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:


In the first step you'll be able to add the External (client facing) and Internal Titles for the demo. The Description is also client facing and is used to populate the post if a viewer decides to share your demo on their social media channels. The search function in the Manage Demos section will also search the description field.

You also have the ability to dictate if this demo will be accessible to others within your organization or if you want to restrict access. You can customize who has access by selecting specific users or Groups which have been created within Consensus. 

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, we currently support the following languages:

  • 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 company social media channels:

The final thing you'll do in step two is add your logo, favicon, and dictate what colors you want to use for the demoplayer. Once you set this up it will remember this in subsequent builds.

In Step 3 you'll upload the videos for this Single Video Demo. (we recommend using an MP4):

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 BuyerBoard see our article here.

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).        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).

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



In the final step you'll be able to add your details for Web Analytics and Google Adwords tracking. From this step you'll also be able to preview how a demo looks/works when it's being used in a Marketing use case as well as how it performs when creating a Personalized DemoBoard for a client/prospects.

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