Ben Kennedy, senior sales engineer at Branch.io, believes you are using your software trial incorrectly in your sales motion.
On a call with our founder Joe Caprio, Peter Cohan brought up a concept from his book Great Demo: How To Create and Execute Stunning Software Demonstrations. Instead of walking through a long, arduous demo the salesperson should instead “do the last thing first” and show the end result.
