About SMTD

Our objective is to partner with you to accelerate sales, develop long term customer relationships, and thwart competitive encroachments.
We are a talented group of Contract Marketing Professionals, Certified Instructional Designers, technical artists, writers, and terrific training facilitators.
We have sold and marketed products in pharma, bio-pharma, medical software, medical diagnostics, medical devices, and more. We have been sales reps, marketing directors, sales managers, national sales managers, and training directors.
We have launched new products, new marketing processes, and new sales models. We have started our own businesses, doing everything from raising capital to winning our very first customer. We have hired ad agencies and vendors. By the way, we’ve fired them, too.
We’ve re-organized sales departments to make them more efficient so sales acceleration can occur more quickly. New job descriptions, comp plans, annual reviews, and organizational reporting structure are part of what we do.
We look forward to partnering with you and your team to drive sales acceleration and build long-term customer relationships.
