Don’t be daunted by the idea of doing a product launch. It’s not rocket science


These are the 3 basic necessities

Second, find the spot in your competitors’ product line where they are weakest
Third, create a product that resonates with your market and sell it at a premium price

It costs almost as much to create a cheap bottle as it does to create an expensive one. A st.Emillion Grand Cru Classe sells for 10 times the amount of a bottle of plonk so if you want to make the maximum return on your investment from your product launch it makes sense to find a market full of people who will naturally buy the most expensive products.


They do not consider cheap products. They only want the best. They believe that by buying at top dollar they are far more likely to get what they are looking for. And they are generally right. Having invested in a premium product, they are much more likely to consume it and the least likely to complain or return it.
Focus your market research on the 20% of your niche with 80% of the money and you are setting yourself up for long term success
