KEYS TO A SUCCESSFUL VIRTUAL SALES MEETING
Sales and leadership meetings don’t cooperate with timetables produced by pandemics. The fiscal year will start whether or not the pandemic has been controlled.
The good news is sales meetings can be done virtually, and can be much more sophisticated and high-quality than you might expect. The even better news is that it’s not too late to plan your online sales meeting—and it’s definitely not too early.
However, there’s more involved than simply scheduling back-to-back Zoom or Webex meetings. Here are the top 5 points to consider when planning and delivering a sales meeting that will rival your in-person meetings, while keeping everyone safe.
Message is always important, but especially so when doing a virtual event. metroConnections can counsel you on the best way to strategically develop a plan for this, based on your goals for the event. And, make sure your message comes through within a high-quality production. Having a partner like metroConnections guide you through program delivery, transitions, queues, and balance of concept can make a major difference in the outcome of your event.
Zoom fatigue is a very real concern these days, especially for people who spend most of their days in video meetings. That’s why it’s even more important to plan for variety in your virtual event and get the most memorable speakers you can (and, if they aren’t memorable but have to speak, keep them as short as possible).
At metroConnections, we have considerable experience helping organizations plan dynamic meetings. We can help keep the event interesting with high-quality video content and engagement (see the next point), and we can set up virtual sales exhibit booths or environments as well, if your meeting needs them. Yes—you can do exhibits virtually!
