This will not only help you identify any areas that they might not be doing well in and where you can slot yourself in and give them the best social media of their life!

What are some things you can look out for when working on your pitch?
What products and services does the potential client sell?
Where are they located in the world?
Who are their competitors?
How much knowledge does the team have of social media?
What is their overall budget?
Do they have social media accounts already?
When you start doing the initial research on the company, think of those questions above when diving deeeeeep. It’ll help you break down exactly how you can help them and is a great starting point when you start building out and personalizing your social media pitch.
2. Customize your pitch deck to the client 🎨
Sweet! Now you’ve done your research and know everything there is to know about your potential client! It’s time to start breaking down everything you learned to create the most kickass social media pitch deck for them.
The more personalized and customized the pitch deck, the better your chances are at capturing the attention of your potential client.
So think of your customer every step of the way when creating this deck. Do they have a small budget? You’re not going to suggest expensive ads. Focus on their specific pain points as a company—do they have no social media presence at all? Talk about how you’re going to build up their profile online giving very specific examples and showcasing how this will help them in the long run.
By making the pitch deck hyper-personalized, it’ll show the brand, business, or client that you’re there to help them out in the best and most efficient way you can.
3. Introduce yourself (and your team!) 👋
You finally have the client’s attention, it’s time to introduce yourself (and your team—if you have one!). Who are you? What work have you done in the past? Why are YOU the best person for the job?
Go into detail on people, brands, and clients you’ve worked with in the past. How have you helped them grow? Give the stats and figures so you can do quick highlights on how you’re kicking butt in the social media game.
4. Define the problem and your solution 😬
Perfect. The client knows who you are, why you’re good enough for the job, and what you’re going to do for them so now it’s time to show the client want they’ll gain from hiring you specifically!
There’s a reason they’re looking for your services. There’s a specific problem they have, so how can you help them? What’s the issue they have? Define the unique problem they have and make sure your pitch is personalized to their specific needs and how your services will help them.
For example, say they don’t have any Reels or TikToks and they are in need of video content that you’re an expert on. Tell them exactly how these videos will help them with their social media. How your Reels and TikToks will boost their accounts. How you will go about helping them with these videos.
Being able to give a detailed strategy on how you can help them can help take your social media pitch deck to the next level!
5. Explain how you work 📝
Explain how you work with your clients. This is helpful for your potential client to know exactly what to expect from you.
Things you should outline when you put together this portion of your pitch deck:
The services you provide and deliver. Give your potential client an exact list of things you will provide to them. Communicate everything clearly so they know all of the ins and outs of what to expect.
How you’ll measure your results. Explain to the client how you’re going to measure their metrics. Your client will want to know if you’re worth your services to showing off how well their metrics have done month-per-month is important!
How you’ll check in. Explain how you’re going to get assets to your clients, how often you’re going to check in with them. Will you be doing weekly meetings? Will you be giving a monthly report? Add all that information!

This provides social proof and better credibility for you and your company.

Last but not least, give a summary at the end and leave time for questions for your potential new client!
