How Memorable Is Your 30-Second Commercial?

Anna Kruchten of Arizona "AnnaBananaRealty" reminds us to revisit our #0 Second Commercial or Elevator Speech. She provides some good tips on spicing it up a little and keeping it energized.

How Memorable IsAre you bored? You might be boring! Your 30-Second Commercial?

I don't know what things are like in your area of the country, but in Phoenix, there are so many networking opportunities, you could literally attend 4 meetings a day and not hit all of them.

You know the kind ... chicken caesar salad for lunch, and eveyone gets a chance to give their 10- to 30-second elevator speech. So be honest. How bored are you by the time it comes around to your turn? More to the point, how many people do you actually remember? How many names have you written down of those you want to meet afterwards?

So ... if you're bored during what can seem like an unending parade of uninspired introductions ... have you ever stopped to think about how bored other people might be listening to yours? Especially in a crowded industry like real estate!!! I was at a meeting just the other day, and I was one of 5 Realtors in the group! I had a teacher in grade school who used to say, "If you're bored, you're boring!" Sometimes, those lessons just keep on giving, don't they?

What can you do to spice up your self-promotion? Here are just a couple ideas:Spice up your 30-second commercial - be remembered!

  • Tell a story
  • Paint a word picture
  • Sing a song
  • Tune in to everyone's favorite radio station: WIIFM (What's in it for me?)
  • Recite a poem
  • Be funny
  • Wear a standout hat/shirt/coat
  • Have a startling call to action

People do business with those they know, like, trust ... and REMEMBER. Put on that thinking cap and set yourself apart. You'll see the changes in no time flat.
