How To Create A Buying Frenzy During Your Product Launch

If you would like to create an all-out Buying Frenzy for your next product launch, using the product creation technique I am going to share in this post will help you to blow your sales out of the water.

This is something I wish I had learned 30 years ago when I was starting my marketing education. If there is just ONE thing you take away from reading this Guide is this:

If you just want to have a product launch that makes a few (or no) sales, then ignore what I am about to say.

But if you want to create a ‘buying frenzy’ with you launch and have raving fans recommending it to all their friends, then there is a way to systematically engineer that outcome.

So, how do you engineer a buying frenzy for your product?

Step #1 – Your Product Launch Must Solve An Urgent Present Problem

Think about the 3 most urgent ‘present problems’ your product offer is going to solve and rank them according to this formula”

Problem #1

How often does your ideal prospect think about finding a solution for this?

  • Every day = Your solution has a high value (+ 3 points)
  • Every week = Your solution has a medium value (+ 2 points)
  • Every month = Your solution has a low value (+ 1 point)
  • Less than once a month = not a priority (0 points)

How times a day does your ideal prospect think about finding a solution (mindshare)?

  • 3 times a day = Your solution has an extremely high value (+3 points)
  • 1 or 2 times a day = Your solution has a high value (+2 points)
  • Once a week = Your solution has a medium value (+2 points)
  • Once a month = not a priority (0 points)

What is the ‘emotional temperature’ of your ideal prospect when they think about this problem?

  • High fever = Your solution has an extremely high value (+3 points)
  • Warm fever = Your solution has a medium value (+2 points)
  • Low fever = Your solution has a low value (0 points)

Does your ideal prospect often talk about finding a solution for this problem?

  • Yes = Add 1 point
  • No = Add 0 points

How hard is it to find a solution for this problem?

  • Hard = Add 3 points
  • Medium = Add 2 points
  • Easy = Add 0 points

Step #2 – Calculate your Product Launch’s ‘Buying Frenzy’ Rating

What you are looking for is to launch a product that hits as many of the important factors listed above as possible.

Let’s look at an example:

Say you are thinking of creating a course to help small independent wineries attract people to their wine tastings. This is a something that would likely score very highly in the Buying Frenzy stakes because it is an urgent present problem for every winery if they want to make sales.

Here’s how this product would score…

How often does your ideal prospect think about finding a solution for this?

Every day = Your solution has a high value (+ 3 points)

How times a day does your ideal prospect think about finding a solution (mindshare)?

3 times a day = Your solution has an extremely high value (+3 points)

What is the ‘emotional temperature’ of your ideal prospect when they think about this problem?

High fever = Your solution has an extremely high value (+3 points)

Does your ideal prospect often talk about finding a solution for this problem?

Yes = Add 1 point

How hard is it to find a solution for this problem?

Hard = Add 3 points

To calculate the Buying Frenzy Score you just add the numbers together.

It looks like this:

  • They think about it every day (3 points)
  • They think about it 3 times a day (3 points)
  • They have a High Fever (3 points)
  • They often talk to people about the problem (1 point)
  • It has been very hard to find a solution (1 point)

This gives this product a Buying Frenzy Score of 11 points (the maximum possible)

Let’s compare that to another product idea –

Your proposed product will teach the owners of small independent wineries how to open a bottle of wine (yes I know that’s a stupid idea, but you would be surprised how many people come up with product ideas as lame and pointless as this and wonder why they can’t make sales).

Let’s run this idea through the Buying Frenzy Assessment:

How often does your ideal prospect think about finding a solution for this?

Never = Your solution has a low value (0 points)

How times a day does your ideal prospect think about finding a solution (mindshare)?

Never = Your solution has an low value (0 points)

What is the ‘emotional temperature’ of your ideal prospect when they think about this problem?

Low fever = Your solution has a low value (0 points)

Does your ideal prospect often talk about finding a solution for this problem?

No = Add 0 points

How hard is it to find a solution for this problem?

Easy = Add 0 points

The Buying Frenzy Score for this idea is obviously 0.

Now your idea is likely to score somewhere between 0 and 11 points. Ideally you want to create something with a score of 10 or 11. Anything less than around 8 is going to struggle as a me-too offer competing with a lot of other options.

One simple way to easily increase your Buying Frenzy Score if it is too low for your core product is to add bonuses to fill any gaps you have in your core product offering. Creating or sourcing bonuses that lift your score to 10 or 11 will help you to crush it when you come to launch your new product.

Now you know how to create a Buying Frenzy for your proposed product, I hope you can use it to knock sales during your next product launch out of the park.
