Conducting Great Web Demos And Sales Calls

Over 60% of customers find web demos boring and even annoying. Sales professionals today have larger territories and less time for face-to-face sales calls. Web demos and meetings are a good alternative-but only if they convert leads into sales. Are you preparing your sales people to worry less about technology and focus on connecting and communicating with your customers?

More and more sales people and their supporting cast are expected to reach out to customers to deliver virtual sales calls, product demos and meetings. How prepared are your people for this new reality?'

  • 90% of sales people say face-to-face selling is the most effective. Yet travel budgets and time constraints make that increasingly difficult and most sales professionals and support folks get no training in the unique challenges of online presenting.
  • Many companies complain that online demos don’t convert enough prospects to sales
  • Even great live presenters struggle when they can’t get verbal and visual input from their audience, and there are deals on the line
  • In a study conducted by, 2/3 of customers say that they hate the way sales people and product support folks present demos. They’re too long, not relevant and boring.
