Learn Sales In Pharma Company
Rahul on his sales experience with various companies revealed that Pharma is the only industry in which he never thought to work. But then, how he had entered into this industry? (Find out in the Podcast)
According to Rahul, there are two ways of doing business in Pharmaceutical. One is a traditional way of doing business where a medical representative visits the doctor, informs the doctor about products and align himself with the doctor to gain trust. The second is to allure the doctors with some sort of gift or promotional product.
But his organisation does not support the second way of doing business. He believed that the right way to do business is a traditional one. In this way, businesses in Pharma possess longevity and tend to stay longer. He also stated that this is the basics to do any business.
Similarly, to do the right business in Pharma is to gain the trust of the doctors as well as the patients. This is only possible if you do the business in a traditional way. Furthermore, Rahul also shares a glimpse of his day-to-day role in his Pharma company where he manages the 900 hospitals. He also disclosed a structured way to manage such a large scale.
Apart from this, he also shared some quirky facts about himself during the session. In addition, he suggested a smart way to make sales in Insurance companies.
So, stay hooked!
Not only this, but Rahul also revealed a top-secret of selling businesses just by following a broad equation, i.e,
No. of people who sells * No. of calls that they make = Amount of Sales
Social Selling Index
Besides this, Rahul explained the importance of having a good Social Selling Index. Social Selling Index is a LinkedIn formula that defines how much you are engaged with the audience. It depends on how well you are connected with peers, connecting with the right people, using LinkedIn in a proper manner & your activity on the feed. The higher the value of an index, the higher the chances of getting reach & engagement.
Hope this helps you out in your Sales journey!!
