Jack-o-lanterns and candy corn already line the shelves of grocery stores, heralding the arrival of fall and the holiday season. But even as the busiest shopping time of the year grows near, some brands are looking further ahead, planning for the launch of new products in the coming year.
If you’re among that group, you’re well aware that creating and releasing new products is an exciting but complicated process. After spending months researching product opportunity, target audiences, competitive landscape, and developing the product, you hope that all your time and energy will pay off after launch day, but that’s far from a guarantee.
Markets are increasingly saturated as retailing and direct selling become more accessible, with Amazon occupying the forefront of that trend. Amazon is only one marketplace, but it accounts for a significant portion of ecommerce sales, with estimates ranging from a third to half of online sales in the US. Its predominance makes it a key player in any product launch strategy.
To position your product for a successful launch, you need to enter the game with a holistic strategy for marketing, inventory management, and customer service.
To help with that effort, Kaspien has introduced our First-to-Market (FTM) Program, a comprehensive package wherein Kaspien provides marketing, logistic, and account support for a set monthly rate.
Over our 11 years on Amazon, Kaspien has helped launch hundreds of new products, establishing and refining best practices. This program draws those insights together into a convenient, comprehensive services package.

Now, we’ve introduced the FTM Program to help your new products succeed too.
The FTM Program starts at $4,000/month retainer, which pays for labor and up to $1,500 of monthly marketing services. The program transitions to a wholesale retailer partnership when revenue reaches a sustainable rate, typically occurring within six months of product launch.
Enroll in the Kaspien’s FTM Program by reaching out to your Kaspien account manager and filling out our contact form.
