October 26, 2010: Doing Killer Product Demos

About this presentation: Creating product demonstrations (demos) is a common task for product managers, particularly for software and web-based products. Demos come in many forms, including screenshots, recorded videos, and live demonstrations to sales teams and prospects. With the increased popularity of web video and webinars, demos are increasingly important to sales and marketing efforts. Unfortunately, many demos fail to wow their audience due to avoidable mistakes. The purpose of this presentation is to share general principles and practical tips for creating and giving compelling product demonstrations. Download the slides from this presentation (11MB PPT)
