The Safe Pick"
MARKETING SHOULD START THE MOMENT THE PRODUCT IS CONCEPTUALIZED"
Marketing for the Concept Phase"
Build the marketing into the product. Create an incentive to share. Make sharing easy."
Test assumptions (cost, messaging, bundle mix, etc.). Ads to landing pages. "
Get to know influencers & media people on Twitter. Give a lot. Dont ask for anything."
Amazon Method of Product Marketing"
" Internal press release announcing finished product BEFORE ITS MADE"" Target audience new products customers
(retail customers or internal users of a tool or technology)"
" Centered around the customer problem"" How current solutions (internal or external)
fail"" How the new product will blow away
Amazon Internal PR - Layout"" Heading - Name the product in a way the reader (i.e. your target customers) will
understand"" Sub-Heading - Describe who the market for the product is and what benefit they
get. One sentence only underneath the title."" Summary - Give a summary of the product and the benefit. Assume the
reader will not read anything else so make this paragraph good."" Problem - Describe the problem your product solves."" Solution - Describe how your product elegantly solves the problem."" Quote - A quote from a spokesperson in your company."" How to Get Started - Describe how easy it is to get started."" Customer Quote - Provide a quote from a hypothetical customer that describes
how they experienced the benefit."" Closing and Call to Action - Wrap it up and give pointers where the reader
should go next."" http://tomtunguz.com/ good stuff here"
" Start a blog with newsletter sign up"" Landing pages more sign ups (is there
a way to advertise the service on an internal network?)"
" A/B test messaging & optimization"" Social outreach starts"The point here is to begin to build interest and an audience through good content before launch""
IN THE BEGINNING THE GOAL SHOULD BE PRODUCT / MARKET FIT"40% IS GOLD*" * 40% of your customer base would be upset if your product disappeared. Seth Ellis"

" ACCELERATE NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT by continuously increasing your knowledge and understanding of the needs of your customer, and encouraging innovative solutions to address those needs"
Marketing for the Launch Phase"Ask the media people and influencers who now know you if they would be willing to check out your product & give feedback ."
Send an announcement to the list youve been growing through the blog, ads, & social. Attempt an act of virility (it just might work)"
