The future in sales!

We believe independent agents and external sales channels are the future of the sales industry.

More than ever before, top sales professionals are creating and growing their own personal brand. They use social media and online resources to promote their business and grow their own list of clients and contacts who follow both the agents and the companies they represent.

Sales agents are a natural next step in the growing trend of people who are experts in a marketplace or industry working on a self employed basis to offer their skills and experience to businesses.

The benefits

The benefits to the sales agents are: Increased rewards, flexibility, being their own boss and making their own business decisions. Many self employed agents enjoy being able to focus just on selling, which is their forte, and not having to do other tasks that employed sales people are required to do.

The benefits for businesses working with sales agents are: They only pay for results. Agents work on a commission only basis and do not receive a salary. This doesn’t mean it’s a cheap option, top sales people enjoy top rewards, but business principals only pay for closed sales. Businesses also get the benefits of sales agents having their own list of customers and contacts, and they often have access to highly desired potential customers.

What is an sales agent?

The most simplistic explanation of a sales agent is: a company or individual that sells products or services on behalf of another business.

A traditional sales agent is often a self employed sales person that prospects for new customers, and makes sales, by door knocking and face to face meetings.

The modern sales agent can have a much broader definition. They can be a sales individual, or a sales agency company, that uses a combination of visiting prospects, telesales, and online resources, to find new contacts and sell the sales offers of the businesses that they work with.

Sales agents can also be working within an industry, for example as a consultant, and sell products and services related to their sector on behalf of other businesses.

Think about financial advisors. They often sell services to their own customers that are provided by companies they have a relationship with, and they receive commission for those sales.

No matter how small the niche market sector that you work within, there will be opportunities to benefit as a sales agent or a business principal.
