Designing Custom Cases For Product Presentation and Sales

Nothing is more frustrating than arriving at a potential clients to make a sales presentation, only to discover that the centerpiece of your presentation has been damaged during transport. After all, you want to exude the most professional and capable presence possible, and a mangled product or product samples certainly doesn’t help your overall image. Unveiling a classy and well-designed presentation of your products or equipment is critical when making a powerful, convincing impression; custom cases will help ensure that you are looking sharp and present a dazzling 1st impression.

Advanced Technology Makes Designing Custom Cases A Cinch

Thanks to advancements and improvements in manufacturing technology, it’s easier than ever before to order a custom case and have it designed precisely. Things like variable size thermoforming, blow molding, wood and aluminum fabrication with CNC technology and many other advanced techniques have made achieving optimal results more reliable than ever. There’s no longer any need to cobble together a makeshift case when you have oddly- sized, exceptionally fragile or multiple items to bring along for an important sales presentation, thanks to the technology behind creating custom cases and foam.

Maintain Professionalism With Custom Cases

First impressions matter. From your personal presentation to the way you transport and present your case contents, your goal is to give the best product and company impression possible. Nothing can compromise your carefully considered presentation quite like a shoddy looking case. Arriving at a potential client’s office with a sleek, custom designed case is vastly preferable to arriving with a cardboard box or pulling product from an unorganized jumble from the bottom of a cheap carrying case.

Presentation Skills Training: Making an Energetic Presentation With Body Movement and Speaking Pace

Energy is a critical element for any motivational speech, whether to a rally of thousands or to one potential customer or employee. So how do we express that energy and translate it to our audience?

Two elements express energy: the movement of your body and the pace of your words.

Let’s first check out movement. Movement is very important to any presentation, both to combat your public speaking nerves and as a way of keeping audience attention. Your body movement is a way of setting a mood, either good or bad. So let’s use that movement to create an atmosphere of energy and excitement.

The Magic of Movement:

Be a moving target.

Move with energy and purpose. Take long steps and use large arm movements. This conveys to the audience that you are telling them an important and exciting idea or fact.

Make use of your entire space.

If you have a full stage, travel to one end to discuss one point and look directly at the people in that part of the audience. Then go to the other end, then the center, etc. If, on the other hand, you are locked behind a podium or table, or even seated in front of a client, make good use of all the dimensions of movement, even if you can’t go very far with your feet. Lean ahead, step back. Deeply bend your knees, reach up while on tiptoe. Reach around the podium to your left, lean on the podium with your right elbow. If you are seated, use your tailbone as a pivot and cover all the dimensions.

Pick Up Your Speaking Pace:

Ralph Nichols, one of the first people to study effective listening, discovered a surprising fact: listeners stayed more attentive and gained more information and understanding from fast-paced speakers than they did from their slower or moderately paced colleagues. His studies showed that the reason for this is that people can listen about three times faster than the average person speaks. What happens then is that about two-thirds of the listening time is available for thinking about something else… and pretty soon, the ‘something else’ becomes more interesting than the speaker.

So, to keep your audience’s attention, the answer is this: speak faster than you do in day-to-day conversation. This pace has the added advantage that it makes the audience feel they might miss something if they get distracted. When they are that focused, your energy becomes their energy and they buy into your message.

Both your movement and your speaking pace are critical to creating energy in the audience, yet there is another factor which is perhaps most critical of all:

The most significant way to transmit energy to your audience is to truly care about your subject.

In our presentation skills coaching, we often tell the story of safety advocate Ralph Nader, who is definitely not a flamboyant presenter, but who has such concern for his subject that his emotional energy immediately draws you in.

Unleashed energy can be extremely powerful.

Leashed or unleashed, energy is a significant key to motivating an audience, selling a product or project, raising funds or presenting a new policy. It also establishes you as a ‘want-to-hear’ presenter

Generating B2B Leads for Your Financial Software: No Time Like the Present

A financial and accounting software is an ERP computer application (or more specifically an Enterprise Resource Planning software) that integrates the many procedures of an organization’s accounting into a well-to-do computer program. Many of these types of software incorporate a powerful yet easy to use application for the maintenance of data pertaining to general accounting, portfolio management, stock maintenance, inventory control, sales, purchases, and other expenses of the business. It can also make reports in a click of a button to streamline processes and lessen overall operational costs with regards to financial and accounting.

This type of computer application may be a substantial need for many but the truth is that not everybody knows of this marvelous ERP software. Hence, the common mentality of a person that if-I-don’t-know-it-I-won’t-touch-it kind of feeling sinks in. It is because of this feeling that the manufacturers, programmers, and even resellers of financial and accounting software could not generate enough quality ERP leads for their own good.

There are a lot of businessmen (and women) out there that do not know the existence of this software. As such, sellers of these software might have to put in an extra amount of effort to search and qualify software sales leads lest they lose out to their competitors. In today’s business era, no matter what type of industry a company may reside in, losing out on the competition is not an option.

For these sellers of this type of software, outsourcing to a reputable telemarketing firm should be their first option in hopes of generating quality ERP leads.

The reasons for this is as plain as day: precision, expertise, and haste.

First of all, let us talk about their precision in targeting software sales leads. Many of today’s reputable telemarketing firms not only have professional telemarketers but also data specialists. These specialists make sure that the lead database they use remains updated at any given time. Hence, when a company wants to contact a specific market to generate interests for their financial and accounting software, the campaign poses no threat of contacting leads that are not within their targeted specifications.

Furthermore, when it comes to expertise, professional telemarketers have it second to none. Telemarketing firms can guarantee the expertise of their telemarketers as they hold multiple training programs to hone their representatives’ skills and talents at all times. This is to allow the software company to safeguard their name always even when these telemarketers are faced with a lot of negativity during the course of a call.

Lastly, their haste; using the telephone to produce interest is by far one of the fastest methods to get the word across about the financial and accounting software. When compared to traveling around town just to talk to leads, this method is certainly a lot quicker. In a span of a few minutes, a conversation with a lead can be done. Hence, many telemarketing firms promises more than a hundred calls within a span of an eight-hour work day.

Manufacturers, programmers, and resellers of financial and accounting software should not waste time in outsourcing to a well-known telemarketing firm. After all, there is no time like the present to generate quality ERP leads.
