How to Demo Your Software Product | innonate
A successful demo is comprised to two important outcomes, no matter the audience:

As a whole, the audience comes away with some level of consensus that you’re a smart, self-aware person doing worthwhile things.
At least 1 person in the audience has an “ah-ha” moment and comes away with a mission to help your product succeed, either by providing a critical feature idea, a hire candidate, potential partnership, or — in the case of a demo to investors — the desire to fight to invest.


The Core: Software is Magic. A Demo is a Magic Show.

All software have this in common:

1. There are inputs.
2. Those inputs get processed by all of our hard work and labor that goes into our software.
3. And there are outputs which are nothing short of magical.

The Preamble: Demo the Problem. Don’t Talk to it.

Two small but still important points: Keep it Simple and Stay Cool

... People are drawn to those who handle stress like nothing ever happened. If you can keep your cool, keep talking, get a few jokes out, and find a creative way to let the show go on, you’ll win more hearts and minds than if all the technology even worked. Remember, generally speaking the point of a demo is to get people to think that you’re a smart person doing worthwhile things.
