Have you ever been asked “What’s your elevator pitch?”
Do you have an answer; are you prepared?
Last week at eBay on Location in Philly (at the beautiful Marriott Downtown), I got to use mine, while literally in the elevator!
In between sessions I had gone back to my room to recharge the electronics, and recharge myself with caffeine. On my way back downstairs a very well dressed woman, with a leather briefcase in hand, entered the elevator just before me. I could tell she was looking at me, but thought it might be my blinged-out PayPal Ambassador shirt 😉
She then says “What is the Social Networking Nanny?”
I reply “We help get small businesses social, on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn” and hand her a business card. She smiles and says “Thank you.”
*ding* Elevator door opens and she exits onto her selected floor.
