Creating and sharing an elevator pitch is one of the best things you can do to start building your personal brand, your network, and increase your visibility on social media.
So, what is an elevator pitch?
They’re short, inspirational speeches (shortened from the original version’s ideal length of 45-60 sec to just 20) that allow business professionals and job applicants to quickly present themselves and why they are perfect for this position in the time it takes for an elevator ride.
Think of an elevator pitch as a high-level overview that provides value while evoking emotion with someone who may or may not know you. It’s a great opportunity for a quick connection with someone new, whether in person or through social media platforms like LinkedIn.
