Have you ever been blindsided by someone in one of your accounts…who you may not even know…who is suddenly working against you and your sales efforts at that account? In this episode of The Medical Sales Guru Podcast, medical sales speaker Mace Horoff shares the story of a situation that he found himself in, and discusses how he managed to save the business.
Many medical sales professionals develop great friendships with their healthcare customers, and there are certainly many benefits. But it is not uncommon to find sales representatives who hesitate to sell to their friends out of the fear of harming the friendship. This is a dangerous misconception and it can harm your business AND your friendship. Listen to this episode of the Medical Sales Guru Podcast as Mace Horoff describes his own experience with the problem and how it changed when a customer/friend told it “like it is.”
Understanding the real reasons why your customers buy will dispel many of the standard excuses we frequently hear when they don’t.

In this edition of The Medical Sales Guru Podcast, Mace Horoff discusses the results of a retail buying survey to help you understand what your healthcare customers really want when selecting products and services.

Your healthcare customers demand attention to detail from the vendors with whom they do business, but there is one thing you MUST do if you want to maximize your sales results and meet their expectations. Do you know what it is? In this edition of The Medical Sales Guru Podcast, Mace Horoff describes an essential habit that can separate the true medical sales professionals from the wannabe’s.
You might have been told you have beautiful eyes, but your healthcare provider customers and prospects don’t give a darn about your I’s! Don’t take it personally…this is a common mistake that so many medical sales reps repeat day in and day out and they are doing little to differentiate themselves from their competitors. In this edition of the Medical Sales Guru Podcast, Mace Horoff discusses why you need to break this sales-killing habit if you’re guilty.
You’ve been to training. You know your medical, dental, or pharmaceutical product or service inside and out. You have rehearsed and perfected the sales presentation and you feel that you deliver it perfectly. However, you’re not closing many sales with healthcare professionals. What’s wrong? Maybe it’s what’s in your head and if you want to move forward with your product or service, you need to fix this first.
I get frequent calls from medical sales people wanting my advice on how to ask for additional territory, additional inventory or equipment, additional sales support personnel, and other requests to management. The key to getting what you want is amazingly simple, but it’s going to take some work on your part. Listen to the podcast to learn the secrets of getting your company, your boss and support staff to give you what you want.
Successful medical sales professionals are focused on their business. They commit to doing the right stuff, day after day. But if you don’t take care of yourself and the people in your life, you could pay a huge price. In this edition of the Medical Sales Guru Podcast, Mace talks about the importance of work-life balance and his own experience with ignoring it early in his career.
