What is a product launch announcement?

What makes iPhones the most-awaited product of the year? We know there are smartphones out there that are not worse than Apple's products (dear Apple developers, I beg your pardon), but most people don’t pay close attention to those products’ releases and updates.

Of course, one may think that Apple is so awaited because of the power of its brand name. However, this brand was not always this famous. But their first release was widely discussed. They owe their success to a well-thought-out product launch campaign and a proper new product launch announcement email.

Famous brands evoke anticipation and desire in prospects to buy and use their products. How? We’ll share examples of the best product launch campaigns run by world-famous companies.

What is a product launch announcement?

The product launch announcement is a set of activities aimed at promoting a new product.

Hopefully, your new or upgraded product’s features meet customers’ needs and even exceed their expectations.

Prior to promoting and announcing your up-and-coming product, try it out, and define its pros and cons. And be honest with the target audience during the whole announcement campaign.

5 emails for announcing a new product via newsletters

You will need to build a product launch email sequence to keep the target audience updated and keep them interested in your product. Here is an example of an effective email sequence:

  1. Teaser email for product launch.
  2. Product launch announcement email.
  3. Product announcement email with the Pre-Order option.
  4. Product launch email.
  5. Follow-up email after product launch.

Let's take a closer look at these emails:

#1 — Teaser email or product launch

The first email — a teaser email — is to inform recipients about the upcoming launch. In this way, you build anticipation. Here, you can mention a few unique features that your product possesses, or may just say that something huge is coming. Sharing with specifying the launch date is optional at this stage.

#2 — Product launch announcement email

The second one is to update your users. Remind them about the features you mentioned in a previous email and add a new one.

Or share some information on your product if you have not done this in the previous email. Be sure to include some photos of the product.

#3 — Product announcement email along with the Pre-Order option

In the third email, after you have revealed the product’s main options, add photos and the “Pre-order” button in this email.

Many staunch fans would love to be the first to own your product.

#4 — Announcing that the product has been launched

The fourth product launch email is to inform recipients that the product has been released. Here you explain to customers how they can get this product.

#5 — Follow up email after product launch

No matter how ardently your customers had been waiting for your product, some still might have missed the new product release email. Remind them they can still buy your product.

Important to note for a successful product launch email sequence:

If you start the new product announcement email campaign a few months/year prior to the release date, then you are welcome to extend your sequence to 4-6 emails.

20 effective product launch email examples to boost sales

We hope these samples will get you inspired to build your powerful product launch emails.

Example 1. Keep customers intrigued till the last moment — Lamborghini product launch

This famous automotive brand knows how to maintain customers’ interest without saying a word about what they are going to launch. Instead, they are inviting their brand enthusiasts to an event where they are going to share the details of the new product. Even the image in this new product release email sample does not say anything about the future launch.

Product Launch Email _ Example

(Source: Email from Lamborghini)

Example 2. Give your brand fans early access to the new products — Athleta

Allow early access either to those customers who buy from you more often than other users, or to those who downloaded your app, just like Athlet did it.

Early access announcement email

(Source: Email from Athleta)

Example 3. Let your staunch customers be the first to know — Adidas new product announcement

In this email, Adidas promised to notify customers about the product release a few hours before they send over the product launch announcement email to the entire contact base.

Example 4. Add some mystery to your emails — Mercedes Benz feature announcement

You don't really need to show the product you are about to launch in a product launch announcement email. Show its prototype.

Тew product launch message sample_Use Teaser Emails to Build Hype

(Source: Email from Mercedes Benz)

Example 5. Provide detailed information on the product — Email on Acid

New Feature Announcement Email

(Source: Email from Email on Acid)

Be descriptive. The more details you share in the product introduction email the better.

I can’t omit the infographics in this email — it’s awesome. 

Example 6. Show the product from different angles — Hill City

New Feature Announcement Email

(Source: Email from Hill City)

There are cases when an image is worth a thousand words, especially when it comes to product introduction emails.

Example 7. Let the designer present their own collection — Brighton product launch campaign

Personally, I love this tradition implemented by Brighton, the jewelry store.

Product Launch Email Campaign _ Letting the Designer Introduce Their New Collection

(Source: Email from Brighton)

Every time, when launching a new collection, Brighton lets the designer present it by him/herself. The creator of the collection speaks from her heart and explains what exactly motivated her to craft this particular line.

