I’ve been helping people craft better pitches since 2003. Here are the TOP 5 Mistakes I see people make:
- Using the “Kitchen Sink” Pitch–telling the listener your entire life story instead of what’s relevant to them
- Being too vague
- Not explaining why you are THE BEST or at least why you are different from the competition
- Not getting to the point. Just because you have 10 minutes to make a pitch to someone, doesn’t mean you should use all of that time
- Being boring–If you don’t GRAB their attention now, you’ll lose them for good.
