How to Give a Great Elevator Pitch [INFOGRAPHIC]

Giving a great elevator pitch can be an art form, which requires practice and skill. Our infographic is designed to re-iterate and educate on the basic steps to a great presentation.  Every situation will require a specific plan to target your audience, regardless if the presentation is to sell a product, present an idea, or close a sale.

Step One of our infographic is to establish your goal. This is the key to a great elevator pitch. In sales first impressions can be everything and the same idea applies when presenting to an audience. Simple concepts like visual aids, action words, and tone of voice can elevate a presentation to a level of professionalism that will impress an audience. One key factor that is often overlooked is acting authentic. The term “keep it real” applies directly to presenters because now more than ever people are specifically looking for authenticity and over the top sales techniques usually work against the presenter. Act like yourself and present passionately about the topic to grab the audience and get them excited about the presentation. A great tool is practicing in front of family and friends because they are the best judge on authenticity.

The infographic shows the steps on controlling movement in order to maximize use of the stage and presentation tools. These simple movements can amplify your presentation and engage the audience.

At the end of the elevator pitch conclude with summarizing the main points in a clear and concise manner. Build the conclusion to a final statement that will lead the audience to act on the main topic of the presentation whether its buying a product, using a specific service, or asking for a vote or support. These basic steps with a combination of situation specific adjustments can lead to a great presentation that will inspire.
