Ep 028: Key Lessons Learned From My Recent Launch with Bobby Klinck

By Bobby Klinck | YOG Podcast

May 29

This episode is going to be completely different from any I’ve done in the past. Instead of having a guest today, I’m going to give you an autopsy of the Online Genius Membership Site launch I went through earlier this month. While I had some good results, I also made a lot of mistakes, and I think you can learn some valuable lessons from my experience.

So I’m going to share it all and give you a complete behind-the-scenes view of what doing a launch is really like. Listen in to hear the whole story, from what led me to launch the way I did and the mistakes I made, to the things I did well and key takeaways that will help anyone who plans to do a launch in the future.
