Step 7: Develop your personal sales pitch


A sales pitch is a very brief description of your business that includes your product’s features and benefits. A good spoken sales pitch tells people who you are, what you sell, and why they want it in less than thirty seconds!

There are many reasons and times when you will wish you had your sales pitch perfected.cartoon-boy-giving-sales-pitch-to-customer

It could be meeting someone new who you think could really use your product or service.

It could be while you’re out with a friend or family member and they start to tell someone about what you’re doing.

It could be at the bank or at your Community Futures office, telling someone who could loan you money to help you get started.

The only way you’ll be able to makes sales is by letting people know you have something they need or want.

This Step is all about helping you develop your personal sales pitch.
