When speaking to business owners about networking one thing that usually comes up is ‘pitching’. This also came up in an interview Jade did recently too.
So often business owners don’t like the idea of pitching because it feels like selling, which feels, ICKY
HOWEVER, at The Ribbons Network, the LAST thing we want you to be feeling is uncomfortable and the last thing we want you to do is to turn up to sell… so here is a reframe.
❌ PITCHING ❌
THINK OF YOUR PITCH AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE, NOT AN OPPORTUNITY TO SELL.
🎀 SHARE VALUE
🎀 SHARE KNOWLEDGE
🎀 SHARE IDEAS
🎀 SHARE LAUGHTER
🎀 SHARE HOW YOU CAN BE SUPPORTED
Sharing your business in this way will give the room the power to help you and give you the power to grow in confidence and to grow your business.
SO… HERE’S HOW TO PACK POWER INTO YOUR 30 SECONDS OF POWER
Presenting your business can often seem daunting and sticking to 30 seconds can also be challenging, so here are my tips, for you on getting the most POWER from your 30 seconds.
🤝 10 Seconds: WOW – Use a statement, question or statistic to capture the attention
🤝 10 Seconds: HOW – How is this related to your business/industry and how can you help
🤝 10 Seconds: NOW – Arguably the most important part, this is where you pack the POWER. Use now to let them know what you want, your call to action.
Packing POWER into your call to action will not only make you memorable but it will also help the room help you, the more specific you can be the better!
If you now feel emPOWERed to try this and don’t yet have an opportunity to do so, please book an upcoming meeting, using the code RNGROW for £5 off.
