Here’s How To ‘Launch’ (Or Re-launch) Your Business In The Wedding Industry

A lot of wedding industry professionals, service providers, retailers and wholesalers ask me how on earth they could possibly do a Product Launch Formula style launch if:

  1. Their wedding business has been around for a while and there’s nothing new to ‘launch’
  2. Their products and services aren’t new, and they have no plans to upgrading or adding to them
  3. They don’t have the budget to include a bunch of additional incentives with their offer to increase it’s perceived value

If you supply goods and services to the wedding market and this is your problem, the secret is to come up with a launch (or actually, a re-launch) plan that includes what Jeff calls a Crushing Offer.

And you do that by adding one or more of these things to what you are currently offering…

  • ‘Premium’ version of your product or service that includes additional features the standard version doesn’t
  • A package that could include, depending on what you supply, things such as videos, printed reports, digital guides, checklists, a personal website, software and/or cheat sheets that show your customers how to get more out of their wedding when they choose your product or service over somebody else
  • Discount coupons for additional products or services you provide that enhance or complement the main product or service people are purchasing from you
  • Special offers and discount coupons from OTHER merchants in the wedding industry that give your customers a chance to get a discount or extra services, AND let the other merchants have a new customer referred to them as well

When you offer bonuses like this, it makes it much easier for people to see how much extra value you provide, which can increase the number of people who choose you over any of your competitors.

Let’s look at a quick example

Say you supply Wedding Gowns and you’d like to run a product launch to generate a burst of sales during your slow season.

NOTE: Using a launch like this is a great way to pre-sell a bunch of wedding gowns well before they are required, so you can take a large deposit up-front, have plenty of time to create the gowns, and importantly, lock the customer in so they don’t go elsewhere.

You could approach all of the wedding businesses on the list below and ask them to give you coupons for discounted/free stuff in exchange for you reciprocating and helping them to promote their products and services to your customers as well:

  • Artificial Flowers
  • Beauty Therapists
  • Bomboniere
  • Bridal Accessories
  • Bridal Expos
  • Bridal Gown Boutiques
  • Bridal Lingerie
  • Bridal Shoes
  • Bridesmaids Gowns
  • Cake Designers
  • Celebrants
  • Ceremony Music
  • Ceremony Venues
  • Clubs for Receptions
  • Gown Designers
  • Disc Jockeys
  • Dried Flowers
  • Entertainment Agents
  • Florists
  • Function Centres
  • Grooms Fashion
  • Grooms Shoes
  • Hairdressers
  • Hens and Bucks Parties
  • Hire Equipment Suppliers
  • Honeymoon Destinations
  • Hotels
  • Caterers
  • Jewellers
  • Live Entertainers
  • Make Up Artists
  • Master of Ceremonies
  • Photo Booths
  • Photographers
  • Reception Centres
  • Resorts
  • Restaurants
  • Stationary Suppliers
  • Wedding Transport and Limos
  • Travel Agents
  • Wedding Videographers
  • Wedding Stylists

As you can see from this list, there are plenty of different businesses you could approach to work with.

Oh, and EVERY ONE of these businesses could become your Launch (and ongoing) Joint Venture partner.

That means you could have them sending your pre-launch content to their email subscribers and sharing it on their social media pages. And you could pay them a referral fee for each wedding gown you sell.

PLUS, EVERY single business above can do the same thing with all of the other suppliers on the list.

You are only limited by your ability to work collaboratively with your fellow wedding industry business owners and create win-win deals…

You could run a product launch like this 3 or 4 times a year, and promote the products and services of your Joint Venture partner’s businesses during the other months.

Can you see the potential of this for your wedding industry business?

How To Create A Crushing Offer For Your Product Launch Formula Launch

The easiest way to make sure your product launch is a hit with your customers is to go all out and create what Jeff Walker calls a Crushing Offer.

So what is a Crushing Offer?

Here’s what Jeff says about it in his Product Launch Formula Mind Map

1 – Create an offer so strong it’s almost impossible to refuse. In other words, people would feel like an idiot for not taking you up on it.

2 – Give people what they want, because it makes everything a LOT easier for you

3 – Identify and answer objections during your launch content and forget about using any kind of “hard sell”

The idea is to make your launch offer so compelling that it’s easier for people to say yes than it is to say no.

The thing you’re launching should give your new customers everything they want to solve a problem they’ve told you they have, or achieve an outcome they told you they wanted to achieve.

And as you’ll recall, you learned how to find out exactly what they want by surveying them both BEFORE you started your Seed Launch, and then each week as you rolled out your Seed Launch to get feedback and gauge how your students were going.

