Demo Jam: Everything You Need To Know

We are very excited that you're interested in the AppExchange Demo Jam. Whether it's at an event or online, the Demo Jam is a great way to increase community engagement and awareness of apps by bringing app users and app builders together.

What is a Demo Jam?

Demo Jams are a game show style event where 4-6 app partners showcase their most compelling app in a super short, no fluff, 3-minute demo.

- At the end, the attendees vote live on their favorite demo (the winner gets an exciting prize)

- Hosted by AppExchange and Salesforce MVPs

- Theme might differ each month (sales, marketing, service, healthcare, financial services, etc.)

Where Is It?

Demo Jams are held live at events, webinars (register here), and online on via YouTube.  Live events are confirmed based on each event location, but they're typically held in the Expo hall theater of the event.

Why Do It?

Demo Jams are a great opportunity to give a demo to a live audience of 80-150. The Demo Jam videos have seen up to 11,000 views per video. They are a platform for brand exposure. AppExchange promotes heavily and each partner will hopefully promote for great cross-pollination.

It's an excellent opportunity to put your best demo delivery teammate in the spotlight. Plus, it's a TON of fun!

Can I See Some Examples?

What are the Demo Jam rules?

It's simple. There are only three rules.

1. Your live demo must be three minutes (or less)

2. NO slides / power point / video - it must be a live demo

3. There will only be one winner per Demo Jam

How do I win a Demo Jam?

There's no better way to find out how to win a Demo Jam than to hear from past winners. Here's what they have to say:

I'm interested. What are the next steps?

Think you've got what it takes to demo your app in three minutes or less? If you've got a paid AppExchange solution with an agreement in place, check out this page to get started. Please note participation is based on availability. Each month has a different theme, and the AppExchange team will work with you to determine the best theme for your solution. Once you're in a Demo Jam, get ready to:

- Attend a mandatory 30-minute kick off call

- Practice your 3-minute demo

- Arrive to your Demo Jam on time or early

- Share it on social media with hashtag #DemoJam

To be considered for a Demo Jam at events, you must be a sponsor of the event and have a live, active AppExchange listing.
