Nothing can get you noticed better than a good self introduction.
Remember "K.I.S.S.S." = Keep it short, simple, smile.
Start with an "attention getter." Give people a reason to remember you. The sooner, the better. (We invented this term back in 1984. For true!)
Follow with "data." Something factual, to establish you as an expert within your particular industry.
Follow with "positioning." Your name, your title and your company name and what is unique about your product/service.
Follow with the "close." A slogan and the call to action.
Here's an actual example of an award winning 30 second self-introduction intromercial: To listen, turn on your speakers and click the play button.
"Starting a business is easy. Having it grow and
prosper, ahhhh, not so easy." (attention getter)
"How do I know these things? I'm C. Dean Kring, Director of Research, Services Cooperative Association, sponsor to Houston's first and Texas' oldest small business incubator. (positioning)
"See me after the meeting and I'll tell you how business incubators reverse the statistic of business failures and accelerate business growth. We grow companies and build careers. May we assist with yours?" (close)
More tips for your intro-mercial:
See if you can position yourself on the outer boundary of the room, preferably a corner, should one be available, so you can see the entire room, with no one at your back.
Avoid humor unless you are very, very, very good at it.
As you start your introduction, establish eye contact with someone close to you. As you continue, make eye contact with those progressively further away. The perfect ending is to be finishing your close and looking at the last person.
When you must follow someone who just gave a knockout introduction pause for just a moment and allow the room to settle, then start your introduction with: "Now that I have your attention." Do not start with: "That's a hard act to follow."
