 YOUR SALES TEAM WON’T USE IT.
You’ve provided your sales team with an informative and dynamic demo that’s locked and loaded with all the necessary tools to attain success for them and for you…yet they still won’t use it. Here are five basic-but-essential questions to contemplate and act upon immediately if this is the case in your organization:

•  Is the demo truly “sales-centric”?

• Is it easy to use?

• Is the content interesting and engaging?

• Is it succinct and to the point?

• Is there a call to action?

  YOUR LEADS STILL HAVE QUESTIONS AFTER SEEING THE DEMO…AND WON’T RETURN SALES CALLS.

With this double whammy it’s time to reassess the efficiency of the entire demo, soup to nuts. Head-scratching after seeing equals a demo that’s not stating the facts clearly or memorably, rendering its functionality a failure. Autodemo’s methodology is about the deep dive, doing your homework and coming up with every single question that may be asked prior to execution. Once these questions have been vetted and enhanced to address any potential inquiries, then it’s time to begin the demo build out. After that, if you still find your sales calls are not returned, read and repeat: outreach, engagement and follow-through… outreach, engagement and follow-through…

YOUR DEMO ISN’T BEING SHARED.

Autodemo knows that if no tracking mechanism is properly put in place, your demo may as well reside in the Sahara desert. Excluding social media or email sharing capabilities is a mammoth mistake when building your demo, however when you include social media sharing functionality, you exponentially extend reach. Associates, clients, and prospects get instantaneous access to content that will make them advocates and “ambassadors” for brand. At the end of the day your prospects are more likely to trust recommendations from trusted colleagues when evaluating software solutions, therefore your demo may be the most important sales and marketing tool you and your audience can share.
