Letter regarding new product: Product and trade issues

New products create their own problems. There is a learning curve for everyone involved when a new product goes on the market. The possible problems are everything from how to use the new product to warranties and servicing, to support and safety issues.

When marketing a new product to your customers, you need to give them as much information as possible, as clearly as possible.

Your information must be effective.

Most of the problems are trade issues covered by law.

Product issues

The simple way to handle product issues is to use a combination of materials for information. If you've seen how most software is marketed, you'll have noticed that the sales materials always contain references to built in information and online support.

Trade issues

Always advise your clients in advance of any new issues in relation to a new product. Anything which involves new information needs to be notified so the client can study up on it and ask questions if required.

The example below is of a wholesaler advising his retailers of a new massage chair coming on sale the following month.
