Once you’ve finished your book, you’ll need to get ready to start publicizing it, which means you need to be able to summarize it quickly. This is also known as an elevator pitch, a powerful marketing tool that you can use when enticing readers in a very short space. But how do you summarize an entire book in just a few seconds?
This article will teach you 5 steps to help you get the perfect elevator pitch together. The first step is explaining what your book is about. Write down what it’s about in no more than 50 words. Next, you need to give a sense of the context, that way they know if it’s non-fiction or fiction.
The third step is figuring out a way to convey why the reader should care. When describing your book, you want to tell them very clearly why they should care about it. Fourth, you need to make it snappy. Once you have your description, polish it to a high shine by adding texture, details, and rhythm.
Finally, add relevant accolades. Are you an award-winning writer? A respected leader in your field? Did someone famous give you a shout out? When you’re wrapping up your pitch, add in this kind of accolade.
