    How to Create An Effective Elevator Pitch

    in Business

    First, what is it and why do you need to know about it?  As a business owner, it could be the most powerful tool you do to move your company to the next level.  An elevator pitch is a brief persuasive speech that will ignite the conversation on what you and your company is all about.  The tough part, a good elevator pitch should be no longer than that short elevator ride to the next floor.  You only have about 20-30 seconds to get it all out. 

    Here are the top 3 things your elevator pitch should be.  Interesting.  Memorable.  Precise & Compact.

    It needs to explain what makes you and your company worth doing business with.   Make it unique and make it stand out.  Easier said than done!  If you are a small business owner you may be thinking, I can’t do public speaking.  But in the world of networking it’s a powerful way to connect with your customers and potential strategic partners. 

    Christina Rowsell will guide you through the process of creating your elevator pitch to get heard.  Christina has over 20 years of public speaking.  She can help you come up with an elevator pitch that will have people remembering you and what you do!  You can read more in Christina's article in the 2nd Issue of the Brighter Business Empower Magazine HERE!  To learn more about Christina, visit her online at www.christinarowsell.com.

    Ditch Your Elevator Pitch: Deliver Your Business Message Like a Media Pro

    in Business

    How do you answer the question “what do you do?” at business networking events? Do you launch into your “elevator pitch?”

    Does your elevator pitch make someone’s eyes glaze over or cause them to politely excuse themselves? If so, youre doing it wrong and it’s time to ditch your pitch.

    Discover how to deliver your business message like a media pro when host Hanna Hasl-Kelchner welcomes sound bite expert, communications consultant, and Success Messaging Coach, Mary Jane McKittrick, author of Craft Your I.A.T. Pitch.™

    It’s a philosophy she’s used to guide executives, entrepreneurs, and even politicians to expand their income and circle of influence for decades.

    Mary Jane has worked in in media, in front of and behind the camera, in a number of roles in TV news (as an anchor, reporter, and producer); and TV entertainment; as Director of Corporate Communications overseeing 5 offices statewide for a major NC health maintenance organization; and now as a business consultant and the Success Messaging Coach, helping entrepreneurs fine tune their message to attract their ideal customers and keep them for life.

    How to Construct Your Elevator Pitch as the CEO of Me, Inc.

    in Jobs

    Your elevator pitch is great for networking. Many formal networking organizations limit members to 60-second presentations. It also works in social situations when you’re asked the usual icebreaker, “What do you do?” Tonight Rod takes you through his 5 point elevator pitch packet that is flexible enough to use in any situation. 

    An elevator pitch, elevator speech, or elevator statement is a short summary used to quickly and simply define a person, profession or service and its value proposition. The name "elevator pitch" reflects the idea that it should be possible to deliver the summary in the time span of an elevator ride, or approximately thirty seconds to two minutes.

    Why a good Elevator Pitch is Critical to Finding Investors

    in Entrepreneur

    Karen Rands, the Compassionate Capitalist, continues her Money Hunt series by exploring the role of the Elevator Pitch when entrepreneurs seeking angel investors.  
    Entrepreneurs work hard on their business plan, their investor pitch deck, and structuring their deal, often over looking one of the most critical components of preparing for and attracting investment capital.   Investors will decide in the first 90 seconds whether they want to even give that passionate entrepreneur even another 10 minutes of their time and attention.  Mastering the elevator pitch, whether used during a Fast Pitch event or as part of networking for investors,  is critical to communicate what you are doing and why an investor would or should care.   There is a formula for an effective elevator pitch that can penetrate the subconscious of the investor mind to address their inherent doubts and fears. 
    Tune in to hear the insights Karen Rands will share during this half hour segment.   The information offered here are highlights from the Fast Pitch Workshop Karen offers in Atlanta.
