Those are the absolute easiest to eliminate!

I hired a company once that I wasn't impressed with their website...I have never NOT listened to my gut again!

Why would I spend a dime to improve my efficiency on something inefficient?

6. Circle back around to the demo in a week or a month, see if it has improved. Then decide.

I would definitely ignore a company with a dysfunctinoal demo site. I don't have time to play around with that - there are many competing companies I can choose from.

Annette,

No product is going to do the trick.  How about using those $$$ to have coffee with your sphere, lunch, dinner...invite them to something fun!

it would depend how "really dysfunctional" it is. If there was only one feature of lesser importance on your list that did not appear to work as intended may proceed if all other conditions passed as that is a rather potent list of features, otherwise, IMHO...easy peasy number 1. You only get one chance to make a first impression, and IF they cared about quality the demo site should be flawless.

Saying it doesn't make it so. If they claim to be able to do all that for you and have a dysfunctional demo website themselves... well, DUH... move on!

If I was interested in any product, and it came with a demo that was really problematic, I'd pass on that product.

Labor is expensive, tech to replace labor is a bit less costly, yet both tend to disappoint at times.

1. most likely 

2. assume nothing - verify - but if it is it would not be a solution 

3. ha ... now way Jose 

4.  Hum ... me thinks I would have already moved on. 

5.  Not my job ... I have better more productive things to focus my time, attention and energy on. 

All that said - I would not have a need for said product.

It has been my opionion & proven true that it will be #1. Could tell you a long story about the website Placester. Would sell you the moon & then it never works with your IDX. But you're not really supposed to be interested in that!

I stay away from multi-purpose sites such as you mentioned since I would not use all those functions. Why pay for things you don't need? If they can't even keep their demo site functioning, why would I trust them with mine?

I will ignore the company.  If their demo site is hosed, so will be their product.
