Hey guys in case you missed it catch up on Episode 73 Jeff Herrmann. A fascinating talk about content marketing. Our guest this episode is known as The Pitch Whisperer. John helps tech founders develop an irresistible pitch to get the funding they need — fast.
If you’ve ever wanted to know how to pitch a venture capitalist grab a pin and pad! John is also the host of the very popular The Successful Pitch podcast where investors share their criteria on which start-ups they fund and start-ups share how they got funded.
One of the things that resonated with me is something John said early in our discussion he stated that a lot of founders make a mistake when they pitch to investors. They are thinking, if I can show you how great that idea is, you’ll give me money when in fact, you have to show them how great you are first. Investors invest in the jockey not the horse.
Here are the highlights of my conversation with John:
In this part of the show notes I pull out the some of the knowledge from the interview into small bites you can jot down or throw in Evernote. What I do for podcast and important notes is copy them over to Evernote then add them to my journal for what applies to my business. It’s been pretty effective for me.
The following section is to highlight and talk about products I use and would personally recommend. Understand that with some of these recommendations I may be paid an affiliate commision if you choose to purchase or sign-up with the service. This will not cost you any additional money but does help keep the show going.
I used ScreenFlow for the SnapChat for Business video I posted back in January. It’s not a full training but just some quick tips on using Snapchat and it’s done with ScreenFlow. It’s here: http://vernonross.com/snapchat-for-business/
I personally use ScreenFlow on an almost daily basis and have been for a few years. It’s a much better solution than other more expensive programs out there and it’s quick to pick up and start using right out of the box. If you attended Podcast Midwest last year you know that Telestream among others sponsored a 4 license give away for my listeners and attendees of the podcast.
