I have tried this in the past and have not had very good luck. anybody have a feel for what percentage a sales person should get when they are on a straight commission doing business Christmas light install sales? I was thinking 10-20%, no residual, as our average sale is 3000 and that would put 300-600 in their pocket. most of these will be cold calls and going door to door business, so I am open to suggestions.

I've tried it, but havn't had good success either. We offered 10% with residuals. But we can never get anyone to stick with it. Most people want a solid paycheck and don't want to work for a good commission check.

So I would also be open to suggestions!
