by Suresh Karuppaiya

At present days small business startup initiated with the product launch. The product maybe complex software or just an eBook that is not at all a matter the intention for the first product launch is to learn the all the things about the product launch from market research to the marketing the product.

The main product part of the product launch variation is the way of delivering our valuable solution for the customer problem. The rest of the procedure is same as any the product launch. Because when we plan to launch a product in marketplace we need to do market research about identifying the customer problem.

Once we have identified the problem we need to analyze certain things like the life time of the problem for the customer. find out whether  it is possible to give the solution at one time or we needed to give solution at regular basis.

Based on the problem identified by the market research and the requirements need to solve the problem and time taken to resolve the issues are in the consideration of creating new product. With respect to this consideration we need to classify the product type in two methods of delivery as follows

  • Fixed type Digital products
  • Subscription based Digital products.

Fixed product and subscription based product has the different procedures for creation and setup.

Fixed Type Digital Products

Fixed products are downloadable products once the sales funnel where completed we can get the whole product immediately. But the subscription based product we need to release the content for the initial subscription period. We can release the content in the next subscription also.

For subscription based product the content delivery, content management and production process somewhat complicated than the fixed product. Some content protection software and plugins were made easy the complex procedures into simple.

For fixed type digital products have created based on solution the customer problem. The member area is optional for this type of fixed products. The member area only needed when we have the fixed product for the long time customer issues.  For example when we consider the long term issue we have to update our product after the certain period.

So for this kind of situation we need to have member area for the customer. Also the customer feels special to have the membership once they have purchased the product from us. This will keep long term strong relationship with the customer.

Fixed type digital WordPress products examples

  • eBook
  • Software
  • Videos
  • Plugins
  • Themes
  • And etc.

These are the fixed products have used around the WordPress. These types of product needs a new version upgrade based on the core WordPress upgrade. We need to check the compatibility about our product once the WordPress updated with new features. Because we have created the add-on product for the WordPress so we need to do compatibility test for every update form the WordPress.

If our product is not an add-on product for the WordPress then there is no need for the compatibility check. We can upgrade our product with new feature in a regular interval in order to survive in the market we have acquired during the product launch.

Create an eBook – Fixed type product

eBook creation is the simple way to learn the product launch and marketing strategies. Every successful bloggers have their own eBook in their websites. Ebook creation process has explained here. We need to target the smaller part of the competitive niche for the eBook creation.

We know every person have interest on certain things. Some people have special talent in sport, cooking, remodeling or playing a musical tool and others. EBook is the good way to express your talent and stuffs and experience in certain things.

Software development is another way to create own fixed type product and launch in the marketplace. Once we found the solution for the customer problem. We are ready to convert it into a product. If the problem category is under the computers and software then we can develop the solution as software and use it in the market place.
