You can ‘Show and Tell’ Without the Product

Salespeople often depend on the “show, don’t tell mantra.” That’s why micro demos have been dominant for so long. However, the “show, don’t tell” style of sales has a plethora of shortcomings. For starters, you may not always have access to the product.

Interactive demos provide the perfect means to sell a product when you don’t have access to the physical product.

Interactive demos have been great for sales enablement at our company. Interactive demos show the product in an easy-to-understand and extremely compelling way. In our case, interactive demos have given us the perfect low-friction sales enablement process, and we couldn’t be happier.

2. It’s Alive! Features & Benefits

Demos that are interactive and educational will engage and educate your potential customers.

3. Lead Generation and Sales Enablement

Interactive demos are great tools for facilitating the buyer’s journey and generating leads through an easy-to-use sales process.

4. Connecting e-Commerce

Consider a 3D augmented reality display that reveals the view of a consumable part and then directs the viewer to a website where he or she can buy that part. Connecting users directly through interactive product demos increases e-Commerce engagement.