Example 8. Be supportive during the product release — Everlane

Launch Email Example _ Being Supportive

(Source: Email from Everlane)

This is a new product item and prospects do not know whether it’s about to go well with the rest of their wardrobe. Be supportive — provide them with fashion recommendations on how to wear this cashmere rib with other pieces of the brand’s apparel. Everlane even shared photos of what it is about to look like.

A nice trick to increase sales, huh?

This is one of my favorite clothing line launch newsletter examples.

Example 9. Persuade to buy from you/play on people’s vanity — Maybelline product launch announcement 

Stripo Product Launch Announcement Email Maybelline

(Source: Email from Maybelline)

When it comes to fashion and trends, for a number of your subscribers, nothing can be more convincing than feedback by prominent people. The Oprah Magazine awarded this lipstick, right? — Then definitely, I should try it, too.

Example 10. Make it clear — Tesla's new feature launch email

Newly Launched Product

(Source: Email from Tesla)

Certainly, you do need to be mysterious, and intriguing, but not on the product launch day. Once the product is available to order or pre-order, make your copy straight. Add photos or even videos of the newly launched product. There should be no misunderstanding.

Example 11. Use videos in product announcement emails — Appcues

Add videos in your feature announcement emails

(Source: Email from Appcues)

Only the person who is in love with the product can describe it at its best. And who loves the product most? Right, the CEO and developers. In some cases, it is the same person.

Let the CEO speak, and record a video where he or she describes the pros of the product in the smallest details.

Example 12. Send an invitation to a live presentation — Tesla product launch event

If you are hosting an entire offline event where a speaker on behalf of your team presents a just-launched product, be sure to send the event announcement email to your contact base, including existing customers.

Example of an invitation to a brand new event

(Source: Email from Tesla)

Tesla sent this invitation like an hour before the very event.

However, they had also promoted this event via social media channels.

Example 13. Encourage to purchase your product — Apple

Future Slaes Emails with the Pre Order Option

(Source: Email from Apple)

Apple is probably the best at running product launch email campaigns. Every word, every character matters.

One more thing that makes them unique — once the exact product launch date is set, they hurry to share it with prospects!

Example 14. Be appealing during your product launch campaign — Ferrari

Marketing message with a sneak peek

(Source: Email from Ferrari)

This is a perfect announcement of an upcoming product. Ferrari here appeals to vanity :)

Because who wouldn’t like to be the first to possess something luxurious? And to win...

The “Pre-order” button helps — it means I won’t have to stay in line, I will receive my parcel on the release day, I will be really the first to try.

Example 15. Emphasize the feeling of anticipation — Grammarly product launch announcement

Beta announcement email

(Source: Email from Grammarly)

Top-requested feature… nice trick! Even if some of your prospects did not care about this option, they are now likely to try it out to find out what made it so anticipated.

Example 16. Highlight the new features in detail — Nokia product release email

Features Announcement Emails by Nokia

(Source: Really Good Emails)

I find this email campaign perfect for three reasons:

  1. The two CTA buttons that repeat themselves.

  2. Brian Crecente from Rolling Stone praised this product.

  3. Nokia highlighted the top pros of Steel HR by listing and illustrating them.

Even if just glimpsing at this email, prospects will still see that this watch is worth considering if not purchasing.

Example 17. Remind how soon the product will be launched — Brighton

Mentioning Launch Date in an Announcement Email

(Source: Email from Brighton)

Brighton mentions the launch day across all emails, across all promo emails. Even if the email is not a piece of the product launch campaign.

Good way to not let your customers forget about your releases.

Example 18. Build a product launch email sequence — Everlane

Everlane sent out 4 emails.

Email 1 for product launch email sequence 

They just informed us that every minute a million plastic bottles are made. And added they are about to do something about it:

(Source: Email from Everlane)

Email 2 for product launch email sequence

They notified us they are going to eliminate virgin plastic by producing outwear out of it:

Announcement Email

Email 3 for product launch email sequence

They finally let us take a sneak peek at the upcoming product.

Email 4 for product launch email sequence

They finally announced the sale has been started and added the CTA button.

Stripo Product Launch Everlane Wait Is Over

This is simple yet amazing!

Example 19. Structurize your product launch email for easier perception — Stripo

New product launch email template:

Product Launch Email Sample Stripo

Build product release email in under 10 minutes
Use this template

This email template contains room for heading and CTA text, video block, and description fields. All content is structured.  Which makes it easier to perceive information and makes your email more appealing.

