Status Labs and Presenting a Pitch

A good part of promotion and maintaining a good image as well as improving one’s own reputation lies in the pitch that is presented. There are a few steps that one must take in order to make sure that his pitch is very successful in accomplishing what he intends. This takes a lot of work, time and even help in order to make sure that he has something that is going to be of great benefit to him. The following are a few tips that will help with the pitch.

The first thing that is important is to stay on topic. The topic that one is going to write a pitch on has to be researched in a complete and thorough manner. Status Labs experts know that this could involve getting in contact with a journalist. This journalist has to make sure that he sticks to the topic so that the pitch could be accepted and not result in any blocking or other consequences that a publicist could suffer horribly from/

The pitch has to be concise, especially when it comes to emails. If a pitch is too long, people are going to check out. People do not have a lot of time in this fast paced society, so it is important that the pitch gets the point across without any lengthy reading. Ideally, 6 sentences is the maximum that a pitch has. There is also the option for a press release included at the bottom with a call to action.

Knowledge of the contact that one is pitching to is very important. The pitch has to speak to the recipient personally. In other words, it has to relate to the recipient of the press release in some manner so that he will be more likely to respond to the message.

Other very important aspects of the pitch include making offers and being a good storyteller. If the pitch offers something very valuable and can tell a compelling story, then people will be more willing to pick up the pitch that is being offered. In order to make the story work, there must be five factors put into consideration. These factors are human interest, significance, proximity, timing, and prominence.

The Internet Moves towards IPv6 with Third Anniversary of World Launch Day

The internet is great. In fact, it’s so great that everyone wants everything imaginable connected to it. The only problem is that the original IPv4 technology that is currently being used to provide connectivity to billions of people has a limited number of IP addresses. There’s already a shortage that will continue to grow until IPv4 is phased out for good.

Thank goodness for IPv6. There are so many addresses available in IPv6 that it’s unlikely that we will run out any time soon. The world launch event for IPv6 brought together hardware manufacturers, internet service providers and more to show support for the next generation protocol. The world launch even just had its three year anniversary as IPv6 numbers on the internet continue to grow.

There are already five times more IPv6 internet users today than there were back in 2012 during the original IPv6 launch event. In just a few short years IPv6 will accommodate up to half of all internet traffic. A few more years and IPv6 will leave IPv4 in the dust to become the de facto standard online.

Keith Mann (hedgefundemployment.com) has learned that the world launch event is being used as a way to raise awareness for IPv6. The more people that know about it the faster it will be adopted among businesses and end users.
