It goes without saying that being prepared for your meeting is a must. Beyond being prepped to deliver the message, it’s critical to be prepared with all visual aids and technical tools.

Make sure that all required visuals and technical devices are working and accounted for. Don’t take any risks; inability to effectively deliver your pitch can cause you to lose your audience.
Keep it Focused
In other words, keep it short and to the point. You want to be sure and address every pertinent piece of information and/or question your potential client may have. You don’t however want to go into too much detail or overwhelm your audience. Not sure if you’re being direct enough? Deliver your pitch to a friend or co-worker. Ask them to help you identify areas that can use more insight, as well as those that can be summed up more efficiently. Having the feedback of a third party can really help you create a highly affective, focused sales pitch.
Host Your Meeting in Style
Hosting your sales pitch in a professional environment is also essential to your success. Be sure to select a space in which your potential client will be comfortable. Though you may be asked to deliver your pitch at your potential customer’s office, it’s recommended to hold your meeting in a space you can provide. This ensures that you have the time to set up and prep in advance. Don’t have a space in which to present? Consider a meeting room rental.
