Add feeling to your 30-second introductions for greater success

Uncategorized Oct 12, 2018

Do you cringe thinking about introducing yourself at networking events?

I used to a lot.

I would stumble and fumble and always feel like there was a better way to describe myself and what I did no matter how much I practiced.  And I noticed I wasn't alone in that experience. Seemed like everyone either has that awkward moment before introducing themselves or they say something that sounds just like every other person in their industry.

Things started to change for me when I attended a networking event and helped a friend video attendees talking about their businesses. I listened and listened and there was one thing that missing for me over and over.

Didn't matter if the attendees were in insurance, banking, marketing or personal training. I was looking through the camera, listening to them and just yearning to hear how they were going to make their clients feel. When the person struggled a bit, I asked "how do you want your clients to feel?" as a prompt and their faces would light up. They went from stumbles and blank stares to their really interesting and committed selves.

That's the secret - how do you want your clients to feel?

We all know the basics of an introduction:

  • Who you are
  • What you do
  • Who you do it for
  • And what you help them accomplish

Combine that with how you want your clients to feel, and you have a winning introduction that is completely flexible:

  • My name is Joey Chandler. I'm a purpose coach and I help solo-entrepreneurs create 30-second introductions that work. I figure that helps people feel great about themselves and their business.
  • I'm Joey Chandler and you know how it's hard to create 30-second introductions? Well, I'm a purpose coach and I do exactly that which to help my clients feel great about themselves.
  • I'm a purpose coach and I help people feel great about themselves and their businesses. Out of curiosity, what does that mean to you?

This works because you get in touch with how you want people to feel, which empowers you, and allows you to effectively speak about what you do. You become your real, authentic and committed self. People will connect with you because you are connected with you.

Doesn't happen overnight and takes a little practice but it's totally doable. Then once you have your 30-second intro down, you can walk into any networking event worry-free. And that feels great.

To help you out, I created a form that generates 4 30-second introductions after you answer a few questions.

Let me know how it goes. I would love to hear how this helps with your networking and growing your business.

All the best,

Joey
