The Power Behind a Practiced Elevator Pitch
Have you ever been asked the question, “What do you do?” My answer: “I run a web design studio that helps businesses fix websites live over zoom.” When you articulate who you serve and how you help your community; it clarifies for you and others what your purpose is. Once your role is defined, topics of conversation can flow freely.
Write Your Own Elevator Pitch in 15 Minutes
This is the first exercise I practice with every one of our clients that has trouble introducing their business. There are really only 5 questions you need to answer in an elevator pitch:
- Who are you?
- What do you do?
- Who do you serve?
- What is their big problem?
- How do you fix their problem?
E.g. My name is Cyril Wong, and I’m the CEO/ Founder of Net Butlers Inc. We’re a web design studio that helps business owners, update and fix their websites live over zoom.
