How to Sell Medical Products
Selling medical products can be tasking a business, but it allows you to provide an important service to your community. It is important to choose the right types of supplies to the right type of consumers. You may need to work with doctors, patients and insurance companies to make your business profitable. Someone who has worked in the medical field in the past may be more successful in choosing the supplies; however, you do still need to be able to sell products as well.
Research the market in your area to choose the best types of products to sell. It can help to specialize in specific types of supplies, such as home health supplies for elderly patients, instead of trying to supply all types of supplies in the beginning. This will cut down on the inventory you need to buy. It can help if you have a background working with a specific type of supply.
Determine how you want to sell your products. You can sell directly to doctors or you can sell directly to patients. You may choose to do a combination of both, depending on your area. You should decide if you want to sell products online or if you want to make personal contact with your customers.
Set up relationships with insurance companies if you are selling equipment that need maintenance coverage. It can be worth the extra business you will receive to work with a wide variety of insurance companies. They will set the prices they will pay for the equipment though, and you need to be sure you will still make a profit on the supplies.
Contact vendors to purchase your supplies. If you order in bulk, you may be able to save money on the product, but you do need to know how much you will sell of each product to make the savings worthwhile.
Design a website that lists the products you offer, the insurance companies you work with and a way to purchase the supplies online. Brochures and business cards are other important sells tools you need to prepare, and the design and look of these items should match your website.
Prepare a place to store your products. The storage area need to be climate-controlled and needs to be kept pest-free, due to the serious nature of the products you are selling.
Begin contacting customers and resellers to sell your products. You can set up lunch visits and product reviews with hospitals, medical organizations and individuals to have the staff get to know your company and the products you offer for sale. You should provide brochures and your Web address so they can easily refer patients as well.
