Every member of theBrokerList is given a text box that contains 4,096 characters. Many of those text boxes say “Coming Soon” but nothing is filled in. It is really like being given a FREE billboard to promote your company on a super highway and leaving it blank. Why not fashion your “My Pitch” box to your advantage.
The vision of “My Pitch” was to really make a pitch about what is vital or most important, like a “pitch” should be. When you go into the Control Panel of your profile, the icon below is a powerful online and fully searchable box. What content you add to that text box can help you to be found online.
Examples of how to set up an optimized my pitch text box. This is merely an example. Many of you have great pitches already, but many say “Coming Soon” or are blank. This post is for those who cannot find the right words or format for their individual or Company background information.
