An Elevator Pitch
Once described as the words you’d use if it were just you and your ideal prospect on an elevator to the top floor, this messaging element does a little more than a tagline. At BWST, we’ve adopted an elevator pitch construct called the I/Why/You pitch.
I/Why/You pitches have three components.
I: who I am and the firm I represent
Why: detail on what I do and why other clients choose to work with me
You: why you, the prospect, might be interested (based on your research)
Complimentary Messaging Help
In support of sales organizations looking to be poised and ready for our country's reopening, Bill Walton Sales Training is offering a set of complimentary tools for prospecting. Areas will include message support, email structure and contact management tips. First Series: free taglines.

The current COVID-19 Pandemic is forcing us all to shift – personally and professionally. With lockdowns in affect in most states and municipalities, workers of all types are being forced into remote work. For some, it’s no big deal. For others, it’s a huge transition as limited human contact, lack of access to printers, and the removal of informal networks is now gone.
March 16, 2020: As we enter another week of our National Emergency surrounding COVID-19, I wanted to share with you a few tips that may help us all better manage ourselves, our loved ones and our businesses over the coming weeks. We are featuring an online event at the end of the month that will delve deeper into these areas where we'll help you leverage your energy versus your time to achieve personal success and renewal.
