SINGLE STITCH PITCH

PITCHING IS THE SPECIFIC MANNER IN WHICH COMMUNICATION OF AN IDEA,

A BUSINESS PROPOSITION OR A CALL TO ACTON IS DONE.  

It may have elements of advise, inducements, sense of urgency, persuasion, insight, comparison, analogies, education and other aspects and the central idea is to:

 HEIGHTEN ONE’S INTENTION TO BUY

 INVEST IN AN IDEA / BUSINESS / MOVEMENT 

 ELECTORAL INFLUENCE FOR OFFICE

PITCHING VS. SELLING

Usually we mix up Pitching with Selling. Selling happens when you have built rapport with the buyer through regular interactions over time and this relationship enables you to engage in low or medium value deals where the stakes are not very high.Pitching on the contrary has very high stakes and it ends in either a yes or a no, there are no shades of grey here.

WHY PITCH?

Why is it a pitch and not a conversation or a discussion? Because in a pitch there is intention to move the recipient to action. The idea is big hence we call it pitch. Either the buyer already has a need and is interested in buying or the buyer could be moved towards a buying desire with the pitch, both possibilities exist.  

If it is a no, one doesn’t flog oneself to exhaustion with the buyer like most sales people do.  Both the buyer and the seller know that the exit light has turned red and it is time for the seller to leave. Only mere polite courtesies are pending.  It is therefore of immense significance that your

Cognitive Augmenters

One has an adaptive brain and it can cope with these pressures. Most plough through, but some languish at the work place with chronic stress & unmanaged anxiety. It can be a killer.  

Stress, anxiety and depression now make up 43.8 per cent of all workplace illness. 

 NOTHING IS STABLE ANYMORE AT THE WORK-PLACE.  

THERE ARE TOO MANY PARAMETERS, VARIANTS, ASPIRATIONS AND DYNAMICS AT PLAY.

AVOIDING THE PREMATURE PITCH 

As habits would suggest, when one receives consent to pitch one’s proposition, it is customary to litter the session with one’s presentation deck with features, benefits, lineaments and distinctive characteristics of one’s offering but in essence one is merely stammerring out an apology of conformity. These days client's attention span cannot stand up to limp and inert presentation lashings. Prior to pitching therefore, an overlay of impactful freezeframe, hooks, flash forwards and substantiality is needed and this is established through a dynamic change story, relevant connectors and building tension and anticipation.

OUT THESE ESSENTIALS 

 

ARRESTING ONE’S INITIAL URGE TO PITCH MOBILISES CLIENT’S INTEREST

AND ATTENTION IS INVESTED.

 

The client has offered his/her tacit consent to proceed and now would like to unpack the intricately wound story and its applicability to present context.

One may call it pitching but in essence it is also a well-crafted regulation of information flow pulsed in such a way that it invokes client’s attention, amplifies interest and elicits consent. Without an emotional surge in the client’s state, one cannot commission the next stage of the buying process hence the significance of
