Launch Diaries

Launch Diaries 006: Day 1 of the Launch: What ACTUALLY happened!

Ultimate Launch Bootcamp starts in FIVE DAYS, but today I have a very special new launch dairies video to share with you. If you’ve ever wondered, “does Alex practice what she preaches about launching?” this video will answer your question! 

Registration for The Ultimate Launch Bootcamp went live last Monday and today you get to see ALL the behind-the-scenes of what it was like for me on the actual launch day! 

It’s been years since I’ve launched a new product and trust me when I tell you, I was excited! I got up at 5:00 am because I was so eager to see how everything would unfold and day 1 did not disappoint. There were highs, there were lows and also some surprises! Truth is, launching can be stressful when it is not done right. From the start, my goal was to not be stressed. You will see some stressful moments in this video but overall, my vibe was pretty zen.

Remember this launch meme post? I literally went through ALL the stages of launching in one day. If you’ve ever launched or planned on launching, you definitely want to give this video a watch. 

Since this is my launch diaries, I get real with you in the video and share more vulnerably than I ever have before! I questioned whether I should include it or not, but I’m committed to being transparent and that’s the whole point of Launch Diaries – so I kept it in!  Watch the video to see what went down.

If you are still on the fence about The Ultimate Launch Bootcamp watching this video will answer some of your questions AND give you an idea of what it is like to launch with me. Don’t mean to toot my own horn but… I’m the most fun launch strategist you will come across! 

It feels surreal that my newest product offering is live. I’ve been working on ULB for months and to see it out in the world and have people signing up means a lot to me.

We are six episodes into the Launch Diaries series and things are getting real the closer I get to launch. Watch the full video here:

Launch Diaries 005: What to do when life happens.

In my latest Launch Diaries episode, I walk you through how I handled preparing for a launch after getting some devastating news. Can you remember a time you had everything planned out, you were excited and ready to go… then life happened?

We are five episodes into the Launch Diaries series and I hope you’re picking up a theme. Are you? 👀. If you aren’t, here’s a hint, it is about your well-being. I cannot stress enough that your launch success is reliant on your well-being and being able to show up and get things done.

Every day while launching you will be presented with two choices:
 1. Do I get stressed?
 2. Do I prioritize my well-being?
The answer to that question will directly impact your launch. Click here to see what my answer was!

I cover so much in this newest video, we meet on a Wednesday afternoon and I don’t stop until Saturday evening. I give you some mini launch preparedness tips for example: 

  1. Write down who your ideal client is and constantly refer to the list.
  2. If you cannot do a major brand refresh before your launch, I recommend updating your profile photo across all platforms.
  3. Spend some time at the end of the week CELEBRATING your wins. Look back on all that you managed to do and give yourself a big pat on the back!
  4.  Before a launch, look around at all your digital assets and ask yourself these questions:
    Is this a true reflection of where my business is at right now?
    Is this a true reflection of how I want to be perceived by a potential client?

I won’t give away everything, go and watch the video to see all that I talked about and showed you in Launch Diaries 005!

Can you believe we are five episodes into the Launch Diaries series?!!! I truly hope you are showing yourself grace. Life will happen, and you get the choice of how you give it meaning. Sending you so much love. Watch the full video here:

Launch Diaries 004: I want to talk about Launch Goals

It is your Biz Bestie and Launch Queen Alex Beadon here, with a new episode in the Launch Diaries series! Want to know my big revenue goal for my upcoming launch?

SPOILER ALERT: It’s my biggest and scariest target to date BUT I feel totally calm and confident, while simultaneously detached from it. I know that harnessing this energy is pivotal to actually making it a reality, and I talk a lot about how I do that in Episode 4.

I have a history of launching so I know what it will take to get me to that figure. I know this is a big and scary goal, but I also know if I want something I must speak it and embody the feeling it gives me. From now until I launch I will name and claim that goal but I will also hold the goal loosely.

So much happens in this episode, it is filled with gems and “AHA” moments for people who will be launching soon, who need a pep talk, or who feel stressed from holding their goals too tightly!

