008: LAUNCH & LEARN

WITH Jim Partner

Jim Partner is president of The Partner Company and an adjunct professor at St. Joseph’s University in their food marketing program. In this episode we talked about how to successfully launch a food or beverage product.

“Launch and Learn” is somewhat of an oxymoron—and it’s the exact opposite of what makes for a successful launch strategy in the food or beverage space.

We discussed:

  • Why most new product launches fail
  • Why launching a food or beverage product is so different than other sector
  • The right research
  • Brand development
  • Your brand story
  • Gaining distribution
  • Consumer support
  • The retailers’ role in this process
