Deliver a Compelling Elevator Speech every time!
Compel them to ask you for your business card in 30 seconds.
Imagine riding an elevator when one of the other passengers asks you, “What do you do?” You intend to step off at the next floor. You have about 30 seconds to answer the question. Can you answer so compellingly that you are asked for your business card before the elevator stops?
Succeed at this simple test.
This is the test of an effective elevator speech: To be asked for your card by a stranger after a self-introduction that lasts no longer than thirty seconds.
Make it meaningful to them.
This is especially important to people whose success depends on requesting referrals, responding to referrals, meeting people at events, and other forms of networking. Indeed, when people ask what you do, they are often most satisfied when you tell them what problems you solve then ask for a gauge of importance to them.
Make it work in context.
Articulate Consultants not only provides coaching on how to answer the question, “What do you do?” compellingly, but also how to ask the same question to start conversations that boost sales effectiveness through in-person networking.
