I have a similar situation in that I am looking for a reliable place where businesses are matched up with commission-only salespeople. I'm a start-up venture, self-funded and with limited resources and so it would be great to find a website where you can source commission-only sales staff. I'd love for my website adgreement.com to be able to open an actual office if I can get the right people - some of whom might be natural leaders and be capable of managing sales teams.
It's a catch 22 situation, with the economy being so tight. People are looking for big-name employers and a guaranteed pay check, so commissions-only are not so appealing right now! If you find a website that specializes in this arena, please let us know and I will do likewise.
Does anyone have any suggestions on where to hire sales people? I need to hire some for email marketing and I have not had any luck with anyone I have hired yet. I have tried elance and odesk. I have hired a few people that either do not complete any tasks or are unsuccessful with sales.
This would be to sell our advertising and social media services. They are also to follow-up on the numerous email leads I receive daily. I just do not have the time to complete everything on my blog now and thought I would be more successful by delegating these tasks. It seems as though I am only creating more work for myself because I am not hiring the correct people.
Any suggestions would be great. I am also interested in finding sales people that might work solely on commission. These seem to be few and far between. The way I look at it is that if you can find someone that works on commission they are confident in their sales experience to make the sales. I haven't hired anyone on commission only yet but I am very interested in finding someone that would do this. Thank you so much!
