Speaker:

Welcome to the, Bring Your Product Ideas To Life podcast, practical advice,

Speaker:

and inspiration to help you create and sell your own physical products.

Speaker:

Here's your host Vicky Weinberg.

Speaker:

Hi.

Speaker:

So you are getting, um, two podcast episodes from me today.

Speaker:

Uh, you are receiving this extra episode, this little bonus in

Speaker:

your feed, because I wanted to talk to you about my group product

Speaker:

creation program, which opens today.

Speaker:

So the program is to help you, if you have an idea for products and you want to have

Speaker:

it ready to sell by the end of the year.

Speaker:

And so I wanted to do a really short podcast episode to tell you more

Speaker:

about what it is what's included, what the cost of the program is, who

Speaker:

it's for, and then answer some common.

Speaker:

So in terms of what it is, this is a program where I'll take a

Speaker:

small group, maximum five people.

Speaker:

We'll have weekly group calls where I'll talk through everything you need to do

Speaker:

each week to have a physical product ready to sell by the end of this year.

Speaker:

And I'll set you some homework to do in between calls.

Speaker:

So you'll have the weekly calls with me, so you can get super

Speaker:

clear in what you need to do.

Speaker:

Ask any questions.

Speaker:

I maybe share things with a group.

Speaker:

You will have weekly tasks during your own times, keep moving forward and

Speaker:

you'll get a lot of accountability.

Speaker:

So I will help you stay on track.

Speaker:

I'll hope you stay motivated, even when things get difficult.

Speaker:

Um, I will also be massive cheerleader for you as well.

Speaker:

So, and on top of that, you will also get a small supportive group to work

Speaker:

alongside and the opportunity to learn a process that will make launching any

Speaker:

new products, much easier in the future.

Speaker:

So, as I said, there'll be weekly calls that they're going to be on a Monday

Speaker:

and we'll start on the 19th September and run through to 21st of November with

Speaker:

a break in October for the half term.

Speaker:

And every week I'm gonna cover off a step of the process in detail.

Speaker:

I'm gonna answer any questions you have and keep you moving forwards.

Speaker:

As I mentioned, the group is gonna be capped at five this time round to

Speaker:

allow everyone to have plenty of time.

Speaker:

This is the first time running this program, and I'm really keen to make

Speaker:

sure that everyone has lots of time with.

Speaker:

We're not just gonna work on sourcing or creating your products.

Speaker:

Although of course we will spend lots of time doing this.

Speaker:

We're also going to spend time researching your ideal customer.

Speaker:

We're gonna look at the market.

Speaker:

We're gonna look at your competition, where to sell your product, how to price

Speaker:

it and how to market and launch it.

Speaker:

So it's gonna be really comprehensive.

Speaker:

The cost of the program is a one off payment of 395 pounds.

Speaker:

Um, this might seem expensive, but I should say this is significantly cheaper

Speaker:

than other ways of working with me.

Speaker:

So if a comparison, a one hour product creation, power hour

Speaker:

is currently a hundred pounds.

Speaker:

And if I were to do everything I've outlined in the course for

Speaker:

you, it would actually cost you well over a thousand pounds.

Speaker:

I'll be honest.

Speaker:

I haven't even added it up.

Speaker:

It would be a lot.

Speaker:

And this is actually also a reduced price.

Speaker:

As it's mentioned before, this is the first time I'm running in this program

Speaker:

and the cost will go up the next time I offer it, which is likely to be

Speaker:

sometime in early to spring to 2023.

Speaker:

So this is a really good chance to get your products ready to

Speaker:

sell and start making money.

Speaker:

Much sooner, and you get a good discount to, so in terms of who the program's

Speaker:

for, if you have a great idea for a product to sell, but you don't know

Speaker:

exactly what's involved, then I think this would be a good fit for you.

Speaker:

Even if you've created products before, I still think you can benefit from

Speaker:

learning a step by step process, because it will ultimately save you both time.

Speaker:

And.

Speaker:

and I think it's perfect for you if any of the following apply.

Speaker:

So maybe if you force about selling your own products, so you can make

Speaker:

some income working flexibly from home.

Speaker:

So perhaps you are a parent and you're looking to start up something

Speaker:

new, or maybe you've already have a full time role when you want to.

