3 Steps to a Networking Pitch that Inspires People to Work with You

hellomynameis The elevator speech… the networking pitch… “Hi, I’m Susie and I sell coaching…”

You probably hate giving that little speech (and frankly, others aren’t crazy about hearing it), right?

It’s a quick fix to go from a boring, bland, blend into the wallpaper 30 second sales pitch, to something that engages the right people so they ask “how can I hire you?!” and want to share you with their friends and connections, too.

Here’s the process…

Step One: Get your basics figured out…

First, start with these five questions:

  • Who Am I?
  • What Do I Do?
  • How Do I Do It?
  • Why Do I Do It?
  • Who Do I Do It For?

Step Two: Identify what makes you unique…

And then, create a list of ten interesting/unique/cool things about you by asking yourself these three questions:

  • What results have I achieved?
  • What’s unique/special/interesting about me?
  • What do clients/friends say in feedback?

Step Three: Next, fill in this simple template…

And that’s it!  Now you’ve got an interesting introduction to lead with when someone asks “what do you do?” or when you find yourself with an opportunity to share.

Write your “pitch” or “elevator speech” from this angle and you’ll find not only do more people want to work with you, but they’ll understand what it is that you do and want to help refer people to you, too!

  1. OK, I’m taking you up on that. How’s this?
    You know how some people hate how messy their home is, but they can’t seem to find the time, energy or motivation to clean it?
    I help (people) I help busy women keep their homes clean in just a few extra minutes a day so they can enjoy their home more and feel better about themselves, even if they’re a single mom.
    And its set up in simple daily tasks so once they learn the habits they can keep their home clean quickly with hardly any effort.
    Because my vision is to help busy women make their home life easier and more enjoyable.
