#2 How to pitch & win business from big clients
If I mention the word ‘pitch’ to you, what kind of emotion does it evoke?
Scary? Stress? Heart beat increasing to 100mph!?
Well it doesn’t have to be that way. On this episode of the Mum to Millionaire podcast I am joined by a Mum of 2 from Thurrock who has turned her passion for baking into a business and breezes through the pitching process.
Martina Dennis, bakes at home yet supplies her tasty treats to 2 big shopping centers in the UK. Whilst still being able to spend quality time with her children – this is what Mum to Millionaire is all about!
IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN
- The step by step process to pitch to big clients
- Once you get clients, how do you keep them
- The importance of creating your own opportunities
KEY TAKE AWAY
Use your initiative, think outside the box and create your own opportunities
Martina saw that a new champagne bar was opening in her local shopping centre. She used her initiative, thought outside the box and emailed the company asking if they would like cupcakes to sell in the bar. From that one simple email, Martina now has repeat business from that company.
Just like how I managed to interview a Billionaire I watched a documentary on – I took the step to email him and a few weeks later I had a one hour skype call with him. You can watch that inspiring chat here
MARTINA’S BIGGEST CHALLENGE AND HOW SHE OVERCAME IT
Challenge: Time management and difficulties of working from home
Solution: Taught herself how to be displined every single day by working to schedules. A realistic schedule for work tasks and another schedule for family life
I really hope the pitching process is less scary now and as Martina said BE CONFIDENT in yourself and your business.
A huge thank you to Martina, so much great advice and because her tips were so good I thought I would put together a free download for you. Simply click the image below to get the STEP BY STEP pitching process
