Why A Seed Launch Is The Perfect Springboard For A Profitable Online Business

Product Launch Formula Seed LaunchThere’s a reason why Jeff Walker recommends using a Seed Launch as the first step you take when you are thinking about creating a new information product.

And that’s because a Seed Launch allows you to create a product you KNOW has proven demand before you create it, and it allows you to create what we call the minimum viable product to test the market quickly and inexpensively.

We all know people who have spent weeks, months or even years creating products that nobody wanted to buy.

Don’t do that…

By using a Seed Launch to ask people in your market for their ideas and feedback on what they really want to buy, you can get paid to before you even create a product, and include everything your customers want included so the finished product is tailor made just for them.

And you can use a series of these small, low-risk launches to start and grow an information product empire in just a few years…

BONUS: Download my 72 Hour Product Creation Guide which shows you how to build high value products that will position you as an expert one after the other in 72 hours or less.

So how do you create one of these cool little launches?

Step 1 – Find Out What People Want To Buy

The first step is to survey your market and ask people what they want to buy.

You can use a free tool such as Surveymonkey.com to ask people what their biggest problem is, what they’ve already tried that didn’t work for them, and what their ideal product would have to include to make them really blown away.

Step 2 – Outline Your Product Into 4 – 6 Modules

The second step is to outline the content of your product into 4, 5 or 6 modules, starting chronologically from the steps your customers should take first, and leading through each step until they can achieve they outcome they are looking for.

Once you’ve got your outline, fill in each Module with the 5 – 6 minor steps needed to complete that Module.

Now once you’ve done this for all 6 (or whatever) Modules, create the content for MODULE 1 ONLY. You don’t want to fill in every piece of content for every Module yet because you are going to be using feedback you get from your students as you complete each module of the training.

Step 3 – Schedule A Live Webinar For Each Module

You are going to deliver your Course content via a series of weekly live Webinars. I know this might sound scary, but honestly it is the fastest and by far the best way to create content on the fly that people will actually find valuable.

The format will be along the lines of:

Week 1 – Deliver the content you have prepared or Module 1 over 40 – 90 minutes, and then answer every question your students have. The day after you’ve delivered your content, send students the Webinar replay along with a survey and ask them if they have any unanswered questions, tell them what Module 2 is going to cover, and ask them for their questions on that topic.

Week 2 – Take 60 – 90 minutes to answer any questions from the previous week, deliver the second week’s content based on what your students told you they wanted to know (along with your own insights), and then answer every question you can.

The day after you’ve delivered your content, again send students the Webinar replay along with a survey and ask them if they have any unanswered questions, tell them what you’ll be covering in Module 3, and ask them for their questions on that topic.

Week – 3 – 6 – Take 60 – 90 minutes to answer any questions from the previous week, deliver the third week’s content based on what your students told you they wanted to know in the survey (along with your own insights), and then answer every question you can for as long as it takes.

Each week continue sending the Webinar replays along with surveys asking them if they have any unanswered questions, tell them what the next Module is going to cover, and ask them for their questions on that topic. Keep delivering your Webinars until you finish going through the entire course.

Step 4 – Make An Irresistible Offer For Your New Product

Once you’ve scheduled your Webinar series, it’s time to start enrolling students. Because you are trying to test the market, and making a profit during your Seed Launch is not the primary objective, you can afford to make an irresistible offer for your new product in order to get as many virtual “bums on seats” as possible.

You should aim for at least 50 people at the start of your course, because your must have interaction with your students (by getting them to ask questions and complete your surveys) and as your course gets towards the end, a good proportion of people will drop off and simply won’t show up.

If you really have to, you can give some people complementary access to get the numbers up, but you don’t want to be giving access away to everyone because the goal as we said is to test the market.

One final thing. Being able to create an irresistible offer is so important to the success of your Seed Launch that I’ve put together a Free Cheat Sheet that shows you how to create the perfect offer. To make sure you don’t miss anything as you develop your offer, click here to grab your Free copy of The Perfect Offer Cheatsheet

Step 5 – Deliver Your Training Webinars

Now it’s time to deliver each Module, surveying your students and answering their questions as you go.

At the end of your course’s scheduled content, it’s a good idea to overdeliver and give a free Bonus Webinar to cover additional insights and answer any final questions your students may have.

When you’ve completed your training, you’ll have an awesome course created with the help of your students that gives people in your market exactly what they want to know about the topic you covered.

Having your new product allows you to do regular Internal Launches, and when you’ve tested your launch content, you can roll out a big JV Launch, build a huge email list, and clean up financially.

