You only have one chance to make the most of one of the biggest moments of your online campaign. A successful launch offers an opportunity for huge gains—and failure to take full advantage of the moment can set the tone for the rest of your campaign. In this workshop, we’ll break down the components to a successful launch: how to set up tech infrastructure, coordinate partners, run ads, get a splash page or a website live and plan an email calendar. Join us and you’ll be set up for victory from Day 1.

This training is for all skill levels. Participants should attend with a goal of understanding the machinery behind a successful launch.