Speaker:

Try doing something on the side.

Speaker:

Um, perhaps you already have a business, maybe it's a service business and you

Speaker:

want to add something new to, to the mix.

Speaker:

Maybe there's a product you feel would really compliment the services you offer.

Speaker:

Um, and on top of that, I guess you need to be prepared to do a little

Speaker:

bit of work every week towards making your product idea a reality.

Speaker:

Now it might not be right for you if you don't have a couple

Speaker:

of hours a week spare, or if.

Speaker:

Or, or if you would prefer to pay someone else to do it for you, and by

Speaker:

the way, there's no judgment here at all.

Speaker:

I completely understand it actually for you.

Speaker:

It may be so much easier to outsource all of this.

Speaker:

If you don't have a small amount of money to invest in product samples, prototypes

Speaker:

and stock, again, this might not be the right time for you because we are, we are

Speaker:

gonna be doing everything in real time.

Speaker:

So from looking for manufacturers, ordering samples, getting prototypes,

Speaker:

ready, um, I mean, we don't know what the lead times will be, obviously until

Speaker:

we get started, but we're gonna try our best to actually go through the

Speaker:

process and get due to the position where you're ready to actually make an order.

Speaker:

Um, so if you don't have a little bit of.

Speaker:

Aside to, you know, to spend on it.

Speaker:

Um, you might wanna think about whether this is the right timing for you.

Speaker:

I still think it could be a great program, but you might want to think about

Speaker:

whether you're ready to do it right now.

Speaker:

and again, I don't think it's for you, if you are looking for like a

Speaker:

get quick, a get rich quick scheme.

Speaker:

Um, and the reason I say this is, yeah, you might get rich from this.

Speaker:

I really, if that's what you want, I hope you do, but this course is more

Speaker:

about teaching you the skills to create something from scratch and making sure

Speaker:

that you understand everything that's involved and created a product to sell.

Speaker:

And that.

Speaker:

You know, you and you do follow out every step.

Speaker:

Um, I cannot guarantee that your product is going to make you an instant, you

Speaker:

know, it's gonna make you rich instantly.

Speaker:

Obviously, if it does, that's marvelous, but that is not what this is about.

Speaker:

Um, you need to be prepared to put the work in, and obviously we can do a lot of

Speaker:

work and to check in whether your product is viable, whether it's something that

Speaker:

people might buy, make it, we're gonna make it the best that we can together.

Speaker:

We are gonna do all of that, but still we, there is.

Speaker:

Guarantees.

Speaker:

So I just wanna caveat.

Speaker:

So, um, I now wanna just cover a few common concerns and my response

Speaker:

to them in case that helps you.

Speaker:

So the first concern is it's expensive.

Speaker:

So as I said earlier, it will be more expensive.

Speaker:

Next time I run it and I have actually made this as affordable as I possibly can.

Speaker:

However, I do know it's still not an insignificant amount of money,

Speaker:

especially as there will be other costs involved in creating a product to sell.

Speaker:

However, it is an investment.

Speaker:

So not only will you have a product to sell at the end of this program, you'd

Speaker:

also learn a process that you can use again and again, to launch new products.

Speaker:

And I do feel that investing in this.

Speaker:

Will actually save you money by helping you get your product on sale sooner,

Speaker:

because there's nothing to figure out.

Speaker:

You don't need to go away and Google things or spend hours on YouTube,

Speaker:

which is exactly what I did six years ago when I was getting started,

Speaker:

because we'll go through the exact steps you need to take every week.

Speaker:

Um, And creating a product to sell is ultimately going to cost you money.

Speaker:

And I can't tell you how much, because it's like how long is a

Speaker:

piece of string, but I genuinely do believe that the time you'll save

Speaker:

doing it within this group will save you time and money in the long run.

Speaker:

If that makes sense.

Speaker:

So the second concern is I don't have enough time.

Speaker:

So I mean, you might be really busy right now, which I totally get.

Speaker:

And maybe you're not sure you want to add something else to your plate, which

Speaker:

is again, completely understandable.

Speaker:

I mean, we all have so much going on and I mean, there are people

Speaker:

that are way busy than I am.

Speaker:

I.

Speaker:

I really know that.

