What are pre-launch communications?

Pre-launch communications are off-platform emails sent by key leaders and stakeholders that notify and create excitement with participants regarding the upcoming launch of the community. They emails also serve as a way to get users to understand the value of participating in the Ten Thousand Coffees community, warming them up before they receive their invitation.

They’re crucial as it may be the first time prospective participants hear about the program, so the messaging should clearly present the value of participating.

We recommend sending two sets of pre-launch communications:

  1. To executives & leaders approximately 10 days before launch
  2. To all eligible members approximately 4 days before launch

Who should send pre-launch communications?

These communications should be sent by key leaders and stakeholders, as their influence can drive participation. An example is an email from the executive sponsor of the program, sent to invited members to prepare them for the official invitation.

Templates for pre-launch communications

Below are some templates you can use for pre-launch communications, by audience. The copy includes sections where you can tailor the communications to resonate with your organization.
