Ok that was mean sorry but I couldn't resist. I probably do 3-4 demos per week. Small small deal sizes on average. Ranging anywhere from $99-$1k per month with a small set up fee. We also have usage fees we make money off of but you can't calculate that off the bat

Cool. 3-4 / week sounds low for the deal size.ย 

I'm assuming not all your deals "needs" a personalized demo to close?

Slow week 3 demos, busy is 10. Deal size ranges from 13k-50k but the big ones balloon into the hundreds. Average is probably right around 30k.ย

@Opalย word. Sounds pretty standard (demos per week) to the other data I'm seeing at a similar ACV. Thanks for sharing.

At my peak, I gave 6-8 demos a day. 30 minutes each. Back to back. The close rate sat at about 45%. When I hired a team to support growth, I went down to 4-5 demos a day and had a 60% close rate. Sure, it had a lot to do with what we were selling, but lower output resulted in greater revenue.

Wow, nice close rate.ย 

Sounds like a pretty transactional sale.

Mind sharing the average deal size and / or what you were selling?

Make sense to have a higher close rate after getting extra support + less demos.

It was a super transactional SaaS. $1200 ACV for basic product, but I was also running enterprise deals that spanned 15-50 locations so it scaled up.

3-10 on average. Deal size ranges from 50k-500k. Generally have to demo for multiple levels of the prospective buyer. Used to hate it but Iโ€™ve got it down now.ย

@Curwinย nice.ย 

What'd you used to struggle with in demos? Or why'd you hate it?
