to keep it short so that even the most time-pressed subscriber or the person with the shortest attention span will read and act on the teaser. You’ll get examples in just a few moments.

Hook the Reader

A good teaser captures and holds your readers’ interest, and often it arouses curiosity too. This starts with your email subject line, as it needs to be intriguing enough to get your audience to open your email. Then your short teaser needs to be intriguing enough to get readers to click on your link.

Create a Compelling Call to Action

Your reader is hooked, so you drop the link in the end of the email. But don’t assume they’ll click the link. Sure, some people will click on it. But in order to get the highest conversion rate, you need to specifically tell people to click the link and take the desired action.

Now let’s put all these tips to work with a few examples…

Pull It All Together: Examples

Here are a couple examples that show you how to create short, benefit-driven teasers with calls to action:

Example 1:

Let’s suppose you want people to click through to your PLC to learn about copywriting. Here’s an example teaser email…

____________

Subject line: The secret of million-dollar sales letters…

Hi [Name],

There’s one little thing that the world’s best copywriters do that no one else does (not even you). And this one little thing is what creates million-dollar sales letters.

What’s the secret? That’s what you’ll find out in today’s blog post. Read it here:

P.S. Some people say I should charge for this information. Maybe I will. But if you’re quick, you can read it now for free on my blog at:

[link to blog post]

_____________

This example presented a big benefit (learning how to create a million-dollar sales letter), and it aroused curiosity to get people to click through. The curiosity started in the subject line with the word “secret.” It continued in the body of the email by using the word “secret” again, and arousing curiosity about what that “one little thing” is that the best copywriters use.

Finally, this example also created a sense of urgency (which is one of the critical Mental Triggers Jeff teaches in PLF) at the end to get people to click the link now (rather than put it off for later). This works if the sense of urgency is genuine. In other words, don’t create “false” urgency just to get the click. Always be upfront and honest with your audience. As I like to say, offer HOPE, not hype.

Next…

Example 2:

Let’s suppose you’ve created a pre-launch video that shows beginners the easiest way to set up a blog. Here’s an example of what your teaser may look like:

____________

Subject line: Set up a blog in five minutes?

Hi [Name],

Every time someone talks about setting up a blog, they throw a lot of technical mumbo jumbo at you. It’s confusing and overwhelming, especially if you’re not a techie.

Forget all that – now you too can set up a blog fast and easy… in as little as five minutes from now.

P.S. It’s easier than you think. See for yourself by watching the free video now: [link]

___________

This example showcases the benefit that non-tech people really want – an EASY way to set up a blog. The email starts off by empathising with the reader, and then goes on to say there’s a fast and easy way to do it, and the reader can learn about it for free by clicking the link.

Conclusion

As you work through your Pre-pre-launch, Pre-launch and launch emails, there will be plenty of instances when you need to craft a teaser that gets people to click through to your Product Launch Content. Use the ideas and examples above to start creating more effective teasers that get your readers to click through to your launch content.

The Most Profitable Implementation Of Product Launch Formula I’ve Ever Seen

I can’t be sure, but I think we’ve just witnessed the most profitable use of the principles, strategies and tactics Jeff Walker teaches in Product Launch to make multi-millionaires or even billionaires of a group of company founders.

Overnight in the United States a new company called Snowflake was listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange. Nothing special or ground-breaking about that you might say. But the way the promoters attracted media attention and developed awareness in the community to the point where there was literally a feeding frenzy as shares went on sale today is a case study in what to do right and something we could all model on a smaller scale.

Here’s the back-story: Snowflake is a SaaS (Software as a Service) company that helps businesses move their brick and mortar and non-internet businesses to the ‘Cloud’. This is a mega-trend and any business in that space is being valued much more aggressively by the market than other types of businesses.

Bear in mind the company is apparently losing money hand-over-fist, has never made a profit, probably won’t make a profit for several years even if everything goes right for them, and according to some analysts was valued at around 100 times sales.

This is astonishingly expensive. Yes the company is growing strongly, but they also have huge competition from Amazon, Google, and many other behemoths with long track records of killing startup companies before they reach critical mass.

When the promoters issued the most recent batch of shares (which was just 10% of the company’s total available shares) they priced them at $120 each. Today as the stock listed they opened at $270 and traded as high as $316 before falling back to close at around $253.

Because the promoters and founders still hold 90% of the shares in the company, the high price of the shares listed on the market makes their shares much more valuable today than they were yesterday. I would imagine they are cracking the champaign corks at the moment.

I’m sure there were a lot of other things going on behind the scenes (just like any Product Launch) but here are some of the most obvious:

Their use of Mental Triggers

Jeff Walker discusses Mental Triggers at length in PLF. There are about a dozen of them that will move the needle in a launch. Here are the ones Snowflake used to create such wild success:

Social Proof – Commentators on CNBC have been excitedly discussing Snowflake for the last few weeks, talking about how many big and experienced investors the company already had on board and how these people wouldn’t have been interested if the company was a dud.

Authority – The company has the Worlds greatest value investor, Warren Buffet, as an early stage investor. By highlighting the fact Warren was a shareholder, they company use his authority to entice other investors to invest when the stock was listed today.

A Bargain – Warren Buffet is a ‘value investor’ which at it’s core means he doesn’t buy things that are overpriced. The fact he saw ‘value’ in Snowflake undoubtedly encouraged other big names to throw their hats into the ring. This is regardless of the fact the company is a Technology stock priced insanely high for anyone buying today. If Warren’s in, others want to be in too.

Scarcity – The fact that only 10% of the company’s shares were listed created immense scarcity. Most of the commentators on CNBC applied for shares but none of them were allocated any. This is additional proof of the scarcity of the shares. And everyone knows that when something is scarce it is more valuable.

Liking – The founders and senior promoters were regularly wheeled out by media organisations to discuss their plans for the company. The people interviewed kept saying all the right things and making all the right noises, so it was hard not to like them.

FOMO – Fear of missing out is a powerful motivator, especially when combined with genuine scarcity. The talking heads on the various media channels were relentlessly pushing the line that Snowflake was going to be the years biggest IPO (Initial Public Offering or Stock Market Listing) and it was the biggest software IPO EVER. The constant chatter whipped potential investors into a lather and their fear of missing out led the stock price to rocket right from the opening bell and say much higher than it might have without the help of those in the media.

These are just the obvious Mental Triggers Snowflake used with great effect to use the Product Launch Formula process to generate millions (billions?) of dollars in additional wealth for founders and employees overnight.

Of course there’s no guarantee any of us will ever do something like that, but the mental triggers combined with the other elements of the PLF process have worked for thousands of years, and will continue working in the future.

IF you’d like to see how the PLF process has worked for other entrepreneurs and business owners, you can do that by checking out these 60 Case Studies. By watching the ones that interest you, you’re probably going to have some ‘ah-ha’ moments of your own.

So check out the Product Launch Formula Case Studies page here and let me know what insights you had while watching other people using the process in their businesses.
