  22. 1. FOCUS - Who is your target audience? - What do they care about? - Where will you tell your story?
  23. Before you write your pitch, REALLY THINK about who your audience is. Do that and you’ll already be a better storyteller.
  24. 2. CHOOSE Pick only 3 things that make your product intriguing to that audience.
  25. If your audience can remember 3 intriguing things about you, they can tell other people. They can also make decisions more easily.
  26. Being selective about what to include in your pitch respects your audience. Busy people don’t like unfocused, rambling stories.
  27. 3. STRUCTURE Lead with what’s most captivating to your target audience. Then end with it, too.
  28. Command your audience’s attention by GETTING RIGHT TO IT. Busy people want the specifics, clearly stated, immediately.
