Would you ever
Buy from a vegetarian butcher?
Take sex advice from a virgin?
Trust your plumber with heart surgery?
Let a toddler drive your car?
Entrepreneurship is simply the journey of a thousand sales.
You’re always pitching, selling, persuading, cajoling. Customers, staff, investors, bankers.
Friends, family, strangers on the train.
Your show & tell is never done!
You may as well be doing it right.
NO MORE WONDERING
“Why aren’t they buying my thing?”
Your product rocks.
There’s no reason that your sales should be going ‘poof’ by the end of the month.
LET’S CHANGE THAT.
DID YOU KNOW?
Pitching isn’t selling.
Pitching isn't selling. It's pre-selling.
When you're selling, you have a thing. When you're pitching, it's your job to create the image of that thing in someone else's head.
So you're fiddling with someone's imagination.
If someone’s about to listen to you, the door to their inner Narnia is open.
A crappy pitch shuts it. Fast!
Do you feel like this?
You’ve got an awesome offering but can’t communicate its awesomeness.
You can’t accurately predict sales.
Business isn’t much fun right now and you’re constantly burned out.
You don’t know how to begin your sales conversations. They even frighten you a little.
You’re never sure how your sales conversations will end.
You clam up right before you have to do a mini pitch at a networking event
You dream of the day when you don’t need to be the one doing the selling.
When you do elevator pitches, you get a polite response like “Best of luck with that.”
You secretly feel like your pitch sucks/is boring/is not sexy.
You never pitch the same way twice
What comes out of your mouth sounds nothing like it does when it’s in your head.
You spend too much time chasing sales and not enough time developing your business
