Sales commission for magazine reps
Hello My name is Renee Smith and I have worked as an account representative for several magazines. It sounds like this person is trying to take you for your inexperience. I may have gotten a draw against my commissions but never received a salary and the commissions that this sales representative is looking for. I was also considered one of the best in my area. I receive and have received a 20% commission on my new accounts and repeat customers as long as I serviced my accounts. The residual is common in the business. You are right if you pay your sales representative what they are looking for you will have a hard time making it. You need to check this persons references very carefully. I would suggest that you look for another representative.
