I am curious to hear anyone`s thoughts regarding sending a elevator pitch by email. The premise here is that you have the email address of someone whom you would love to give an elevator pitch to and that the email address is your only option of contacting this person. I am very curious to hear how you would handle that. Both positive and negative thoughts are very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
From your question, I infer that the "person" is not someone with whom you have much (if any) relationship because you only have their email- so I` assuming your reason for contacting them would be to start some dialogue?
It`s been my experience that the "traditional" elevator pitch isn`t the best way to begin if this is your situation. As you craft your initial approach message consider:
- What do you know about the person that you can use as a "bridge" to establishing some level of communication?
- Why do you think they might be interested in learning more about you and your business?
- Besides the potential investment $$, what other reasons do you have for connecting with this person?
Hope this helps.
