This free tool has really helped my closings

Here's something I recently started using to close more offline sales when I wasn't face to face. I used to talk to prospects on the phone try to get them to go to different websites and they would struggle typing in the correct url and I couldn't tell what they are seeing. Most business owners aren't very technical so it makes it all the harder

Then I started using joinme.com. It lets them see my screen. So after I make initial contact and they are interested in knowing more I schedule a time when they can be on the phone in front of their computer.

Before the scheduled call I open up all the browser windows I'll need (example google keyword tool showing number of searches, their bad reviews, or where they rank, their google places listings, sample websites I've done, etc. depending what I'm offering.)

When we start the call I have them go to joinme and they can see my screen. I then make the presentation showing the screens I want them to see and all they need to do is watch the sceen and we can discuss it. It works great because you control what they see and they don't have to anything technical. It really impresses them and you can lead them to the close.

If you aren't using this give it a try.

      You can just both use Skype instead. It also supports the feature and it's much less hassle.

      P.S: I know that because that's the way I explain my GF how to delete her browsing history

        I don't understand what you mean by hassle?

        I use skype also but for offline clients I like joinme.

        With joinme they don't have to install anything. They just go to the website and type in a code I give them to see my screen. I think they would be much more comfortable doing that than installing skype

    Exactly. With joinme, there's nothing to install. You would request a prospect over the phone to subscribe to Skype so they can see your presentation??? Good luck with that!

    For joinme, well some people hadn't up to date flash on their PCs and it didn't work for them. Others don't have access to the web. A few are wary of anything new to them. For 80% of them though, it works fine. And indeed, it's free for regular use, unlike many other screen sharing options like teamviewer which is quite a bundle for business use.

    I can't believe the number of people that don't know the dot me URL exists. They ask "join dot me... DOT COM?"

    Oh BTW, make it a habit to exit joinme!!!! I have left it on after a call is done many times They continue to see everything you're doing...

      That's a sweet idea! I agree, a lot of people won't want to download a software to chat with you if they don't have skype.

      I'm gonna test this out and see how it goes.
