A great pitch needs to be engaging and easy to understand. It also needs to be succinct, as there’s nothing more off-putting than a presentation that goes on too long. Here are five tips to help you create a pitch that will make a lasting impression:

1. Remember to add a visual element to your pitch for the most impact

The best way to ensure your pitch goes well is by being prepared both physically and mentally beforehand — whether it’s an informal chat or a formal presentation. No matter how persuasively you speak or how captivating you are, audiences always need something to look at since it will help them visualize what you are talking about.

Tips: Use Slidego, Canva, or start your presentation from scratch to improve your pitch deck. You can use tables, charts, and graphs to enhance financial information and predictions.

2. Keep it short and clear, nobody wants to sit through a novel of slides

If a presentation is excessively long, the audience may find it boring and time-consuming. As you give a lot of information without understanding the key, certain important elements could be overlooked.

Tips: Try to sum up your pitch deck in 15-20 slides long. You need to be straightforward and concise when delivering your presentation. Bullet points in the slide will help you to avoid making them too wordy.

3. Back up your problems and solutions with data and evidence

A problem needs to exist so that your business can be the solution. However, depending on your market or product, it could be difficult for people to understand the issue you are trying to address. It’s important that you can clearly communicate this problem in a way that resonates with people in your target audience. Be clear about who you’re talking to and why they should care about what you have to offer. Tailor your pitch accordingly depending on who is listening — whether it’s investors or potential clients.

Tips: Back up your claims with current data and evidence to bolster your value proposition and establish market credibility.

4. Be crystal clear on what your business’s USP is

With the explosion of internet-based businesses, the market has become increasingly saturated. It’s essential to clearly identify and highlight the unique features and benefits of your product or service in order to differentiate yourself from the competition

Tips: Find a real gap in the market that can be capitalised upon so that you can make your product or service outstanding in the market 

5. Spell out how the funds will be used clearly

Investors pay attention to solid numbers and financial projections regarding a business pitch. You need to be transparent and specific about pre-money valuation and other financial metrics of your business to gain their trust and interest

Tips: Calculate base on your financial plan or use multiple approach – a valuation theory to help you evaluate your business and better understand the financial metrics required to run

Now that you know the secrets to crafting a pitch that will knock the socks off of any investor, it’s time to put your newfound knowledge to the test. Remember, a great pitch isn’t just about the words you say, it’s about knowing your company inside and out, and being able to communicate that knowledge with confidence. So go forth and pitch! And may the funding odds be ever in your favor.
