How to Write an Elevator Speech

Elevator Speech Image

By Copywriter Dena Molen

An Elevator Speech is a very short, direct message about the “why” surrounding you and your product. It communicates in a concise manner the benefits (not features) of your product and WHY YOU believe in it. It may help to think of it as a “commercial.” The “Elevator” term comes into play because the pitch usually lasts no more 30 seconds — the time it would take you to ride from the top to bottom of a building in an elevator.

To develop your own Elevator Speech, focus on these elements:

  • Define Your Goal: Do you want to tell others about a specific product that you’ve had success with? Do you want to share the opportunity available with Reliv? Or do you simply want someone to visit your personal website?
  • Offer A Solution: Concentrate on solving a problem. How can you help someone?
    • ProductsImprove health, increase energy, promote wellness and exercise
    • Opportunity: Work from home, supplement income, financial freedom
  • Answer the “Why”: 
    • Why do you want to share the benefits of a specific product? Because you want others to experience the health boost that you felt after taking the product for just one month?
    • Why do you want others to know about Reliv? Because it’s afforded you the ability to stay home with your kids, at the same time, make a substantial financial contribution to your household?
    • Why do you want someone to check out your website? Because you believe the Fit3 program can change his/her life?

Now it’s time to put it all together. Here’s an example:

You’re at your child’s parent teacher conference, and you’re sitting next to Stephanie, another parent from your child’s classroom. After chatting about mutual parenting concerns, she asks you if you’re a stay at home mom or if you work outside the home.

“I do both. Luckily, I found a business opportunity that pays me generously for simply connecting others to health and wellness products. As a mother, I’m very particular about product ingredients, but this company — Reliv — has been a leader in the nutrition industry for 30 years, and they produce only the safest, purest, most effective products. Best of all, I get to go on all the field trips with my kids while they’re still young.”

See how this answer addressed both the business opportunity and product quality that Reliv offers? In this scenario, the “WHY” is the fact that the Reliv lifestyle supports a flexible work schedule…and that’s important to parents with young children!

So…what’s your “WHY” for believing in Reliv? If you need some ideas to help put it into words, check out these pages on our website (About Us, Core Values, Nutrition You Can Trust). It should help you create your own elevator speech to use the next time someone asks that broad question: “What do you do?”

What it Really Means to be an Entrepreneur

Entrepreneurship (004)

Happy National Entrepreneur Day! Today is the day to celebrate each and every individual that has chosen to work for themselves and take the initiative to start their own business. What’s unique about Reliv is that everyone is an entrepreneur. Every Reliv Distributor has chosen to take control of their wealth and health like the true entrepreneurs that they are.

What Makes an Entrepreneur?

According to Entrepreneur Media, writer Steve Tobak writes that the equation for successful entrepreneurship is:

Entrepreneur + Capital = Products + Customers = Business

If math is not your strong suit, let’s turn this equation into words that are easier to comprehend. Reliv Executive Vice President of Sales Tom Pinnock is an excellent example of this Entrepreneur Equation.

When Tom started out he said, “Most of my adult life, I had dreamed of working out of my home, being my own boss and watching my children grow up. Now, right in front of me, were people doing just that. What’s more, they weren’t superhuman oozing with sales skills, but rather common folks like Karen and me. That’s what I saw, ordinary people, banding together, helping one another to achieve their dreams.”

Tom took the initiative by seeing the need for betterment of America’s health and filled that need by joining Reliv. He used his passion to take control of his health and the health of all of those who he encountered by sharing the Reliv lifestyle. He himself was an entrepreneur, invested in a Reliv kit, found customers and created a business for himself and his family.

“For the price of a kit, and armed with desire and solid work ethic, you can create a distribution network, one that can provide a residual income for you and your family for the rest of your life,” says Tom.

What’s special about Reliv is that you can see and feel your success as an entrepreneur. You can truly feel good at the end of the day because you are choosing a healthy lifestyle for yourself and those around you! Today we challenge you to reflect on why you started with Reliv or why you’re thinking of joining us, celebrate your success and share it with the world. Stay motivated and continue to expand your Reliv business like the great entrepreneur that you are!

Cutting Back on Sugar—How Can We Do It?

SugaryFoods_1110x457

By Fit3 Head Coach Tina Van Horn

Lately my sweet tooth has gotten a little out of control, mostly because I cannot resist cereal.  From bran flakes to everyone’s favorite box of colorful marshmallows, cereal is my weakness. As long as I don’t get started on it, I am good. But, once I grab a handful, there is a 99.9% chance that it’s going to lead to what probably totals three servings or more. Once the craving is triggered, I am in trouble.

Not only do I regret my choices 30 minutes later, but I feel lousy too. The blood sugar/insulin spiral makes me really grumpy and fatigued. Hello, sugar coma!

No Sweets Week

I have personally declared this a “No Sweets Week.” I’ve managed so far, even said no to a chocolate candy from Tom, but the next few months are very sugar-oriented! I challenge YOU to join me and try to really cut back on your sugar intake this week. Luckily, a Reliv shake can help! 

Strategy

  • Avoid your trigger foods (For me, those are cereal, ice cream and cookies). You know what your triggers are.
  • Establish an immediate consequence. I only allow myself ice cream if I do 25 burpees afterward.
  • Drink more water.
  • Drink a Reliv shake to curb your craving.

It may sound hard, because it is hard. Sugar is addictive and comes as such a strong craving, but here at Reliv we are in this together and we can beat those cravings as a team!

Today, if some sweetened calorie bomb is calling your name, don’t forget the above strategies to keep you on track!
