Want More Sales? What You Need to Know About Beta Testing
Have you ever heard of a beta test?
It’s okay if you haven’t… years ago, I thought that if you were going to launch something, you would simply create it, put it out in the world, and people would buy it. That’s it!
But there’s another way to launch a new product or service… and that’s to beta test it BEFORE you release it publicly.
>>A beta test is when you allow a small group of people to test your new “thing”--whether it’s to go through your latest service, take a course before it’s released, or try a new product–typically at a discounted price, in exchange for their feedback on it.
In the Fall of 2021, the Social Curator Team and I decided to host a beta test for our brand new digital course, S.O.S. Selling on Social.
In this episode, you’ll learn why we decided to host a beta test, hear behind the scenes clips from our team as we went through the process, and learn how to create one yourself.
