A Sales Agent could Work
for Your Sales Team

Could a sales agent be an alternative to traditional field sales representatives and telesales callers for your business?

Sales agents, also called commercial agents or manufacturers representatives, work on a self employed basis or may ow their own agency. You only pay them commission for the sales they close. They're not a cheap option as some business owners think, the best agents expect a substantial commission and can earn far more than employed sales people, especially as they pay all their own day to day expenses. But the risk to business owners is far less when selling through independent sales agents because you only pay for results. 

How to Sell Through a Sales Agent

A sales agent can work in many different ways. Field sales agents sell in face to face meetings. The prospect leads may be provided by the business principal or the agent may have their own prospecting system or sell to their existing contacts. 

Independent agents can also sell by telephone, internet or email marketing. You can also find independent agents that act as introducers or lead generators and provide qualified prospects for businesses to contact or to use to feed their sales agents closing the sales. Sales introducers and lead generators usually work on a commission only basis for leads that convert to sales or on a fixed fee per lead supplied. 

SMEs can also act as sales agents. They add the products and services from other businesses to their own products and sell to their customers. This creates another income stream and they use their existing sales infrastructure to make the sales.
