When ever I meet new business people I’m curious to find out what they are doing, what is their business all about, so I ask. But too often I walk away and I’m still wondering what it is my new contact does, that is not good.
So here is something I think you should do, get a piece of paper – or even better use my comment form below – and create a little 10 – 15 second marketing and PR speech for your small business products and service. Here is what I tell people who ask – and some who don’t ask actually:
WinWeb provides an on-demand online small business infrastructure, including an OnlineOffice and LiveNet, a social networking community and online marketplace for small business and business startups in the US, Europe and Australia.
Every meeting is a opportunity for you and your business, so don not let it pass. Rehearse you speech until you can say it in your dreams, it will also help you to focus on your core business better. Your new contact can then work out if there is anything interesting for him/her in your portfolio. They may also remember you in month and years from now – so 10 to 15 seconds well spent.
So what do you tell others about your business, your products and services? Tell us about it, in a comment. ST.
