Even if your organization ends up returning to in-person work, it’s impossible to simply revert back to pre-pandemic strategies, especially when it comes to virtual sales. Your prospects and customers will likely be working remotely in some capacity, which means you’ll need to keep refining the way you sell online. Check out these best practices from experts — recorded with Prezi Video — and start driving stronger virtual sales in your organization.

Brian sees a need to properly connect the dots between offline and online interactions in more meaningful ways. To that end, he shares his “four Es” — environment, emotion, execution, and empathy — that will help you embrace a virtual world and reinvent your virtual sales presentations.
