*Note: In the spirit of full disclosure and helping in any way I can, I am filling you in on both the below details and my full private product launch checklist. I only disclose this information because I feel it will allow you to further Live Your Legend. Sometimes real numbers help people listen a little more closely.
On November 8th, 2011 I launched Live Your Legend’s flagship product – the Live Off Your Passion self study eCourse.
In the following 30 days the course sold 369 copies and made $31,355.50.
I was blown away.
But in a way I believe I (with the guidance of some very smart folks) created much of that luck.
I believe that at least 70% (if not more) of my success came from my detailed development and launch strategy.
After the launch settled down, I spent a full day deconstructing my full product creation and launch process for two reasons:
- To understand what worked & why, and
- To make the experience repeatable
The result was a 7-page, 135-item checklist of tasks and events that took place over the course of about 3 months from product creation all the way through to launch and post-launch.
I thought about keeping this private but in the spirit of helping you any way I can, just last night I put it into a free PDF download as part of the Epic Work Toolkit that all subscribers have free access to (download your copy at the bottom of this post – if reading this in email, click here to get access).
Warning: this checklist won’t be any use unless you are genuinely helping people.
Remember, it all comes back to helping those around you.
None of these product creation and launch strategies matter even an ounce if you do not do the things we’ve discussed in the past few weeks.
You absolutely must:
- Find a way to massively help people using your passions and gifts
- Build it into an incredibly compelling and different positioning and online offer
- Surround yourself with passionate people doing the impossible
If you need a refresher, go back and read the last four articles on this site. Seriously take some time and meditate on that stuff.
Then come back to this checklist and watch it blow your mind.
*Note: Before creating my product, my friend Corbett Barr said I absolutely must read How to Launch the *** Out of Your eBook. The guidance in that book was absolute gold and it works for most any online product launch. Much of my launch checklist came from the things I learned in that book. The problem was the book didn’t provide an easy-to-follow checklist, so I decided to make one myself!

**Some clarity for those of you new to Live Your Legend: Just so you know how things work around here, every couple months I create a massive workbook or tool in the form of a PDF, Word doc or online test to help you further do work you love, and I make it available totally for free as part of the set of tools every email subscriber gets access to (I call it the Epic Work Toolkit). It’s a way of me saying thanks for your support.

I hope this launch checklist is even half as helpful for you all as it was for me!
