If you did a perfect elevator speech, painting the right images in the other’s mind, they want to know more about you/see you again/keep in touch with you.
Back then, you would give a business card. To date?
What you need is to continue your conversation in the future.
When? It doesn’t matter if soon or not. Do have a way to get your contact.
Have your smartphone on hand.
Search online examples of elevator speech.
Stop your searches, relax, connect with your inner self and ask yourself: who I am and what do I care for? How do I want people see me?
Write It Down
You need to write it down to hone it and to memorize it. It is essential you read it aloud many times. Nothing helps you in revising It more than reading it aloud.
When you have finished creating your elevator speech, submit it to somebody you trust to review.
Tweak it as necessary, and then practice it in front of a mirror. Practice it till you act it out like it is an usual conversation.
