Your product launch is like a debut film of a rising star, where your first performance will decree the number hits they’ll be starring in, in future. Similarly, the way you set the mood for your product launch and the way you perform the big reveal can manipulate consumer responses to a large extent.
A successful launch requires endless efforts, time, unlimited trial runs and a million technical checks before the new product shows face in the market. The grandeur of your launch will also reflect how much the company has invested in manufacturing it. This is why leading brands take due time creating hype for their new product before it makes its first appearance. That automatically makes audiences curious to learn more and paves the way for future sales.
It takes experience and expertise to organize a successful product launch. The more foolproof and professional the launch is, the better the fate will be for the product.
Here’s how to launch your latest release successfully.
Quality is Everything
A product launch is often confused with a brand launch and this misconception often lands marketers in deep trouble. When buyers await a new product release, they don’t expect to be shown a 5-minute video about the parent company or brand. That bit of information is already given to them, which is why it’s a waste of time, money and resources. A product launch should be less about the logo that is branded on it and more about what more it has to offer. Focus on highlighting the special features and the better quality of the product and make sure you have media coverage ready to broadcast the news from the get-go.
After working on the new product for months or even a year, the company and product team is well-aware of the smallest details in it. What you might be taking for granted may not be available at face value to the market. Consumers need to be told why the product is being launched and what needs does it aim to fulfill. Sometimes consumers may not even be aware of a need until you tell them so. Leverage data to prepare ground for the final launch so that the audience is prepared to see what is being shown.
Remember Your Customers
Your regular customers are your biggest assets. A happy client is of more good to a business than it may realize because they offer voluntary marketing services without charging a penny. Their word also carries more credibility in the buyers’ community because they’re all on the same side of the court and trust another’s opinion of a product. You can transform the perception of your product through formalized endorsements and buy-ins via beta programs. No matter how much you invest in your launch, the contribution of your loyal customers can be a game changer.
