READ: Idea Elevator Pitch

Concise. Your pitch should take no longer than 60 seconds.

Clear. Use language that everyone understands. Don't use fancy words thinking it
will make you sound smarter. Your listener won't understand you and you'll have
lost your opportunity to hook them.

Powerful. Use words that are powerful and strong. Deliver the "Sis-Boom-Bang" to
grab their attention!

Visual. Use words that create a visual image in your listeners mind. This will
make your message memorable.

Tell a Story. A short story, that is. A good story is essentially this: someone with a
problem either finds a solution or faces tragedy. Either type of story can be used
to illuminate what you do.

Targeted. A great elevator pitch is aimed for a specific audience. If you have
target audiences that are vastly different, you might want to have a unique pitch
for each.

Goal Oriented. A kick-ass elevator pitch is designed with a specific outcome in
mind. What is your desired outcome? You may have different pitches depending
on different objectives. For instance do you want to: make a sale, gain a prospect,
enlist support for an idea, or earn a referral.

Value Proposition and Solution

Step 1: Know your customer: Thinking from the perspective of your customer, ask the following:
- Who is he or she? What does s/he do and need?
- What problems does s/he need to solve?
- What improvements does s/he look for?
- What does s/he value?

Step 2: Know your product, service or idea: From your customer view point:
- How does the product, service or idea solve the problem or offer improvement?
- What value and hard results does it offer the customer?

Step 3: Know your competitors: Keep on thinking from the perspective of your customer, and ask:
- How does your product or idea create more value than competing ones?

Step 4: Distill the customer-oriented proposition: The final step is to pull it all together and answer, in 2
or 3 sentence: "Why should I buy this specific product or idea?”
Try writing from the customer viewpoint by completing the following, (and don't forget to include the
numbers and percentages that matter!):
- "I want to buy this product or idea because it will...”
- "The things I value most about the offer are...”
- "It is better than competing products or ideas because..."

Step 5: Pull it all together: Now, turn around your customers 'answer' from step 4 into a value
proposition statement.
