Drug Rep Time

How to succeed in Pharmaceutical Sales.

Master your influence.

As you might remember I promised to post the second part of the “Getting your doctor’s attention” on Sunday/Monday. I decided to wait a couple of days. The reason is that this Blog is not a monologue. It is created and meant to be an open forum where we discuss and learn from each other. You need to overcome your reservations, pick screen names (nobody knows who you are) or even stay anonymous, and place your comments. You will quickly learn that THIS IS THE ULTIMATE WAY TO GET ATTENTION. This will give you a ton of practice in the most useful success building topics. Trust me, if your comments draw attention of your peers and if you learn to contribute value to the others you will be golden.
Remember the amount of success you reach in life and the amount of wealth that you create are directly proportional to the amount of value you create for others.
The more beneficiaries you create , the more successful you will be. It is not unlike your everyday work. More value to more client/doctors =more money in your pockets.
This is a place to learn these skills.
Do you want to increase your own audience, discussion groups, learn feedback from hundreds instead of dozens, become a successful contributor to value of learning? If you like what you learn here , go to other blogs and invite people to join you here on DrugRepTime .com. Send emails with your invitations to those you want to benefit. And do it NOW.
Think about something. Many of you told your friends about this blog and invited them. How many of your friends actually came here? One, two? Do you know? Is it any different from talking to many doctors about your great products and getting no scripts?
It is well established in traditional marketing that a circle of influence of each individual is about 250 people. Will talk more about it in the future. But with the social media in place your influence through horizontal networking on the Internet can be multiples of that. So speak up to grow your own audience.
Aren’t you MASTERS OF INFLUENCE? Find what works in engaging others and you will be reach.

  2. Just select “other” for an identity and type whatever name you would like in the username. “Your Web Page” is not required.

  3. Having a screen name does not reveal your identity, but what it does do it allows you do become a reference in discussions.Say, you are a “Smart Girl”. It gives you an opportunity to see if your comments are sharp, interesting, controversial, influencial, and so on.That is what i am talking about in this posting. Now, there may be time when you said something that you do not want to own in the future. OK. it happens to the best of us, right. Change your name and become a “smart boy”. Nothing wrong with that. If everyone remain annonymous, there won’t be discussion leaders, other than myself. It is borring.Try to GROW YOUR OWN SCREEN NAME INTO A RECOGNIZABLE BRAND. How is that for a challenge? Look what happened to “Josefina” whoever that person is. I see some growing popularity and comments about her/or him? Now I want to see myself what else she/he has to say on other topics.

  4. I think we are all masters of influence to a certain degree in at least one area of our lives. However, when stepping outside of our comfort zone to get to the next realm of possibilities most of us get stopped and are afraid to take the next step when we are lacking the adequate tools/support.
