LET'S TALK

How To Explain What You Do with Clarity and Confidence

2 - brand messaging & positioning Nov 03, 2022
 

Have you ever gotten tongue tied when someone asks you what you do?

I know I have!

Today, I’m wrapping up my "Brand You" series by sharing tips and a script that gets people curious and excited about what you do.

"What do you do?" Is one of the first questions people ask, literally everywhere you go - networking events abound. And each time you go to the grocery store, meet neighbors, go to the kids' soccer match, attend holiday parties, it is a chance to meet clients or people who know your potential clients.

But, if you do not have an engaging answer to the question, you will lose people when you begin speaking. And you’ll leave opportunity on the table.

However, when you have a compelling “What Do You Do?” statement, people will immediately know why they want to work with you or refer you to friends or colleagues.

And you’ll instantly stand out among the crowd because the majority of consultants and coaches don’t do this well.

I have been a business owner for 15 years, studied modern marketing, and working with hundreds of clients on their business development, brand building, and marketing. I'ver heard it many times, when people get the blank stares, they feel like they need to work on their pitch.

There is a difference between a pitch and an engaging story of your business, and that is what we will talk about in this episode.

For consultants and coaches, traditional sales don’t work.
A pitch is about sales.
A story is about service.

I have a free PDF that goes along with today's episode. Check it out here: www.betsyjordyn.com/script.

It’s time to share the story of what you do with clarity, confidence and credibility!
