sales pitch | Explained
A sales pitch is a selling technique, usually a short presentation, designed to present a business, a product or a service to potential clients or investors, who are still somewhat unfamiliar with what is being offered. A product presentation using slides is quite common when it comes to a sales pitch; however, it can be delivered in a number of ways (product demos, videos, cold calls, etc.). Whatever the strategy used, the goal is to persuade someone and eventually close a sale.
Unlike in an Elevator Pitch, which lasts approximately 30 seconds, in a sales pitch, a salesperson has to convey the nature or features as well as specific benefits of what they are selling in less than 2 minutes. A perfect sales pitch will (1) identify a problem that consumers have; (2) acknowledge that problem as a challenge to be solved; (3) offer a product or service to solve that problem; and (4) provide proof of the benefits it brings to the consumers or buyers.
