OK.  Let me count.  You were polite as you were begging me with your multiple pleases.  You were unfair with your lame comment.  And you were harsh regarding someone actually answering the phone.  Not bad for a newbie.

But what you missed GW was the fact I do not phone chicks.  I am a polar bear (see my profile pics), an endagerd specie.  Chicks call me up. 

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




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

Please please please share with me the lamest thing you ever said to a chick that made her answer the phone when you called, lol.

I have elevator eyes with a one liner.  Sure I would share it, but you have to ask me politely and in an unfair, harsh tone.

Current mood: Intrigued and on my 2nd glass of wine, it's the weekend!

Ever see the movie "Working Girl"?  Everyone's selling something.  Goods, services, wit, charm, date-worthiness, whatever. And, with a typical attention span of about 30 seconds, how do you plan to best use the precious time of your potential buyer?

 

 

 

Do you have an Elevator Pitch? Have you considered the importance? If you had one, would you share it?

PS, I especially invite comments because I'm working on one for a new product, due Monday!

Sure Pat! It's an overview of whatever passion you hope to convey...very short, concise, to intrigue your audience and get a conversation started.  AKA the one-liner.

 

 

 

It's an approach intended to be delivered during the span of an elevator ride. 

 

 

 

Do you remember how Melanie Griffith's character takes a low-level job, but has killer ideas, which she delivers in an elevator? By the end of the movie, she lives happily ever after, and it was all because of those 30 seconds. That scene is how the term came about.  You can check it out on YouTube if you want to see a really great example.

 

Oh yeah, I'll add this: it can be used for anything in your life.  I know a guy that turned his Christian testimony into an Elevator Pitch. It's quite compelling.

Am I ever laughing at myself.  "Patch" is "Pitch."  That's what I get for not cleaning the smudges off my glasses before reading a post...
