Re-knocking door to door sales


#1

How do you pay a sales rep that knocks an area that has already been knocked and have lots of customers in already? Do I just say they can only get new customers? Or do I say you can knock the doors of the current customers but they get a different commission than a newer customer? I feel like it’s easier to set up an appointment with a current customer by calling them instead of knocking on their door.

Are you going through a neighborhood for the 2nd time? If so how long has it been since you knocked there previously


#3

It’s been one year


#4

What commission are you paying now? Not sure you would want to change it just because it has been a year


#5

$11/hour plus 2.5% commission or just 20% commission only (whichever is higher per pay period). Though I don’t have any returning sales reps


#6

In your experience what hours are they working and how much in sales


#7

All sales. M-f some Saturday’s. 3:30pm- 8pm. Around 20-30 hours a week par time


#8

Id base the pay off how much revenue they bring in. Look back at what the potential or average from past history has been.

Either co e uo with an hourlyor even better commissioned base system.

I’m against commision for window cleaner but a sales position could be beneficial for both of you.


#9

Not to side rial this too much but why are you agains commission for a cleaner?


#10

That makes sense. Thanks

Depending on what region of the US you live in that seems to be a good pay
rate. If he is a good salesman 20% can add up to a good paycheck. I assume
you provide his expenses?

Seen it personally for different companies encourage poor performance, quick not quaility.

Greatly increases skipped work.


#13

Yes, I do provide his expenses.
