The dreaded pitch…. The constant worrying about the perfect set up. Will my client fall in love with the idea, or will it be a flop? We’ve all been there before. It’s enough to stress anybody out!
Don’t worry! Professionals in the business have trouble with their pitches too. Here are some common problems that you may run into, and their suggestions on how deal with them.
1. Same old same old. Many professionals feel like they are continuously doing the same things in their pitches. This article by PRsay encourages you to ask what the function of each part of your pitch are. Beware of just using old-fashioned techniques that don’t add any value to your presentation!
2. Tailoring your pitch to a specific source Every pitch should be specific to the source you are pitching to; however, it can often be hard to find that element that makes it special. Another article from PRsay illustrates that pitches don’t necessarily need to be tailored to the client, they just have to align with that customers values. So next time you’re stressing out, keep these suggestions in mind, and you’ll nail it!
