Take a moment to understand the importance of marketing by Deanna Klingel, a fine example of one of our own, and how she uses it to her advantage.

“I’ve learned from experience that the elevator speech matters. It’s one of the most important parts of writing that I learned at conferences. My best pitch I’ve given hundreds of times.
