If you have a great idea, creating the perfect pitch may prove to be a daunting task. This can be resolved by following simple tips. One must ensure it is as simple as possible and one sentence is ideal so it will remain in the customer’s head. It does not have to rhyme but if it justifies what your company does, that is good enough.

Key Takeaways:

  • You should not give your full elevator pitch right off the bat.
  • A great way to teach anything is through direct engagement with your audience.
  • The best way to get confident is to practice your elevator pitch in front of a mirror a few hundred times.

“Lead with your one-sentence pitch, then pause for a moment and let the idea sink in. If they ask a follow up question, mission accomplished.”
