    How To Create A Pre-Launch Buzz That Will Generate A Buying Frenzy

    Often when launching a new product, it is easy to overlook the pre-launch phase. The pre-launch phase is the phase between the creation of your product and the launch day. This is the phase you should use to warm your market up to your upcoming product launch. In other words, you "salt" the market until they are thirsty for your product on launch day. The pre-launch phase is what creates a buying frenzy.

    Firstly, what you need to do to create a pre-launch buzz is to create a pre-launch page. You should offer a free report on this page that acts as a teaser to your main product. Your should capture people's emails on this page so you can follow them up for the launch itself.

    On the page, you should have a timer that counts down to the launch day. This creates huge anticipation. You can get these timers from Javascript sites like HotScripts.com.

    Next, you should contact potential joint venture partners to launch your product. You can find joint venture partners on Clickbank's marketplace or just by searching through listings on Google to find other entrepreneurs in your niche. Approach them and ask them to promote your product. Give them an incentive to promote your product by doing perhaps a cross-promotion, offer huge commissions and even affiliate contest prizes. You must do everything you can to help your partners succeed with your product launch because they will be your main generators of traffic. Your success depends on their success.

    I'm surprised how this thread has been almost unnoticed. It is in the pre-launch phase that most marketers fail and it is also the phase that I personally find most difficult. It's pretty "easy" to create a good product and a converting landing page but to create a buzz around your launch... That is where success is born.

    Thank you!

    A 3 way sideways sales letter is a common option - gives you 3 shots to build the appetite for the product. It's good to embed a facebook wall page beneath each video and ask for feedback. You can cover off any questions in subsequent videos removing the barriers to purchase.

    The launch is the sexy phase and that's why it gets the most attention, but it's the prep and pre-launch that is the important variable in launch success...as you point out so nicely.

    If you can get the pre-launch buzz to go viral...launch day will be even more fun...and rewarding

    I like that idea! Very wise indeed.

    When I did my pre-launch for Income Fitness, I created a special VIP prelaunch membership site which every few days, I'd give away something of value relating to me product.

    I'm not sure if Jeff Walker invented the sideways sales letter but he's the one that made it mainstream through his PLF products.

    I am guilty of this myself, but it's soo tempting for marketers to try and sell too quickly and have tunnel vision to make the immediate sale instead of focusing on maximizing the lifetime value of the prospects and visitors. The traditional sales letter is attractive at first because it's the fastest way to get money from your visitors, but the fastest money doesn't mean the most money.

    Jeff turns the long page sales letter into a multi-stage process whereby there is a whole prelaunch phase warming up prospects and collecting their emails (for long term monetization...maximizing lifetime value) then the launch phase where the spike of money is made, and then the post launch which is primarily focused on maximizing lifetime value of customers AND non-customers.

    It's amazing how well this elongating the sales process works.

    So, it is tempting to slap up a sales page to get the instant sales, but it's important to think long term and control the temptations of instant gratification.


    I also love the facebook comment idea underneath videos. You can even add an incentive to comment (like free course, book, whatever) to motivate people to comment and share your pre-launch stuff virally.

    Very good article. I am actually on your list and I must say you do give away great content. Good call about the timer, I never thought about doing that but now that I think about it I have seen it on many prelaunch pages etc. Thanks for the info.

    Good Advice Fabian!

    I think most beginners fall into this trap. It's easy to think the product you are launching is the best thing ever, while sitting back and "waiting" for affiliates to dive all over it.

    Truth is, affiliates need to be treated like precious gold.

    They also need things simple.
    The better your affiliate page the better your response, the better your return. The easier it is for any affiliate to get on board and promote quickly, the more likely they are to "move quickly to rally around you".

    Most people who have launched a product quickly realise how much money the affiliates can bring to the table. Once you realise how much they cam put into your bank account, the sooner you'll understand how precious they are.

    Thank's for the post Fabian. A great reminder for us all!

    Best regards,
    John
