What's a "Sales Rep Agency" anyway?

An Independent Sales Rep Agency, also known as Manufacturer’s Reps, ISR, or simply “Sales Reps” is an independent contractor paid on a commission basis to represent your service or product lines in a specific region or in the entire USA. The Rep Agency’s line cards usually list several related, non-competitive products from manufacturers, distributors, or importers.

A rep’s primary skill is the ability to work face-to-face with buyers, demoing products, conducting training, solving problems and converting leads to sales. Below you find some facts provided by a MANA survey.
