7 Stellar SaaS Product Demos Examples

6 minute read

In our 2024 State of the Interactive Product Demo report, we found that interactive demos have increased in popularity by nearly 90% since 2022.

And we also found that the highest-converting demos had specific characteristics in common.

To ensure you’re designing demos that convert, we’re sharing how 7 SaaS companies are using Navattic demos to give prospects easier hands-on product access and get them to aha moments faster.

Product demo software defined

Product demos, otherwise known as “interactive product demos” and “interactive demos,” provide prospects and customers with a walk-through experience of your product.

In this post, we’re referring to asynchronous product demos — not live demo calls with a sales rep.

These standalone product demos are used throughout the sales and marketing funnel to educate and sell prospects on the value of your product and make a compelling case for customer upsells.

Because demo automation software like Navattic is no-code, it’s easy for any GTM team member to personalize interactive demos to showcase the specific features or use cases existing or potential customers are most interested in.

The most common deployment for product demos is linked out via a CTA on a website or in a demo center, which can be included on a company’s website or used internally by the sales team.

How to create a product demo in 7 steps

Creating a stellar product demo takes a few steps:

1. Decide what software you want to use. You can use interactive demo software like Navattic or in-product video software to build your demos. Interactive demos give your prospects hands-on access to your product so they can see how it works themselves, whereas video demos simply show how a part of the product works.

2. Choose your use case. Our data shows that the most popular use cases for top-performing demos are website embeds, in-product enablement, help articles, and feature launches.

3. Collect internal assets. Sales calls, customer calls, and frequently used slides or one-pagers are great jumping-off points for demo content. For more ideas, chat with your CS, Sales, and Product teammates.

4. Create a storyboard. Form a demo outline. Your goal should be to incorporate 2 - 4 “aha moments” that are unique to your platform.

5. Build your demo. Try task batching to speed things up — create your entire demo theme in one go or insert all the CTAs before filling in the rest of the demo.

6. Decide to gate vs ungate. If your goal is lead generation, gate your demo. If your goal is education or awareness, ungating will get as many eyeballs on your product as possible.

7. Iterate on your demo. After your demo has been live for a while, use Navattic’s native dropoff reporting to see where people get stuck and make adjustments accordingly.
