Los Angeles, CA, March 17, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The hit ABC TV show, “Shark Tank,” has helped many entrepreneurs gain recognition for their business and make millions with the expertise of the Sharks. However, many unprepared and nervous entrepreneurs who appear on the show miss this business-changing opportunity. For people who are applying to be on the show or who want to prepare for investor meetings and other important business presentations, PR Expert, Entrepreneur, and Speaker Lisa Elia will host the free “Get Ready for Shark Tank Teleseminar” with Financial Expert Dean Erickson, on March 20.
Elia, who has been a publicist and business owner for over 20 years, has prepared her clients for meetings with investors, written business plans for clients to present to secure funding, and presentations to secure product distribution and other deals. She has also prepared hundreds of clients for national TV interviews, teaching them techniques to control their nerves and stay focused, and developing answers to the tough and simple questions they may be asked. “I want to help people to feel confident prepared and able to provide the specific information needed so that they can seize every great opportunity,” says the expert media trainer. Elia has shared her publicity expertise, business advice and insights with media outlets that include Inc., Fox News, Us Weekly, Entertainment Tonight, E! Entertainment, and many others.
Elia provides these tips for anyone seeking investors, whether from the Sharks or others, and will go into more detail on the teleseminar:
1. “Be able to describe your business model clearly and succinctly.
2. Practice your answers to the obvious questions.
3. Think about “what’s in it for them” (WIIFT) and what you’re asking from them in terms of their time and resources.
4. Consider what you will do if one of the Sharks makes you an offer that differs from your own.”
Teleseminar guest Erickson, founder and CEO of the investment advisory firm Bionic Capital, worked on Wall Street for seven years after earning his bachelor’s degree in mathematical economics from Brown University. He earned his Chartered Financial Analyst designation in 1987 and has been in the world of investments for decades. On this teleseminar, Erickson will lend his expertise regarding the financial aspects of preparing for “Shark Tank,” or almost any business presentation.
On the upcoming “Get Ready for Shark Tank Teleseminar,” Elia and Erickson will share the three qualities you must display to investors and five numbers you need to know before you present to investors and sponsors so you can close the deal. They will also provide information on how to remain calm in any nerve-wracking situation including being on camera, handle challenging questions from investors, and weigh the pros and cons of a deal with a Shark or investor.
This 45-minute complimentary teleseminar will take place on March 20 at 5 p.m. Pacific/8 p.m. Eastern, via phone and Ustream.
