Not sure what this is? Let me enlighten you.
An elevator pitch is a short, persuasive speech that you can use to spark interest in what your organization does. By organization – this could be any project or business plan that you are working on. You can also use one to create interest in a project, idea, or product.
It needs to be concise, while conveying important information.
To craft a great pitch, follow these steps.
Identify your goal – What is it that you really want to achieve at the end of all of this?
Explain what you do – Be specific, are you a photographer, lifestyle vlogger, digital marketer etc.
Communicate your Unique Selling Point (USP) – This is a factor that differentiates a product from its competitors.
Engage with a question – When asked be passionate with your answers.
Put it all together – beginning middle and end.
Practice what you preach.
Try to keep a business card or other takeaway item with you, which helps the other person remember you and your message. And cut out any information that doesn’t absolutely need to be there.
