Read "Perfecting Your Elevator Pitch" http://www.openforum.com/articles/perfecting-your-elevator-pitch The average person speaks 160 words per minute. This is accomplished in 2 or 3 written sentences. Provide a quick anecdote, fact or analogy to illustrate your message. A story brings your message alive and doubles the amount of time people remember it -- and you. Tell a story about a client’s problem, the effect it had on the business, and your solution for a happy ending. Little stories sell good points. Forgettable Example: "Hello, I’m Bob Johnson. I solve customer problems with OEM best-practice analytics." (He used jargon, which most people will not understand. Why didn’t he say that he works with suppliers to improve quality? Choose non-jargon words.) Memorable Example: "Hello, I’m Bob Johnson. I’ve recently launched a new business doing media assessment and technology integration—a whole new category of business. Usually, I work through Public Relations people in large companies or Advertising Agencies, and I work with clients all over the world." Use the following four-part structure: 1. Tell your name. 2. Refer to your experience. 3. Offer something unique about yourself. 4. Tie it in with what you can do for your customers.
