When looking to purchase software or applications to help streamline your business, it is now commonplace to see ‘free demo’ or ‘live demonstration’ as an option before making a decision to buy. But why do so many people offer a demo and how does it really benefit you and your business?
Marketing has evolved and the digital age is well and truly here to stay, and while e-books, emails and social media are a great way to find out about a brand and their products, there is nothing quite like getting the information face-to-face or, in this case, via a web-based app connection. Online demonstrations are offered because they are the simplest way for a manufacturer to show you everything that their software can offer, but what can you really gain from signing up for a free demo?
1. Get a greater understanding of the product
Experience the product’s user interface and see how it all works.
2. See the benefits for yourself in real time
As you go through the demonstration, you will be shown the features and benefits of the product in real-time, which is a far more in-depth insight than you might glean from a PDF.
3. Speak to an expert to decide whether it’s the right fit for your business
Demonstrations are typically hosted by people who know the software inside and out, and will be able to provide in-depth details to ensure you choose the right version for your business.
4. Get answers to help your decision process
By speaking directly with a specialist you can get more detailed answers as you go through the demonstration process, which should help you make a more informed decision on your business needs.
5. Choose a date and time that suits you
Demonstrations are typically hosted throughout the working day, so you can choose a time that best suits you and any other colleagues that are involved in the process.
