Dying to learn how to pitch?

with No Comments

Dying to learn how to pitch? Fear not, here are two ways I can help:

1. Consider using these 5 universal tips that will help anyone who is pitching anything!

• Fear is all in the mind: what you affirm repeatedly will have a great effect on the story your body tells before you ever speak a word and how you deliver your pitch. You should feel confident and bold knowing that you are presenting an opportunity to whoever you are pitching. Declare this 100x: I courageously sell my _____________!

• Engage: It’s important to use hand gestures when it comes to engaging and capturing attention. So, lean in, and as you start telling your pitch, use your hands to draw your listeners in.

• Research: The best pitchers are the best stalkers...I mean, researchers. One can learn anything on the Internet. So learn all you can about the person you are pitching and use what you learn within your pitch.

• Networking: Building relationships are key. Start building long before you pitch if you can. Like a status, comment on a tweet, give helpful advice that you know they may need. Networking is about giving not getting. (Hint: you will know the need by the research you do.

• Be mission minded: Find where your missions are conjoined with the person you are pitching.

2.COME TO THE BOOK RELEASE, WORKSHOP, INDUSTRY PANEL AND NETWORKING EVENT! Learn more specific tips on how to pitch to networks, production companies, investors and talent, and how to pitch yourself to major media outlets! CHICAGO IS NEXT, THEN LA!!!

My Takeaways From The Practice Your Pitch Event [Video]

with No Comments

It's soooo important to practice your pitch!

I was one of the panelist at BRIC's Practice Your Pitch event and saw and gave feedback to around 15 pitches. I've comprised my takeaways from the event. They cover the most common issues I witnessed with answers to resolving the problems. I also discussed the difference between being good and great at pitching, and how this pitch fest inspired me!

The day after, I received this message 👇🏽 below from one of the "great" pitchers... and now, I see why her pitch was one of the great ones!

I'm so glad to know that my #100Pitches book is helping Content Creators! Yay!!!

Let’s Go #100 Times Harder!

with No Comments

So, the year is rounding out and I realize that there is so much to do to dominate this year as I planned to in January.

"I have to go harder!" As I look over the content I've been putting out on social media and the things I've been doing to progress my career, I ask myself if I've exhausted the biggest resource I have; my energy, and the answer is admittedly "NO" When I think on it, I'm only using about 50% (maybe less) of my energy.

It is time for a change!

I'm of the mindset now that I have to go after my goals #100 times harder in order to see the type of success I really want to see.

I know my dreams won't come to fruition easy. That's why I'm changing my mindset about the actions I take to reach my goals over these final 3 months of the year.

Do you feel the same way?

If so, it's imperative that you go all out to make your dreams come to fruition. In doing this, here are 4 things you can do to go harder and finish out the year strong!

  1. Write out your ultimate goals.
  2. Now go #100 times bigger. What would those goals look like now if you did this?Now, you are thinking big!
  3. Ask yourself, "What would I have to do to achieve this goal?"
  4. Do it!

Are you consumed with your goals?

So, here is how I plan to dominate these last 3 months using my energy alone...

I've decided to put out 1,000 pieces of content on all social media outlets!! That's roughly 333 posts monthly. Which is approximately 11 bits of content a day. But who's counting? Oh Lordy!

So, what's your plan? How will you use your energy?


Have you read #100Pitches: Mistakes I've Made So You Don't Have To, yet?

You want to dominate the room when you pitch? Here are some options: COACH with me and/or BUY the book. #100Pitches

Storytelling: The Right Stories Told the Right Way

with No Comments

Squeaky Then, Squeaky Now:

Let me tell you my story...

What skill do most pitchers have that makes them stand out from the pack?

Well, let me tell you a story about two people I know, Squeaky then and Squeaky now.

They’re both creative content creators. They’re both unrepresented by an agent. They both are pretty known in the industry, and have helped many projects see the light of day.

But there’s a big difference between them.

Squeaky now has been able to penetrate the wall put up between her, the networks and production companies, while Squeaky then struggled.

They both pitched their content—but Squeaky now, not Squeaky then, gets stopped in the middle of a pitch to be told, "Your pitch is the best I've heard all week!"

They both have developed relationships—but here again, Squeaky now, not Squeaky then, is a "called on" producer/content creator who is invited in the room and has established trust as a content creator who always brings great, well developed content.

What’s the difference?

Squeaky then focused on creating really good projects. Squeaky now does that as well, but squeaky now has learned the key to building relationships and also focuses on making development execs WANT to know more about her content, by telling them compelling stories and aligning the perfect information within her stories when pitching.

