The 6-figure Product Launch Blueprint Masterclass
Limited to the first 5 students! We're only taking entrepreneurs who are serious about the success of their next product launch.
Don't just take our word for it.
Here's what other entrepreneurs have to say about our proven track record of success.
Johnny provided really valuable insight on building my Kickstarter campaign and validating my product/price point before launch. He gave me great information on what costs to expect, the timeline for launching and provided the key strategies that helped raise over $500k for my new prouct (far exceeding my own expectations).
The Playground team gave me the confidence and understanding to raise $120K for my product launch. It's very uncommon for food products to do well in crowdfunding, but the strategies and tactics I learned allowed me to leverage my existing audience and create a unique brand story that surpassed my funding goal by more than 300%.
I have a marketing background, but crowdfunding was totally new to me. Playground Theory was able to identify key areas for me to focus my marketing launch efforts and were such a pleasure to work with. If you're looking for an experienced team to work with to launch your project, the Playground team will help you achieve and surpass your funding goals.
Learn how entrepreneurs are raising 5x-30x more funding with crowdfunding on Kickstarter over traditional ecom launch strategies
Hi fellow entrepreneur!
I’m Johnny Loh, Co-founder of Playground Theory - a mentorship program and community that helps inventors, creators, and entrepreneurs like you to launch successful products online. Since 2014, I’ve personally helped dozens of entrepreneurs and international brands with their product launches.
I love working with entrepreneurs to bring their visions to life and see them create a positive impact in the world through their ideas!
Just like you, I’ve learned that hands-on experience is the best teacher.
Failure has taught me a TON of tough lessons (like losing $150,000 of my own money in several failed products).
But for me, thankfully I’ve learned that failure is an inevitable byproduct on the path to success. I learned quickly from my failures and amassed over +$7 Million in successful launches.
If you had to ask me: “What’s the one key secret to your success?”
The answer I’d give you is simple: it's a hugely overlooked opportunity called “crowdfunding”.
So what is crowdfunding and why should you care?
Crowdfunding is an overlooked and under-utilized ecommerce model that allows early adopters to pre-order products and services BEFORE it even exists. Inventors, creators, and entrepreneurs raise funds to bring their novel ideas to life, pay for their first manufacturing run, and lay the foundation for their brands, allowing them to scale into million dollar companies.
The largest and most well known crowdfunding platform is Kickstarter.
The 6-figure Product Launch Blueprint Masterclass
Limited to the first 5 students! we're only taking entrepreneurs who are serious about the success of their next product launch.
We proved the impossible. Reaching the top 1% of Kickstarter projects, not once but TWICE for our own products.
What did we learn from launching 2x record breaking Kickstarter projects in a row? We proved to ourselves that it wasn’t just a fluke. There is definitely something we were able to achieve thanks to crowdfunding that other ecom entrepreneurs couldn’t by traditional means.
So after these two amazing product launches, we realized there was a huge opportunity. One that we had to share with other entrepreneurs.
Here are the benefits of crowdfunding on Kickstarter that the rest of the ecom industry was missing out on:
💰 We received 100% of the funds UPFRONT before placing a purchase order: Customers place ‘pre-orders’ for your product and you get the cash upfront! Gauge demand for your product and eliminate the unnecessary risk of paying for a large inventory upfront before launch.
🔩 All we needed was a prototype to raise funds: Believe it or not, all our marketing assets were created from a SINGLE working prototype! Yet we were still able to raise all that money!
🙌 We rallied our first 1000 raving fans and received valuable feedback about the product: The HARDEST part of building a brand and launching a new product is building your fanbase. Thanks to our Kickstarter campaigns, not only did we receive hundreds of raving reviews and user generated content, our customers gave us valuable feedback that allowed us to further improve our product before manufacturing.
📈 25% of the funds came from Kickstarter’s audience: 25% of our total funds raised came from regular Kickstarter visitors browsing the site. The organic reach and conversion rate was CRAZY!
🎯 Better positioned for bigger deals after the launch: A successful crowdfunding campaign becomes a marketing asset that you can use to create bigger opportunities. Gain traction with investors, distribution partners, and major retailers, the upside is HUGE!
🚀 We raised an additional 50% in post-campaign upsells and add-ons: Not only is the crowdfunding community highly engaged, they are BIG SPENDERS. With no additional marketing dollars, we made an additional 50% in revenue in upsells and add-ons!
These performance metrics are unheard of in the ecom world, yet we producted these results consistently for multiple launches.
That’s when we decided to launch our 6-Figure Product Launch Blueprint Masterclass.
Why launch this online course now?
With the current business climate caused by COVID-19, we’ve seen many businesses struggle to maintain momentum and many ecom entrepreneurs realizing the importance of building a business and brand that’s sustainable and flexible–even amidst a recession.
So, for the first time we’ve decided to create this 6-figure Product Launch Blueprint Masterclass with the strategies, templates, and secrets we personally used to generate over +$7M in successful product launches by leveraging crowdfunding.
This is perfect for the current ecom landscape because customers will order your product BEFORE you risk purchasing inventory. It provides 2 main benefits:
- You eliminate risk and generate cash flow by having a profitable launch
- You capitalize on your successful launch to create a real brand asset that allows for your business to have sustainable success
In this 6-week crash course, we reveal how we architect successful launches consistently so that you have everything you need to launch your next product.
Launch your next product successfully and take control of your business’ success and sustainability.

I’m an engineer and decided to start my ecom journey last year. I got in touch with the Playground team to understand the best way to pursue a product launch using crowdfunding and they really knew the strategy inside and out. They helped me with pre-launch, setting up my campaign page, and developing the content strategy for my video. They also gave me crucial feedback to refine my market position and branding message. I could not have raised as much money without them.
The Playground team have been instrumental in helping us scale our existing ecommerce business by introducing us to the crowdfunding model. With guidance from Playground, I pivoted my original launch to Kickstarter; they walked me through the entire process: from product validation, to financial planning and pre/post launch execution. Playground Theory was able to provide us with the framework and strategy that was critical to our success. Above all, the Playground team is down to earth and really dependable!

With help from Playground Theory, I was able to navigate towards a successful launch that was 20X above my funding goal for my second crowdfunding campaign. Their system is rock solid; once might have been a fluke but working with their system a second time I know that I couldn’t have achieved this without them. Since the launch of my second project I’ve been growing my brand by 30% month over month.
The Playground Team are masters of their craft. They’ve perfected a system that really works for launching new products. On our third project working with them they continued to deliver value and expertise that was invaluable to the success of my campaign. They were crucial in helping us to navigate the COVID ecommerce climate and gave us the confidence to launch during these uncertain times. Our third project was our best project yet reaching over $200K!
Playground Theory provided amazing guidance and advice all throughout our mentorship. They were able to identify key areas to improve my launch strategy after reviewing my campaign.
