- Drive more conversions: elevate your sales strategy with tailored, interactive demos for every potential client.

Life in pre-sales is no walk in the park, especially when preparing the perfect demo for sales teams. Poring over countless slide decks, scripting every interaction, and always aiming for that "wow" moment—it's demanding. Add to that the challenges of creating demos tailored to various industries and buyer personas. Research indicates that a whopping 75% of sales demos don’t address the specific needs of the client (source needed). On average, 50% of prospects claim they've sat through demos that were completely irrelevant to their needs (source needed). Just think about it: How often have you lost the spark halfway through a generic demo? It's a problem begging for a solution, and it's high time we deep dive into it.
Generic demos are a Sales-killer. Traditional sales presentations often lack the personal touch that resonates with individual prospects.
The reality is that every potential client is unique, and a one-size-fits-all approach doesn't cut it anymore. Here is the problem with limited customization: most demos are static, not taking into account the diverse industries, company sizes, or specific needs of the viewer. For a pre-sales like yourself, this can feel like pouring effort into a black hole.
Let's take a quick example to illustrate this. I prepared a demo for a major tech firm last week. I painstakingly detailed our product's specs, but the feedback was clear: "It doesn't relate to our industry-specific challenges." The aftermath? Lost engagement, wasted time, and a frustrated sales team.
Your answer is interactive demos.
Interactive product demos aren't just presentations; they're experiences. Tailored to address the unique challenges and needs of your prospects, these demos provide a hands-on look at what your product can do.
