Want to bring a new product or service to the market? You have done your homework and you have determined just what you want to deliver. Now good sales is exactly what you need. Sounds pretty easy, isn’t it? Yet countless new ideas for goods and services are created every day — never to be born because they are not adequately put onto the market.
Launching a new product can be difficult for many reasons. Perhaps this is your first ever launch, so you’re completely confused about how to deliver marketing messages to email inboxes or social media accounts.
Here I’m putting a few things you need to do for this:
How to market a new product
#1 Study the Competition
First thing you need to do is a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis. You have to start by looking at your competitors seriously.
Make a list of the companies that sell similar goods or services to the one you plan to market. Also if you think your new product or service is absolutely different and without any current competition, it’s necessary to put yourself in the shoes of your prospective customers and consider what they would purchase instead of what you’re planning to sell. How they’re running marketing campaigns. This is the initial step for coming up a new product.
#2 Target the right customer
It is important that you focus solely on the customers that you think are most likely to buy from you. These may be consumers purchasing something similar at the moment and would appreciate the extra features that your new product or service provides. Your best prospects have a sense of what you are selling, and can afford to purchase it.
For example, you’re going to launch a new FastFood shop. It’s near to a renowned school. So,your main target should be school going kids. Plan the menu according to that. What they might wanna have in tiffin break or after class. What can be the best advertisement to attract some school going kids? Think more and more.
#3 Stay within your known Industry
Companies that are getting bigger naturally widen their range of goods and services. For example, a beauty company that starts selling lipstick on Instagram may open an outlet after expansion.
Similarly, a marketing company that starts selling one product, like an automated email service, might eventually expand to release automated marketing software on different fronts.
Consider stacks of potential future products when launching a new one. What is it going to feel like? It’s most likely best to stay inside your industry. Because that’s your comfort zone.
#4 Come up with a story
One sure- of effectively selling a product is to tell a story. Stories have the consumer’s emotional hand, which can be something that they respond to when achieved effectively.
When you think about the last time you have felt something when watching an ad, you may immediately remember what you felt and what it was. Stories such as the popular commercial Cocacola, Grameenphone.
# 5 Roll out your campaign
Public relations also plays a key role in a product or service being launched. You can use public relations tactics to position articles and win interviews, get attention by having key press review your product, host a launch event, or use grassroots marketing to build excitement. But no matter what promotional route you want, make sure first that your product or service is fully ready and available for sale.
#6 Make a realistic promise
Your launching is based on achieving a target list, right? Customers want to be pleased if you demonstrate how your product accurately solves their problem.
Frankly, if you promise something that isn’t true to size in marketing, then it’s best not to go in that direction.Then give them what you’ve promised. Good for building reputation. Helpful for your new product as well.
