I know why you’re here—you’re looking for a successful launch formula that’s sure to get you conversions once cart opens.
Well, get ready to rack in some bands, baby! We’re about to get you the conversions you’re looking for by breaking down the 5 pieces of copy every successful launch formula includes.
How successful your launch strategy is depends on how well you execute these 5 pieces of copy/content:
Grab a snack or a bev and settle in, because we’re gettin’ down n’ dirty on exactly how to create a launch strategy (with each of these pieces) that converts like crazy.
Before we begin creating your launch assets, we need to first know why tf we’re launching in the first place.
From there, we’ll be able to plan the copy/content needed for each phase of the launch.
There are a few reasons why we launch. Those could include any combo of the following:
(If none those fall under the “why” behind your launch, we need to talk.)
Now that we know why we’re doing the damn thing, these are the phases of a successful launch:
The pre-launch phase of your launch (aka pre-launch or warmup campaign) includes the weeks leading up to a launch. During this time, you should be priming your audience so they’re READY and excited for your offer when it finally launches.
The pre-launch campaign is important for a few reasons:
The active sales phase of your launch is when cart is actually open.
You’ve ~officially~ opened up shop, and your audience is finally able to get their hands on your offer.
Now that cart is open and you’re starting to generate sales, that doesn’t mean you should stop hyping and promoting your offer. Make sure to continue to speak of the benefits of what you’re selling and remind your people to buy before cart closes.
Sell, sell, SELL!
Pro Tip: Your cart doesn’t stay open forever, so your offer becomes all the more valuable because of the added pressure of scarcity and urgency. Don’t forget to highlight this in your marketing and messaging!
Once you’ve closed your doors, you can use this as an opportunity to see what worked and what you could’ve done better.
Now that you’ve successfully wrapped up the launch, you can take what you learned from the experience and apply it to further refine your processes and user experience.
Now, onto the fun part: creating each actual element/asset involved in a successful launch formula! I know copywriting for coaches isn’t always at the top of your fun things to do list, but I’m going to help make the process as simple and straightforward as it can get.
Your lead magnet is your chance to ATTRACT instead of CHASE.
Also known as an “opt-in incentive” or “freebie,” your lead magnet is something you offer for free in exchange for an email address. (Basically, this of this bad boy as an incentive to encourage your people to get on your email list)
We love a good lead magnet because it’s the first point of contact for warming up your audience for a launch while, of course, also adding more potential buyers to your email list.
Your lead magnet/freebie/opt-in incentive is an ESSENTIAL first step in developing a solid as helllllll relationship with your perfect people (your ideal buyers). This way, your audience will be begging to buy by the time your cart opens!
So, what’s the goal? To attract new leads—hence the name, lead magnet—while building connection and providing value to potential buyers.
Examples of lead magnets:
Your opt-in page/landing page is a one-off webpage with one singular goal and *one* CTA: to get a subscriber’s email address.
Your opt-in page is how we promote your lead magnet and the page where your audience is able to actually opt in to receive it.
The why behind this guy is to convert interested prospects into email subscribers. Yay!
Examples of opt-in pages:
Also called a welcome sequence, your nurture email sequence is a series of emails that subscribers will receive when they first opt in to your content (thanks to your lead magnet + landing page).
Your subscribers will be most engaged within the first 24-48 hours and the average open rate of a welcome email is 58% so we want to make the absolute most of these emails!
Your nurture email sequence is so freaking important to execute correctly because it allows you the opportunity to nurture the new leads you just gained from your lead magnet/landing page and get them ready to take action when your offer is announced.
Pro Tip: You can automate this whole process, fyi.
The goal of your nurture email sequence is to keep your brand fresh in your prospects minds while warming them up for your eventual offer.
Your sales page is a standalone alone webpage with just one goal: to sell your offer.
Pro Tip: Sales pages and landing pages are NOT the same thing, so don’t get it twisted.
Here’s the difference:
Your sales page acts as the central hub for educating your reader on your offer. This is where you’ll be talking about:
This is where you’ll be taking your reader to their final buyer destination (the CTA to make a purchase) through the various strategically mapped out sections of the page.
The goal for your sales page is to get them to your checkout page and make that cash moneyyyy.
Examples of sales pages:
Now that your offer is available and ready to buy, time to promote tf out of it!
Your launch/promo emails are the emails you send that directly promote your offer.
CTA = BUY THIS OFFER.
Fun Fact: For every $1 you spend on email marketing, you can expect an average return of $42 – score!
Now that you’ve successfully nurtured your new subscribers and warmed them up via your nurture sequence, your launch emails will then make your readers aware that your offer exists and why they’re going to want to buy it.
And the goal? To convert readers into buyers by getting them to the next step in the process → Clicking over to the sales page (which will finish the job for ya!).
Time to pop the champagne because we freaking made it! Now you know every necessary element of a launch that sells your sh*t and makes a lasting impact.
Here’s a breakdown of the main points we covered:
My hope is that you leave here feeling confident as hell in your ability to weave words together to make something abso-f*cking-lutely magical for both you and your dream prospects. The cold, hard conversions will inevitably follow.
Whether you’re saying “Mack, I f*cking got this” or “Mack, I still need more help,” I got you, boo! If you want proven high-converting launch copy that does the selling for you over and over again (and then again after that), let’s hop on a call and make it happen!
“If you’ve been sitting in the copywriting spiral wishing that someone could jump into your brain and just get it, Mackenzie is your answer—trust me, she fucking gets it! Wow did she deliver and then some!
I had worked with previous copywriters and was worried she wouldn’t be able to nail my voice—that my authenticity wouldn’t show through. But Mack absolutely smashed it.
“This was the first time that I had outsourced copywriting, so I was very nervous to make this investment but it was 100% worth it. Every single penny.
So if you're thinking of working with Mackenzie, you should totally do it. She's amazing. She's super talented, and it's going to be a really great investment.”
She’s such a genius with all things messaging, positioning, the nitty gritty of specific types of sales copy that you need in your business. And honestly, there’s just nobody who sums up better and more succinctly and actionably exactly how to formulate words that sell and copy that converts.
