The Why is the secret to getting in & getting the sale

Medical sales reps are often great at talking about their products with respect to “The How” and “The What.” However, it’s “The Why” that will get you in the door and gain a commitment for an evaluation or get you the order. In this episode, I discuss the power of “The Why” and how to apply it in medical or high-stakes selling.

Why you should fear the customer, not the competition

Medical sales representatives are often advised to target the competition. As a result they fear competitors might have better products and closer relationships with accounts. If you’re in medical sales, the competition isn’t your problem…It’s the customer! I tell you why in this short video and what you should do to address it.



During the last year, medical sales representatives have sought new ways to engage and sell to accounts and customers. Social media platforms like LinkedIn are an effective way of doing this, but….

Too many medical sales reps violate “the unwritten rules” of social media engagement, turning-off customers and missing opportunities. The good news is this is easily fixed! In this episode, the how-to’s and how-not-to’s for using LinkedIn and other platforms to engage with doctors, dentists, and other HCPs and stakeholders is discussed. You can jump on board now, or you can wait and play catch-up later.
