    Hiring a salesperson?

    I am considering hiring a commission-based salesperson to sale banner ads, sponsorships, and directory memberships. This person would only be selling within a 75 mile radius of Pensacola, FL.

    They would be selling for three sites.
    1. Community based site
    2. Local Wedding business directory
    3. Florida arts directory

    Can anyone recommend sites/books/advice for setting/paying commissions and the neccessary contracts for a salesperson.

    Thanks,
    Jamie

    I would contact a lawyer to draft the employment contracts for you... Run ads in local papers and on the Internet to get applicants, but your best bet is to find friends-of-friends who are interested in a job. Referrals usually work out much better. I would also highly recommend offering a base salary - maybe $36,000 per year or something?
