Before the Launch

Build interest and excitement for the products you are launching.

Leading up to the launch, ensure that your viewers have a clear understanding of the following:

  • When your product will be available.

  • What will be available.

  • How you feel about the product — favourite feature, product quality, apparel fit, etc.


Use your direct channels (YouTube, Twitch, Instagram, TikTok, Discord etc.) to communicate the details of your launch starting 10 – 14 days in advance of your launch date. Focus on frequency and engagement. Your messaging frequency will determine how well your viewers retain key information like the launch date/time and product details. Creating engaging content will help connect the viewer to you and your product(s), increasing their likelihood to purchase.

Throughout your pre-launch promotion ensure you’re doing the following:

  • Post across the channels you typically engage with your fans on

  • Post with some frequency, targeting 2 – 3 posts before launch on each channel, teasing your product and adding additional detail with each post.

  • Tell a story about how the merch came to life or why it’s important to you or exciting for you

Promotion frequency should depend on your typical posting schedule. If your posting schedule is infrequent, adjust the level of detail included in each post and consider starting your pre-promotion 1 – 2 weeks earlier.
