Here is Useful Websites #15:

(Well, Half-the-way thorugh with this post for my 30-day challenge!)

Do you remember what was the clue or hint I had given for this site? Let me see if you can still get it. The clue was: It has '15' as a part of the website and has something to do with sound!

What could it be that can help us, has '15' in the website address and has some to do with sound?

Here is the answer: Market yourself in 15 Seconds

So what do they do? As name suggests...

Have you ever come across the 'big' question when introduced to someone - Hey, I am Mike and I work with XYZ, what do you do?

This is the best opportunity to sell your services - and perhaps, it could be worth thousands of dollars - if you respond to that question right. (Isn't that the difference between good and great? These 15 seconds...)

This is from their home page:

  What the 15SecondPitch™ Is  

  • A tool to help you discover who you are and what you really want
  • A way to focus your thinking on what is most important
  • A great introduction and conversation starter
  • A way to organize the thinking process for any new venture
  • An effective multi-channel personal marketing tool to communicate consistently via email, on the telephone, in person, or on your business cards.

  What the 15SecondPitch™ is Not  

  • A scripted, cheesy, tone-deaf sales pitch
  • A substitute for effective interpersonal interaction
  • A grocery list of all the things you do or know
  • A so-called elevator pitch for investors (although it makes a great introduction for one)

15SecondPitch™ n. An introduction that is concise, compelling and conversational. No elevator required!

I know, there is not much to describe in detail for this website - as compared to my previous postings, but well, it's worth 5 minutes of your time and create a 15-second pitch, isn't it?

If you are not sure what to do about your own pitch, you can preview about 20,000+ sample pitches and get some idea about what should be your pitch.

(And just a note from me - you do not limit your pitch to 15 seconds only!)

I am sure you'll try this out - at least once and see if it is helpful to you or not.

Your comments/suggestions are welcome.


I have joined the blog-a-day blogathon for next 30 days. This is day 15 of the 30-day-challenge. Woohoo...half-the-way through!

In these 30 days, what better could it be to share something either I learned from some of the ActiveRainers or some other resource online and share it with the group?

At times, I may not know where and how I learnt about the websites and may not be able to give due credit to someone who informed me about that, but I still want to Thank all of them who contributed to my knowledge which I plan to share.

I am trying to use different field each day - and have now more than 30 such websites. Will I continue after 30 days? Let's see - first things first- I want to completed this 30-day challenge. I am trying to avoid some of the more familiar websites and focusing on some that may not be known to most of you - and still, yes, useful. 

You can create a free account on many of these websites and some of them may have some minimal subscription fees. I am sure, these websites will help you in your business - one way or another.

(Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with any of these websites not do I derive any income from any of these sites - except that I do subscribe to some of these services. Please use  them at your own risk - and let me tell you, I have used them and did not find it 'risky'.)


Look out for the next in series - Useful Websites #16 - and it will be....

Thanks, Praful - was not aware of this website but very useful!  Every time you meet someone is an opportunity to do business, and a quick business pitch is exactly what everyone needs.  Keep strong on the 30-for-30, halfway there!

I gave the site a try-out. I wasn't that impressed and definitely felt the service didn't warrant the cost. It was an interesting exercise, nonetheless.
