How to Create a Single Video Demo

Consensus is a powerful platform to house all of your video content whether it is a demo we create or a single video you’ve created in-house. Consensus allows you to take advantage of insightful Demolytics and full demo player functionality with all of your content.

You can upload a video to the Consensus platform by going to Demo Management > Create Demo > Single Demo:



STEP 1: Demo Info

In the first step you'll be able to add the Internal and External (client facing) Titles for the demo. The Description is optional and can be used to add elements that are searchable within the Demo Library and other Demo dropdowns



STEP 2: Demo Style Settings

In Step 2 you will customize the theme of your DemoBoard. You can choose from the Flat Design or the Transparent Flat Design (which gives you the ability to add an image behind the demoplayer). Next you'll choose the language of the demoplayer, for which we currently support the following:

  • English
  • Spanish
  • French
  • Portuguese
  • Czech
  • German 
  • Italian
  • Russian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Chinese 
  • Swedish

Within the Contact Info section, you'll add a general company phone number, email, as well as links to your company social media channels.

The final thing you'll do in step two is add your logo, favicon, and set what colors you want to use for the demoplayer.


STEP 3:  Demo Content

In Step 3 you'll upload the video and related documents for your Demo.


NOTE* You can add multiple Related Docs to your Demo


STEP 4: Stakeholder Actions

In Step 4 you'll be able to choose where the Share Prompt will populate within a Sales DemoBoard. You'll also be able to choose if you want to enable BuyerBoard for this specific demo. If you're interested in learning more about the BuyerBoard see our article here.



STEP 5: Additional Interactions

Step 5 allows you to choose where the Lead Collection Form will populate for the public versions of your demo (using the demo on your website or sharing on your social media channels). We recommend placing the Lead Collection Form after the demo is completed. To do this, select "At the end of the demo". 

You'll also be able to choose if you want to have Call to Action buttons populate on the demplayer. You can have up to four different CTA's on the demoplayer (along with the "Share This Demo" CTA if you're sending Sales demos).

NOTE* The "Invite Others" Call to Action is automatically added to DemoBoard (Sales) links you create with your Demos

NOTE** Call to Actions linked to the Consensus Lead Capture Form will NOT show within the DemoBoard (Sales) links you create with your Demos

Examples of what these CTA's look like on a Sales (Personalized) and Marketing (Public) DemoBoard:




STEP 6: Finalize

In the final step you'll be able to add your details for Web Analytics, Demo IDs and Google Adwords tracking as well as set the Demo Access for your Demo

  • Demo Access
    • Visible in Demo Library - Allow Users to preview and request access to this Demo by placing it within your Demo Library
    • Demo Access
      • Self Service "Can Use" - allow your Users to automatically gain "Can Use" access to demos when they request it within the Demo Library. This limits them to only Create DemoBoards or get the Public Link to your Demo based on their User Role and permissions
      • User/Group Access - Grant access to Users and set what level of access you want those Users/Groups to have

Publishing Your Demo

Once you have everything set for your Demo, publishing it allows it to be used. This allows you to get everything set up for your Demo and then set it live by Publishing it. Users won't be able to create DemoBoards or get Public/Marketing links to your Demo if it is not Published.

This can also be used as a "kill switch" if you determine you no longer want Viewers to be able to watch your Demo. Unpublishing the demo will send Viewers that navigate to the Demo to the "Demo is expired" page.


That's it! You now have a finished demo. Remember, there is no limit to the number of videos you can upload to your account. Take advantage of Consensus' powerful demolytics by uploading all of your video content to your Consensus account.
