Hello i am looking for a good resource for finding self employed sales people. i am just about to launch my bussiness and need commision only sales people. i live in the uk. can any body recommend the best way to find such people or a site like this one that is relevent to the uk.
Well, I can't help you in the UK. However, maybe explaining my experience in the USA will give you some ideas.
I meet a lot of strong salespeople at networking events. Let people know at the networking event what type of salesperson you are looking for. They might know of someone or can keep their eyes open for someone who would be a good fit for your business.
I'm afraid that Suzanne's advice is the best I've got too.
Unfortunately, we live in a world where people feel entitled. Entitled to get paid the 75-80K a year salaries without having to do the work. If we had the money to pay sales people like that, we wouldn't need the salespeople, would we?
My best advice for this is to find people who believe in your product to sell it. If you can bring them on board so that they become part of the company, they'll work harder at doing the building... Just a thought.
