Virtual selling or remote selling is the new normal. As we transition more into a more virtual mode of selling, we are discovering that technology is our friend. Here are the 4 tools for virtual selling you should definitely include in your work process to get ahead:
Who doesn’t know Zoom, right? It’s one of the most popular web conferencing tools out there right now. It is an easy-to-use cloud platform for video, voice, and content sharing. You can also run chats across mobile devices, desktops, telephones, and room systems.
The Free Plan actually lets you have a high-quality video call with up to 100 people. That’s amazing!
No other platform comes closer to the abundance of features and benefits Zoom has to offer. So our pick is Zoom.
Alternatives can be GoToMeeting, ClickMeeting, Skype, etc.
Google Drive is just one of the free tools you get once you sign up for a Google account. You can store your files here. Organise images, videos, PDFs, documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and what not.
And then you can share those files with others, as per your preferences. There’s no limit. You can share any file with anyone who has the file link, or limit the access to only those on your domain.
All this and more with the Google security everyone loves.
Alternatives can be DropBox, OneDrive, etc.
A high degree for success in virtual selling depends on your presentation skills. And Prezi is a great tool to create non-sequential slideshows, interactive presentations, and videos.
If you are new to creating presentations, Prezi is great for beginners. It has an extensive library of designs and transitions. It can also be used to gamify learning.
Alternatives can be PowerPoint, Keynote, etc.
Loom is a recent discovery by Pritha. It’s a great tool for screen recording WITH your face in it. Imagine how much you can elevate the presentation experience of your clients by using multimedia presentations with animated transitions.
