Episode 03: Pitch Perfect

Hey Hey fellow More-Than-One-Thing’ers,

Pitch perfect is here, and as promised here’s the resource to go with it. I’ve created a group and given access to all the members, so technically all ANDies should be able to view it no problems.

In the podcast I refer to an article and the tips shared. You can read the article here.

One of you asked me a great question, so I thought I’d share it here for everyone:

Question: “Do pitches have to be decks? (aka slides)”
Short answer: No
Long answer: Research the recipient thoroughly and go with the format you think will be best suited for them, it may be a one page pdf, or even a short video. Ultimately you want to improve the chances of getting their attention and keeping their attention. Whichever format you choose, make sure you’re engaging.
Have a listen and let me know your thoughts? Anything you’d add? Or any tried and tested methods you’d like to share? Remember you can also contribute to the podcast by dropping me a voice message. Click here if you’d like to share your story with me.

Enjoyy

Unfortunately I am not getting access to the resources probably same problem we had in our session lol anyway I’ve sent a request

No worries, I’ve updated the group with your other email. You should now have access :+1:t4:

This was SO insightful! Just to be clear: pitching is synonymous with proposals, or am I way off track?

They’re part of the same team.
I’d say a pitch is your introduction, and the proposal is your plan.

In a pitch you don’t give everything away, you want to give enough to grab their attention and get that call back. Afterwhich you deliver your proposal. You go into the maths behind your idea, they would most likely provide further insight on their side, their objectives and expectations.

A proposal is usually the results of a pitch. It’s the “okay, here’s how everything’s going to go down” and it should happen when you’ve got an understanding that this relationship is going forward.

Nowadays, elements of a proposal can be found in pitches, because the reality is no-one has the time for the back-and-forth’ing. We want all the cards on the table and we want to make an informed choice. So you could also call a pitch a “lite” proposal.

Additionally, you can also use pitches to test the water. So you’d say “hey I have this idea” and you leave the “how it’s going down” aspect out. If you get a favourable response, then you follow up with your proposal.