That way you know your potential customers are going to be salivating over the prospect of getting their hands on your awesome new product as soon as you release it.

As Jeff says, rather than overwhelming people with a bunch of stuff in an effort to give your product a ‘Thud Factor’, when you find out exactly what people want to buy, and you make them an irresistible offer for it, you don’t have to ‘sell’ them on buying.

They naturally want to give you money to get the solution you KNOW they are after because they told you what it was.

How cool is that?

Understanding The Strategy Behind Product Launch Formula

The beautiful thing about using a product launch, instead of doing what most businesses do which is try to grow one customer at a time, is you stop using what Jeff Walker calls ‘Hope Marketing’…

… and start using a proven system for generating a bunch of new leads (people who you can market to later on if they don’t buy straight away) and sales (which give you money to spend and use to grow your business now).

The way you’ll be doing that is to create a structured sequence of pre-launch content (which ideally should be in the form of videos with accompanying PDF documents, but it doesn’t have to be) that teaches people a number of valuable techniques or insights that:

  • Give them actionable strategies they can use and benefit from immediately (you’re giving people results in advance)
  • Position you as an expert who can help them to solve their problems or achieve their goals (so they see you as the only person who can help them)
  • Build anticipation for the product or service you have coming so people are standing in line waiting to buy from you when you open the shopping cart
  • Allow you to sell in a non-slimey, non-hyped way, that is extremely effective (so you are authentic, and don’t come off as a typical online marketing get-rich-quick ‘huckster’ or used car salesman)

When you combine this process with a Crushing Offer that makes it easier for people to say yes to buying from you instead of no, you could literally make more sales in a week than you usually make all month (or even all year if you run a JV launch).

How To Do A Seed Launch Step By Step

As Jeff Walker teaches in his Product Launch Formula training, the first launch you should do if you don’t have a list or a product is a Seed Launch.

The Seed Launch is AWESOME if:

  • You’re just starting out and you don’t have a list or product.
  • You’ve got an existing business and you want to test out a new idea.
  • You want to get paid before you actually create the product.
  • You’re a “perfectionist” and you’re having a hard time ever finishing your products.

Here are the quick steps you’ll be taking in your Seed Launch

Step 1: Gather your initial Seed list

Start to gather a small Seed List with a simple squeeze page to collect email addresses in exchange for a Lead Magnet or some premium content

Send a personal email to everybody you know telling them you are starting a newsletter on ______ topic,and asking them if they’d like to receive it.

Publish or post ideas related to your topic on social media channels including groups related to your niche market.

Once you’ve gathered 100 email addresses, continue to Step 2.

Step 2: Put together a simplified Sideways Sales Letter

See video 1 in this series if you need a refresher on the Sideways Sales Letter.

Your simplified Sideways Sales Letter doesn’t have to be fancy, and it doesn’t have to be video… it can be a series of emails or social media posts.

Make an offer for a series of 3-7 group coaching calls where you deliver your content on a one-to-many format.

Step 3: Deliver your content over a series of webinars or teleseminars

Split your topic area into a series of sub-topics, and teach one for each call.

Before the first call, send out a super-short survey to find out the top questions on that sub-topic so you know what your students want to know the most.

Use the survey responses to plan what you need to cover on the first call.

Repeat the surveys after each call asking what additional questions they have on the upcoming sub-topic. Use the questions to plan the call.

Record everything, get it transcribed, and package your recordings and transcripts into a product.

Then you’re ready to do an Internal Launch to the people on your email database who didn’t participate in your Seed Launch training.

How To Start With A Seed Launch & Grow Your Business From There

The very first product launch I did in 2008 was a Seed Launch’, which as you’ll recall is Step 2 in our 5 Steps To A 6 Figure Product Launch process:

Product Launch Formula - Seed Launch

At the time, I had been selling all different products as an affiliate, with one in particular bringing in around 80% of my income.

The Seed Launch was to create a multi-week coaching program to help people who purchased that affiliate product get better results, and I had around 40 students who paid $37 each go through the launch with me.

So I made the princely sum of $1480 (less payment processing fees) for 4 weeks of ‘work’ which worked out to be a total of around 10 hours.

Not really a big deal.

But here’s the thing…

Having that completed product enabled me to give it away as a bonus to EVERY person who purchased the affiliate product through my link.

And that (along with a small amount of personal email coaching) helped me to make thousands of dollars in commissions every single month for more than 5 years…

…until the merchant changed their affiliate program rules and killed the thing dead (there’s a long, sad story of ineptitude and stupidity on their part; I’ll tell you about that another day…).

