Hello. I wonder if any of you has ever launched a new product? I hope to at the end of the year. Whilst I perfect my design, I have obtained a trademark. I am having a website built, but I'm not really sure what should come next! I'd love a chat with someone who has any experience of product launches. I will buy you wine!!!

Depends on the type of product but - Finding suppliers/getting prototypes developed, finance plans, marketing plans, logistics of shipping, finding retailers if that's an avenue you can go down. All of these should be coming before the website.

If you have not yet paid for your website design, then check out Shopify. They have hundreds of templates and do all the work for you, including taking payments and then passing them onto you. I have a Shopify website and it costs me only $29 per month, no website building costs.

Aquaint yourself with Instagram. You are nothing in this modern world without an Instagram account.

Can you tell us what type of product it is? No need to be too specific if you don't want to smile.

Hello. Thank you all very, very much for your suggestions. It is much appreciated. I apologise wholeheartedly for not responding sooner, but for some reason, I only just got a message telling me I had replies. I have a Trademark but am still a bit nervous about announcing what it is, I can tell you it is something unique, practical and fun for children with an age range of 2 - 8. I am on the third fix of my design and am hoping this will be my last before I am ready for production. It will be solely made in the UK and I hope to sell it through an e-commerce website. I have seen some inexpensive but really intelligent accounting software, but I need to do more research on that yet. If anyone has experience of software that they think is amazing, I'd love to hear about it so I can have a look. Thanks again to all of you. Lotty
