You cannot possibly tell your entire business story in such a short time, but that is notrepparttar objective. The objective is to break it down to its most essential elements, and get them to ask for more.

Several years ago I went to a high school reunion (never mind which one!) and saw a friend that I hadn't seen since graduation. I asked him what he did for a living. He said "I fix bones!" (It was pretty noisy and I thought he said, "I fix phones", but that's another story.) That grabbed my interest, so I asked him to tell me exactly what that meant and he explained that he was an orthopedic surgeon, he had his own practice, was chief of orthopedic surgery at a major local hospital, and that he specialized in foot disorders. Ba-da-bing, ba-da-boom! He grabbed me withrepparttar 117844 "elevator speech" (in this case, just three words) and then, once he had my interest, took more time to tell merepparttar 117845 details. Perfect!

Work on your elevator speech. Practice it out loud when you are alone; it will get betterrepparttar 117846 more times you say it. Then, when those big potential customers come along, you'll be ready to hook 'em and reel 'em in!
