Whether you have a story to tell or you really want to try and pitch a new idea to potential investors, you need to get your point across as accurately and as professionally as possible. When it comes to nailing your next pitch, there are a few things to consider to really make sure that you give yourself the best chance of success as possible.
Prepare and practice
If you think you can go into a room with investors or managers and “wing” your presentation, chances are you're not going to be very successful. Planning is the key to success and without it, you are not giving yourself the best chance. Understanding how you want to achieve your goals, practicing your presentation and preparing yourself for any questions that may come up during your presentation is imperative.
Keep it simple
You may have a lot of ideas and some good points to make, however, you don't want to spend hours trying to get your point across. When it comes to a successful pitch, the old ‘KISS’ rule is a good reminder of not to get too carried away. You want to keep it short, sweet and simple. Don't rush your presentation and try to stick to the key points.
Step it up with PowerPoint
Keep your audience engaged during your pitch with a well-designed PowerPoint presentation. Whether it's for an investor or for internal needs, a quality PowerPoint presentation will keep your audience engaged throughout your speech. Make sure your PowerPoint presentation is well-designed and complements your pitch.
Solve a problem
If you can demonstrate how your idea or service can be a unique way to address people's needs, chances are your audience is going to be very interested in what you have to say. Investors are always looking for a new way to become a clear market leader, so if you can provide bulletproof statistics, your pitch can be very persuasive.
