What Is a Pitch?

A pitch is a brief and impactful sales presentation designed to capture interest and prompt the audience to take the next step. Whether you’re aiming to pitch your idea to investors, promote your product, or attract new customers and collaborators, a well-crafted pitch is essential.

You might be familiar with the concept of an “elevator pitch.” It’s the most condensed form of a pitch, where you’ve compressed your business idea into the briefest, most concise description possible. The term originates from the idea that as an entrepreneur, you should be capable of presenting your idea within the short time it takes to ride an elevator, typically about 30 seconds. To succeed in this, you must identify the absolutely crucial message to communicate.

Create a Foundation for Your Pitch with the NABC Model

To establish a robust foundation for your pitch, we typically utilize a model called “NABC.” The NABC model can assist you in crafting a pitch that is both precise and engaging. It guides you in defining your idea and thinking through what, in turn, makes it valuable to your customers.

N – Need

What need or problem do you want to solve for your customers? By clearly defining the need your product or service addresses, you can arouse interest and demonstrate the value of your solution.

A – Approach

What approach do you want to use to solve the problem? Describe your unique method or process that differentiates you from the competition and gives you an advantage.

B – Benefit

What are the benefits of your product or service that make it unique and worth investing in? Here you can present facts, reference cases, or other evidence of how your solution can benefit your potential customers.

C – Competition

What sets you apart from the competitors? Highlight what makes customers choose you over other options in the market.

Answer these four questions with one or two sentences, and you’ll have a concise foundation for your pitch.

Tailor Your Pitch for Different Situations and Target Groups

Remember that context, platform, and target group affect how you formulate your pitch. Whether it’s at a networking event, via phone, or through digital meetings, you need to be able to communicate your message in a concise and clear way. Adapt your presentation to what investors, customers, collaborators, or other stakeholders want to know, and focus on solving their problems and presenting an attractive solution. We can help you prepare for different scenarios, from personal meetings to TV or radio presentations.

The First and Last Seconds of Your Pitch Are Crucial

The delivery of your pitch is just as important as the content. Focus on creating a strong opening, a “hook,” that captures the listener’s interest and sparks their curiosity. Challenge with a controversial question or surprise with a sensational claim. At the end of your pitch, be sure to clearly define the next steps for the recipient and offer a concrete action to take.
