What does your SIMPLE PITCH say about YOU and your work?
You've got just 30 precious SECONDS to impress the person you're speaking to (who knows NOTHING about you or your work).
How do you respond to arouse their interest enough they make the effort to take a few minutes out of their busy day to find out more about the "intriguing artist they just met"?
It's the artists equivalent of the all-important "Elevator Pitch" and when done right has the power of a Jedi mind trick!
SO DO YOU...
a) Spend 10 secs. of your valuable 30 opening and closing your mouth like a goldfish while mentally scrambling around for the right words to accurately articulate how awesome an artist you actually are...before blurting out a few sentences of fairly incomprehensible nonsense which leaves your listener dazed, confused and searching for the exit while YOU beat yourself up over the wasted opportunity the moment the exchange has ended
b) Look them in the eye, smile and confidently deliver 2-3 JAW-DROPPING pre-prepared sentences, you have committed to memory whilst handing over your business card leaving your listener mentally going over the exchange long enough to check you out on the inter-web machine as soon as they get the chance?
So, hand on heart. Was your answer "a)"? If it was, you need help! And if you're still not convinced let me share with you that the FIRST TIME one of my students delivered his re-vamped Simple Pitch gallery owners (whilst showing them his portfolio) he was SIGNED UP INSTANTLY and has since gone on to sell a number of his original pieces within just a few months - one of which SOLD within 20 mins. of being installed! Honestly guyz - this one is a "no-brainer"🤯
