“Today, every business is an online business” – Unknown
Last week we looked at tools to grow a freelance business and those who play the biggest part in that are our clients. This week, we look at how to best pitch ourselves and our business, when speaking with new and existing clients. To help you with this, Ed speaks with Jenna Davies, who has worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs and business owners to pitch with confidence and impact.
Topics we will be covering, and questions we will be answering, include:
- What are the key things that make a big difference when pitching your business online?
- Tips on how to come across more confident online
- How much of a difference does investing in quality equipment make? E.g. camera, microphone, lights, etc.
- When I have the opportunity to pitch my business to someone, how can I make a great first impression every time?
- How should I structure, start and end a pitch?
…and so much more.
