Frequently asked questions

What clients usually engage your Product Launch Consultants?

We work with clients from all over the world. Our clients range from enterprise and corporate clients to companies that are backed by Private Equity or Venture Capital funds. Furthermore, we work directly with Family Offices, Private Equity firms, and Asset Managers. Most of our enterprise clients have dedicated Corporate Development, M&A, and Strategy divisions which are utilizing our pool of Product Launch talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

How is Fintalent different?

Fintalent is not a staffing agency. We are a community of best-in-class Product Launch professionals, highly specialized within their domains. We have streamlined the process of engaging the best Product Launch talent and are able to provide clients with Product Launch professionals within 48 hours of first engaging them. We believe that our platform provides more value for Corporates, Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, and Family Offices.

Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

Which skills and expertise do your Fintalents have?

The Fintalents are hand-picked and vetted Product Launch professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our Product Launch consultants’ experience ranges from 3+ years as analysts at top investment banks and Strategy consultancies, to later career C-level executives. The average working experience is 6.9 years and 80% of all Fintalents range from 3-12 years into their careers.

Our Product Launch consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Product Launch talent pool stand out is the fact that they have technical backgrounds in over 2,900 industries.

How does the screening and onboarding of your Product Launch talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my Product Launch consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk.

Everything you need to know about Product Launch

A product launch, or “launch” for short, is the first time a new product enters the market. A company that is launching its product will often work on an extensive marketing campaign to introduce it to potential customers. This process involves months of preparation, including creating collateral materials and prototypes. The launch can be successful if it generates enough revenue or leads to large sales increases over previous years’ sales of the same products. However, if the launch fails due to poor marketing strategy or insufficient initial demand, there’s no guarantee that future sales of the items will be successful either.

Before launching your products or services, you should be fully prepared. You need to think about the plan of the launch; doing this will help you come up with a strategy to successfully launch. There are different types of launches including: private, public, and exclusive events. Successful launches require planning and execution; once your launch is prepare for success by following these six tips.

  1. Know Your Audience. By knowing your audience, you will allow the product or service you are launching to speak directly to that audience or market segment. This is essential because it will allow you to tailor your message for a particular niche and will better ensure success.
  2. Research Your Market Segment. Doing a little research on your target market will allow you to determine what strategies and tactics should be used in a successful launch. Research the demographics, psychographics, and psychographic variables of your target market to ensure that you are targeting all of the crucial elements necessary for market penetration. You may not know what your target market is, so research and identify their wants and needs and how you can provide a solution.
  1. Positioning. Positioning involves two concepts: brand positioning and the perceptual map. Brand positioning entails knowing the product positioning in the eyes of the consumer. This ultimately leads to good decision making about public relations (PR), customer service, marketing, pricing, and other factors that will ultimately lead to success in your launch. The perceptual map determines how others perceive you; it is important because it determines how effectively your company will communicate with consumers and other companies.
  1. Patience. Success in a product launch requires patience on many levels. This includes patience with the development of the product, marketing, and business growth. It also involves patience on the part of your customers and suppliers; you need to be patient with all their needs and concerns throughout the launch process. Do not get impatient when people don’t respond to your efforts or when they give you negative feedback; this will only lead to bad decisions that can potentially ruin a successful launch. You need to practice patience throughout the whole process because it will ultimately allow for a successful launch.
  1. Persistence. The launch process involves many trials and errors as it can be a long and tedious process. You need to be persistent throughout the entire process as no one will launch a product or service on the first try. There will be times when you want to give up due to the countless obstacles that you may face, but you need to remain persistent and ultimately, it will pay off.
  1. Patience. The launch of your product or service takes time; there is no instant success with product launches. It can take months or even years; this is why patience is an important factor in successful launches. During the launch process, it is important to be patient with your customers and suppliers. You need to be patient with their concerns, needs, and requests; you will need this patience because it will help you develop long-term relationships that can positively impact your business for years to come.

When launching a product, you will face different challenges; however, with the right strategy and patience, you can overcome these challenges and ultimately achieve success. By following these six tips, you will be able to successfully launch your product or service on time without any problems. Beyong merely following a template, business owners can look to Fintalent, the hiring and collaboration platform for tier-1 M&A and Strategy professionals to hire some of the best Product launch consultants.
