My name is Dave and today I’m launching a pre-workout supplement.

Right, so where do I start? Well if you’re launching a product you need to look at a couple of goals. The first goal would be brand awareness.

Secondly, obviously, you need sales so that’s proof of concept. You need to sell your product.


In this day and age, with a lot of HIIT, interval training, pre-gym sort of workout, it could be both male and female, but I would say we’re looking at a 25-35 audience.

I want to launch a product that is tested, proven by science, I don’t want any of these faddy marketing products. I’d say high income is where we’d be looking. First things what you want to do is try it out in a high densely populated area then look to push that out further.

So what about features?

Features tell benefits sell.
There’s no BS. It’s medically no bullsh*t.

Then we’re looking at the USP, which I still think would be around these benefits. Pushing them further, for goal-oriented people, and you get that one further rep out that you’re looking to get.

Then thinking about the brand concept: Fuelling fitness, brand concept name.


PR strategy, you’re going to have to work with influencers, people like Mike Matthews out in the US. People who talk about this no BS supplement kind of marketing.
PR: influencers on the site – can be expensive?


you’ll need to produce content. You’ll need to bring people in on engaging content into your website or any properties you’re looking to advertise this product on. It will need to be well researched, google shopping.

Thing is if you do all these initial things right, and you get everything here right, what you can do then is you can look at pulling people in a retargeting flow, to bring people back up the funnel, interested and purchasing more.

The Elevator Pitch

So my brand is Fuelling Fitness. My goal is to create brand awareness around it and sell more products.

I’m looking to target:

  • 20-35-year-olds
  • London, home counties area
  • High income, well people that are looking for people to push them further when working out.

Really, the whole feast around this is it’s all medically tested, there’s no BS, boosts fatigue people, and really the magic is all going to come in the distribution.

This is where I brought in the funnel, creating awareness from PR, display advertising, working with publishers, looking to engage people with well-researched content, medical, benefits of this products, how can it push people further in certain areas.

And this is when you bring in acquisition, and you start to sell more products through PPC and remarketing.

To me? That’s nice and tight.
