A positioning statement is going to clearly define your purpose to your employees, your competitors, and your consumers. It is going to be clear and to the point and answer to your listeners why you are unique in the field or market you are in. You positioning statement needn't be a slogan or a catchy rhyme that will help people to remember you through silly phrases, but rather it needs be purposeful and to the point so people not only remember who you are but what your goals are and what you feel you can accomplish.Continue reading "What is a positioning statement and why do you need one?"
A positioning statement needs to tell your employees as well as consumers who you are and what your focus and goals are. It needs to convey the message of your mission statement and your vision for your company all in one sentence to one short paragraph.
You will want to begin developing your mission statement with a team of company employees who are helping you unite your company as one. As a team you will discuss ideas and vision you have in mind for your company and together come up with one main goal.
An elevator speech is a personal introduction of yourself that not only introduce you but also your product, service, or company. An elevator speech should give people you meet a good introduction of you and a desire to know more about what you do. An elevator speech is usually no longer than thirty to sixty second long (you don't want to annoy the person by trapping them into hearing your whole sales pitch!).
To have a truly great elevator speech, you must believe in what you are saying. You cannot be embarrassed to use your elevator speech, but rather you must speak with confidence with a real interest in what you do. If you're not interested, your listener will not be either.
You will want to open your elevator speech with what is referred to as a, "hook". A hook is very much what is sounds like, it is meant to grab your listener in. You want to peak their interest right at the start of your speech so that they want to hear more! A good hook will peak your listeners interest.
