Quoting Theo592000

I was in an elevator with a man that managed to tell me what is problems were for the day, what he was planning to do for the day and that he was divorced....all in maybe 20 seconds. Elevator comes to a stop, he jumps out, tells me to have a fantastic day, then skips to his car. I'm not sure I said anything to him except uh huh, I see, you have a good en' too. lol

So I guess if you  decided what the best features  of your new product are and why you believe in it...condense that down to the highlights and speed talk.....then tell 'em to have a nice day. If it doesn't go well start crying and tell them you might get fired. (wink)

Theo



Oooh. Meaty! I'm not such a good speed-talker, but I'm told I can do a pretty decent "poor little me" pout. Not as good as some, though...

Believe it or not, I'm typically speachless in elevators... I get too nervous just being in one, let alone worrying about talking to somebody... even if I know them...

GW....You asked me what was the lamest thing I ever said to have a woman  answer the phone.  Being a polar bear I dont make phone calls (as I said before) so how could I answer your question.... while you were excellent for a newbie there is still a learning curve.  Care to try step 4??

Current mood: Intrigued and a polar bear thinking sushi and wine are good...Maybe 3 glasses??   it's the weekend!



Eva...slight hi-jack here, but since we've talked about this, I think it's ok...lol

newman.....you have me intrigued. So if the polar bear doesn't make phone calls and the ladies call you instead...then what is the lamest thing a woman could say to you that would make the polar bear answer the phone? 3 glasses of wine and sushi too?  Love sushi!  That's a perfect combo. Man, I went to bed too early last night.

AZ, I'm not trying to make it about "my" product, which, BTW, is new patent for a fuel-efficient vehicle engine, way too long to explain, which is why I'm stumped to get it into an elevator. Mostly, I'd love to hear about your pitch.  "Fast, good or cheap, pick two". What do you love and can you describe it in a sentence?  Those power phrases will give me the material I seek.

Quoting BonnieGirl1971

HI! I remember the movie. A boss made me watch it. Changed my life! My name is Bonnie, I sell ******, and you want to buy it from me because I guarantee best quality, best price, best service. All Three!


Welcome Bonnie!  Ok, so, when the elevator doors open, does the buyer have your business card in his hand? Did he ask for it? Did you press it?

 

Or say it's a gentleman.  Did he take your number? Ask for it?  Do you know he'll call, or is he a Polar Bear?

This would be easier if we knew what your product is.......otherwise its too generic!

I like the hon thing..Tell me more....And this polar bear prefers a warm beach....but will still dive into the cold Bay next year. 

Current mood: Intrigued and a polar bear thinking sushi and wine are good..3 glasses done....OMG not 3??    It's the weekend!

 

 



Hon, as in honey sugar baby sweet doll-face thing, you :) Don't take it personal...I'm from California.

 

What Bay? And by the Way.  How about that Elevator Pitch? I still have a deadline.  And I'm "grounded" until further notice.

Got it.  And thanks for the "Add."  Done!!!!!

Pat



Pat. Are you "Done!!!!!", as in, over and out? That would be sad for me, since I've enjoyed your comments so much, as one of my favorites!  You have wisdom and kindness to share, and I am hoping to have a new thread here with some lightness.

Hon, I stand educated.  You don't make girls answer the phone.  Since you don't call them.  Still, for a polar bear, you sure do look good on a warm sandy beach (step 4 complete).

Disagree.  You promised if I did all three you would share. You didn't. That's a man thing, not a polar bear thing.
