It is very important that you understand your personal hits style. That is because you will be doing quite a bit of promoting of your, services, and courses. You will need to get comfortable with asking your audience to invest in your course. Here are some common pitch styles. See if you can pick out which one most accurately reflects your own personal style.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

This style typically go between very orderly to very aggressive. It may take a few minutes go between aggressive and 40. There tends to be two extremes. Audiences typically either respond with rate adoration because of the appearance of transparency and willingness to cut product their weaknesses.


The Girl Next Door

This style comes across as super nice. They seemingly give endlessly. The pitch is typically given by first asking the audience if it is all rights to offer them something. The audience typically responds in a positive way. The downside is that once you start off with the girl next door style, it is difficult to go to a more aggressive style later.


Cloak and Dagger

The cloak and dagger style is one in which the promoter first starts in a very matter of fact way. They typically have a very rupture way of delivering content. After delivering the content, the promoter then offers a strong argument for stand regarding purchasing the course. The audience typically appreciate that direct of approach that this style exhibits.


Please Baby Baby Please

This style typically sells a bit whiny and typically employees a guilt trip tactic to get the audience to register for the course. This tactic will work on some, but is not a long term strategy for pitching a product or course.


It is important to know that each one of these strategies can have good outcomes but also unintended consequences. We will be exploring this further this week in 1% mentorship group mastermind.

Your Business Commercial

30 Second Business CommercialHave a compelling response to the question "What do you do?" or "Tell me about you" Make it brief and interesting. If you only have 30 seconds, give them enough of an idea about what you do so that they seek you out to hear more lately. Even in a situation where you have more time, be brief but to the point and then allow them to ask questions. Their questions will give you an idea of their particular interest.Join Groups and NetworkJoin or create a leads exchange group. Find or create a group that has members with businesses aimed at a similar target market to yours. Job seekers find others looking in the same industries. If you join a group where everyone markets to consumers and you market to businesses, you probably won't be able to give or get many leads.Use every social occasion as a networking opportunity. Have your business cards ready if someone asks for one.Build Business RelationshipsForm strategic partnerships with others. If there are other businesses related to yours, seek them out and establish your own relationships. For example if you are a wedding planner you will want to form partnerships with florists, photographers, bands, DJs etc. Refer to your strategic partners and they in turn will refer to you. Job seekers find some partners who are at a higher level than you and who when they find jobs will help you find one in their new company. Of course you must plan to do the same for them.TestimonialsMake a list of testimonials from customers to use with potential customers or employers. Make these testimonials part of your brochure and/or website, and have as a separate document to put into proposals.Domain Name & LogoUse a domain name that tells what your business is i.e. When someone calls Bob they will probably ask him what he builds. The email address itself opens conversation.Create a unique style or logo that makes you memorable. Establish yourself or your logo as a brand so people remember you. Frank Purdue did it as a person. Coca Cola does it as a logo. You can do it too!How do you Market Your Business?

Emancipation from public education

As parents we must make tough decisions in regards to our kids. The decisions we make will impact their lives even after they are all grown up. Just imagine for one moment that a decision that you made ruined or deeply impacted your child’s life in a negative way. How will you deal with knowing that your decisions may have harmed your child.Well, believe it or not the decision to send children to public school has proven to have some major negative ramifications. Many children pick up some very bad habits and ways from being in public school. Many of our young people are exposed to drugs, alcohol, sex, homosexuality, violence and more just from going to public school. Some children face the pressures of bullying and not being able to keep up among other things. All of this is the result of being in an unstable and hostile environment.When a child is in a hostile environment they are unable to function properly. There is no such thing as telling your child to merely concentrate and ignore what‘s happening around them. A statement such as that , suggest that you don’t have an answer for your child and therefore can only put the situation on the back burner. Many parents find out the hard way that this decision may ultimately harm their child’s future. The instability in the public school environment has helped lead to the rapid decline in academic achievement in our schools. This is why there is such a huge increase in home education. The public school system has failed our children.Home education has such a rapid increase, especially amongst African Americans, which is primarily due to the insufficient educational process of the public school. It is estimated that more than 2,000,000 American children are home schooled. This number will continue to increase as parents awareness is sparked. More and more parents are taking the plunge into home schooling as they realize that they can better educate their children.Black home schoolers are especially motivated to take on the role as parent-teacher seeing that African American children have a higher dropout rate than any other race. The only way to protect your child from becoming a part of this dropout statistic is to become and early dropout through emancipating yourselves from the state institutional education. Please understand that I’m referring to having your child drop out of a failed institution and reviving their learning through home education. We here at The Black Home Schoolers Association would like to help in every way we can. Please feel free to contact us or visit our website at:
