While it is important to grow your digital presence in the modern world, you cannot ignore the benefits of being able to physically showcase your products. Yet, it feels like this does not happen as much anymore. Rather than demonstrate your product in person, you are forced to create conceptual videos that are not as effective in grabbing (and keeping) people’s attention. So how can you change this, and how can you showcase your product better to appeal to the right audience?
Set Up Demonstrations
Demonstrations are often the easiest way to showcase what your product does and why people should buy or invest in it. However, as many companies have shifted towards remote working, this is not as easy as it once was.
With no specific home base, there are minimal ways for you to show off your product without organizing a demonstration yourself, but this could be your only option. Hiring an existing venue or setting up industrial steel frame buildings to operate out of can give you a reliable and easy-to-find workspace that you can use for all your events.
Get Booked At Events
If you can’t organize an event yourself, you can always search for upcoming industry events and try to get booked as a presenter. These events are great for networking and getting your face out there, but they can also help you get an early idea of how your product is received.
While many of these events will only give presentation time to established businesses, you might be able to find events that offer entrepreneurs of the future a chance to show off what they can do.
Offer Customers Early Access
If you are working on a new product and want to get an idea of how successful it could be, providing early access to your customers and receiving feedback can be beneficial for product testing and highlighting any tweaks to make it perfect.
Early access is typical with digital products, and many tech companies will provide exclusive beta access for customers, but you can also offer physical products that give customers a brief idea of what you are working on. Send the product with a short note explaining what it is and offer incentives for providing feedback.
Practice, Practice, Practice
You will struggle to showcase your product in any scenario if you do not take the time to practice as much as possible. Your rehearsals are essential for in-person demos, and especially remote demonstrations where multiple things could go wrong, and it is more challenging to keep your audience’s interest.
There are many ways to perfect your demo, from practicing in front of the mirror or recording yourself and identifying any mistakes. You should also see if it’s possible to showcase it in front of friends or even strangers to help prepare yourself to deliver the perfect pitch.
Being able to showcase your product in person is always more effective compared to other methods. If you are struggling to promote your product or service, consider how these tips can help your idea thrive and reach the market you have targeted.