That’s how you can use Jeff Walker’s Seed Launch as the perfect springboard for a profitable, long-term, sustainable business for yourself and your family that will allow you to prosper for many years to come. To learn more, check out Jeff Walker’s free Product Launch Masterclass here.

The Seed Launch Video – How To Get Paid To Create Your Product

In his Seed Launch video, creator of the Product Launch Formula, Jeff Walker, walks you through the first launch most people who don’t have a product of their own do, which is the Seed Launch.

This type of launch allows you to test whether the market actually wants what you are thinking of creating, and then get paid BEFORE you even create the product.

Plus because your students help you to create the perfect product that they want to buy, you get a lot more ‘buy-in’.

Jeff Walker’s free Product Launch Formula training.

Here’s The REAL Power Behind A Product Launch Formula Style ‘JV Launch’

There are a LOT of benefits in following the Product Launch Formula to run a big JV Launch.

First up, as long as you’ve tested your pre-launch content, your offer and the rest of your sales process (usually best done using a Seed Launch or an Internal Launch), you can make a hell of a LOT of money because you are leveraging the lists of a lot of other people who are all sending you their prospects and customers.

Then there are the great relationships you’ll build with other people in your market who supported you during the launch. Any way you look at it, helping people to make more money and grow their influence is always going to have a positive effect on your business too.

But there’s a third big benefit that most people don’t realise is the most powerful one of all.

It’s the big list you get to build during your JV Launch that creates much more value than the actual sales you make at the time.

Here’s why:

Let’s say your business is in the golf market, and your Launch is for a coaching program that helps amateur golfers take strokes off their game while improving their mental toughness.

If you play your cards right, you’ll have a bunch of JV partners driving traffic to your website, and all of those people will be added to YOUR email list.

When your launch is over, YOU get use that new, bigger list as a distribution channel to sell all kinds of other products and services and you get to keep ALL OF THE PROFIT on those sales.

That’s because once somebody has shown their interest by making a golf related purchase, they are far more likely to buy other products and services in that category than somebody who has never purchased a golf product.

And you use joint ventures with other vendors to get access to all of these other products.

Just think of the possibilities…

You could offer:

  • Additional training programs that add to and complement your own.
  • A set of new golf clubs and all kinds of accessories to help improve their game.
  • New golf shirts just like the pros wear on the PGA tour. 
  • New covers for your woods and maybe even their irons.
  • Private or group lessons from a club or touring professional to improve their game even more.
  • You could team up with a travel agent and offer golfing tours and holidays so they can play at the best courses around the country or the world.
  • And of course there are all kinds of other products and services you could offer as well…

And you can earn a great commission or referral fee on every one of these additional sales you make, for as long as people stay subscribed to your email list.

That’s why the list you build during a JV launch is such a valuable asset, in addition to the immediate income you generate.

Here’s proof that this list building technique works

You’ll see a screen shot of the JV leaderboard in the lead generation contest for Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Formula launch. The people with red arrows next to their name have ALL recently completed launches of their own…

Recent Product Launch Results

As you can see, SIX of the top 11 people on this Jeff’s JV Leaderboard have recently launched their own products, and are now using the nice big lists they created during those launches to participate in and dominate a completely different launch for somebody else’s product.

How cool is that?

Can you imagine doing this for yourself?

Jeff Walker Has Started His Once A Year Free Launch Workshop

Jeff Walker started his once-a-year free “Launch Workshop” a couple of days ago, and as usual it’s very cool.

While the free content he’s giving away is a lead-in to sell Product Launch Formula when the cart opens in a few days, it would be big a mistake to miss this training, even if you have no intention of becoming a PLF member.

That’s because this free “Launch Workshop” is more valuable than most of the “Product Launch courses floating around that people charts hundreds or thousands of dollars for.

You can literally take what you learn in this free workshop and launch a business from scratch.

Or you could grow your existing business quickly by “re-launching”.

Jeff has been doing this every year since 2005, and he’s had nearly one million people go through the workshop – and the success stories keep coming.

The only catch is that it’s only available for a few days… and you’ll have to opt in to get access (well worth it) so go check it out right now.

Click this link to get access to the free workshop.

Warm regards,

Rocky

P.S. The first lesson covers a simple launch strategy called a “Seed launch” and it’s generated hundreds of millions in results. Click this link to grab your free access now.

Did You Watch The Seed Launch Training Yet?

Just wanted to make sure you saw this “Seed Launch” video that Jeff Walker has released as part of his new Launch Workshop.

Even If You Have NO list And NO Product, Creating A Profitable Launch Is NO Problem

If you’ve been worried about starting a business but you have no product or no email list to launch it to, then there is hope.