So that’s one way to use a Seed Launch, but there are lots of others.

Talk soon,

Rocky

How To Raise Your Prices Regardless Of Your Competition

The beautiful thing about holding a product launch (even if your product or service itself is not actually ‘new’), is that because of the way your launch becomes an event (instead of merely a promotion), you can significantly raise your prices.

That’s because by giving away tremendous value through your pre-launch content, adding a range of bonuses to also increase value, and positioning your product or service as the obvious choice to solve the problem your prospects have, you are demonstrating the value you are offering in exchange for their money.

I’ve seen products that originally sold for $197 or $297 being sold for $997 or even $1997 through a product launch.

Are the people buying at the higher price being ripped off?

Occasionally, but the fact is if you can prove the your product or service offers much more value than the price, you’re sweet.

Also, the previous price may have been artificially low as a way of getting customers quickly, or because it contained less, or was not as high a quality, or a whole host of other reasons.

The thing is, most people NEVER buy based on price.

They buy based on VALUE.

If you can position your product or service as offering superior value than your competitors’, then you win.

And one of the easiest ways to present this additional value is to create a product launch. You can learn how to do that by watching this video.

5 Ways You Can Create A Product To Launch In 60 Minutes Or Less

Product Launch Formula StrategiesCreating an irresistible offer for an inexpensive front-end product is a great way to build a database of buyers, who you can then launch your core product to, and sell additional products and services to over and over again in the future.

Because of the advertising and marketing costs of generating new customers, the real profits in any business are in the backend, or the future or followup sales you make to those customers once they’ve purchased from you the first time, rather than the first sale you make to a new customer.

The problem a lot of people tell me they have is that they’d love to be able to use a product launch to release a new front end product, but they don’t have any idea about how to quickly create a digital product to release.

To give you some some ideas for quickly creating new products you can promote to your existing customers, here are five ways you can do it in 60 minutes or less…

1. Record a phone interview. Just ask a colleague in your niche to be a guest expert for about 30-45 minutes. Record the interview, have it transcribed, edit the audio, package it all up and sell it. This takes one hour or less!

Tip: Alternatively, you have someone interview you. Or you can simply create an audio book.

1a. A variation on this is to find an expert on a topic you’d like to create a product on, and interview them. Have the interview transcribed and sell it to your customers and the other expert’s customers, and split the proceeds 50/50.

2. Create a report using a speech recognition software (like Dragon Naturally Speaking.)

Outline a report, talk about it for 30 to 45 minutes and then edit it (or have an outsourcer edit it for you) as needed. Bam, your text report is finished.

3. Use PLR (private label rights) content to create an ebook. Tweak it and your product is ready in minutes.

You can buy PLR on any topic very inexpensively.

Now yes, some of it is crap, but you can get very good private label rights reports, guides, checklists, mind maps and other stuff, which means you don’t have to spend a lot of time and money creating it all yourself.

Something that holds so many people back is the time and effort it takes to create great products from scratch.

It’s a lot easier to simply make changes to existing content and make it your own than trying to start with a blank piece of paper or screen.

The money is in getting products finished and then SELLING them, NOT in spending weeks or months creating them yourself.

4. Repackage some of your existing products. If you have existing products that have sold in the past, you can create a bundle

Example: Combine multiple small reports to create a home study package and sell it for less than the combined cost of what all of the reports usually cost individually.

5. Outsource it. In one hour or less (with the time being spread out over several days), you can post a job on UpWork.com, evaluate freelancers, hire the best one and send out a brief.

Then sit back and let the freelancer take care of the rest!

Yes it costs you money up front, but it’s a one-time cost for something you can sell over and over again for months or years.

You are leveraging your time and money, creating a valuable asset that will not only make you money, but will help other people to solve a pressing problem they have been struggling with.

How To Create A Totally Irresistible Offer For Your Next Product Launch

Since I started doing product launches in 2007 (after grabbing Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Formula course), people have been asking me questions that basically boil down to this:

“I’m about to launch a new product (or service), but I’m not sure if I have created an offer that’s irresistible enough to convert. How can I improve my offer to make it irresistible, without spending a lot of time and money coming up with additional products or bonuses.”

Let’s use an example to demonstrate how you can do this easily and inexpensively.

Let’s say you’ve got a video training program that shows people how to launch their own product.

Your core program includes 10 videos that show how to find out what people want to buy, how to create the course content so it educates and inspires, how to create and implement a marketing system, and how to make sales of related products and services on the backend.

