A guest speaker at the training college a few weeks ago talked about developing an ‘Elevator Pitch’ as an evangelism tool. The idea to figure out, perhaps, how to succinctly explain the basics of the gospel in the time it would take to get from the ground floor to the floor of choice (the amount of time certainly depends on the quality of the elevator – at training college, maybe 2 mins from G->10?)
So, I’ve been thinking a little about that lately. What would you say if you only had 30 seconds? (I’m going to have to think about this one a little longer..)
THEN, I signed up for a “Build a Better Blog Challenge”, and the #1 task is to ‘Write an Elevator Pitch for Your Blog’. Fancy that! It seems that business and self improvement type courses have been teaching students to develop an elevator pitch for their business or themselves, and so an extension of that is to use it to improve your blogging.
The question that I have to ask I suppose is; Why do I do this? What is it about?
Maybe it’s this; (eek! I still don’t know..)
To uniquely and passionately share the things I’ve experienced, the thoughts I’d had and the things I’ve seen, so that readers will be spurred on in value, faith and life.
