I have joined a group of co-bloggers who are going through this book titled: 31 days to build a better blog. To read more about it you can click on over here if you too want to join me and others for this time.
This is Day 1’s assignment which is to build an elevator pitch. What is an elevator pitch you may ask? According to Wikipedia it is:
An elevator pitch or elevator speech is an overview of a product, service, person, group or organization, or project and is often a part of a fundraising, marketing communications, brand, or public relations program.
The name “elevator pitch” reflects the idea that it should be possible to deliver an elevator pitch in the time span of an elevator ride, or approximately thirty seconds to two minutes.
An elevator pitch is often used by an entrepreneur pitching an idea to a venture capitalist or angel investor to receive funding. Venture capitalists often judge the quality of an idea by the quality of its elevator pitch and will ask entrepreneurs for their elevator pitches in order to quickly weed out bad ideas and weak teams.
Elevator pitches are also used in many other situations. Personal uses include job interviewing, dating, and summarizing professional services. Proposals for a book, screenplay, blog, and other forms of publishing are often delivered via an elevator pitch.
A variety of people, including project managers, salespeople, evangelists, and policy-makers commonly use elevator pitches to get their point across quickly.
An elevator pitch may be presented in oral, written, and video formats.
You can see my current version of it in the header of my site which is by the way the picture I used for this blog post. What are your thoughts about my elevator pitch? Does is seem quick but also descriptive over what I do in this blog?
