How to Find and Keep a Good Salesperson?
January 10, 2013 2:38 PM Subscribe
How do I find a salesperson? How do I pay them? What kind of freedom do I give them? How can I make it worth their while so it can be a long term relationship? I believe there are people out there interesting in helping me, but I've never been able to figure out how to find them. One man bands do everything but seem to burn out faster, and I don't want to do that. I need help.

I am an idea person, and I am the person who does the work. But I don't seem to be that good in the middle - at going out and meeting people, or knowing who to meet or where to meet them. I mean, I know that conferences, joining groups, attending workshops is where to meet people. And I know that social networking, direct mail and free promotional giveaways helps tell people about products and services. But I would like someone else do the work of drawing those potential customers while I focus on what I like. Do I look for students? Out of work sales people? Sales people willing to moonlight? Someone wanting to be part of my vision?
