Book Title: Elevator Speeches That Get Results
Author: Dorothy Tannahill-Moran
Publisher: Introvert Whisperer
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Written in a delightful conversational tone, Elevator Speeches That Get Results, is a very detailed an informative book on the art of creating effective elevator speeches. This is not a book for someone who is looking to master the short sales pitch, rather a book that allows the reader to learn how to introduce themselves and their brand effectively and quickly, making a great conversation starter, as well as getting people’s interest in your expertise/niche. It is longer than most books in this price range, which surprised me positively.
With the Author’s straightforward style, there is little fluff in the book, so you do not have to navigate through a ton of personal anecdotes that take away from the actual subject matter.
Overall a great book on elevator speeches.

Thanks, Claudia. Do you think it’s relevant for writers?
yes, I think it is relevant for any creative person who wants to sell some of their creations eventually. I find it a nice opener when trying to network, may it be for resources, for peer support or for actual potential sales. Hope that answered your question, Aura, blessings!
Thanks, Claudia, yes it did. Book pitching is something I need to learn. I’ll give this book a try.
I live in rural Kentucky, and around here an ‘elevator pitch’ becomes an ‘at-the-country-market-in-passing-pitch’ – but the principle is the same. I found your blog through the A to Z Challenge sign-up page. Always glad to have another writer on the roster! Have you participated before? And there is a ‘theme reveal’ link-up if you are interested.

Hi LuAnn – glad you stopped by.
Yes, this is my third year of the A to Z Challenge, and the second year with a theme – last year it was spices, this year I am writing about Tea Leaf Readings (Tasseomancy), because I am also writing a book about the subject (actually two books on tea currently). I will absolutely join in the theme reveal link up – thanks for pointing it out. Blessings!
P.S. I wonder what number I am, and how many have signed up – April will be a lot of fun!
