Launch menus are very important for your Launch pages.
Step 1 – Create Your Launch Pages
To get started, first setup the Launch pages for your campaign. Usually in a Launch you have 4 pages. Three of them are your Launch (value) pages and the 4th one is usually your Sales page.
- Go to Campaigns in left-sidebar menu
- Click on +Add New Page
- Select a name for your Launch Page
- Under the Page Templates drop-down, select Launch Pages
- Select the Launch Page Template
Create 2 additional Launch Pages by replicating the steps above.
Add a Sales page by selecting one of the Sales page templates from the page template menu.
At this stage it is not necessary to add the content to you Launch pages
You simply need the pages ready so that you can setup your Launch menu.
Step 2 – Create your Launch Menu
Next, you need to setup your Launch menu
- Go to Boosters, then select Launch Menus.
- In the Launch Menus dashboard, click on the Plus (+) icon on the upper right hand corner.
- In the next screen, give your menu a name
- Then manage the content of your Launch menu:
