Voice training for quick persuasion
Because the exercise of the elevator pitch can help. On an elevator ride to the eleventh floor, you inform your counterparty about yourself and your activities and make him curious.
You have probably already arranged for a talk at the Dingdong of the elevator door for today.
The ultimate lift ride
The Elevator Pitch, this compact information in thirty seconds, is all about the essentials. You will not be able to accommodate details here, they are reserved for a later discussion. This is just a matter of attracting interest, creating a good mood and establishing a first contact.
If your counterpart is interested in your subject at all, you can now feel it and then take further steps. It can therefore depend very much on a thirty-second sequence. That is why I would like to work with you to create a short presentation of your person and your goals.
Answer in writing
- Who am I?
- What can I?
- How do I earn my money?
- For which company did I work and / or work?
- What does it stand for?
- What makes me or my service special?
- What problems do I solve?
Clear, concise, understandable
Now file your text until every word sits and every superfluous word is eliminated. And this goes like this:
- They formulate clearly and concisely and, above all, easily understandable.
- They use as little jargon as possible and no titles.
- They speak authentic, use images wherever possible, and create emotions for their counterparts.
- In the end, you offer a benefit to your conversation partner, something that helps him to get better in the future.
- And you end up with a way to call for action or a question.
Practice creates masters
When you have done that, train your text. Set a timer to thirty seconds and speak your text. Is that still too long? Then cut short. And talk again. Imagine your partner, look at him, look him in the eyes of the important words.
If you have done it several times in the given time, you are also looking for real practice objects such as friends, relatives, acquaintances. Or make a small parlor game at the next party.
Your facts with easy hand
Achieved by being able to deal with all the facts that concern your person as playfully and virtuoso as with the facts of your professional environment or your hobby. So you speak as fluently about yourself as about other topics.
And you will listen to your voice. The security in the matter, the choice of words, the routine, all these factors make sure that you are safe for yourself and with it your voice will reflect exactly this. So that you finally - with all modesty - make it clear to your counterpart, who you are and what you can do.
In the Elevator Pitch, you will present yourself, your activity and your ideas in thirty seconds. The facts are possibly linked with emotional and presented in simple language. A benefit should be visible to the call partner.
Decisive are preparation and practice. Because only when you are absolutely sure and can deal with your speech with agility, your voice will sound powerful and sonorous. And only then do you have a chance to win over your counterpart.
And now let's take a look at the situation at the beginning of this text: "And what are you doing?" Now you are prepared, you can start, you are relaxed and your voice transports what you want to express.
