Frequently-Asked Questions 

HSMN can offer you two excellent options, depending upon your situation:

 If you have an immediate need for Independent Reps, your best option is to download the RepFinder 2 app for iPhone and iPad from the Apple App Store (Android version coming soon). With RepFinder 2, a medical manufacturer can identify, evaluate and connect with qualified ISRs and Distributors across the USA - much more quickly and efficiently than traditional recruiting, and at a tiny fraction of the cost. RepFinder 2 profiles provide detailed information about each Rep, for example, Company Description, primary Call Points, Special Expertise and Product Lines carried (currently as well as past experience). Of course, detailed contact information is also provided, with in-app text message, Email and phone capability. RepFinder's most important feature is the service itself: our experienced team will review your opportunity in advance with some of the best Reps in the business - the candidate profiles you receive in the app are those of Reps who have already expressed interest in talking with you. HSMN membership is NOT required. Downloading the app, submitting your search to the Rep network and reviewing profiles of interested candidates are absolutely free of charge. A small fee is charged only to obtain contact info for each Rep you choose to contact.

 If your need for Independent Reps is not urgent, HSMN also offers a less direct option: you may use our Independent Sales Representatives and Distributors Forum to post your product line opportunity. A basic individual HSMN membership is all that's required. Many ISRs and Distributors visit the forum regularly, and if your opportunity catches the eye of an appropriately-qualified Rep, they will get in touch with you. It will likely take a bit longer to find your Reps this way, compared to using RepFinder 2, but if you have some time this method will work for you.
