Your elevator pitch should be good!

Pat Weber has a guest posting to summarize her tips on perfecting your elevator pitch. She writes:

Planning is second nature to an introvert while speaking, speaking, speaking usually puts an extrovert in the zone. Either style can speak an elevator pitch fluidly like this:
Keep your pitch to around 100 words. As you hone it, write it out and chop, chop if necessary. That’s short.
Once you’ve honed a statement of what you do for a particular type client, focus on the benefit. You can get this by asking a few of your clients if you find yourself getting long winded. They’ll keep your focus on what you do, for who, to help with a problem.
Along with your name, offer something gives them more than your pitch. Direct them to your website or offer to help them so they want to know more.
