I’ve added my 30-second elevator speech/commercial. You’ll find it under the Hire a Pro radio button.
The first paragraph you’ll read there is my 10-second response when someone asks, “What do you do for a living?”
This is a good example of a combined 10-second/30-second spiel. If you haven’t written one for yourself, do it today, or connect with me so I can do it for you.
Your 10-30-second elevator speech is the first thing you’ll need when you start networking and letting people know who you are and what you do, so don’t wait to get it done!
Read Get Clients Now! by C.J. Hayden, implement what you learn there, and let me help you with the written/public-facing aspects of your marketing campaign and materials.
Don’t entrust the copy you send to your target audience to amateurs. If people aren’t immediately engaged with and impressed by what you present to them, they won’t remain and will rarely return to see if your materials and the information you provide got any better.
Bottom Line: Hire a pro from the get-go. It’s too risky not to!
