Copy of Free Teleseminar: The 5 Biggest Mistakes Professionals Make in their Elevator Pitch

"When your mouth is OPEN, so is your business.

When your mouth is CLOSED, so is your business."


Everything in business STARTS with an introduction. It starts with the answer to the question, "What do you do?".

An "elevator pitch" is a 30-second opportunity to introduce yourself - who you are, what you do, and how you are different from your competition.

Most professional business associations and networking groups now allow opportunities for everyone in attendance to give the entire room their 30-second elevator pitch (or referred to as "networking commercial), "round robin" style. Standing out and being remembered can be very challenging in this type of situation - especially if your competition is in the room as well.

Some professionals may not attend networking functions, but are definitely talking to people on a daily basis about their business to people one-on-one - letting them know they're open for business.

Unfortunately, 30-seconds isn't a whole lot of time to really pique someone's interest in what you have to offer, so it's crucial to have a high impact introduction.

Professionals of all types - entreprenuers, small business owners, sales professionals, direct sales professionals, etc. can often times struggle with their elevator pitch. Trying to take everything that's great about you and condensing it down to 30-seconds can often be a challenge, wouldn't you agree?

It's important to know what NOT to do in an elevator pitch. Again, 30-seconds isn't a whole lot of time, so it's important to make the most use of that precious time.

In this special FREE teleseminar, "The 5 Biggest Mistakes Professionals Make in their Elevator Pitch", you'll learn how to AVOID making common mistakes and how to set yourself apart and be remembered.

"Excellent event.  I learned what mistakes I have been making and how to improve myself.  Not all free seminars are worth your time, but this is worth every minute."
