After Workshop Completion

After completing this deo skills training workshop, students will:

  • Improve overall Demo Skills
  • Learn a proven, easy to learn, yet incredibly powerful demo structure
  • Understand proper demo structure and rules for effective demos
  • Make the demo a “sales dialog” not a monolog; cover only what is important to the customer
  • Learn check-in techniques to adapt the demo on the fly
  • Know how to cope with unforeseen occurrences
  • Discover how to make sure demo is concise, relevant, and compelling

Learn how to use PIE:

  • Permission – Learn to get permission using Adaptive Discovery during the demo
  • Interaction – Handle questions and objections, ask questions to validate that you communicated clearly and effectively
  • Engagement – Use engagement techniques to grab your customers interest and keep it throughout the demo

Using PIE, you only cover what is important, keeping you customer engaged and  leaving more time for great sales dialogs that lead to a sale. PIE also helps with customer engagement, especially with remote (Web) demos.
