Live Launch vs. Evergreen: Which One Is Better? — Ep. 154
You’ve heard about this idea of making money while you sleep and it sounds pretty magical. So now you’re thinking, why both with a whole big live launch when you can just make your paid offer always available for people to purchase any time they want…including while you’re sleeping? It’s a question I get asked a lot as my clients get ready to put out their first or next paid offer. With everything that goes into a successful launch, it can seem like it would just be wayyyy easier to skip it all and go evergreen. So how about we create a pros and cons list for both options so you can decide which one would be best for you? As someone who has had many evergreen courses, ebooks, and workshops AND also done A LOT of live launches, I’ve got a lot to say about it, so let’s dive in!
“What it seems like and what I think a lot of people in the online space are making it appear to be, isn’t the reality for all people.” - Shawn Mynar
“Because of the environment, you will make more sales during a live launch than just by having it be evergreen and always available." - Shawn Mynar
“If you want a live launch that is a success, planning ahead is going to be key.” - Shawn Mynar
“Do a live launch to create excitement and awareness.” - Shawn Mynar

You've heard about this idea of making money while you sleep. And it sounds pretty great. So now you're thinking, why bother with a whole big live launch? When you can just make your paid offer always available for people to purchase anytime they want, including while you're sleeping? It's a question I get asked a lot as my clients get ready to put out their first or next paid offer. With everything that goes into a successful launch, it can seem like it would just be way easier to skip it all and go evergreen. So how about we create a pros and cons list together for both options, so you can make the best decision for you and your business. As someone who has had many evergreen courses, ebooks and workshops, and also done a lot of live launches, I've got a lot to say about it all. So let's dive in. Hey, hey there, friends.
Welcome back to the unstuck entrepreneur podcast. So happy to have you here checking out the Show checking out this episode. It's a it's a big episode. It's a loaded episode and a topic that I get asked about a lot. And I have a lot to say about this. I've been wanting to do this episode for a really, really long time. And it just didn't ever seem like the right time, because we had a lot to discuss before we got to this point. And that's why I did this whole series that we're currently in the middle of all about launches, so that we could get to this point where I could talk about the difference between a live launch and an evergreen situation in your business and what the pros and cons are of each and how to decide which one is best for you. We had a lot to get to up until this point. So if you haven't tuned in to the other episodes about launching prior to this, so it would be the two episodes before this one. This, it's really important to kind of bring you up to speed to the point where you will understand everything that we're going to talk about today. So this is episode three of this series all about launching in your business. Go back, listen to episode 152, I believe 153. And now this is 154. And you will be fully involved in this whole series we're doing so super excited for today's episode, because as I've mentioned several times already, we are going to talk all about the difference between doing this live launch versus having your paid offers be always available, kind of in this evergreen mode. So you can decide which one is best for you. I will also be sharing some examples of how all of this works in my business, both the Evergreen aspect, and

Behind The Scenes Of My Most Recent Launch — Ep. 152
One of the biggest hurdles I see new and wannabe online business owners face is the fear of launching. Actually doing a proper, live, promotional period for their paid offer. As I’m recording this episode, I’m right in the middle of a live launch for my paid offer, the Signature Program Bundle, and I thought it would be fun and hopefully helpful to take you behind the scenes of this launch to show you how I plan, prepare, and execute a successful launch. Let’s dive in!
“You have the power to decide how your launch feels for you and goes for you.” - Shawn Mynar
“You need to entice people further to put their name and email address and commit to that event. It does take a little more than throwing something up.” - Shawn Mynar
“I know the right people will come into my paid offer when it’s the right time for them.” - Shawn Mynar
‘As you can see there’s a lot to it and not in a bad way or in a way that makes it stressful or scary or anything but there’s just stuff you gotta do, there’s stuff you need to plan out, there are things you need to know and it really does help to have that support and guidance along the way.” - Shawn Mynar

Hey, hey there, friends. Welcome back to unstuck entrepreneur, so grateful for all of you. And the support you bring to the show means the world to me. So happy to have you here, especially today, because this is really going to kick off an entire series that we are doing on the podcast all about launching, there's so much to talk about when it comes to doing a real proper launch, for your business and for your paid offers, that we cannot put it all into one episode, I would definitely lose my voice by then. And it just it's going to be fun to do a little bit of a series and kind of chunk, everything we need to talk about up into specific topics. So just so you're prepared. Here's what you can expect today. This episode is going to be all about the mechanics, kind of the actual physical, what needs to be done to launch in your business. And I will show you how I plan everything out for my launches so that they go off smoothly. And also they're not stressful, they're actually really fun and something I look forward to doing in my business. So that is what is in store for this episode. And then next episode, we're going to talk about the mindset and energy requirements have a launch, which is just as if not more important than what we're going to talk about in this episode, because you cannot do one without the other.

Hey, hey there, friends. Welcome back to unstuck entrepreneur. So, so happy to have you here. So glad to be back. I don't know if you all noticed. But I did take a week off of the podcast last week, because I had COVID. And it actually worked out that when I recorded the episode for the week prior, basically that day is when my wife found out that she had COVID, which meant I probably had it too. And it actually took another two days for me to get a positive test. But, you know, I still felt fine that day. And then basically the following week, was kind of a disaster in terms of how I felt. But then by Friday, which is when I normally record these episodes, I felt pretty good again, but my lungs didn't. And my voice wasn't quite there. And there was just still a lot of coughing. And my lungs were really struggling to keep up with air. And so it just didn't make sense to record an episode because you guys wouldn't have enjoyed hearing that. So I decided to take the week off and just really regain my energy and get my lungs back to where they are used to being and my voice and everything like that. So here I am. And yeah, feeling totally back to normal. I've been hiking this week and working out and, you know, obviously working and doing all that kind of stuff. So basically just took it easy for about a week, I still did work, I was working from bed a lot, which I like to do, even when I'm feeling great. It's just fun to work from bed sometimes. So I did that. And you know, took it easy with obviously my workouts that wasn't really happening. And just also with the amount of work I was doing, giving myself that space to rest and re
