Last week's survey

In the last week's survey , we asked -  What is the most effective and equitable way to renumerate a sales rep?


  •  In order to create interest, staggered commission structure seems to work best for us. Anything under 60% target, the sales person gets no commissions. At 80% he gets 8%, at 100%, 10% etc, topping out at 150% with a 15% commission. At these levels of sales you are making profits and are able to share them equitably with your sales team. It certainly gets them off their backsides.
  • The best sales person is the one who works on straight commission. The problem then is that they are not interested in follow up. The other problem is finding people within this very diversified industry with product knowledge. Under the law you have to pay the minimum wage of $15.68/hour to any employee which is about double what the the average sign owner in Australia is earning for his 100 hour week. Anybody who is any good will want to earn minimum $50000 per year plus a car plus expenses. So it costs $100000/year to find out that it was all a waste of time and money anyway. I have just employed a sales person on the basic wage above plus car and expenses and 10% on top of gross profit. Again it is a logistic nightmare and terribly time consuming in paying a so called sales person who runs around selling $100 deals. Or the ones that tell you that business is tight and they can't pull a deal.
  • I am the owner and the rep - it's tough that way but I don't have staffing problems. People can be your best asset + your worst liability. Recruitment of the right individuals is so important.
  • Skilled and knowledgeable sales reps are rare in the sign industry.You have to find a good person who wants to make a career of the industry.Once you get them and invest the two years at least that it takes to get a return you want to keep them. Performance based pay is essential but they have to love the industry first and foremost.
  • Having trained and employed countless reps and sales professionals over 30 years I feel that this role should be performance based only. Thats why sales people can earn the big bucks if they work hard and persistently with a fair remuneration scheme.(Fair on the company and the individual) A base salary is a must because comm only means they have no real loyalty and don't feel the need to "take direction" from a sales manager. Your brand and reputation is at stake if you pay comm only to reps as it is essentially their business not yours. Base salary to be based on enough in a bad month just to eat baked beans and feed the kids, bit like the dole. Commission should be based on a set percentage budgeted and affordable to allow a minimum 20% net profit before tax for the business. Also commission calculation is AFTER the sales base salary has been earned. Sales target is based on a set territory which may be a geographic or industry type territory or even a "major account". New sales people need a minimum of 3 months to get to target. This should be borne in mind when budgeting. I always built in an "over target" commission" which stretched the sales person so when they performed over 150% of target the commission rate at least doubled! It is not a bad idea also to add a long term bonus scheme into the equation. The top third of your sales team will over perform but are easy to steal or start their own business so hooking them into an annual bonus based on profitability of the company (they don't get to see the books, don't worry) but if the company as a whole does well, then everyone that contributed and went above and beyond should have a Xmas bonus. If they leave before the bonus date, no bonus is payable.
  • Do not have a rep but feel the only way to be equitable would be a base salary plus a sales bonus. This method, however, has one downfall in that a pushy rep can give a company a poor reputation and needs to be carefully monitored.
  •  In this industry there is no way I would have a sales rep, its too easy for them to leave start up a company and take away clients, it is a common practice and I think that this possibilty far outweighs the good points.
