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
