What is Your Blog’s Elevator Pitch?

Des from Business and Blogging was asked a couple of weeks ago to describe his blog in 10 words or less. His description was:

“How blogs work, or don’t, to support business goals.”

I guess mine would be my catch cry – ‘helping bloggers earn money’.

I think it’s a good exercise to do, particularly at this time of year when everyone is so focussed upon refocusing for the year ahead. In a sense this is the elevator pitch for your blog and can be useful both in getting the purpose of your blog clear in your own mind but also in promoting it and sharing it’s vision with others.

How would you describe yours in 10 words or less?

    goofy, opinionated, music critique, and all things Roberta.

    Oh yeah, Happy New Year! :)

  3. Kian Ann says:

    This is interesting (and tough one) to think about!

    “Marketing and optimization strategies to help blogs succeed”

    Well at least that’s my ideal, and I’ve realised (thanks to this post!) that I’ve strayed a lot from this pitch since I started 4 months ago.

    Thanks Darren, and Happy New Year!

  8. Duane Brown says:

    Mines would be; “Tracking Interactive Entertainment from the PR Perspective”. Covering PR and videogames, few things are better together.

  9. My elevator pitch for The Breast Blog (http://breastblog.blogspot.com) is, “Information to empower today’s breast cancer survivors.”

    My elevator pitch for A Writer’s Blog is … a documentary of sorts on my growing freelance writing career. Clearly less tangible; I need to work on this one!

    Thanks for the fodder.

  27. Trevor Cook says:

    The trouble with most of these pitches is that they describe the content but they don’t really say why you are providing the content so as a pitch to a business type stakeholder they don’t really work. Mine would be ‘to promote my consultancy business especially including in social media using a blog because its cheaper and more powerful than a traditional website ‘

    Sounds like a blog that should be popular, but not make any money, doesn’t it?

  32. Ashish Mohta says:

    Mine is “Making technology simple for even a layman through analysis and blog voice”

  33. Hello, a really interesting experience to visit your website. For sure i will come back soon. greets to all !

    Adding enrichment and enjoyment to daily life and livelihood.

  36. 10 words or less: “helping people get a front-row seat in life!” Can you tell from that I am a motivational speaker? Or, will my blog homepage reflect that so I don’t need it in my 10 words? Thanks!
