Help me set a fair commission for qualified lead gen in advertising

I run a small media company with a staff of five (two people on sales, two editors, one social media person). The salespeople have a low salary, high commission salary structure, and advertising deals are generally in the low-mid 5 figure range. Our social media person is interested in getting into sales, or more specifically, getting compensated for introductions that eventually turn into sales. We're happy to accommodate her but have no idea how to structure things. [more inside]

Sales vs Advertising Illustration

Marketing vs. Sales vs. advertising vs. PR -- help me find a great illustration that breaks down the difference between mktg sales PR etc. by showing different perspectives of a guy saying he's a good lover (advertising) or women describing the guy as a good lover (PR)... it was featured in DIgg or Lifehacker or boingboing a while back but I can't find it!

Where to advertise to IT sales/marketing people?

We need to do some online advertising and PR, on a just-above-shoestring budget, directed at people responsible for selling new information technology products. The minimum for a text ad from publishers like Ziff-Davis and CMP's TechWeb seems to be well over $2,000 per insertion. We'd like to spend less than that, so maybe we're looking for more obscure publications.
