How to sell anything in 15 seconds

Written by Super User

I found this awesome article with video on how to pitch in 15 seconds. Great advice for adding your pitches to this site in your Gallery!

Step One. Create a Twitter-friendly headline.
The headline is the one single overarching message that you want your customers to know about the product. Ask yourself, "What is the single most important thing I want my listener to know about my [product, service, brand, idea]." Draw a circle at the top of the message and insert the headline. Make sure your headline fits in a Twitter post – no more than 140 characters. If you cannot explain your product or idea in 140 characters or less, go back to the drawing board.

How to Sell at Trade Shows

Written by Super User

So, you have prototypes or a small inventory and think you are ready to hit the shows and get the orders rolling in? Here are 5 tips to help you prepare for the show and start selling your invention:

Research the right shows for your budget. It is important to watch your budget when launching a product, after all you don't want to run out of money before you start. Research the shows the buyers go to who you want to be in front of. I use to find shows in a category. There is usually 1 or 2 big shows per category. You can go online to distributor sites to find a list of the shows they will be exhibiting at as a shortcut also. Just pick a company that sells similar items in to the stores you want to sell to.
