    What tips do you have for making a name for yourself, or your presence noticed at a DR.'s office?

    2 of mine:

    a) Root beer floats for the staff

    b) At an annual doctor staff outing, they always have the reps cater the event. All the areas were covered when I got to the list. We needed a presence at this guys practice, so a genius rep told me to rent the Good Humor (or like) truck. Only $150 for unlimited ice cream. Nuff said, I was golden.

    Do you have any yourself, I need more gimmicks!

    This is what our business has become-Talking clinical with a physician has to take a back seat to this crap. This is why if anyone in pharma wants to move to a device company the chances are slim because they view you as nothing but somebody that brings lunch and get sample signatures and not SELLING.

    This is an awesome gimmick and it works almost everytime!
    I provide the doc's with reprints that are relevant to their practice, know my competition, know the formulary and give them real reasons to use my product (not just pens). Yeah, it really works. Amazing, isn't it?

    I walked into an office carrying 12 krispy creme donuts without using my
    hands!! This was a big hit with the nurses.

    You don't need gimmicks...you just need to be real. Drs are not used to that...they are sick of robo-reps...be honest...tell them why you are there and why should they care. They will appreciate!
     
  11. Here's a trick that I used today! Hope it helps some of the newcomers! It's not root beer floats but it was effective!
    I was sitting at a "luncheon and learn" and a very difficult Doctor said "I won't prescribe your product because you use direct to consumer advertising". So as politely as I could I slapped the fucking taco out of his mouth and SCREAMED "that direct to consumer marketing paid for the food your fat sow nurses are grazing on goddammit!!!!!!!!!!HOW DARE YOU INSULT ME WITH YOUR ALTRUISTIC VIEWS ABOVE SOCIETY! Get the fuck out now ! And with that I kicked them out of their own lunchroom. Hope it helps!

    The begining of this thread is so funny I had to re-visit it again.

    Here's my new song tell me if you like it

    Do you ever have to poop? Eat ice cream by the scoop? Drink gin and juice with snoop? Has your kid come down with croup? Would you like a bowl of soup? When in Chicago drive the loop? Keep your chickens in a coop? Drink malt liquor on the stoop? Get your hands all full of goop? Do you want to shoot some hoop?

    That is about the funniest thing I've heard in awhile. I laughed so hard, I had to read it to my taco eating doctor boyfriend.

    You're a jerk-off. Re-prints, formulary, you're a fucking dork who wears a suit all day while you drive your catering van to each fake call. Then you pull out your gay electronic signature pad and hand it over to the fat receptionist who then takes it back into the bathroom, smears her vag juice all over the stylus pen, gives it to the doctor who sticks the stylus pen up some 80 year old man's ass then signs your stupid pad "Elmer Fud" and you actually tell them thank you as she hands back your sig pad. And on top of it all, you ask to schedule a lunch 6 months in advance, cause YOU don't have a functional brain and you have a retarded job.
