4 Steps To Using An Elevator Pitch
A polished elevator pitch is an essential tool for any payroll service/HCM salesperson as it will allow them to quickly and effectively communicate a payroll service's value proposition; plus, it will also set them apart from the competition. By mastering this brief (10 – 30 seconds) and powerful statement, you will be able to articulate the things that set you apart from the competition.
Sample Elevator Pitch:
"Since 20XX, we have been helping business owners like you solve their X, Y, and Z problems. More specifically, we help our payroll and HCM clients…
By the way, here are a few client testimonials from companies similar in size to yours."
4 Steps To Using Your Elevator Pitch.
Step 1: Assess The Person/Group: Before you go into your elevator pitch, ask yourself...
Step 2: Be Concise - Make sure your elevator pitch is brief and concise. It should last about 10 – 30 seconds, although I have done 90-second elevator pitches for group presentations. Remember, read your audience.
Step 3: Look For Opportunities During Your Discovery Questions - I always like to ask some discovery questions BEFORE I use my elevator pitch. Why? I get to leverage the information learned from my discovery phase.
Step 4: Be Confident - One of the most important elements in your elevator pitch is confidence. Believing in yourself, your business, and what you offer will get a prospect/referral partner excited about your offering.
