Sales Leadership: Compensation Strategies: Commission-only vs ...
Of all the complex business strategy decisions to deliberate, "commission-only versus salary with commissions or bonuses," is certainly the most tricky and the most important. Over twenty-plus years in business, I've heard all the debates and the pros and cons of each approach, and I have seen each approach work and fail in varying degrees.  There didn't seem much point for me to re-tread all of the same old issues on this topic, but I did think it would be helpful to uncover perspectives and insights that are already out on the web, and to bring them together in one place for review.  Albeit, these are the ... market research, surveys and trends
Compensate to Motivate Your Sales Team |
When I speak to business executives, one of the challenges I often hear is that their sales team is not doing the things they feel are most critical to the success of the company. I then ask to see their compensation plan. After a thorough read, I share my impression of the message of the compensation plan and ask if this is their intention. That’s when things get scary!

What many forget is that the blessing of sales is that a compensation plan doubles as a job description. ... market research, surveys and trends

The Need for Speed - Sales - Leads
For salespeople, this should be the best of times. After years of languishing, corporate spending finally rebounded in 2006, and analysts expect the shopping spree to continue. Yet selling is just as hard as ever and at many companies, the sales cycle--the period that starts when a lead is identified and ends when a contract is signed--has not budged at all. Thanks to increased competition and the ease of comparison shopping online, buyers are driving ever-harder bargains. And with e-mail and IM replacing phones, it's getting tougher to set up a meeting in the first place. Nonetheless, you can shorten your sales cycle if ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Managing The Dragon
The People’s Bank of China, China’s central bank, announced over the weekend that it will resume a gradual appreciation of the RMB against the U.S. dollar, and that it will manage the yuan’s exchange rate with reference to a basket of currencies, rather than pegging it to the dollar. The PBOC statement makes it clear that the currency will move only very gradually. Along with most economists, Andy Rothman, China Macro Strategist for CLSA Asia-Pacific Market, expects appreciation to return to the 5 to 7 percent pace of the 2005-2007 period. Contrary to what Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner and the politicians in ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
