I am considering a position as a dental sales consultant with a company that has some exciting new products.
I am a seasoned sales professional, with a medical sales background, so dental is new to me.
This company is offering a straight commission compensation program. No salary, and not even a "draw" against future commissions.
The long term opportunities are great, but short term, I will starve.
They asked me yesterday, how many dental offices can I get my foot in the door with their "lead in" product on a weekly basis? It seems to me that "they" should be telling me what they expect. I have no idea how many offices a day will see me.
My question is on average how many dentists per day would you expect to speak with me? I come from a heavy cold calling background so making the visits isn't a concern, however you can only visit so many per day due to drive time, waiting time etc.
