I'm considering working with an outside sales company with technology selling experience.
They charge 3,500 (+3% of sale) per month for 1 sales manager, and 2 sales associates working 3 days per week. They research there own leads or you can send them over leads.
What do you think? Anyone ever done anything like this?
I mean if they can sell 5 sites at 2K a piece per month seems like a decent deal to me....
I'd love to hear some feedback from people that have worked with this type of a company.
Not sure I understand the rates. They are charging $3500/month? Or 3% of sales they bring in? 5x2k-3500=6500 or 45% to them, not 3%.
If it's 3% and they produce - that's insanely great. If it's 45% of sales, that's considerable overhead. It still may be worth it if you suck at marketing, and you can still produce 2k sites for $1100 profitably...
I would work with a provision based system. 3% isn't enough to motivate them to hire quality sales staff. That motivates them to hire some school kids that knows nothing about customer care or selling.
