The Number One Key Factor to Launching a New Product or Service


The secret recipe for a successful business – don’t forget your key ingredient


[USPRwire, Wed Oct 14 2009] What is the one key factor without which you can’t launch a successful new product or service?

Although the Web 2.0 world has created enormous opportunities for savvy B2B companies to launch a new product or service, one item still endures as the key ingredient behind any successful product or service launch.

“Despite our colossal technological gains, you can’t successfully launch a product or service today unless you follow certain traditional practices, besides taking advantage of new techniques,” said Wendy Marx, a B2B public relations expert, Fast Company expert blogger and president of award-winning PR agency Marx Communications. “What’s often thrown away in the race for the new and exciting is the meat and potatoes of a launch -- the proper positioning of a product or service. It never fails to amaze me how many companies are so focused on ‘what’ a product or service can do that they fail to focus on the ‘why’ and ‘how’.”

“You can have the greatest gizmo in the world but if it doesn’t resonate with a buyer, what good does it do?” asked Marx. “What’s essential is crafting your offer so it entices and persuades. – and most importantly speaks to real customer needs.”

Marx will discuss how to do just that at Marx Communications’ business building webcast: “2009 B2B Best PR Practices: Introducing New Products and Services,” 11 am Eastern Time, Wednesday October 28, 2009.
