Win that high ticket Client or your dream job with a story by Career Coach Debeshi
If you are in the business of standing out and reading this article that means you are stopped being your best in meetings, interviews or presentations.
Don’t worry this article gets you covered.
Step one is to stop data-telling in meetings, interviews and presentations. Transform your data to an infographic, verbal pitch or a vivid story. How? It is not easy but, getting started is 90% done.
Step two is to test and practice with a safe audience typically the non- business. Social media can be helpful for the same.
Step three is to get your progress mapped and reviewed by a coach, mentor who will give you constructive feedback . Get someone who will be there for you long-term.
So while you figure out the above, let me share some secrets that I only share with my CXO clients. I recommend to my aspiring C-Suite clients the tools to navigate real and digital spaces effectively and use them for pitching.
There are widely four pitches namely:
-The Twitter pitch;
includes your entire business idea in one catchy statement limited to 140 characters.
A standard pitch:“I help business and startups with growth” becomes a Twitter pitch as
“businesses and startups hire me to become 7 figure in revenue”
Use: Clients use this as conversation starters in virtual groups, webinars, LinkedIn profile headlines, signatures and many more.
- The Elevator pitch;
revolves around a short description of your company involving the goal of the pitch, what your company does, USP, and a question to the listener. It should not exceed 30 seconds.
Linkedin 30 seconds profile DP is what my CHRO, CEO clients love using this for. Some associates have also used it as a video resume summary and bagged Big-4 Executive interviews.
- The Competition pitch;
is longer compared to the other two and needs a pitch deck to be presented. It has a limited 3-5 mins and a significant focus on your speaking over the presentation.
Using infographics is a game-changer for the same.
- The Investor pitch;
this, too, involves a professional deck set-up and is rather intense. One needs to engage the investors, make them interested in the business as he is the one who could invest and make your business work into practical aspects.
Data tells story sells.
Mastering the art of pitching is like a life skill for freelancers, entrepreneurs even jobseekers
As a story coach, I don’t mind making you win that high ticket Client, few more projects or your dream job.
