It sure sounds like a mess. I wouldn't sell there
What do you mean you had a retail business that gave you 10%?I love this kind of post. I worked in Florida when I first came here as a salesman. There was 10 salesman. Here is how we did our job. First I was given a territory that I worked and I built my own client base. I also had some dealers that I serviced at which I was paid a 4% commission.
Then I had my retail business that I made 10% commission. But I sold the job,did the take off,ran the project and collected the money. My first year I made $80,000.
I also had a company truck that I paid for the fuel but also recieved a $250.00 allowance for.
I busted my butt for this guy because he was great to work for and ran a great company. I felt like I owned my little slice of heaven and I built this area into a little gold mine for me.
I worked this area for 5 years and made up to $250,000 a year for several years. Not bad for an employee new to the game. This is where I learned the difference between a customer and a client. When you show a client that you truly care about them and there project and give 100% client satisfaction and your sales and referrals will go through the roof.
80% of my business was referrals after only one year of very hard work. To this day I still work this same area and have done work for the same clients over and over again.
So there is several ways to do this and Mike is right on his thoughts. But the key is always finding the right person for that key position. Plus let them make some money.
Here in Fla there are "products" that accompany other items which could lead to a high return.What do you mean you had a retail business that gave you 10%?
