    "See how it works"

    Modal telling me a sales person will call me

    No thanks.

    Nice enough design and some big claims on improvements but as Jon Myers said, this sort of straight to sales pitch type message leaves me colder than cold.

      Thanks, it's clear we need to fix this. I'll get to work. Any suggestions greatly appreciated as well.

        For me personally, I've reviewed a range of Sass solutions for our business and pretty much every time I'm happy if there's a demo video of some common use cases your software solves.

        Doesn't necessarily need to be a long winded mega demo - a couple of minutes is plenty to give me a feel for whether your software is initially a potential fit for my needs and if I'd like to follow up on that interest.

        After that point I don't mind speaking to a sales person if necessary, it just feels that when the very first step is potentially a sales call (even if it's actually just one of your team offering a demo instead of hard selling) is offputting to me.

          Yep 100% agree. Thanks for elaborating. We need to do a better job here, no doubt.
