  • Unlock your BDRs potential: with the right tools, they can bridge the gap between potential clients and sales faster.
  • Feature highlight: interactive demos for outreach let your leads engage hands-on, ensuring the qualification of the hottest opportunities and a fuller booking calendar.
  • Problem solver: say goodbye to post-meeting doubts. Reinforce key takeaways and keep your product at the forefront of prospects' minds.


Every Head of BDR understands the value of first impressions. But what if you could make that first impression even more impactful? A recent study revealed that 70% of B2B buyers consider engaging sales presentations a top deciding factor (source: Forrester). Meanwhile, another study states that almost half of all buyers view between three to five pieces of content before even talking to a sales rep (source: Hubspot). This situation needs we deep dive in to understand better the problem and how to face it.

The problem

Engaging but not selling.

Even with great outreach, if a lead doesn't get a tangible feel of your product, conversion chances diminish. Traditional sales collaterals like brochures or standard video presentations might provide information, but they lack the interactive component necessary for immediate engagement. Without interaction, BDRs face the challenge of longer conversion cycles, often leading to lost opportunities or extended follow-ups.

Let me share you my experience. Last week, one of my BDRs shared a product brochure during a cold call. The prospect seemed interested but later mentioned they couldn't fully grasp the product's value. It's these small gaps that cost companies potential revenue streams.

The solution

The answer is interactive demos.

Interactive product demos are not just any presentations. They are immersive, letting prospects actively engage with product features. BDRs can:

  • Use these demos during initial outreach, sparking curiosity.
  • Share post-sales calls to underline important product features, ensuring the product remains top-of-mind.
  • Customize demos during their primary demo call, tailoring the pitch based on the lead's unique needs.

The benefits

  • Shortened sales cycles: With leads immediately getting a hands-on feel, they're quicker to visualize the product's value, thus accelerating decision-making.
  • Increased engagement: Interactivity ensures that your product remains memorable, enhancing the probability of conversion.
  • Tailored pitches: Every prospect is different. Customizable demos mean every pitch can be unique, aligning perfectly with the lead's needs.

Given these transformative advantages, isn't it time you let your BDRs use interactive demos?

How to maximize the potential of interactive demos for BDRs?

Transitioning from conventional to interactive demos? Here's a structured approach:

  • Identify key features: what are the standout features of your product? Highlight them.
  • Craft a journey: how should the demo flow? What sequence offers the best narrative?
  • Engage BDRs in creation: BDRs know best what resonates with leads. Involve them in the demo creation process.
  • Reiterate based on feedback: leads might provide invaluable insights. Use them to refine the demos further.
