WHO TF ARE YOU!Hi, I’m Nik. I’m 23, didn’t go to college, and I help brands design, plan, raise
money, and launch brands. Sometimes brands will also ask me to help them scale
their existing brand. Anyways, here are some of my current/past clients:
MY JOBOperating these brands in two main stages: pre-launch / DTC hyper-growth at Sharma Brands, Inc.
In recent cases, we’re in talks to acquire DTC/CPG brands as well, in case that’s interesting to you.
You can send pitches/brands to: email@example.com
“You miss 100% of the product launch opportunities you don’t
(properly plan and) take.:
Balancing supply and demand at launch and in
the beginning stages of growth
● Use Google and ﬁnd every single person
writing about things in-line with what
○ If they’re writing about stuﬀ you’re
into, they’ll probably be into what
○ Write everyone’s name down in a
● Google stalk all of them to ﬁnd out contact
info (email, phone #, etc.) and what friends
you have in common.
○ Use tools like LinkedIn, Instagram,
etc. to ﬁnd mutual connections.
● Try to get an intro, otherwise send a cold
email. You can usually guess their email
address based on where they’re working.
● Make a pitch. Be direct and don’t waste
time with many words. Write something
Sam Parr style.
I’m launching a new brand on April 16th and I’d like to
give you a ﬁrst look under embargo.
It’s called XXX and here are a few cool things about it:
Value prop 1
Value prop 2
Value prop 3
I’ve attached a one-sheeter on our brand. If you’re
interested in learning more about it, lmk - happy to send
more info and invite you to our launch event I’m hosting
at [venue] on [date].
I’m Nik and I work at @ReadySetJudy, a company that
helps Americans be more prepared in natural disasters..
We just launched our newest product, The Safe, and I’d
love to send one to you on me. to see what you think of
it. It comes out on April 16th, but we’d love to send you
on ahead of time.
Lmk what you think
● Make a list of inﬂuencers that align with your
brand, not because they have followers or you
like their content, but because their
values/goals/ethics align with what your brand
○ Start making a spreadsheet. Make
columns for name, @handle, address,
tracking #, post (yes/no), veriﬁed
(yes/no), coupon code, URL, & notes.
● Put together a small DM and email (they can be
the same) to send to them.
● If you want them to make a video, give them an
inﬂuencer cheat sheet.
● Use the tracker to track the inﬂuencer’s progress
with your brand, and also make notes on which
ones over-index with engagement — those are
the ones you want to do more with.
As the brand, you want to give them some tips:
● How to ﬁlm (lighting, sound, etc.)
● What value props to hit & why
● How to package up the video & send it back
● It gives you more touchpoints to your consumers
○ sharable content
● It becomes great content to keep your brand top
of mind with customers (especially if you sell a
● When you drive paid traﬀic to good content, the
CPC is much cheaper (~$0.03/click) than sending
traﬀic straight to a landing page ($2-4/click).
● You own the whole funnel (and have an addressable
retargeting audience that you build along the way).
○ This becomes useful when you crack the
ability to create highly shareable content.
● It let’s you tell your own narrative/story but still
in a third-person tone of voice.
● In addition to all your normal email ﬂows you
have going, you want to have some awesome
product launch emails queued up.
○ Use videos, GIFs, press logos (if you can),
○ Your copy and creative should give your
email recipient everything they would
need to go brag to their best friends
about YOU and your brand.
● If you’re launching to an existing customer base
with over 100,000 emails, then focus on
segmenting your customers by their LTV to score
bigger checkouts where you can.
3 main channels:
If not advertising, at least the
Creative is your main focus: photos, videos, and copy
Good rule of thumb numbers for creative:
○ 5-8 DR-focused product videos (unboxing, comparisons, highlighting with copy, etc.)
○ 2-3 lifestyle videos (more human focus)
○ 2-3 inﬂuencer/UGC style videos
■ Ideally run these through the inﬂuencer’s accounts
○ Long-form content
■ Sponsored content
○ 1-2 still images highlighting oﬀer in the image itself
○ 2-4 videos (variations of the prospecting videos, but calls out the pricing/oﬀer earlier)
○ Give the consumer the bullet points to brag to their friends
○ Sell them the beneﬁt of your product, what they get out of it, not the product
■ People who focus on the product have to constantly discount their products to earn
Creative is your main focus: copy & landing pages
You have three main types of search ads you can run: branded, non-branded, and conquesting.
Branded = going after your own brand. If you are JUDY, you’re bidding for JUDY, JUDY Kit, etc.
Non-branded = going after terms related to your brand/products. I.e. - Emergency kit, preparedness kit, etc.
Conquesting = going after your competitors. If you’re hims, you’re bidding on Roman, and vise-versa.
For launch day, focus on setting up branded search ads for your product.
Focus on the product and keywords around it, as it relates to your brand.
Drive your search prospects to a landing page that’s heavily conversion focused. Search is a high-intent
channel, versus Facebook, which may require some more customer nurturing.
Creative is your main focus: copy
For your copy, cram as many value props as you can into your copy.
Be eﬀicient of the extra real estate you get with search (extensions) and smart with the character limit of
Pro tip - include a coupon code in your headline. A lot of times you will register conversions (you can
attribute with the coupon code) and sometimes they don’t click. You also save the delta between your
discount and whatever you would pay an aﬀiliate site that would’ve provided a coupon code.
Creative is your main focus: landing page
This is now where the ball is fully in your court to close the deal. You made your pitch on Google or they’ve
heard good things, which is why they searched you in the ﬁrst place.
On your landing page, you need to create a page that answers every question they have, before they have
the question in the ﬁrst place. Think about if you are an assistant to an a-list celebrity, you have to be 2
steps ahead of them.
Formats: hero page (next slide), listicles, comparicles, quizzes, etc.
Creative is your main focus: landing page
Hero landing page general ﬂow:
Press bar / brag bar
First section of value props
Quote/Value add/Payment plan section
Second section of value props
Third section of value props