Once you pick it for your future product launch email campaigns, you will only have to slightly edit it:  replace our content and logo with yours.

Example 20. Connect a new product release with previous releases or your brand history — Porsche

Let your customers buy not only your product but your story. Things that have a history normally cost more and are cherished more.

New Product Announcement Sample

(Source: Email from Porsche)

Product launch email subject lines: Examples

The subject may be creative, yet clear and descriptive.

  1. You have signed up for the Alphaedge 4D Shoes release — Adidas.

  2. We are bringing our vision to the road: Mission E becomes Taycan — Porsche.

  3. Introducing Campaign Precheck — Email on Acid.

  4. Introducing the seamless Train Tee — Hill City.

  5. JUST RELEASED: An Exotic New Collection! — Brighton.

  6. Cashmere Rib Is Here — Everlane.

  7. Introducing Shine Compulsion Lipstick’s Newest Shades! — Maybelline New York.

  8. Tesla Updates: Model 3 is Available to Order — Tesla.

  9. Introducing The Growth Lab! — Appcues.

  10. Get Ready — Livestream Cybertruck Unveil! — Tesla.

  11. The first Scuderia Ferrari gaming headphones: don’t miss out! — Ferrari.

  12. Grammarly’s Chrome Extension + Google Docs, Together at Last! — Grammarly.

  13. Nokia steel HR has arrived — Nokia.

  14. Inspired by the future: The VISION AVTR — Mercedes.

  15. In 7 Days: ReNew — Everlane.

  16. It’s Time to Renew — Everlane.

  17. In 2 Days: ReNew — Everlane.

  18. The Wait Is Over: ReNew — Everlane.

  19. AlphaEdge 4D Reflective: Coming soon — Adidas.

  20.  Meet the Superhero of Jeans — Athleta.

  21. Introducing the first ever Gap Home Collection — Gap.

  22.  We asked, we listened, we launched! — Monica Vinader.

  23.  YEEZY LAUNCH STARTS IN… — Adidas.

  24.  In The Details: Launching Enchanted Garden — Brighton.

  25.  The new Taycan Cross Turismo. Arriving Soon. And Fast — Porsche.

Some of these examples are trivial, some are bold. There are no best practices on how to write effective product launch subject lines. There is one rule only: Be creative and bold when working on a new subject line for your launch messages.

Building Product Launch Announcement Emails with Stripo

You can also add a menu if necessary. However, famous brands almost never do it for product announcement emails.

Building a banner for your product release email

The banner can be represented as an a) banner image or a b) carousel of banners.

a) banner image for product launch email
  • upload your banner image;

  • then choose orientation;

  • apply matching filters;

  • add a copy over your banner image to make it compelling;

  • you can also upload a picture of a CTA button drawn by your designer over your banner image. 

For more information on how to build an effective banner with Stripo in under 10 minutes, please refer to our blog post and watch a short video.

b) carousel of banners for product launch email

There are two types of carousel — CCS and AMP image carousel.

The second one is supported now by Gmail and Yahoo both desktop and mobile apps.

How does it work? Users swipe from one to another banner image.

Interactivity, especially, in product announcement and promo emails increase customers’ engagement. 

Stripo allows adding up to 16 slides:

  • drag an AMP carousel block in your product announcement email template;

  • enable “Preview images”, set their size — the preview images will be located below the image carousel;

  • upload your image;

  • edit it if necessary;

  • place a CTA button over it if you like;

  • click the “Add slide” button;

  • upload a new image, etc.

Easy to embed one with Stripo in your emails:

  • drag a video block into your email;

  • insert the link to your video that you’ve previously uploaded to Youtube or Vimeo in a respective field;

  • Stripo will add video’s alt text automatically;

  • choose the play button color;

  • upload a custom thumbnail image to make it more meaningful. 

Adding Videos to New Product Announcement Templates

Designing a CTA button for product launch emails

Have you convinced potential customers they need to buy your product? — Great! Show them where they can do it.

Build a CTA button that is quite noticeable for your launch email:
  • open the “Appearance tab”;

  • go to the “General” settings;

  • enter the “Button” tab;

  • work on the button’s design — this way, you apply these settings to all the buttons you are going to use in your email;

  • enable the “Highlight hovered buttons” option if you like — your buttons will change color once a user places the mouse pointer over your button;

  • toggle the “Support of Outlook” button — if you want your buttons to save them shape in Outlook;

  • drag the button block in your email template.
