Following are some easy tips that will help you to deal with this issue.

Don’t rush for the announcements

In almost all the startups there is a temptation to announce their offering or advantages to the market as soon as possible. Living up to the hype can be quite difficult and can backfire in some cases. Thus, you must reveal your product and services gradually over a period of time.

Set your mindset

You must have a clear mindset that you are going to face hodgepodge and complex situation while launching a startup too early. Thus, you must not get depressed or sad due to these unfavorable situations that you are likely to see and should deal with them patiently.

Having a business plan, and particularly the launch plan can be a great way to deal such a situation. Take your time to analyze the most important factors that may be affected by the early launch, i.e. emergency funding, PR strategy and social media plan.

Multitask

In order to counteract the ill effects of launching a startup too early, you and the team should resort to multitasking. Try to do as much work as you can do even if it involves various disciplines. However, you should take calculated risks so that you don’t put the entire project into jeopardy.
