Model 1: Retainer + Commission|
The normal model we operate with our clients is on a retainer + commission model. Technology product can have long sales cycles of many months or years. Human nature is such that with commission only, sales people will opt for the low hanging fruit. It is extremely difficult to maintain commitment from your sales team when there is no income and commission may be months or years away. The retainer model provides a modest income for the sales person and provides the incentive and motivation to persevere in the long-haul to win you business.
A common concern from clients is visibility of results when paying a retainer. We provide regular updates on our progress to give visibility of what results you are getting from your retainer. This will involve weekly progress reports, involvement in your sales pipeline calls and population of your CRM database if required.
Model 2: Commission only|
Occassionally we accept clients on a commission only basis. The things we look for from you are clear product differentiation and that we trust your leadership team. Technology sales are complex and will require support from your organisation as the sale progresses. We are investing our time, effort and money to win you sales and need confidence that you are also prepared to support us where necessary to win the sale. As we are taking a risk representing you, we typically expect our commission payments to be in the region of 40-60% of the sale value.
Model 3: Consulting Fee|
Occassionally we accept engagements on a short-term or retained consulting basis. We support your sales team on account entry strategies, positioning and comptetive analysis.