Come spend a day with me as I …

  • Meet with my Operations Manager, Laura, to go over the offerings and updates we are making 
  • Reach out to past Together We Launch members for their testimonial
  • Explain the difference between the Ultimate Launch Bootcamp and Together We Launch 
  • Talk about wellness and listening when your creativity speaks 
  • Go through what my weekly schedule is like 
  • Explain why this is the most prepared I have ever felt for a launch

I love making these Launch Diaries videos and hearing your feedback! Thank you for coming on this journey as I get ready to launch my newest offers. Watch the full video here:

Launch Diaries 003: Time Management & 75 Hard

Launching is an all-encompassing thing, and it cannot be done overnight. If you are planning on launching soon, you must be working on your plan and putting systems in place months before the actual launch date. I know I keep saying this but, I absolutely LOVE making these videos because I get to take you behind the scenes to show you what a day in the life before a launch is like.

The Launch Dairies series offers you a look into all the planning currently taking place as we get ready to release the Ultimate Launch Bootcamp and Together We Launch. This series is perfect if you are an online course creator or if you own a membership site and you are planning on launching soon.

In this latest episode, I start my day at 5:30 am and I don’t stop until 8:00 pm! In this video you will see me:

  • Meet with our Content Manager to go over our Facebook ads performance.
  • Talk about why I spent thousands of dollars investing in myself. 
  • Review my tried and tested launch content plan. 
  • Start day one of the 75 Day Hard challenge. 
  • Go over the email marketing plan for the Ultimate Launch Bootcamp. 
  • Plan my next day, before heading to bed- productivity hack! 
  • Answer my DMs (Yes! When you DM me, I’m the one who actually replies)

I’m so grateful you’re coming on this journey with me through the Launch Diaries series. I love opening my virtual door and letting you in behind the scenes as I prepare for my next amazing launch! 😅   Watch the full video here:

Launch Diaries 002: Creating content: what they don’t tell you.

Two weeks ago, I started a new vlog series called Launch Diaries. In this series, I take you behind the scenes of what is happening in preparation for my upcoming launch. In this latest episode, I am taking you with me as I try to film THREE pieces of video content in one day.

This video is for the person who longs for the day when they are way ahead of their launch content plan; or for the Launcher who is still scrambling to post on their scheduled date and struggles to batch create content. If this sounds like you, then you will resonate HARD with today’s new Launch Diaries episode.

I started the day at 9:00 am and finished at 11:04 pm with the sole mission of creating three pieces of video content. Guess how many actually got filmed? I’m not telling 🤣 you’ll have to watch here to find out.

In this video you’ll see:
• The actual process of setting up to film (look out for a special guest appearance)
• The ugly truth around how time-consuming filming can be
• The best practices I’m learning while getting back into YouTube
• Live examples of me showing myself grace throughout the day
• The process of organizing my business from the back-end

Watch Launch Diaries 002 to get a REAL look into an actual day of content creation in the lead-up to our launch. Watch the full video here:

Launch Diaries 001: A No-Filter Look Behind the Scenes of my Launch

Welcome to my Launch Diaries! In this new series, I take you behind the scenes of what is happening in preparation for my upcoming launch. I decided to do this series because I wanted to create the kind of content that is not only meaningful to me but also beneficial to my community. I am enjoying making these VLOGs because I love the feeling of showing up and taking you with me as I go through my launch process.

You see, I’m currently in the process of planning two launches- YES, you read that right, one launch will lead right into the next. I have never done this before, and I am excited and nervous to see what lessons I’ll learn.

I personally *LOVE* launching because it brings together all my skills and my passions. It takes so much of my energy and I know I have to show up consistently. I consider it a huge personal development process because during a launch you are constantly facing all your fears and doubt. I know that can be scary for some people, I also know being unprepared for a launch makes it even harder- which is what I can help you with!

In this VLOG I take you through my entire Monday, starting from 7:40am to 10:12pm; you see and hear me talk about:

  • How I went from feeling totally prepared to totally overwhelmed
  • Why I feel like the bottleneck of my business
  • What I do to prioritize my mental health + well-being
  • How I prioritize my tasks
  • A call with my Operations Manager and Bestie, Laura
  • New business systems and processes
  • How I prioritize my tasks and a lot more

    The goal of these launch VLOGs is for me to open the door (or camera 😊), let you in behind the scenes, and to literally bring you in as I would my Biz Bestie. It is also a very interactive way for you to get a visual of what goes on behind a launch.

Come with me as we launch together! Watch the first video in the Launch Diaries series and don’t forget to leave me a comment and let me know what you thought of this style of video!
