Tips for a Successful Elevator Pitch – Engagement

Share

MediaMagic Elevator PitchWhile an elevator pitch needs to be short & to the point, it must also feature a well-defined objective. Every example used and point made must work to complement the point that’s being argued during the pitch. For instance, if a job aspirant starts a discussion with a possible employer during a career fair, then their elevator pitch must rotate around why they’re the best person for the job.

Prior to creating an elevator pitch, it’s crucial for you to actively envision the intended goal of the dialogue & formulate an objective from there.

The next step must be to explain how you’re going to accomplish your intended goal. For example, a job candidate must highlight the experiences and skills which make him/her the best person for the required position. Most professionals find this part of the elevator pitch quite challenging and end up losing their focus.

You want each single step of your elevator pitch to strengthen or support the proposed goal of the talk.

Lastly, it’s important that you let your intended prospect know why their role is so important for you to attain your goal. For instance, if the intended objective of your pitch is to acquire an investor for your company, then you want to emphasize how the investor’s assistance can benefit your company.

It’s critical that your elevator pitch is specific & crafted in a way such that your target audience knows why they’re invaluable for accomplishing the final goal.

What would you say if you were stepping into an elevator with Oprah or someone you wanted to connect with who would transform your business?

Creating A Press Release Tagline that Sizzles

Share

taglinesgettothepointA tagline, or many times called the subject line, is the first impression and the most important part of a press release. This is the very first item the media will see or hear.

A relevant & original tagline can grant you an amazing ability to intrigue your audience into reading further. This allows you to express something fascinating about your product or service. You then can use this tagline on almost everything, starting from your website to the letterhead and any other marketing tools you may use.

Taglines can help you transform your press release from average to something the media wants!

Below are some tips which can help you come up with press release taglines that sizzle:

Why Reinvent – Copy from the BEST

Study the covers of different magazines; check out different TV shows to try to identify specific sayings which catch your attention. Many of the top publications have spent millions in market research to ensure they capture the eyes of their readers.

KISS – Keep It Short and Sweet

Eliminate anything which may not be the most essential elements to what would get your audience intrigued so that they will want to read more. Preferably, you must try to reduce it to a single key element or at least look to keep it to no more than five to seven words.

Use Numbers – They Capture the Most Attention

Numbers are a great way to attract the reader’s eye to a clearly defined topic. You do not include all the details in the press release itself; however, it is a perfect place to showcase what you know and to have the editor wanting to know more.

Here are a few examples I have used over the years:

Where To Start With Attracting Publicity – Why An Expert Power Bio Will Make You Money

Share

Everyone is always asking, “Where do I start?” when seeking the attention of the media.

You start with your Expert Power Bio!

Expert Power Bio - Media Magic

Rather than a resume, it all starts with your bio or what I refer to as your Expert Power Bio.

Here are a few reasons why the Expert Power Bio will make you money.

Stand Out from the Crowd

An expert power bio helps your product or service stand out from the crowd because it offers all the necessary info to your clients about you before making their final decision. It helps them know who you are, your experience in the given field, as well as why they must consider you before all the other experts in your field. With a powerful and influential bio, you get enough opportunity to be original and make yourself stand out even in the most competitive markets. A bio could help you develop an expert status in your industry even if you’re just a beginner. As a new business, there are numerous ways to have you positioned as an expert in a very short period of time.

Attract High Paying Clients

The most significant advantage you get by creating an expert power bio is that it greatly boosts your credibility as well as trustworthiness among your audience. As a result, this can lead to more sales and revenues. I have found that if you want to raise the price of your product or services, your target customers will happily accept the price increase since they’ll know that you truly deserve the additional investment. Thus, you can easily transition towards the next level without losing any of the trust and loyalty of your clients. Furthermore, a great bio also boosts your odds of finding high- paying clients in the near future.

Get Booked on TV and Radio

The media wants to know who you are and how you can benefit their followers. A good bio becomes very important if you want to gain some exposure through different media channels such as radio, TV, etc. With an Expert Power Bio, it makes it easy to pitch and get the opportunity to show up on these popular shows and magazines to become a well-known authority almost instantly in your field. Also, this allows you to break through all your worries and stresses and finally enjoy a lifestyle which you truly deserve.

 

At the end of the day it comes down to the fact that people want to know who you are and why they should listen to you.

You can grow your business almost overnight with this essential tool.

How to Get Booked on Radio – You Are More Powerful Than You Think

Share

Radio interviews have a life of their own. They can last a short moment, a month, or even years depending on how you market them.radiomic
If you haven’t been on the radio yet, now is your time. This is one of the quickest ways to showcase you as an authority figure and create leverage to grow your business.

One of the best places to look and get booked is on BlogTalkRadio.com. Blog Talk Radio is the world’s largest online talk radio and podcast hosting platform. There are thousands of shows in various categories. If you follow these few steps you can get booked almost instantly on the radio.

First, you want to have your media kit ready.

Second, research for radio shows that are relevant to your subject matter and determine if the listenership is a good match. Also be creative. Many times there are niche markets we can tap into.

Finally, reach out to the host with your media kit and possible topics they could choose from. When you start contacting the media, it is important to communicate your message clearly and concisely. You want to be sure that you are very clear about who you are and what your business is about. Don’t give too much information – you may overwhelm them and “turn off” the host!

Remember they do not want to provide free advertising but rather content that their listeners will want. Talk in terms of what the listeners will gain and the benefits of having you on the show.

If you help with marketing your presence on their show, include your marketing plans and intention. They love having access to new listeners. When a host knows it is a win-win-win, it is easy for them to say “yes.”
