Is it normal for a company to cap one sales reps commission but not others?

Hey sorry, me again. You might have seen my previous post about my companies change in commission structure. My boss put a cap on my commission but not the two new outbound reps that were hired and have not even started yet. I guess his reasoning is that inbound, what I do, is easier and is more customer service oriented than sales because there’s less effort on my part. This doesn’t make sense to me because I have to follow the same steps the other reps do to secure the deal. The only difference is they came to me, I didn’t go find them. Is this normal for a company to do? I feel like I’m no ..read more

Coming up on my one year anniversary at my company. Merit review upcoming. It’s been chaos since I’ve been there. Changing internal tech, team size, swim Lanes, product etc. no one is close to target, including me. Anyone have some strategy on asking for the raise when the numbers aren’t there?

Opinion needed - Took a massive pay hit for Enterprise AE gig. Potential is there maybe but working 2-3x and have mostly white space. Keep going or keep looking?

Sup peeps! I recently was in a situation where I chose to leave a company where it was more lax, well known-ish, but less innovative. I chose a new company in tech and the travel is now 2x what I'm doing. I have lunch meetings 2-4 times a week, 1-2 lunch and learns on top of it per week, in person once a week, travel for team meetings that I must fly to once or twice a year, and of course training that's a week in a different state (only once). This was not, IMO, expressed that well upfront. That said, my salary is 60-70k less. I see the potential to make money but I'm doing drop offs to whit ..read more

Those clearing $200k, what does your savings/retirement look like?

We in sales are making more than the normal folk (generally speaking). I'm in a HCOL city and I see former colleagues getting promoted but also seeing crazy lifestyles like happy hours every night, nice dinners, vacations, expensive apartment rentals, equinox memberships, pets, etc. I feel like they experience lifestyle creep but little to show in planning for the future. Am I right in my assumptions or just blinded? Curious to hear about others experiences. Self: 31m, saas, never cleared 175 in AGI, ~350 NW not including home. Paychecks go to fidelity in the market other than mortgage and mo ..read more

Tried to post this recently but unfortunately didnt have the karma. Hoping now I will! I would like to preface by saying that I find it unfortunate to even feel the need to make a post asking for advice on this matter. But the reality of sales, and business in general is that its a cut throat world where we all either have been, or will be screwed over at some point. It's a reality that I accept, because there isnt another line of work I can think of where you stand a chance at living comfortably and retiring at a reasonable age without qualifications and the debt that goes along with it.

Automated Email vs Manual Email Campaign

Hey Everybody, What are your thoughts on automated emailing? Personally, I get them in my inbox all the time and it's plainly obvious. I barely read them and usually delete based on subject line alone. With that said, I own a company that sells very niche specific products to midsized industry. For this reason I've considered setting up an automated email campaign of my own. The thought process is that I can craft an email, or series of emails, that are tailored to what my prospects are looking for. On the flip side, it's sill a little generic no matter what and could possibly tarnish our bus ..read more

Like the title says, this isn’t a job posting. I’m a physical therapy and golf business owner and I’m looking for tips on how to recruit and hire multiple sales people who are great on the phone (B2C and B2B). Is it using sites like Indeed? If so, are there any keywords I should use in the posting? submitted by /u/notthebestusername12 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more
