When it comes to sales, the ability to deliver compelling product demonstrations and presentations is a crucial skill. Welcome to our guide on the must-have product demo tools and integrations that can transform your presentations from ordinary to extraordinary. As we delve into this journey, you'll discover a powerful ecosystem of tools designed to enhance every aspect of your product demos.
Sessions’ agenda-building tool is perhaps one of the most instrumental tools when it comes to product demos and virtual presentations. With this tool, you and your team members can collaborate on agendas together, ensuring that group presentations are seamless. Plus, AI Copilot will even help you construct your agenda with nothing more than a prompt and a click! AI Copilot will continue generating agendas that you can customize and save as a template.
The beauty of this tool is how it significantly reduces the prep work of your demo. Once you create an agenda that you’re happy with you can save it as a template, included with any features you choose to embed inside. Additionally, it can integrate with your booking page.
You can create your demo booking page with your availability, as well as add the team members responsible for demos to the booking page through the team routing feature. When you create your agenda, you can link it to this booking page. Now whenever someone books a demo, the agenda is automatically embedded and all the resources are ready and waiting. The agenda ensures all the resources you might need during the demo are prepared and ready for you to use whenever you need them.
The booking link can be embedded as a button, component, or page on your website. That button takes you to the booking page where a potential client can choose the best time and date to meet for a demo. Once booked, your entire team will get an email informing them of the booked session, and the potential client also receives a confirmation email. Easy peasy!
Sessions’ My Product tool allows you to showcase your app, website, or any other platform directly into your meeting. This tool is available to all members of a shared workspace, allowing you and your team members to collaborate on your sales demo.
This tool is perfect for when you have an app or platform that you want to show to your potential clients in a demo. The co-browsing feature allows you to show your client around the app and even let them interact with it in real time.
During the usage of the My Product tool, one person takes the lead in presenting, captivating the entire audience with their use of the configured link, app, or platform. However, co-hosts and participants have the option to request control of the presentation, allowing everyone else to observe their actions in real-time.
Miro: Collaborate Whiteboards
In modern product demos, visual communication and dynamic collaboration are the keys to capturing your audience's attention and conveying complex ideas effectively. This is where Miro steps into the spotlight as an invaluable tool, seamlessly integrated with Sessions.
Miro works as your digital canvas, enabling real-time collaborative whiteboarding during product demos. Picture a virtual space where you and your clients can easily sketch ideas, create diagrams, and map out concepts. Whether you're presenting to a small group or hosting a large-scale webinar, Miro's capabilities adapt to your needs.
Enhanced engagement: Visual elements tend to resonate more strongly with audiences. Miro's interactive whiteboard encourages active participation, making your demos more engaging and memorable.
Effortless idea sharing: With Miro, you can draw, annotate, and brainstorm together in real time. This fosters a sense of teamwork and enables instant feedback, ensuring your demos are as polished as they can be.
Streamlined communication: Complex ideas can be challenging to convey through text alone. Miro simplifies the process by letting you illustrate your points visually, leading to clearer and more effective communication.
Mentimeter and Slido: Engage Your Audience
Audience engagement is the magic ingredient that can transform a passive viewer into an enthusiastic participant. Mentimeter and Slido, two powerful tools integrated seamlessly with Sessions, can be your secret weapons for achieving interactive product demos.
An engaged potential client is more likely to retain information, ask questions, and take desired actions. They are the ones who remember your product and are inspired to explore it further. Therefore, fostering engagement is pivotal in making your product demos not just informative but memorable.
Mentimeter allows you to create interactive presentations with live polls, quizzes, word clouds, and more. With real-time feedback, you can tailor your demo on the fly, addressing your audience's needs and interests. This integration ensures that your viewers are not just passive observers but active participants in the demo experience.
Slido takes client interaction to another level by facilitating seamless Q&A sessions and live polling. It empowers your audience to ask questions in real-time, providing you with valuable insights into their concerns and interests. Slido's collaborative approach ensures that everyone's voice is heard, transforming your demos into two-way conversations rather than one-way lectures.
Figma and Canva: Design Demo Materials
Humans are naturally drawn to visually pleasing content, making it essential to present your product or ideas in an engaging and polished manner. As such, the visual appeal of your materials plays a vital role in capturing and retaining your audience's attention. Enter Figma and Canva, two design powerhouses integrated with Sessions, offering you the tools to craft stunning, impactful demo materials.
Figma is a collaborative design platform that empowers teams to create, prototype, and collaborate on designs in real-time. Its integration with Sessions allows you to easily send these prototypes in Sessions with just a few clicks. Sessions stores your designs and prototypes, so you can access them wherever you need to show your potential clients.
Canva is a user-friendly graphic design tool known for its accessibility and versatility. This platform enables you to craft eye-catching presentations, infographics, and marketing materials with ease. You don't need to be a design expert to produce professional-quality visuals, thanks to Canva's intuitive interface and extensive library of templates and assets.
YouTube and Vimeo: The Power of Video
Video content captivates your audience, conveys complex concepts with clarity, and adds a human touch to your demos. In an era of remote presentations and webinars, video is the bridge that connects you with your viewers. Using Sessions, you can create presentation videos or how-to’s and upload them to YouTube. Plus, you can embed any locally stored video into your presentation. Once you embed videos into your presentation’s agenda, your clients can rewatch them from Memory, ensuring they’re always accessible.
As a bonus, the videos themselves are beneficial for your entire brand if they’re public on YouTube, allowing other clients to watch them, learn about your brand, and understand how your product works.
With YouTube and Vimeo, you can seamlessly share video content during your demos, whether product walkthroughs, customer testimonials, or engaging animations directly inside Sessions. YouTube's robust platform ensures that your videos are accessible to a global audience, making it an ideal choice for reaching and impressing potential clients.
