The independent contractor model is going to be tough to find great sales talent who will get results for you. You can`t hold them accountable, hard to support, manage, motivate and train them. Many of them work part time. The best sales talent out there these days is looking for a great base/salary/benefits/bonus/commission. You may be better off hiring 2-5 sales professionals, versus trying to "hire" 25-50 IC`s...might get more `bang for your buck` so to speak. I may be way off, since I don`t know too many details on your particular situation. But, I hope this helps.
