InterWEBviews Can Provide the In Depth Coverage of Your Products

The power point presentations made by the sales people comprise the bulk of the design and promotion effort these days.  Unfortunately, the results are only seen by one prospect at a time.

The InterWEBview allows all this work to be viewed by many rather than a few. McIlvaine acts as a host in a recorded go-to-meeting session. The sales person who normally makes these presentations directly to customers can be the presenter. At the end, the host asks a few questions and can then even display the supplier website. The presenter then shows where additional information of the products can be retrieved.

Because of the low cost and high impact, the presentations can be conducted in several languages.  We recommend English, Chinese and Spanish but other languages should also be considered.

There are links to the recording in the free McIlvaine Global Knowledge Orchard and on YouTube. There should also be links from the supplier site. McIlvaine e-mails can assure there is traffic to these sites.


Here are links to two InterWEBviews™ conducted in the last two weeks.


The subject on the one in English is the Danfoss VFD drives. The Global Decisions Orchard version is found at:
