Entrepreneurs have many opportunities to increase their "Top of Mind" status to successfully promote their business. On a daily basis, it is your elevator pitch. An elevator pitch is a brief, persuasive statement that you use to spark interest and a conversation in what your organization does. You can also use it to create interest in a project, idea or product – or in yourself. A good elevator pitch should last no longer than a short elevator ride of 60 seconds or less, hence the name. It should be interesting, memorable and succinct. It also needs to explain what makes you – or your organization, product or idea – unique. Elevator pitch can be used in day-to-day life when people ask what you do or at the upcoming Pitch Party to be held at Southern Appalachian Brewery on December 5th from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM. This seminar will also prepare you to verbally present your business for funding to a Local Bank, Microloan Organization i.e. Mountain Bizworks, Angel Investor Group or a Venture Capital Firm. "Build it and they will come" is not a good marketing strategy, it is better to pitch it.
