The 60 Second Elevator Pitch: An Essential Tool for Marketing Yourself

(Part 2 of a two-part series)

By Elizabeth Sagermann

Making a good first impression is key to growing your business and potential network. Therefore, a concise, snappy one-minute explanation of you and what you offer can become a vital tool for you.

You now have that one, very precious minute to tell them who you are, what you do and what you can do for them.  Sound easy? It's not! It takes time and thought to plan out what you want to convey in a short 200 words, lasting one minute!
