Ever see a pitch where the person tells a long, boring story, or takes the stage with the energy of a paper bag? You start feel really bad for them, right?. Well, for investors, who get pitched all the time, there is very little patience to try and figure out what exactly your pitching them. You have to pitch it fast, clear and convince them that you're "the one" for the job, and that your product is valuable. Here are 10 simple tips for a rockin' pitch.
1. Be crazy in love.
2. Beat the clock.
3. Get to the point already!
4. Don’t do what everybody else does.
5. Don’t get techy.
6. “We’re Netflix for underwear.”
7. Make YOUR OWN pitch.
8. What’s so great about you?
9. Don’t be a punk.
10. Sell the dream.
So now you know that you gotta be quick and to the point. You know that you need to clear on the value you are offering. And you know that you need to have good energy and a positive attitude throughout the pitch. Try it out, and go rock some socks off!
