Okay, now that you know WHAT you plan to offer, and WHEN you plan to offer it, it's time to break this all down into actionable steps.
To begin, we need to brainstorm the steps you'll need to take to accomplish the task, and then, we need to assign a timeline to each task.
Once we have those things set, we can work BACKWARDS from the launch date to set our schedule.
Of course, this is easier than it sounds, and a lot of what we'll be planning is going to be guesswork – educated guesswork – but guesswork just the same.
This is especially true if you've never done parts (or all) of the process before.
Don't worry, though, you CAN do this!
Write out a list of each step you need to take to complete each portion of your offer.
If you have ONE item, you'll have ONE list. If you have TWO items (i.e. a main offer and an add on), you'll have TWO lists. If you have THREE items (i.e. a main offer, an upsell, and a downsell), you'll have THREE lists.
Put EVERY STEP into your list(s)!
Here's a sample of ONE of the product checklist lists I use:
– Funnel Plan (FE, Upsell, Downsell)
– Product Outlines (FE, Upsell, Downsell)
– Product Graphics
– Sales Copy (x3)
– Products (x3)
– Checkout Forms (x3)
– Sales Pages (x3)
– AWeber List Set Up (x3)
– aMember Product Set Up (x3)
– Request Single Opt-In for Lists (x3)
– Affiliate Banners
– Affiliate Swipes
– Affiliate Page
– Products Loaded to Amazon S3
– Offer Funnel Set Up
– Test Funnel
– Affiliate Notice
As you can see, I have EVERYTHING that's part of the process listed, and so should you!
We'll go over what you've written down, make adjustments, and put it all into a Project Planner, so you can track your progress, and stay focused!
