In the last article of the 90 day challenge, we discussed how to successfully complete a soft launch. With a soft launch, you are only releasing your product/service with the bare essentials and zero marketing fanfare. Now that you’ve done that, it’s time to start getting ready to fully launch your business. In this article, we’ll explore the launch process in depth.
Launching your business can be a nerve-racking time.
If, however, you’re not quite ready to fully launch just yet, why not try testing your product or service out in a more controlled environment?
Both beta testing periods and soft launches are highly valuable learning procedures. You can gain some insightful customer feedback and iron out any kinks in your business before you fully go to market.
In this article, we’ll guide you through each stage of these processes to help you gain the most value out of this experience.

It’s time to focus on the specifics of how your business is going to run and operate on a daily basis.
A business plan is required to sell your idea to investors or banks, persuading them to fund you. They won’t just part with their cash, you need to make them believe in your idea as much as you do! Even if you aren’t going down this funding route, creating a business plan gives you focus, direction and a clear path to achieving your goals.
