“Without coming across Sarah, my planner would not be here today. Her online course set the stage for my success. Turning my dream into a reality. I sold out of my very first batch, and with Sarah’s guidance we are on track for a bright future.

I am beyond grateful for this resource. It has changed my life for the better. Thank you, Sarah!

What do YOU want to make?

 I know why you’re here. You have an idea for an amazing product, right? Something that will change people’s lives, maybe a planner, a facial oil, a beautifully wearable piece of jewellery or the perfect yoga pants.

All you have to do is make it.

And that’s where it gets tricky. The world is suddenly very different. Your life is suddenly very different. Is it even possible to get a new product designed right now? And made? And into people’s hands?

Feeling lightheaded yet?

This is where Design & Launch Your First Product comes in.

Does any of this sound like you?

 You’re stuck at home but you have an idea for a great new product that you’re pretty sure people are going to love, so how do you use this time to bring it to life?

 You don’t have the leisure or budget for “trial and error” – you’re pretty sure there must be a better way of getting your product made and out there.

  You  can imagine what your product will do and look like, but have no idea HOW to get it made in a world facing COVID-19 or how to talk to printers or manufacturers, if they’re even still operating.

You know your idea is going to help people, but you’re pretty sure there is more to it than you know yet – manufacturing, branding, a website, packaging – how on earth can one person do all of this???

Rationally you know that it is possible to get a new physical product into stores, but how do you actually go about it, and should COVID-19 change your strategy?

Maybe this was a bad idea. You wish you knew what to do first. And then what to do next.

You KNOW your product will bring joy to your customers and change their lives for the better.

What you don’t know is the exact steps for doing this smoothly and intentionally, while staying in control of your start-up budget (and nerves!) in the rapidly changing world we’re facing just now.

Imagine having a roadmap to get you all the way from CONCEPT to CUSTOMER.

What if this was you:

 

  • knowing how to create a best-selling design that will delight your dream customer.
  • knowing exactly where to find the best manufacturers, how to compare them and what to ask for.
  • working with contractors confidently, and able to create a spec for a graphic designer that will save you time and money.
  • understanding the whole process of concept -> design -> manufacture -> delivery -> thrilled customer.
  • feeling calm and in control of all the moving parts of running a product-based business.

This is what you will get with

Design & Launch Your First Product.

Insider access to the exact steps for designing, making and launching a sell-out product.

This is what you will get with

Design & Launch Your First Product.

Insider access to the exact steps for designing, making and launching a sell-out product.

From a dreamy idea to supplying my favourite retailers – worldwide.

When I launched these luxury leather notebooks into Anthropologie, it didn’t happen because I had a bursting address book of insider contacts or 10 years in the industry. But it also didn’t happen by accident.

It happened because I had a SYSTEM.

It’s the system I share with my 1:1 clients, and it’s the system I’m sharing with you today.

Launching a beautiful, useful new product isn’t rocket science. But there is a kind of science to it – a proven formula – for getting it right.

It starts with knowing what to look for in your research – identifying the “secret sauce” that makes your competitors’ sales skyrocket – and what leaves others standing in the dust. 

Next comes creating the perfect product specification – or “spec” – that tells your designer or manufacturer exactly what you want, down to the last detail. 

Finally, crafting a magnetic marketing strategy that puts your creation in front of all the right people and pulls them in with a beautifully told story that they just can’t resist!

After winning awards and launching my designs into top retailers all over the world from Anthropologie to Liberty London, I developed a system. And I’m giving that system to you now. Design & Launch Your First Product.

Let’s Dive In

 MODULE 1

Prepare for Success

The key to any successful business is research. Knowing your market means knowing your product and knowing your customer.

In the first module I’m going to teach you how to lay down the prep work for your product and marketing strategy before you even have a design.

 

  • Identify the trends at play in your industry, and find out what’s coming next.
  • Learn about your dream customer and how to create a product that will make her heart sing!
  • Understand the “secret sauce” factor and zoom in on the thing that nobody else is doing.

 MODULE 2

Design Your Winning Formula

You have a wonderful idea, but how do you get it from your head out there into physical form? The first step is design. I’m going to show you how to put pen to paper in a way that conveys your ideas clearly first to your designer or manufacture and then draws your dream customer in.

 

  • Design your product with a specification, or “spec” that your manufacturer or graphic designer can bring to life for you efficiently and smoothly.
  • Learn how to work productively with a professional designer to bring your vision to life.
  • Create a brand identity that aligns with your product AND your dream customer.

 MODULE 3

Make It Right – First Time

So now you have a design ready to go. What happens next? And what happens after THAT? In this module I’m going to show you how work with a manufacturer and organise all the moving parts of a sell-out new physical product.

 

  • Find and work with your manufacturer with confidence, asking all the right questions and getting exactly what you want.
  • If you are making your product yourself, get the inside line on how to turn this to your advantage, and scale when the time is right.
  • Set a price for your product that will allow your business to flourish.

 MODULE 4

Sell Like A Boss

You’ve done it – nearly! Your product is researched, designed, made and finally in your hands – so now what? In this final module I am going to show you how to build a launch that will put your product in front of the people who will love it as much as you do.

 

  • Get the inside scoop on digital marketing and get your campaign up and running quickly and economically.
  • Build an ecommerce website yourself – for free – that will oil the wheels of your entire online sales strategy.
  • Learn the ins and outs of working with retailers and how to approach them professionally and confidently.
