Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Challenge from ProBlogger. The challenge? Write an Elevator pitch.
An elevator pitch is described as a statement that can be said within the time limits of an elevator ride. Does that mean you should be talking during the entire ride, or should you leave room for questions or comments?
What I typically say, briefly, is "My name is Donna Harris and I'm a REALTOR® with RE/MAX. Whether you're buying or selling your home, I'll be with you every step of the way." I've used this tag line for years. It's written on almost everything I do, so people recognize it when they see it.
The above gives plenty of time for someone to then ask me how the market is, which opens up a two-way conversation which then allows the other person to be a little more comfortable, in which I can then ask for their card or email address to add to my eNewsletter.
If I can see the other person is just going to continue to stare, I might continue the above with, "I concentrate on Residential real estate, New and Pre-Owned. Have you thought about making a change?"
I really like the elevators with mirrors in them because I can practice to myself when no one else is there. I think my mouth moves funny when I talk, so I practice my facial expressions.
Austin, TX and the surrounding areas of Lakeway, Bee Cave, Westlake Hills, Cedar Park, Round Rock, Spicewood, Circle-C, Steiner Ranch, and everywhere in between... Are you packed yet?