Now in the past, the goal has been to try to increase the value of a product by adding what they call ‘thud value’. That meant the more ‘stuff’ you included with your offer, the higher the perceived value you were offering.

And even now, a lot of people are tempted to throw in a range of additional, unrelated ‘bonus’ products or services, that while valuable in their own right, can distract your customers from the core outcome they are after, which is to launch a product or service of their own.

The problem is that these days, people have less time to go through all of that additional stuff. Most of us want to quickly learn shortcuts or ‘hacks’ we can use to get results fast.

So products with lots of moving parts, or that require a lot of time to consume or understand, are often seen as LESS valuable than products that help us get results quickly, with less time spent learning the ropes.

So to quickly increase the value of a product like this, without overwhelming your customers with irrelevant ‘stuff’ just because you are trying to add ‘thump value’, you should add components that complement the original, core training in some way.

Some product launch upgrade examples are:

  • Transcripts and MP3 Audios – Some people prefer to read or listen to audio files while they are working out or travelling, so giving people all three types of content (video, audio, and written) is a proven way to add value, without spending a lot of additional time or money. Just have somebody convert your videos to audio, and transcribe your audios into PDF documents, and you’re all set.
  • Checklists, Worksheets and Spreadsheets – Include these for each stage of the product launch process. Information is great, but when you add in “take action” tools to help people apply the information you are giving them, you are helping then achieve the result they are after more easily.
  • Mind Maps – Because not everyone thinks about information in a linear way, some people can grasp a complex concept easier if it’s presented in the form of a mind map or flow chart.
  • Personal Coaching – Including some type of personal or group coaching to help people when they get stuck has an incredibly high real and perceived value. This can be text-based coaching, such as via email, Skype or phone based. Or it can be group coaching via Webinars or Teleseminars.
  • Live Events – Live events have a very high perceived value and are a great way to bookend a high-ticket product. In other words, you could start your product delivery off with a live Seminar, or you could hold a live Seminar at the end of the program to give participants additional insights, help, advice and coaching.
  • A Private Mastermind Community – Including a private Facebook group where members can interact, chat, ask and answer questions and network together is a proven way to give your customers significantly more value.

By creating additional resources like this and including them as part of your product when you launch, you can substantially increase it’s value without overwhelming your new students with a bunch of extra, unnecessary content that distracts them from the critical path of achieving the results they are looking for.

Never Launch A Product Or Service If It Doesn’t Have This Critical Factor

Product Launch Formula USPBefore you use a product launch to release your next product or service, it’s very important that you take the time to develop a USP or a “unique selling proposition” for it so you can quickly differentiate what you are offering from everything else in the market.

A USP is short statement that tells your prospects how the product or service you are about to launch is different and better than anything your competitors are offering.

You have to explain to your potential customers why they should buy this product, over every other alternative available to them, including doing nothing.

Here are some factors around which you can base your USP:

  • A strong guarantee.
  • Superior durability.
  • Unsurpassed dependability.
  • The lowest price.
  • The highest price.
  • Customer service.
  • What you are offering is made or supplied in a special way.
  • You are specially qualified to offer the product or service in a way nobody else can.
  • Your business was first in it’s category or the first with this innovation.

And so on.

The point is, look for the benefits and results that appeal to your customers.

The critical question to ask yourself when coming up with your USP is this:

How will buying your product or service transform the lives of the people who buy it?

Example: The car rental company Enterprise has the USP, “We pick you up.”

There may be other rental companies that pick their customers up, but Enterprise was the first one to advertise the fact and use it as their USP.

And this USP is indeed a good reason for prospects to choose Enterprise over the other rental companies because it saves the user time and money, and it’s much mrs convenient for them.

I know of a Pet Care Facility that lets customers drop their pets off and any one of a number of local vet surgeries when they are going away, and they’ll pick up the pets in a specially fitted out “Pet Transfer Shuttle” at no cost to the pet owner.

They are the only company that does this in our local area, and even though they are fairly new, they are constantly booked out.

How could you develop a gold-standard USP for your next product launch that your competitors simply can’t compete with?

Why You Should Segment Your Optins BEFORE Your Product Launch

One of the easiest things you can do to make more sales during your next product launch is to segment your optins BEFORE they join your email database.

That way you can send very targeted email messages to each group, based on what they told you they were most interested in.

Here’s an example from a recent launch I participated in. You can see in the screen-shot below that people were segmented into three groups:

  1. I’ve never really used online marketing but I can see the value in it.
  2. I’ve played around with marketing online but haven’t fully committed to it.
  3. I use online marketing but am not getting the results I want.

