Pour out the vermouth, set the suds in the tub, and kick up your feet. Your brand is ready to launch!
Launching a new brand or offer is a wildly exciting time — it usually means you’re growing, changing, or adapting your business to reflect its current chapter. That’s worth whetting your whistle, isn’t it?
But if you have ever experienced a launch, you know it doesn’t happen overnight. (We wish.) Instead, it often takes weeks or even months of planning leading up to the big reveal, which can be difficult. Don’t sweat it, though.
We’re here to break down how you can launch your new brand or offer to much fanfare…and in only three steps.
Now that sounds positively manageable, doesn’t it?
This is your brand’s coming-out party — let’s make it one to remember.
You’ve been hard at work nailing down your values, your offers, your visuals, and the tech that helps you do your best work. But often, so many brands forget what comes after: sharing it with everyone.
We don’t want your new brand to launch to crickets. We want everyone raising a glass to you. So, while you’re entering the end stages of your branding project, also consider:
Tease your brand on Instagram, let people get tiny peeks. When we were launching Rendezvous Creative, for example, we were sharing sneak peeks of the website build. Our followers loved it!
Especially if you’re rebranding to attract a new or elevated client, you need to consider that your current audience may not be primed for your new brand.
Consider how you’re attracting leads who are right for this brand — whether it’s a new lead magnet, networking, affiliates, etc.
If you work with us, we’ll help you with your lead magnets and ensure that your brand’s attraction strategy is perfectly aligned with what you offer!
We want to have a great runway leading up to your launch — and we’ll share ours in just a bit. However, it’s important to think about how you want to kick off your brand’s launch.
Some people actually throw a party, whether it’s in person or online. If you do something like this, you might want to consider:
If you’re not really a party person, don’t worry. Your brand can still get all the buzz it deserves. Maybe you:
The list goes on. What’s important here is to decide what you want launch day to look like!
The invite list to any party is so important. Even if you don’t have a physical brand launch event, you want to think about having some enthusiastic supporters in your corner.
Who are you asking to share about your brand? Peers? Team members? Affiliates? Ask others to celebrate your brand launch to get more reach.
We know that a full rebrand or new brand is a lot of work. While you may not have everything updated on Launch Day, you should at least have:
Now that you have an idea of what a launch plan might include, you might be wondering… When should you start?
We like to think of a brand launch like a bubble bath. It takes a while to get the temperature right and to get the bubbles to the perfect height. You can’t just dive in when the water is cold!
Warm up your audience and they’ll repay you with enthusiasm and support. With that said, here’s what our typical ‘warmup’ timeline looks like:
Start teasing your launch! This can come to life through a sneak peek or quick overview through social media, email newsletters, and even your website (if it’s a big rebrand).
Prime your list, your social following, and your connections to celebrate with you. Let people see how excited you are, and share how they can support you! You might let them know your official brand launch date, what you’ll be doing, and invite them to attend or engage.
If you’re launching new products or services alongside your rebrand, create a waitlist to generate more buzz and excitement! Here, you can offer an extra incentive for those who join the waitlist, like exclusive access or a discount code.
If you’re hosting an event, make sure you have RSVPs or Zoom link invites sent out!
The bubbly is flowing!! It’s time to spread the excitement across all of your channels.
Make sure you’re:
Phew — that was a helluva launch! We know there is so much that you’ve just poured into your branding project and its launch. What’s next?
A little decompression, of course!
Rest a bit — because you’ve got important work to do. Of course, once the buzz of your new launch starts to fizzle, it’s time to think forward.
You’re a successful business owner with a bucket full of moxie, so you already know: You have to stay consistent and keep up.
You can’t go dark after a big ol’ celebration like this. Once you’re feeling more rested, it’s a smart move to have a consistent marketing strategy that continues to attract those primed, perfect leads to your newly refocused brand.
You want to stay top-of-mind for your audiences beyond your stunning launch party. You want them to wonder, “What are they doing now — and how can I be a part of it?” every time you show up in their feeds or inboxes.
If you’re still in the early phases of your re-branding or new brand development (or you’ve had a nightmare of a time moving your project forward), we’re here to help.
Because we know exactly what you’re going through!
You’ve outgrown your original offers and you want to expand into new territory.
