Interactive Demo Analytics

Remember the last time you had to deliver a sales pitch, feeling a heavy sigh escape as you prepared for another round of the same old dance? The fear that your prospect shares your sense of deja vu? In the back of your mind, the nagging thought: there must be a way to make these pitches more engaging, more value-driven. After all, you're not just selling a product; you're connecting needs to solutions. And now, you're about to learn how. No magic, no tricks. Just the power of data.

You've taken your first step toward an enriched sales experience with the opening of your demo gallery. But that's just the beginning. The real secret lies in the gallery’s untold stories, stories that can be decoded through data. With the right metrics, each demo becomes a goldmine of insights, a way to tailor and boost your sales strategy like never before. Welcome to the new age of data-driven sales.

Demo Analytics Matter: Unleashing the Power of Demo Gallery Analysis

You've built a demo gallery. It's a blend of useful product insights and engaging showcases. It's a tool designed to turn prospects into opportunities. But how can you tell if it's doing its job? Metrics.

Metrics tell the story of your demo gallery. They show how your demos resonate with your audience. By tracking metrics, you learn what works and what needs improvement.

How to Analyze and Act on the Aggregate Demo Analytics?

Let’s look at some out-of-the-box demo metrics provided by Demoboost at the summary level.

  • Demo Views

The increase in demo views suggests that visibility and content are not an issue, but the plateau in demo usage indicates that not all content is equally compelling. A deep dive into which demos were viewed, by whom, and for how long can provide insight into which types of content resonate the most with your audience. This information can guide the development of future demos and improve the overall effectiveness of your demo gallery.

  • Optimize User Experience: 

The consistent increase in time spent on each demo could be a positive sign of engagement. However, it could also indicate that the demos are becoming too complex or difficult to navigate. Gather user feedback or run usability tests to identify any barriers to user engagement and implement changes to streamline the user experience.

  • Promote Advocacy: 

The NPS is calculated as the difference between the percentage of users who are Promoters (those scoring 9 or above) and the percentage of users who are Detractors (those scoring 6 or below). These scores are given in response to the question, "How likely are you to recommend this demo to a friend or colleague?" For context, the SaaS industry average NPS was 41 in 2022. High NPS scores suggest that users would recommend your demos to others. Encourage this behavior by making it easy for users to share demos on social media, via email, or through other channels. Use social listening tools to monitor mentions of your demos online and engage with users who are acting as brand advocates.

  • Improve Demo Completion Rate: 

If the median demo completion rate is low, you should investigate why users are dropping off before the end. You could survey users, asking them for their reasons for not completing a demo or if there were parts of the demo they found uninteresting or difficult to understand. You might also use analytics to pinpoint exactly where in the demo users are dropping off.

  • Act on User Feedback:

The average demo rating provides a straightforward metric for the overall user impression of your demos. Investigate what differentiates highly-rated demos from lower-rated ones, and use that insight to improve the content, structure, or delivery of future demos.

By using these strategies, you'll be able to optimize your demo gallery based on real user data, potentially improving both user engagement and conversion rates.

How to Fine-Tune Your Sales Strategy with Individual Demo-Session Analytics? 

We live in a data-driven world. Data tells a story. It shows your success, your challenges, and your growth areas. For your demo gallery, metrics are vital. They show user habits and preferences. Tracking these metrics over time reveals trends. For example, if users consistently drop off midway through a demo, you know something isn't working. 

The data helps you understand your demos' performance. But, data alone isn't enough. The key is to use this data to improve your demo gallery. Understanding the numbers helps you fine-tune your strategies.

What do these numbers tell us?

  • Sessions: More sessions mean stronger engagement. Sessions refer to how many times the demo is being opened. It may indicate that the demo is being shared by the lead.

  • Session growth: Leads with higher session growth are likely more interested.

  • Time spent: Longer durations can mean interest or a complex demo. Cross-check this with time spent on the same demo by other leads.

  • Views: More views equals a wider reach.

Using this data, we can better our sales strategies. A lead spending more time on a demo could mean interest in that use case - a great way to start a discovery call. Knowing which demos are liked tells us what hits the mark. We can prepare relevant use cases to share.

Where a prospect drops off or whether they've shared a demo can guide the first chat. It helps tailor the talk to the prospect's needs. Demo metrics can shape your sales approach. It helps make it more personal and practical.

PS: One of the strongest advantages of Demoboost is its ability to seamlessly integrate with Salesforce. This integration allows us to pull all of the above insights directly into the CRM, providing an in-depth understanding of each lead's engagement.

5 Ways to use Demo Analytics to transform your Sales Process

Metrics give insights. Let's talk about how we can put these insights into action. 

  • Implement successful demos into your sales pitch

If a specific demo in your demo gallery has lots of views or high completion rates, it's engaging. It's hitting the mark. Take that content into the sales pitch. For example, if demo 5 is a hit, talk about it in the discovery call. 

  • Use the Qualification Insights to Guide Your Discovery 

Use the insights about demos viewed and the engagements data to kick start a rich and discovery conversation, giving more information and asking pointed questions about those specific topics.

  • Add Necessary Information where there is Confusion 

Always encourage the viewers to ask questions through the comments functionality to uncoverer areas that are not clear. Make you continuously improve the messaging so it's clear and convincing.

  • Change the Narrative in the high Drop-Off Points

If users drop off at a certain point, there's a problem. Maybe it's confusing or uninteresting. Prepare to explain this part in the sales call or focus on more engaging features. 

  • Build Stakeholder Maps

 If a prospect shares a demo, they find it valuable. Ask about the shared content in the sales call. It could help involve more decision-makers. So, using demo gallery metrics can shape sales strategies. It can make sales chats more personal and effective. It's not just about showcasing a product; it's about conducting successful sales conversations. 

With the right insights, a salesperson can avoid generic questioning during a discovery call and focus on what truly interests the prospect. This transforms the discovery call into a value-driven conversation. There's nothing more daunting for a salesperson than not knowing what to ask during a discovery call. Too often, we fall back on checklists like MEDDIC, but this approach can feel like an interrogation to the prospect. It becomes hard to prepare to add value to the conversation.

But what if we knew which demo is most interesting to the prospect? 

This knowledge can help us anticipate their problems and align our offerings to their needs. We can share relevant use cases and value from our company's experience. We transform the interrogation into a value-driven conversation.

By turning insights from demo metrics into action, we can create a highly targeted, engaging, and value-driven discovery call. This approach empowers sales teams to personalize their approach, demonstrate the tangible value they can bring to the prospect's business, and set the stage for a stronger, more fruitful relationship with the prospect.

Conclusion - Demo Analytics Power Up Sales Strategy 

Demo analytics give us a golden chance. They help us understand our leads. They help us shape our sales strategy. These metrics help us create engaging, valuable discovery calls. Now, we're transitioning into a more efficient and effective approach, one that is shaped by the real-time actions and preferences of our leads. By using the power of demo metrics, we can change how we sell. We can improve our conversion rates. We can drive business success.