Product Launch Lead Segmentation

This segmenting process allows you to send people to THE SAME launch content, but change the context they see that content in.

As an example, you can use an email message to introduce the first pre-product-launch video to people who have never used online marketing (Group 1) by saying:

In your first video, you’ll see how powerful online marketing for your business, and why you really can’t ignore the opportunity it presents any longer. You can watch the video by visiting this page.

The email sequence for Groups 2 & 3 (people with some or lots of experience) would contain different messaging to reflect their experience and worldview.

This way, you can get maximum leverage from the same product launch content by talking to potential customers in a language that resonates with them.

I hope this helps you to see the potential of segmenting your prospects and customers into different groups based on their needs and experience.

The Single Biggest Product Launch Mistake (And How To Avoid It)

Product Launch Formula ReviewOne of the biggest mistakes business owners make before they launch a new product or service is not doing enough market research to find out what people truly want to buy.

That’s why the first rule for any Product Launch is this: Find Out What Your Customers REALLY Want

There’s simply no point in creating and launching a product that nobody wants to buy. Most business owners do at least some market research during the start up phase of their business.

But after that, it’s easy to get sidetracked. Sometimes many of us are in a hurry to get things out there, which means we launch products and services without ever really seeing if the market wants or needs them.

You see, some of the easiest money you’ll ever make is when you create or source products and services that hordes of people your market are ALREADY buying.

Then all you have to do is create a similar product (no copying or staling of course!) and put it in front of your prospects and customers. And the best way to do that is by using a product launch.

So how do you find out what your market is already buying?

There are a number of ways, but here’s two of the best:

Survey your existing prospects and customers and ask them what their biggest ________ problem is right now.  Just enter the type of market you serve where I’ve put __________ and ask them.

And when your people tell you what their biggest problems are, find the most pressing, or the one with the largest number of of people experiencing it, and then create or source and launch a product or service to serve that need.

The second way is to run a search in the Amazon.com marketplace for your general keyword (like “gardening”), and sort by “bestselling” products. If you see a few similar products dominating the first few pages of results, that’s a pretty good sign that the product is popular.

Bonus product launch tip: Another way to find out what’s hot is to follow the money.

Marketers don’t pour advertising dollars into products that aren’t selling. So look at pay per click ads on Google, ads in your local newspaper, ads in niche magazines, banner ads on big sites and similar paid advertisements to see what’s being sold.

Once you’ve found the perfect product or service idea based on what people in your market are clamouring to buy, create or source it and launch it to the starving crowd. And sit back and watch the money go into your bank account…

What You’ll Learn In Module 3 Of Product Launch Formula

In this Product Launch Strategy post, we’ll take a sneak peek inside Module 3 and see what you have to look forward to as you go through Jeff Walker’s new Product Launch Formula Training.

In Module 3, the training starts off by helping you create your Launch Story.

So what’s a Launch Story?

It’s the glue that holds your launch together, and gives your prospects some context around why you are launching your product, and how it’s going to help them to achieve the outcome you are promising.

In other words, it’s your ‘Reason Why’.

Why Do You Need A Reason Why For Your Launch?

And if you’ve followed Jeff Walker for any length of time, or if you know anything about marketing, you’ll know that having a Reason Why you are doing something is one of the most important aspects of your entire campaign.

By telling people the reason why you are doing anything, you’ll increase the number of people who take you seriously, who understand your real motives, and ultimately who buy from you.

Then we dig deep into creating your Pre-Launch content, which is what you’ll be sending people to warm them up for your offer. Your Pre-Launch content can come in the form of videos, PDF’s or even a series of email messages.

It depends on the market you are in, and the product you’ll be launching, but your Pre-Launch content should whet your prospect’s appetite for the product you are about to launch, and to help them take the first few steps towards the end solution your product provides to the user.

The content you give to your readers before your launch is so critical because it sets the ‘Frame’ and context for what is to come.

Get it right and your launch is a breeze.

Get it wrong and it’s hard to recover.

Product Launch Formula Review – The Seed Launch

The next step is understanding and creating a Seed Launch.

The Seed Launch is a small launch you do to find out exactly what product your market wants to buy, and then get paid to CREATE that ideal product for them.

It’s a very cool strategy, and honestly, it’s the best way to make products that you know are going to sell well. You can learn more about what’s involved in a Seed Launch here.

Now if you’d like to know more about how Jeff’s brand new training can help you to grow your business, or even start an entire new business from scratch, check out our Product Launch Formula Review.
