How To Put Your Best Foot Forward – The Elevator Pitch

Share This Post

First impressions matter. People make up their minds about who you are, and whether or not they are going to buy from you, all within a matter of seconds.

If you got into an elevator on the ground floor of a building, and had to make the perfect presentation to sell yourself or your big idea by the time you reach the top floor, could you do it? Could you communicate in a crisp, clear, and concise way that influences others?

If the answer is no, I recommend developing your own “elevator pitch”.

A good elevator pitch helps ensure that you always put your best foot forward.

What should be included in your elevator pitch?

  • Your name
  • Your job title
  • Company name
  • What you company does
  • The market your company serves
  • How customers benefit from your product

* Each answer should be no more than one sentence.

Finally, at the end of your elevator pitch, you should always ask for the order.

  • Can you benefit, or is there someone you know that can benefit from our product or service?

Now, anytime someone asks what you do, you’ll be prepared. You will make a great impression. You will have put your best foot forward.
