Are You Ready for Opportunity to Knock?

Post by MegStewart » Wed May 31, 2017 4:52 pm

Successful people will tell you that some if not all of their success can be traced back to being in a position to take advantage of an opportunity that was presented to them. No matter what stage of the freelance or writing journey you are on, you can improve your readiness for success by sharing what you do best with everyone you know. One really great way to do this is by perfecting your elevator pitch!

So let's hear it!

What's your elevator pitch?

Tell us about you or your business in just a couple of sentences. If you need help crafting your pitch, give a bullet list of items and put "help" in your reply headline. Everyone feel free to jump in on posts requesting help with an elevator pitch and give your feedback or suggestions. Keep it constructive please!

A bit about me: I've taken my freelancing to another stage by incorporating myself; so essentially I am branding and selling myself, which is typically if you're a freelancer. You normally offer a service; however, I offer four:

-Web Mastery (I.e.: web design, web development..)
-Journalism (i.e.: content writing, editing...)
- Management (i.e.: web managing, social media managing..)
-Marketing (i.e.: advertising, promotional service, consulting..)

I would like assistance with having a better pitch when it comes to companies, organizations and individuals who may or may not be potential clients. Thank you in advance.

Can you tell us more about how you find clients? Are you using a platform?

The idea of the elevator pitch is that if you got into an elevator and the doors closed and you had only the time until it arrives at the next floor to convince the person in there with you to hire you, what would you say?

The elevator pitch should in just a couple of sentences tell another person what you do best and what benefit they will gain by using your services.

Here's one formula to try:

Who you are and what you do
What problem do you solve for your clients?
Name or Product Drop (If you've worked with high profile clients, a friend of theirs, or specific products)
Why you do what you do (What's your goal?)

Give it a try and share your results here.

I would back up what Megan says but I put even more emphasis on the name/product. When I started out I had no major qualifications, I didn't have a big portfolio and I didn't have many freelancing projects to my name. I made it to the top of what was then Elance purely because i emphasized the fact that one of my earlier books was a bestseller.

It was fiction and it was not relevant to the jobs I was applying for (mostly content writing) but it was enough to convince them I was a good writer. These days I focus on mentioning similar jobs I've done for well known companies, websites and clients. I like to open and close with that and it's usually enough to get the job.

As a client, I'm also instantly drawn to anyone who has experience with a similar job and has worked for a leading company. Most clients want to know if they can trust that you're a good writer. In their eyes, anyone who has worked for a major magazine, newspaper or website fits that mold and they get the confirmation they seek.

A couple weeks ago, I was introduced to a few girls I'd not met before. It was kind of casual conversation where we were all stuck in the same room together, so we started talking about our jobs. Here's how that went, and precisely why I need to polish my elevator pitch.

"What do you do?"
"I write."
"You ride? Ride what?"
"No, I write. I write content for the web, and have a few small books which I sell online."
"Oh..."

Yeah, so we changed the subject to the weather.

In other words, I don't have an elevator pitch. And part of that is because I don't like talking about myself - the other part is because I feel that if I tell someone that I'm a writer and they look down their nose at me, that's a personal problem on their part. lol - not my nicest statement ever, but that's me.

Прерывисто дыша, мэн неистово жучит индийку растущим достоинством меж булок

Утром я проснулась через того, сколько меня кто то гладил сообразно ноге в чулочке, я открыла глаза , для моей кровати сидел хозин нашего дома и нашей комнаты, я же голая в чулках перед ним лежу, я спросила, а где мои друзья, он сказал, что они просили его передать мне, если проснусь придти для пляж, не хотели меня будить. Я говорю , а вы меня захотели разбудить да? Он погладил меня по ноге и нагнулся и поцеловал меня в губы.

Развернувшись, она кивнула головой на мой ноутбук, который был включен, для экране была открыта наша переписка с Олегом, естественно ей все стало понятно. Я для пару секунд потеряла рассудок, меня бояться раздражало, который по моим вещам лазит какая то мелкая дрянь, однако в свою очередь больше мучало то, сколько она всегда знает. Заходя немного вперед скажу, что решать такие проблемы приходится мирно, но мои эмоции взяли верх над сознанием.

Правдоподобная заднепроходная вздор c красногубой Виолой. Износоустойчивый работодатель ввинтил крендель в дупу

Разумеется и человек вроде уже опостылел. В умопомрачительном бреду ты просыпаешься, возвращаешься в реальный земля и начинаешь подсчитывать убытки такого праздника. Развод, это травма чтобы детей и родственников, напоследок, это беспричинно дорого, что делёжка только имущества приведёт к краху, а дебютировать всё прежде уже несть смысла, несмотря для то, который ты ещё молода и полна энергии. Энергия, вот что тебе не даёт покоя! Она бурлит и просит адреналина. Надо всего понять, какая энергия и куда её направить не разрушая созданного.
