If you have zero experience in launching a digital product, you might not be aware of the monumental tasks that it involves. It may look simple, but there’s more to it than meets the eye. There are plenty of things that need to be taken into account. Planning, coordination, and alignment of tasks and schedules are required for a successful product launch.
As hard as it is of a pill to swallow, you can’t do it all. In the off chance that you technically can do it, you’ll still end up with slow progress or none at all. Even if you did put in the work all day, every day.
The solution is pretty simple. Get a virtual assistant to help you out. A virtual assistant is a perfect addition to your project. An enthusiastic VA can collaborate with you and complete tasks that are bogging down your progress. Here are just a few of the things that a VA can contribute to your digital product’s progress.
1. Conceptualizing and Strategizing
Needless to say that there are numerous aspects of the digital product that will need to be planned in parallel and then aligned so everything works in perfect synchronization. You wouldn’t want to create hype and then fail to deliver on the promised date, would you? Or deliver a product on time but fail miserably at marketing. Avoid these product launching pitfalls and work alongside a VA.
Some worthwhile strategies include establishing a product roadmap, building trust with an audience, and creating relatable digital products and advertisements that will generate hype. This can extend to social media marketing and affiliate packages. Also, depending on the digital product, some websites with a likely huge following will also need extra attention in advertising strategies.
2. Organization and Preparation
There are a lot of things to create and organize prior to starting a marketing campaign. It’s much better to have a prepared collection of marketing materials beforehand than creating them along the way. For one, this makes coordination less of a headache. Also, it allows ample time for the repurposing of content.
Some nuances like adding correct payment links in place and reduction of repetitive tasks will also need attending to. Your virtual assistant can do these things pretty well.
3. Broadcasting and Marketing
If it still hasn’t come to light yet, you should be aware that social media is a crucial part of any product launch. This is where the buzz and hype for your offering will gain a huge momentum. Your virtual assistant can stir up social media hype by sharing your content and uploading it to your website as well as schedule social media posts and e-newsletters for hyped followers. This inadvertently builds trust and they end up spreading the word.
4. Launching Coordination and Support
While product planning may have taken quite a monumental effort for you and your virtual assistant, do note that it doesn’t end there. A successful launch will have its fair share of product support tasks which include coordination of contests, webinars, and updating of marketing information. Oh, and affiliates shouldn’t be deprived of support as they are your partners in sales.
These are just a few of the things that virtual assistants can lend a hand with. Get things done and hit the ground running by employing the help of your trusty VA as soon as possible.