Speaker:

However, if you really want to get your product ready to sell this

Speaker:

year, I do think this is one of the quickest ways you can do it

Speaker:

because there'll be no time wasting.

Speaker:

We're only gonna focus on what you actually need to

Speaker:

do at that moment in time.

Speaker:

There won't be any thinking ahead or worrying about the

Speaker:

next step before we get there.

Speaker:

You'll need to commit a few hours a week on average, to come along to

Speaker:

the calls or listen to the replays.

Speaker:

If you can't make the calls and carry out the task for the week, however,

Speaker:

much of what you can, what must much of what you need to do can be done in

Speaker:

really small bite size chunks of time.

Speaker:

Um, I created my first product round a newborn and a toddler.

Speaker:

So I know it can be done cause that's exactly how I did it.

Speaker:

I had 20 minutes here and there.

Speaker:

I had a list of things to do, and I just used to work through them and

Speaker:

we'll be taking a very similar approach.

Speaker:

So the third concern is it's not the right time for me.

Speaker:

So maybe you're wondering, is this the right time for you to join the program?

Speaker:

You've heard me say I'm gonna run it again.

Speaker:

Next year is next year, a better time for you all I'll say here is

Speaker:

the sooner you launch your product.

Speaker:

The sooner you can sell it, the sooner people can benefit from it.

Speaker:

And the sooner you can make some money from it.

Speaker:

And the cost of this course will go up.

Speaker:

Next time I offer, I offer it and I'm not one for a hard sell.

Speaker:

So I'm not gonna say much about this.

Speaker:

I I'm just gonna leave you with a question, which.

Speaker:

If not now when, and I'm gonna just, as I say, not one for hard

Speaker:

sell, I'm gonna leave that there.

Speaker:

Cause I think only, you know, the answer to that question, the fourth concern is

Speaker:

I don't have an idea for a product and maybe this is something that's concerning.

Speaker:

You.

Speaker:

I'll be honest, you do need some kind of idea or a few ideas, even

Speaker:

if they're not fully fulled to get the most out of this group.

Speaker:

Although if you have listened to me so far, you know, I

Speaker:

think we're 10 minutes in now.

Speaker:

If you've listened this far, I do think it's for a reason.

Speaker:

I think there's.

Speaker:

Definitely an idea inside you.

Speaker:

Um, I do have another podcast episode or a blog post that might help you clarify it.

Speaker:

And if it's something you want to talk through before committing, you could

Speaker:

also book a call in with me and we could have a call before you even get

Speaker:

started and maybe work through your idea a bit more, if that would be helpful.

Speaker:

And you can find out more about that on my website, Vicky weinberg.com.

Speaker:

And the fifth objection is I just don't know if it's right for me.

Speaker:

Um, and that's fair.

Speaker:

You know, you might be thinking, is this program.

Speaker:

You know, the right fit for me at all.

Speaker:

And I definitely don't want you to invest time and money if it's not.

Speaker:

Um, you've heard me say this on this podcast.

Speaker:

If you know me, you will know I'm not a hard sell person.

Speaker:

I will tell you if I think something's not right for you.

Speaker:

Um, and we covered earlier who I think the program is for, I guess I

Speaker:

should just say that you don't need any specific experience or equipment.

Speaker:

So if you thinking it's not the right fit is around you thinking

Speaker:

you don't have the right background, you don't have the right skills.

Speaker:

You don't have the right experience.

Speaker:

Don't worry about any of that.

Speaker:

You don't, you don't need anything.

Speaker:

All you need is some time, some commitment.

Speaker:

Um, I will provide accountability if you provide the rest.

Speaker:

And as I mentioned earlier, you will need a little bit to invest in getting

Speaker:

your products idea off the ground.

Speaker:

And if you are still not sure, just contact me and ask, you can

Speaker:

let me know your situation and anything you're concerned about.

Speaker:

And I'll let you know, truthfully whether I think you'd benefit from

Speaker:

joining and whether I think you'd benefit from joining now, cuz it might be, we

Speaker:

have a chat and think actually, okay.

Speaker:

Maybe you would be better joining next year or at some point in the future.

Speaker:

And I will be really honest with you about.

Speaker:

So I really hope this short episode has told you a little bit more

Speaker:

about the program what's involved.

Speaker:

What's included and answered some of your questions and concerns as well.

Speaker:
