Providing a succinct and memorable takeaway that sums up your value proposition will help clients to form a distinct image in their mind after your legal pitch.
It also enables prospective clients to understand and talk about what you offer and why you are different from your competitors.
You might just have one takeaway for your law firm. Or you may have a takeaway that is relevant to a particular pitch. What is important is that you make it easy for the client to talk about you in the way you want to be spoken about.
Some of the best examples of takeaways come from Hollywood. When directors and producers pitch new film ideas to studio executives, they often condense complex plots into a handful of words. Chosen well, these can be evocative enough to bring to mind a clear concept, which is easily shared and understood.
Can you recognise which blockbuster films the below takeaways refer to?:
1. Dinosaurs in a safari park
2. Romeo and Juliet on a ship
3. Jaws, set in space
Answers are at the bottom of this blog post.
The takeaway for your legal pitch probably won’t be as dramatic as these. But it should still be as clear and effective in creating a powerful and concrete impression of your firm.
