Hiring and Partnering With Sub-Reps | September 25

Join us on September 25 for this MANAcast
2 PM ET, 1 PM CT, 12 PM MT, 11 AM PT

Like manufacturers, manufacturers’ representatives have a choice when it comes to creating their sales force. They can hire employees, or they can outsource the sale function to sub-reps. There’s quite a difference between these two alternatives.

On this MANAcast, we will talk about:

  • The benefits of hiring sub-reps vs. employees
  • What to look for in a sub-rep
  • Ways to find the right sub-rep
  • Setting up the agreement
  • Setting expectations
  • Training and onboarding support
  • Communications with your principals
  • Ongoing support and collaboration

Our speaker will be John McNellis, owner of McReps, Inc., a national multi-person agency with a mix of both direct and sub-reps. Current MANA member since 1976 and former MANA Board of Director.

A value of belonging to MANA is the ability to tap into the common wisdom and knowledge of your fellow members. What do other members do to resolve these challenges? This MANAcast helps you learn how.