Learning how to developed materials and deliver pitches with vivid, emotionally-engaging stories is the “secret sauce” for winning pitches.

When I first started looking to pitch, it was hit or miss. I'd send out hundreds of emails just to get almost as many silent "Nos" in return.

Then I went on a pitching journey to learn to become a better pitcher in every way possible: my development process, my storytelling, my pitching materials, and my relationship building all strengthened tremendously. What was one major thing I learned to do with all the above?

You guessed it… storytelling.

Once I learned to pitch the right stories in the right way, using the right points, and following up with the right materials, I was able to get in the room and build relationships with more development execs.

Being able to tell your story and craft great materials in the best possible way will transform your pitching and your life.

5 Ways To Maximize Your Time at Conferences and Film Festivals!

5 Ways To Maximize Your Time at Conferences and Film Festivals!

Hey Content Creators,

I've come up with 5 ways to maximize your time at conferences and film festivals!

You may know this about me already but if you don't, my mission in life is to inspire, motivate, and educate women and minorities so they could show up in their best way! As I prepare to moderate a media panel in Miami I've come up with a list that I believe can truly activate my future success and yours too at any event, especially film festivals. I've shared the 5 ways below.


1. Research who you want and need to collaborate with. Don't try to meet everyone, you want to meet THE one.

2. Prepare your agenda before hand. Your agenda should be based on what's most important to you and what your number one goal

3. Prepare a list of questions. Know how people on your list can activate or grow you and your career. Ask questions that best utilizes the person's skills set.

4. Listen. This really starts before you attend the conference during your research. Prepare yourself to fill a need of the person you want to collaborate with. In networking, giving is better than getting.

5. Prepare a 30 second elevator pitch!!! Don't get there and be stumbling over what you do and who you are! Be able to tell people who you are, what you do, what makes you unique or a standout, and why you do what you do.

BONUS. I learned this tip from Senior Vice President of Sales, MichelleThornton (BET-Her). Reach out before hand and connect with the people you want to meet so that they can be expecting you. DOPE TIP, thanks Michelle!

I hope this list can activate you closer to success before you attend your next event!

CHICAGO YOU GOT NEXT!!!

REGISTER

I can hardly wait to come home! I hope to see you at the #100Pitches: Book Release Event in Chicago.

I've been thinking of doing something special in my hometown. I'm not sure what though. Although Chicago is an amazing city and some great shows are being shot there, I feel there needs to be more coming out of it and so many creators born there wouldn't have to leave to go to other larger markets to achieve success.

What can I do?!?! Do you know?

I do know education is my first step. I want to teach all I know about the industry and breaking down the walls so that more of us can get through the doors! I've recently reached out to other amazing people in the industry to help come up with ideas and to make this book tour stop one of the best I've done so far!

Chicago, please show up to get this information and meet the people who could green light your success!

Maybe I'll do some ticket and book giveaways and raffles too. This way, there will be no excuse!

Leave suggestions on how I can get every content creator in Chicago in the room, please!

EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION NOW OPEN FOR LIMITED TIME ONLY

Thanks much and see you there!

#100Pitches: Book Tour: Atlanta [PICTURES]

with No Comments

The #100Pitches: Book Tour Atlanta was A M A Z I N G!!!

To the decision makers and green-lighters @Aspire TV Network, Overstreet Productions and Post, and Swirl Films.

Atlanta welcomed the #100Pitches Book Tour movement - and a room full of hungry content creators and reminded me how sweet Georgia really is!

I want to personally thank all of my expert executives (Tina Thompson -Aspire TV, Wayne Overstreet - Overstreet Productions & Post, Eric Tomosunas & Keith Neal - Swirl Films), for generously giving your time, knowledge, and support to the women and minorities who attended the book release, workshop, industry panel and networking event. I can without a shadow of a doubt tell you that because of you, the content creators walked away more knowledgeable, inspired, and motivated to create, and sell their projects courageously!

I was in tears (once again), when I personally witnessed Eric Tomosunas of Swirl Films, willingly offer to open a door for a content creator who boldly pitched herself and her future dreams of being in the industry. It's my dream come true and my mission closer to being satisfied! You confirmed that what I teach to others daily is on point and much a needed message to help see more diverse stories on the big and little screens!

Last, I want to thank my sponsors Get TV Ready and Wework Colony Square. I greatly appreciate you!

Thanks so much for your support, I am truly grateful to you!

 

Creatively,

 

Squeaky Moore
