Short, Memorable & Powerful 30 Second Networking Introductions

Your 30 second introduction...

(Main Rule: DON’T BORE THEM, DONT’ BORE THEM, DON’T BORE THEM!)

Your self-introduction needs to be stated in words, that you feel comfortable telling someone who you are, whether you're on the elevator, attending a social gathering, or attending a meeting.

Your introduction should be tailored to the specific people you are meeting. (HAVE 2-3 VARIATIONS)

Your self-introduction is usually a couple sentences that describe a concise summary of:

1 Who you are, and what you do (not always the first thing out of mouth…can be as a tag line at end)
2 Why that person may need what you offer (SHORT testimonial or story or question that engages or gets attention)
3 What distinguishes you and your service or product (Testimonial or emphasis on what is unique to you/your business)

How To Develop a Self Introduction

Keep your introduction brief. It's an opener with flair, not a complete description of everything you do. Your 30-60 Second Introduction should be:

1 short
2 concise
3 relevant
4 attention grabbing
5 persuasive
6 a call to action

Your introduction may not appeal to everyone - but that's the point. It's a narrowly targeted message. It's a way of "lasering" who you are and not trying to appeal to everyone you meet. Your introduction tells people who you are, what you do, and decide if they want to learn more about you, and or do business with you

Other Helpful Hints:

1. PAUSING before you speak gets others to look up and listen while you collect thoughts

2. PRACTICE/REHEARSE OUT LOUD to hear how it will sound to others

3. KNOW YOUR LINES…it will roll off your tongue more easily

4. Make it YOUR OWN

5. Keep it FRESH (if it is identical each time people stop listening altogether)

6. Use Props to grab and / or keep attention (flyer/photo/sample, etc)

7. LESS is MORE

WE DON'T HAVE TO BE PSYCHIC TO SEE OUR ANGELS!

Posted by Gloria Messenger on August 9, 2013 at 11:00am 1 Comment

On my personal quest for truth and meaning in life, I was alerted to the somewhat magical way synchronicity moves us forward. Happenings appear as beyond co-incidence when the universe aligns to our life adventure. We can engage the opportunity to lift the veil of forgetfulness!! This illusive 'veil' offers a gain in awareness of the Divine Timing assistance in a bigger picture vision and Soul voice.

WOW … the ability to see OUR Angels is…
