Paid Launch Strategy – Get Paid to Launch Your Membership

paid launch strategy

Who said you have to give stuff away for free to get leads?

Well, almost everyone, but that doesn’t mean you must follow it mindlessly.

And, here’s a “non-big name marketer” doing just that. 

Patty Palmer gives us a great example of how to get paid to launch your membership.

She charged a token fee of $37 for her 3 Day Virtual Workshop.

Does this mean that far fewer people register for your pre-launch workshop?


Does this mean that far fewer people will sign up for your launch?

No, not at all….

The reduction in the quantity of people in your launch will be offset by the quality of the people.

Adding friction to registration means attendees will be:

  • better qualified
  • invested in learning and taking action
  • more interactive
  • more likely to get results
  • more likely to sign up for your membership/program

That all sounds great, BUT there is a word of caution.

It places a premium on your copy and offer for the pre-launch workshop.

Now, instead of making one offer, you’re making two. 

That means two sales pages. That means two email sales campaigns.

If you screw the pooch with your pre-launch offer, you’re in big trouble for your launch.

Now, to be fair, if you do a shitty job on the offer for your free workshop, you’re also in trouble.

But because it’s free, you have a little leeway.

With a paid pre-launch offer, you better sharpen your pencil and get down to serious copywriting.

Patty does a great job of positioning her argument as to why people should attend.

Whether you are running a paid pre-launch or not, this is how you should think of your launch.
