What’s the most common question we’re getting about the Medical Sales Summit 2011?
It’s “Should I register as a current medical sales rep, or an aspiring rep?”
Because there are separate breakout training sessions for medical sales reps and those trying to break into the business, some of you who are “in between” categories for a variety of reasons aren’t quite sure what to choose when registering.
If that’s your question, too, because you’re in some kind of medical sales job limbo, have no fear–I have your solution in the video below:
Acting now puts an extra $100 in your pocket!

Harvey Mackay is a sales guru, master networker, best-selling author, and motivational speaker–and he runs a $100 million business on the side! Let’s just say he knows a thing or two about closing the sale–and he has a blog post I want to call your attention to: Knowing Something About Your Customer Is Just As Important As Knowing Everything About Your Product.
In his article, Harvey talks about how broadening the relationship you have with your customer can pay off in terms of future sales. Humanizing the relationship beyond strictly a business one helps you see and better meet the true needs of your customers. Harvey runs an envelope business, but the exact same principle works within medical sales (like you’ll see in this post with a similar argument from Peter Francis on personalizing your clinical lab sales.)
And if you haven’t heard already, Harvey Mackay is bringing his wisdom to the Medical Sales Summit 2011 here in Dallas this October–as our keynote speaker.
The Medical Sales Summit is a training and networking event just for sales reps and sales managers within the medical sales community. Check out the rest of our lineup of speakers and topics by clicking here.
