Five Tips For A Great Software Demo

Whether you need to close a sale, gather end-user feedback, show progress to your customer, or simply explain how your product works, sooner or later, you will need to demo your software product.

Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to perform hundreds of demos to audiences of various sizes. I’ve also had the chance to attend demos hosted by others. The following represent the top 5 tips I’ve learned over the last decade regarding demos.

Manage Your Audience’s Expectations

Have you ever gone to see a movie everyone raved about and walk out totally disappointed? More often than not, moviegoers feel let down not because the picture was bad, but rather because it was worse than they anticipated. It didn’t meet their expectations.

Similarly, if people show up to a demo thinking they’re about to see a finished product, they expect it to be virtually defect-free, aesthetically pleasing, and user-friendly. They woul

Recommended Software for Arena Management

When there is a little over a month left to enter the data for a thousand plus cattle penning teams into a fickle spread sheet software program that was built by good intentioned volunteers; the last thing anyone should be doing is looking for replacement software. However, as any event/entry secretary or producer knows this is sometimes the lifeline that is needed to get the job done.

The preparation of all of the necessary data combined with balancing a three-quarter of a million dollar show in the six weeks prior to its start should have been enough to do. Throwing in a new piece of software to learn and master would be considered ludicrous to say the least. The producers deemed it to be a necessity in view of the history of inconsistencies in the program currently in use.

With a three-year old recommendation in hand and very little back ground checking, Arena Management Software became the chosen lifeline. The software was purchased, loaded onto the computers, play

Software Piracy

SOFTWARE PIRACY

We regularly hear reports about the cost to the software industry of software piracy, but are the claims to be taken at face value? Statistics are notoriously biased towards what the author is trying to say.

Types of Software:

1. Commercial software, purchased with a licence for one or more computers.

20 Things You Need To Know About Software Patents

On July 31, 1790, Samuel Hopkins was issued the first patent for a process of making potash, an ingredient used in fertilizer. President George Washington signed the patent.

Since that day more than 6 million patents have been issued.

I saw some potash/fertilizer the other day I need to tell you about. I don’t watch much TV, but I do enjoy the show Shark Tank. For me, it looks like a lot of fun to be on the panel. I have tremendous respect for anyone who makes enough of a success of him or her self to be in a position to invest. That’s what every entrepreneur works towards… that freedom and those choices.

That said, I saw some advice from “Shark” investor Barbara Corcoran the other day which made me cringe and I wanted to put this out there as an addendum to her advice. You see, Barbara is not in the world of software. She deals with real estate and products. In an interview with inc.com she said the following on the biggest mistake
