Today in #FridayForward, Business Strategist Richard Taurima talks about why pitching is an important skill to have, to advance your business forward.
Pitching is an art. However, it is a lot easier if you are a people’s person or a sales person. This is because if you have been a sales person or know how to read people, you are often more sensitive to the words you use . You understand the importance of understanding the way people react to you and how their personality will affect how they take your story.
Pitching is simply a new form of selling. It has a time-frame and a set structure. You set out your problem or solution and how your product or service fits into this equation. You may have as short as 30 seconds or as long as 5 minutes. This is why seeking coaching in this area is really important.
To be able to pitch successfully, you need to be hungry to succeed and understand that the way you use your time can mean the difference between making a sale or securing investment or walking away with nothing. Take the time to learn how to pitch.