Jeff Walker (the guy who invented the online product launch) has released the latest version of his video training on how to create a “Seed launch”… and how you can use a Seed Launch to create an new business from scratch – starting with no list and no product.

You can check the video out here.

He also shows you how he used “Launch Stacking” to go from a sty-at-home-dad (with $400 per year in disposable income) to his first million dollars in sales. It’s a really inspiring story.

And the amazing thing is this strategy will work with almost ANY type of business.

This video is all pure content… the only “catch” is you need to opt-in to get it, but make sure you do – it’s totally worth it.)

Warm regards,

The Fastest Way To Build A List Of Targeted Prospects Without Paying For Traffic Up Front

As Frank Kern says on his website’s home page (screen shot below), “The Most Dependable And Consistent Way To Generate Wealth Is To Turn Advertising Into Profit.”

Frank Kern Home Page

This is so true, and if you can develop an offer that allows you to generate a large number of leads while breaking even or make a small profit on the front-end, you have the opportunity to create an extremely profitable business by monetising the back-end.

For many small businesses, the problem is coming up with an advertising campaign that can do that after factoring in all of your customer acquisition costs.

One proven way (although obviously it’s not suited to every business) is to do a product launch.

Here’s why…

1. When you launch a new product or service using techniques such as email sequences and video, you create an enormous amount of buzz, authority, and social proof for you and your business.

And by turning the release of your product or service into an Event like this, you are also benefiting from a range of powerful mental triggers including:

  • Reciprocity
  • Anticipation
  • Proof
  • Community
  • Interaction and conversation
  • Scarcity

2. By recruiting JV partners and affiliates to send you traffic, you only pay a commission for sales after your affiliates have made them. You usually don’t pay for all the leads you generate (more on this below).

Of course you’ll have to do some preliminary testing to make sure your launch is going to convert for your affiliates. This is where a Seed Launch and an Internal Launch will set the scene for a profitable JV or partner launch.

A Seed Launch only requires a very small email database to succeed, and allows you to get paid to create an information product that contains the exact training and insights the people in your market want to buy (because they helped you to create it).

And an Internal Launch lets you create your pre-launch content, develop a killer offer, and test your systems in a low risk environment (your prospects and customers will be more forgiving of minor mistakes you might make).

Once you’ve developed your product and tested your systems using your existing email database of prospects and customers,, you can confidently roll out your JV launch with selected partners.

3. A product launch allows you to do a massive list-build of targeted prospects who can buy from you again in the future.

Your JV partners all mail their email lists and send their subscribers to your optin page so you can send your pre-launch content to their people.

You get to keep this list of prospects after the launch is over, and that means you can go from a few hundred or a few thousand people on your personal list, to potentially tens or hundreds of thousands of people in a very short period of time.

Here’s an example from a recent launch of how Peter Diamandis generated over $430,000 in sales, 46,000 new leads, and 18,350 books sold (here’s a link to the article).

Product Launch Sales Funnel

Want some proof that this list building technique works?

In Jeff’s recent PLF launch, the JV leaderboard for the lead generation contest was dominated by people who had ALL recently completed launches of their own…

In fact SIX of the top 11 people on Jeff’s JV Leaderboard had recently launched their own products, and are now using the lists they built during those launches to participate in and dominate a completely different launch for somebody else’s product.

How cool is that?

Can you imagine doing this for yourself?

The JV Launch – Leverage Your Work With The Biggest Product Launch Of All

The Joint Venture (or JV) Launch is the pinnacle of applying Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Formula because it allows you to leverage all of the work you’ve done on your Seed launch and your Internal launch, and multiply your results using partners who are paid for results.

The JV Launch lets you tap into the audiences of your partners to generate a huge windfall of sales, and grow your list exponentially in the process. That’s because you could be putting your launch content in front of thousands or tens of thousands potential customers.

Yes you pay an affiliate commissions to your partners, but the great thing is you only pay them AFTER they’ve made sales for you, AND you get to keep every subscriber, even those who didn’t purchase this time.

Then you can promote other products and services to your new subscribers, so you can make a fortune on the backend.

Launch Stacking The Product Launch Formula Way

Once you’ve used a Seed Launch to create your product, and you’ve run your Internal Launch and your JV Launch, you will have seen the power of the Product Launch Formula process for yourself.

As Jeff Walker says, you’ll never just do one launch.

In fact, once you see how well a launch generates sales while building your email list, it can become addictive (in a good way 🙂

So that’s where Launch Stacking comes in.

Jeff Walker’s free Product Launch Formula training.

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.

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,
