No doubt, from the biggest business ventures to the smallest news clippings, it all begins with a well-crafted pitch.
Story pitching is an important, yet often overlooked, part of a strong integrated marketing strategy. Whether you’re pitching an idea for your next social media campaign or an idea for a news feature on your latest business endeavor, that pitch is the seed that can grow into an exciting new promotional opportunity.
Bringing your ideas to fruition can be a fun and rewarding process, and no one understands the value of your venture more than you. But what about when you are ready to expand? How do you express to the public your campaign platform or to investors that your cause is a worthy one? Obtaining the chance to grow and succeed often comes from your ability to construct and submit a short, but persuasive presentation.
There are multiple occasions in which story pitching can be useful. For example:
- Sales Presentations: In a fast-paced business environment you want to express to potential buyers how your tangible good is both beneficial and better than the competition in a clear and concise way without wasting any time.
- News Story Promotions: Pitching your story to local media outlets is a good way to inform the public about what your organization is currently doing. Running an article or even a series of articles in a local or national publication exposes people to your brand and promotes interest in your company.
- Obtaining Investors: Finding and securing investors is an important part of any start-up or expanding venture. Presenting a solid case for these investments is a critical step in the procurement process.
