Launching a product is no easy task. The whole process often involves a lot of sleepless nights and many long days where you would question yourself and what you are doing. During this process, you will run up and down, trying to ensure that everything goes on perfectly.
Knots in your stomach
Before you launch your product, everything that you do is subject to change. You can create plans and change them, you can change the product itself, you can move the launch date etc. This means that you are in the space of time that you can determine your own fate. However, once you launch the product, once you put your product on the shelves and on your website, you have crossed the threshold and can rarely go back. It means that you have accepted the risk and determined that you are ready to dip your feet in the murky waters that are the business world. This line once crossed means that you are now ready to face either success or failure. It is at this time that you will often have a knot in your stomach and massive migraines and headaches. While you pore over the possibilities that may occurs after launch of your product, you will often feel less of human and operate robotically. You should know that these feelings are completely normal and should be embraced as part of the process. Accepting the situation tends to shield you from the negative effects that may come as a result of the pressure you may be undergoing.
What should I do?
The one thing that you ought to do as you go through the launch process is to believe in yourself. As long as you believe that you are helping people and that you are providing quality services and products that you should push ahead. Self-belief goes a long way in providing you with the momentum that you need after the product launch. This momentum is what you will need to continue on as the euphoria of the first days of your product launch dies down. Self belief will also enable you understand that you may not be able to impress everyone and that there will always be people who will give negative feedback.
Even with the negative feedback, you should be able to push on and exert your presence on the space that you would like to join. Believing in yourself while in business also builds your confidence and creates the brand around you. This brand is what you can then sell and build your customer base.
Business comes with highs and lows; there will be very many opportunities for failure as well as success. You should be able to pull yourself up and rebuild in case of failure. In situations where you are successful, you should keep the fire burning and build on the success to ensure that you cut your niche in the market and make a name for yourself among your peers.
