Five Steps to Creating an Effective Book Elevator Pitch



While you may believe the elevator pitches are reserved for high-tech companies, job seekers, and Hollywood screenwriters, the ability to describe your work concisely in a short period is a talent that every writer must acquire.


The elevator pitch is an effective marketing technique that may entice readers, connect with prospective marketing partners, and get a short audience with an agent or editor. If you have written an effective elevator pitch, you will find it much simpler to respond to the question, "So what is your book about?"


Here are five straightforward techniques to help you create an unforgettable elevator pitch for your book:


1. What is the subject of your book?



Write a summary of your book in no more than 50 words. Make no attempt to be creative or funny; put out the facts or the essentials.


If it is memoir or fiction, attempt to convey the storyline, what occurs, and the tale's essence. Suppose you are writing nonfiction, attempt to convey what the reader will learn and your central message.


2. What is the setting?


Readers want an understanding of the world or philosophical mentality in which they will be immersed. They are going to consume a lot of time with you in your book, so prepare them.


If it is fiction or memoir, provide information about the story's world- the time, period, the universe, or the setting. Even if you began your memoir in first-person, convert it to a third-person point of view now. While writing about oneself in this manner may seem uncomfortable, it is standard practice for a memoir. While there may be instances when you want to write from the first-person point of view (e.g., while speaking to someone in person), a third-person point of view is the norm.


If you are writing nonfiction, consider the cultural and philosophical background of the topic or problem you are assisting your reader in resolving. Consider framing your subject.


3. What is the reason for your reader's concern?


Readers read to get exact information. They are not drawn to the books on which they spend their time at random: they know what they desire. They want education or entertainment, inspiration or challenge. When describing your book, you want to make it crystal clear why readers should care.


If it is fiction or memoir, include a paragraph or two describing how they may feel after reading it or its effect on them. Consider comparing previous works in the genre or presenting your book as a mash-up of two existing pieces.


If your book is nonfiction, describe what they will learn from it. What is the takeaway message? What is the purpose?


4. Keep it brief and concise.


Add texture, details, and rhythm to your description to bring it to life. Allow your distinctive voice to come through so that readers can get a feel of your personality, and allow your elevator speech to "breathe" to get a true sense of what you are providing. Read your description aloud to get a sense of how it sounds, and then edit until it is flawless.


5. Include Pertinent Honors



Are you a published author? Are you a well-known expert in your field? Was your most recent publication a New York Times bestseller? Is this book the continuation of a series? Have you received a killer blurb from a celebrity? Include this kind of recognition.


If you do not have something tremendous or relevant, do not add anything- and do not be concerned. The book itself is an essential item to readers.
