Your ready for Launch, lets explore how to have a successful MVP Launch

Posted in:


The challenge ahead is to not just inform the world about your new creation but to turn interest into active engagement, returning users and paying users.

They say this is when the real work starts, all of the work you have done in the START & LAUNCH phase has led you to the launch of your MVP. Your two priorities once launched are:

- Attract customers

- Learn from your customers and iterate/improve the product

Here's a step-by-step guide to effectively market your MVP and attract your first customers.

Step 1: Engage Your Waiting List

Your first action post-launch is to notify everyone on your waiting list (that you created in the START stage). Craft an engaging, informative email that not only announces the launch but also incites excitement. Personalise these emails if possible, explaining how your MVP addresses their specific needs or interests.

Step 2: Harness Social Media

Next, turn to social media. Use platforms where your target audience is most active. Create posts that are not just announcements, but stories that connect with your audience on an emotional level. Use visuals, videos, and compelling narratives about your product’s journey and potential impact.

Step 3: Leverage Influencer Partnerships

Influencer marketing can be a powerful tool. Identify influencers who align with your brand and product and engage them to spread the word. They can provide credibility and a broader reach to a more engaged audience. For more information see our article on "Should you trade equity for influence"

Step 4: Implement Content Marketing

Start a blog or use content marketing on platforms like Medium to share insights related to your product. Position yourself as a thought leader in your industry. Share stories about the development process, challenges overcome, and unique features of your MVP.

Step 5: Offer Incentives

Encourage early users to try your product by offering incentives. This could be a free trial period, discounts, or exclusive access to additional features. Make these initial users feel special – they could become your biggest advocates.

Step 6: Utilize Email Marketing

Beyond the initial announcement, use email marketing to keep your audience engaged. Share regular updates, user testimonials, and helpful resources. Segment your email list to deliver more targeted, relevant content.

Step 7: Participate in Online Communities

Engage with online communities relevant to your industry. This could be forums, LinkedIn groups, Reddit, or industry-specific platforms. Share your expertise, answer questions, and subtly introduce your MVP as a solution.

Step 8: Pay-Per-Click Advertising

If budget allows, consider pay-per-click (PPC) advertising on platforms like Google Ads or social media. This can help you reach a wider, yet targeted, audience quickly.

Step 9: Network and Collaborate

Attend industry events, webinars, and workshops. Networking can open doors to partnerships, collaborations, and new customer segments. Word-of-mouth through these networks can be incredibly valuable.


The launch of your MVP is just the beginning of your journey. It’s a continuous process of learning, adapting, and growing. Use these steps as a roadmap to not just tell the world about your product, but to build a loyal customer base and a strong presence in your market. Remember, the most successful products are those that evolve based on user feedback and market needs. Here’s to your successful launch and the exciting journey ahead!
