This is not just a book. It’s a license to print money. (Okay, maybe I’m overstating it a bit, but not by much.) I used Jeff’s Product Launch Formula to create a seven-figure-plus business I absolutely love. And unlike some successful entrepreneurs, he holds nothing back. It’s all here—a proven strategy, real- world examples, and step-by-step instructions—everything you need to create a business you’re crazy about while making an incredible living doing it. —Michael Hyatt, New York Times Bestselling Author and Founder of PlatformUniversity.com
The title of this book, LAUNCH, is uniquely appropriate because Jeff Walker is the pioneer innovator of online marketing launches, as well as the online marketing industry’s foremost teacher. The careers of thousands of successful online entrepreneurs have already been launched by Jeff’s extraordinarily practical concepts, structures, strategies, tools, and processes. LAUNCH is a must read for all marketers---the go-to handbook for making money selling anything on the Internet. —Dan Sullivan, President and Founder of The Strategic Coach
It took me four years to grow my first business to $5 million. Using Jeff Walker’s product launch model, I was able to hit $5 million in sales---in a brand- new business niche---my first year. Jeff has created one of the most important innovations in marketing in the last 100 years. —Eben Pagan, Founder of Hot Topic Media and Serial Online Entrepreneur
Business is a succession of launches---new products, projects, promotions, incentives, partnerships, etc. To succeed you’ll need to master the launch. To do so you’ll want to study the master of the launch---Jeff Walker. Ten thousand hours and millions of dollars later, he has figured it out. Read this book and shorten your path to profits dramatically. —Darren Hardy, Publisher and Founding Editor of SUCCESS and New York Times Bestselling Author of "The Compound Effect: Jumpstart Your Income, Your Life, Your Success."
This book is a must read for everyone trying to influence and change people’s lives in a positive way. It’s a GREAT business book, but it’s also much more than a business book. I plan to get a copy for every Hay House author. —Reid Tracy, CEO, Hay House, Inc.
Even though I am a 30+ year veteran in direct marketing, this book made me realize how much there is still to learn about being an excellent marketer . . . and a human being as well. As one of the heroes among heart-based entrepreneurs on the planet, Jeff has written possibly the most important book about both direct response marketing and entrepreneurship in the last decade.
Anyone who thinks the word “launch” refers only to online marketing hasn’t been paying attention to direct response marketing over the last five decades (or more). And anyone who thinks that Jeff Walker hasn’t earned the right to own the word “launch” in today’s marketing landscape also hasn’t been paying attention.
LAUNCH is a must read for anyone in business today---experienced or novice—who needs to get their product or service out to the world . . . and wants to do it with integrity and power. —Brian Kurz, Executive Vice President, Boardroom, Inc.
The first day of launching a new business has always been a stressful, nerve-racking time. But since applying Jeff Walker’s ideas, we’ve turned these “launch days” into moments of celebration, success, and amazing cash flow as our businesses have managed to pull in incredible customer demand on day one. This has added millions to our bottom line and raised the valuation of our company immensely as day-one sales trumped all expectation. —Vishen Lakhiani, Founder and CEO, Mindvalley
This isn’t a book as much as it is a recipe and a blueprint for changing you and your family’s financial fortune. It breaks down everything from the Seed Launch, where you start completely from scratch, all the way up to the mega JV Launches that can bring in millions in a matter of days. The process definitely takes some work, but if you get the process down and use it, then you can have nearly instant sales and momentum in your business. Not only will following Jeff’s formula make your success more possible, it will make it more probable. So buy Jeff’s book---after all, he’s the guy who sold a million dollars of his product in a single hour! LAUNCH has both of our full endorsements, and it can change your business and your life. —Joe Polish and Dean Jackson, ILoveMarketing.com
When it comes to Internet marketing, Jeff Walker is a bonafide genius. Now with LAUNCH, he maps out exactly how you can successfully market any product or service online. A must read for all serious entrepreneurs. —Randy Gage, Author of the New York Times Bestseller, "Risky Is the New Safe."
This book isn’t just for people who want to make a lot of money in their businesses really fast. This is for people who want to live their best life, doing what they were born to do, and serving the world. I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to make a bigger impact along with a much bigger income. —Christian Mickelson, CEO of CoachesWithClients.com
If I could say one word about Jeff Walker and LAUNCH, it would be: IMPACT. If you are looking for a huge positive impact on your business, your family, or in life, then LAUNCH is a must read. Don’t walk to get a copy . . . run, and let Jeff Walker help you create a great legacy for those around you. —JB Glossinger, Founder of MorningCoach.com
In the early days of Web marketing, it was complete freaking chaos online. We knew we had unprecedented access to vast global audiences, but we lacked a simple, elegant way of introducing new products and closing sales.
Enter Jeff Walker . . . who arrived well-versed in old-school direct marketing, coupled with a unique early-adopter’s grasp of the potential online. He explained his idea to me, early on, as simply turning a damn good sales letter on its side . . . and using every aspect of this powerful new technology to attract prospects, build their desire to the breaking point, and then transform their lives by fulfilling on the promises that drove them nuts over an extended process of education, sharing, and giving away teasingly good samples.
The launch formula he perfected produced results for us far beyond any of our other online marketing efforts . . . time after time after time. It was stunning. And fun. And elegant in its simplicity. Jeff codified the way online launches will be conducted for generations to come. —John Carlton, Legendary Copywriter and Author of "The Simple Writing System" and "The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Getting Your Shit Together ."
I’ve known Jeff Walker for several years---I’ve watched the way he does business. It’s 100% based on building value, and that’s exactly what this book does. In LAUNCH he gives you the proven recipe for launching your product or business. Jeff teaches from experience, and he teaches with huge heart and great humility. His strategies are both revolutionary and incredibly effective. —Janet Bray Attwood, New York Times Bestselling Coauthor of "The Passion Test."
