I have to admit I am a Shank Tank addict. Shark Tank comes on television weekly. Each week I find myself running home to watch this powerful television show that test entrepreneurs, business owners, and CEO’s as to how well they know their business. This leaves me to ask… How well do you know your business?
Are you ready for the real world Shark Tank?
The Shark Tank series features a panel of entrepreneurs and business executives called "Sharks" who consider offers from other entrepreneurs seeking investments for their business or product. Sharks are particularly interested in how well you know your business, target market, your business schematics, and most importantly your business numbers. In the real world it is essential that we know these things for business clarity and success. If asked questions do you have the answers to what makes your business operate and run daily?
Some questions the Shark Tank team asks to the business owner/ entrepreneurs are:
- What are your sales for last year?
- What are your projected sales for this year?
- What is your annual income/evaluation for this year and next year?
- What is the lifetime value of your customer?
- What does your business do, and why should the Shark Tank investors invest in you?
Now if you have good answers to these questions, a good elevator pitch, and presentation it’s quite possible that you will walk out of the room with a Shark investing a nice nest egg in your business. On the other hand if your answers to these questions don't make sense, your elevator pitch fails to convince, your presentation stinks, or fails to meet the mark (to the Sharks) you will walk out empty handed and almost in tears.
The more you know about your business the better prepared you are to investors. Learn everything there is to know. If there are things that you don’t know or understand about running a business attend workshops, take a class, get some specialized business training, or hire a professional in that area. If your sales presentation need fine tuning, perhaps you may want to have an elevator pitch professional help write your sales pitch so you too can be ready when a Shark Tank Investor comes your way to plant seed money into you and your business.

How strong is your elevator pitch? Is your elevator pitch strong enough to grab someones attention, and engage them to want to learn more about your business? Is your elevator pitch packed with a whole lot of nothing that bores the average listener with the all about you jargon? Or does your elevator pitch get the job done every time?
An elevator pitch is defined as a persuasive message to get people to take action in the time needed to take an elevator ride. So as you step into the elevator you just realized that the head of the multi-million dollar company that you have been looking to get business from is already in the elevator and going up to the 80th floor. You realize that you have just about 30 seconds to get him interested in what your business can do for him. As the elevator rises you introduce yourself and start to talk. Are you ready because here is the moment that your elevator pitch becomes the star?
The plan is to plan for situations such as this. Great elevator pitches are created and not guessed at, or improvised. Understanding that a good elevator pitch can be worth thousands or even millions for you, does not let you leave it to chance or happenstance. Write your best elevator pitch out or have a professional prepare one for you. Look at elevator pitch samples, check out elevator pitch templates. Learn how to write a winning elevator pitch. There are several examples of elevator pitches on the internet. Once it's prepared, memorize it, say it loud and proud in front of the mirror, family, friends, and associates. Fine tune several elevator pitches for each target market that you service, or occasion.
Elevator pitches can be used in almost every situation... business networking affairs, meetings, conferences, or standing on line at the supermarket. If given 30 seconds to make your impression are you hitting the mark, or missing it all together?Submitted by Sherise Patterson$5 Elevator Pitch- http://www.simplytoempower.com/elevator-pitch-pro.html
