Salesman pay?


I’m new to this and wasn’t sure how I should pay my salesman I have a friend who wants to do commercial sales but I’m not sure how to pay him? He wants to be invested in the business and possibly have this be his future career. He knows I don’t have Capitol to pay premium commission. So how should I pay him? And what percentage of a Rusidual worked for you guys? Thanks!

Try the search under “salesman” and other words on that subject and you will have what you are looking for :slight_smile:

commission 100%, give him 2 months of the jobs he brings in

I worked as a storefront window cleaning sales representatives. Big company. Nation wide. Three months of what ever they were charged. Ten percent on residential and commercial work.

On second thought I think it was only one month.

He felt so dirty after working for them he had to take a 3 year bath in antiseptic :slight_smile:


If a guy gets payed 10% on everything he sells he’s going to need about half a million dollars in sales every year, because a good salesman will expect to earn at least $50,000 a year. Can you handle that kind of growth? If he’s any good that’s what he’ll bring in. If you can’t keep up he will probably quit!

Nice Hat Ron!

We are altering our commision structure quite a bit this year. In a dream world you could have 100% commsioned sales people with no problems. But in reality it simply doesn’t work long term, there needs to be some sort of base salary so they dont:

Quit on bad months
Under price accounts just to get a sale

I would always recommend a one month trial basis as well.

Please keep the thread on track! Lol thanks

This Video got me a 250,000 contract…

I was doing 12 stores, after the video I got 47 that lead to 88 more. That video is old…I have literally hundreds like it…100’ssssss

We have one FT storefront salesperson and we pay him $500 per week base and 100% commission on the first month’s revenue. 10% residential and 5% large commercial or new construction. Plus, if he picks up $1,000 in monthly commercial program work we pay him a bonus of 10% of one month’s revenue of all the active stores he picked up that are in the system with a $500 monthly cap (makes for a car payment or something).