I was lucky enough to spend a day in a small room with just a few dozen people listening to Jeff Walker teach his heart out. Every person in the room was riveted to their chair as he taught for nine straight hours. The strategies I learned that day completely transformed my business and my idea of what was possible. In LAUNCH, you get the strategies Jeff taught that day, and more. This is the business book of the year, and I’m personally buying a copy for all my top coaching students. —JJ Virgin, CNS, CHFS, New York Times Bestselling Author of "The Virgin Diet" and "The Virgin Diet Cookbook."
People trust Jeff Walker because Walker has consistently for years been on the forefront of producing results online with his Product Launch Formula. Now he has distilled his system into LAUNCH so anyone can learn it, implement it, and launch it! It’s almost unfair, how easy he just made it for you. I won’t launch another book without using LAUNCH. Jeff Walker created the road map, and I plan to use it. —David Bach, Nine-time New York Times Bestselling Author and Creator of the "FinishRich" Book Series
I’ve read a lot of marketing and business books . . . and most of them spend 300 pages to get to one worthwhile idea. This is a serious, practical, comprehensive guide for the real world business owner. If you’ve ever wondered how to start your business or find more customers online, LAUNCH will help get you where you want to go. —Sonia Simone, Cofounder of Copyblogger Media
What Jeff Walker teaches in LAUNCH is vital for modern marketing success. You don’t need more tactics or tools; you need smart strategy, and that’s exactly what this book delivers. —Marie Forleo, Founder of B-School, Award-Winning Host of MarieTV, MarieForleo.com
This is the most important book ever written on online marketing. LAUNCH will become the source document and sole blueprint used by millions of businesses and entrepreneurs to promote their brands and products in the digital age. I’ve personally used Jeff Walker’s methodologies to start from scratch and launch five brands, each of which hit one million dollars in revenue in less than 12 months. This book is invaluable, and Jeff is the modern marketing savant the world has been waiting for. —Brendon Burchard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Millionaire Messenger

Having said that, Jeff has ideas that may work. I'm not sure I'd use them, but they may work. His general premise is to compile a good list and give the users good content. Some of it for free before you hit them with your offer. Get some feedback and tweak it. To do this there are some general steps to follow. I believe I read this in a prior review: Jeff glances over the part about creating a good list. What if you don't have a good list? Well, that's easy! Just start calling on your social media friends to subscribe to your offering! Way back in my day when I started selling we called this 'The Friends and Family Plan'. Did you ever have a friend come to you because they just started selling insurance? Yeah, it's like that. The thing is, I like my friends, or at least most of them. So, unless you have a good list you're starting in the hole. There is another option: Jeff does give you some ideas on creating your lists. I'm not sure this is the method I would follow, but it's there. Build your lists and come back to this book when you've built up a solid base.
I've read a ton of books on these types of subjects. Believe it or not, if you're into this type of marketing your may want to read the 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris. It's the same idea, but I liked it better. Here's the other thing that I've learned along the way: You don't have to do all of this yourself. It literally took me years to figure this out. There are plenty of freelance sites out there that you can source literally every step of this process for real cheap, and you take on a management role saving yourself a ton of time with better results.
In short, I'm not saying I hated it. I'm merely saying that I most likely won't be using Jeff's ideas, nor will I be signing up for his Product Launch Formula.
Update -- It looks like anything but 5-star reviews are getting pushed down by quick one or two sentence reviews that add nothing. Something is definitely going on here... Buyer beware
If you want the real ABC 123 step by step, then OF COURSE you have to buy his online courses * UPSELL ALERT * , to actually be able to do a real launch correctly. ALso, he trys to make you think you can do it, but if you dont have skills in a specific field and are not a master of a specific field, you wont be able to sell anyone information of any kind
After digitizing language content I had from all over the world, I decided to start learning about how to reach more with my talents, skills and content. Over the last three years, I have happened upon some amazing people doing just that. They are helping people transform their lives, learn new skills and work for themselves. As I started to dig a bit deeper, the people that have stood out to me most or made a real difference for me personally all had one common denominator- Jeff Walker. Marie Forleo, Denise-Duffield Thomas, Amy Porterfield, Ben Curtis (Notes in Spanish) and Susan Peirce-Thompson have all mentioned using some of Jeff's knowledge to share their message with many and turn their dreams into reality. I should note that these people are from completely different types of businesses with different messages. Marie Forleo is an author with a wildly successful program for business newbies. Amy Porterfield teaches social media marketing, Ben Curtis teaches people real Spanish, Denise-Duffield Thomas teaches women about money and abundance and Susan Peirce-Thompson teaches people about food addiction, weight management and health. Great strategies that you can use over and over to grow your business.
The beauty in Jeff's material is that most resources on inbound marketing and lead generation and nurturing do not provide a concise predictable formula with key messages you should deliver and when. Jeff chooses an alternate route and spends most of his time giving you a step-by-step process.
Additionally I found it entirely new to hear the language of launching every product and spacing things out so that you are continuously bringing new value to your customer base. I have traditionally believed in stocking your catalog and then building huge content and advertising efforts to drive traffic to the shopping cart. Reading this book will forever change the way I market and help others market too.
That said, the reason I couldn't get the book 5 stars is because most of the stories in the book are fairly boring. They're not meaty enough in detail to give you any kind of insights. For the most part they are just doses of case study proof and encouragement. That's how I would define most of the material in this book. Really good insights shrouded in tons of fluffy stories.
In fact I bet the entire book could be summarized into a single sheet of printer paper. That's fantastic because it means the formula is simple, but the reading quality wasn't as high as I hoped.
It was more than worth the money.
