USING LINKEDIN & OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA IN MEDICAL SALES

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.

What do doctors & HCPs “really” want & expect from salespeople?

New medical sales representatives frequently ask this important question when selling to doctors and other healthcare professionals: What do doctors want and expect?” There’s two answers. The first set of answers are the ones they will tell you. The second set of answers are often unspoken, but just as important as the first…maybe even more so. Both set’s of answers are discussed in this podcast episode. Whether you’re an emerging medical sales rep or a medical sales professional who has been working a territory for decades, it’s good to know the answers to this question. Please let me know your thoughts in the comments below…and while you’re here, please subscibe to the channel if you find value. Thanks!

Focus on the patient and sell more!

Medical sales reps often forget why they do what they do. Sure, you sell to earn a commission, but ultimately it’s to make a difference for the patient or those that treat patients. If you stay focused that “the patient always comes first,” you’ll elevate yourself and your products in your customers’ eyes.

Overcoming Customers’ Perception of Your Youth & Inexperience

If you’re new to medical sales and on the young side of the age curve, a challenge might be establishing credibility. In fact, establishing creditability is not necessarily a function of age (pay attention you older and more experienced reps!). This is a common concern. I get asked about it often. And it IS a REAL ISSUE.

So, have a seat, turn up the volume and listen as I discuss this important subject.

You can also listen on iTunes. Just search “The Medical Sales Guru Podcast.” BTW, it would be really cool and most appreciated if you could leave a review, so Thank You!
