Why run a Product Launch Waitlist?

Grow your Email & Social Audience

Leads can receive early access or discounts when they sign up for your waitlist. A good waitlist means you won't launch to crickets and is critical to app, kickstarter, store, or product launches.

Create Online Engagement

You can choose contest actions that give leads a chance to interact with your brand and move up the waitlist. Encourage them to refer friends to your contest, add their phone number, share posts, and more!

Boost Launch Sales

In our experience between 5-10% of leads captured in a product launch convert to customers during the launch phase. Email special offers to contest participants and add retargeting to expand the reach of your advertising campaigns for launch.

The Simplest Waitlist

You can run one as soon as you have your new launch in the works. You could be live in minutes using one of our easy-to-use templates.
