I admit, a little controversial title. But that is how I (as a more technical person) feel the task that is ahead of me for which I would appreciate the kind advice of the onstartup community.
I built this product (available as a saas subscription) that fills a unique opportunity in the market. Based on some google ads testing and monitoring interest with people that subscribed, I believe some interesting sales can be made.
My questions are:
How to find sales people that can use their network in their respective territory to sell subscriptions? How to get them interested?
What would be a good sales commission agreement? As this project is currently entirely self funded, I cannot afford to 'hire' people for the job. So the 'pay' should be entirely based on sales commission.
To get some rough idea what we are talking about, the product sells for 150 - 450 euro /month /site. Onsite licenses are also available and are to be negotiated on a case by case basis. Our current conservative estimation is that a typical customer has 4,5 months of subscription.
Any advice is welcome. If you have interest yourself, send me a private message (fransden at gmail) and I’ll send you more info on the product.
