What are the six steps of a product marketing launch plan?

A successful product marketing launch has many steps, with the main ones being:

  1. Do market research: Define your ideal customer and their needs, understand market trends, and do competitive intel research.
  2. Write product positioning and messaging: Based on your research and what your launch entails, you need to define your value propositions (the “what’s in it for me” for the customer) and develop your core messaging, which is the main takeaway a customer gets from your launch.
  3. Make your marketing plan: Outline the channels, launch partnerships, tactics, and content you’ll need to launch, and plot launch to-dos on a calendar to ensure you hit your launch deadline.
  4. Train and enable the team: Ensure relevant stakeholders like Sales, Customer Success, and Support are not only trained on how the product works, but also the key messaging so they engage with customers effectively.
  5. Launch the product: Ensure all your launch assets and activities are ready to go and launch it for the world to see.
  6. Monitor performance and make improvements: Track the KPIs you identified at the start, gather feedback, and make improvements depending on how you’re doing.
