I’m having trouble finding contract sales reps. Help!

priority1stpriority1st subscriber Posts: 1
I have had an ad out for nearly a month now and I am having trouble finding a contract sales rep. Actually, I would like to hire four of them, if I could get them. I did find one and I`m hoping he works out but he also sells other products related to my industry so his focus isn`t totally on my services.
Everyone always tells me to hire contract sales reps because it is less of a liability for the company but I have trouble finding reps that don`t want a base salary. From experience I have learned that many reps that receive a base salary don`t perform as well. I`m stuck in a catch 22. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

    Why not putting a request on one of the WAHM boards ? There are so many Ladie`s at home who would love the opportunity and I guarantee you that some of them give you better results than a so called professional sales person.
    BTW - I would advertise the job with a small base salary and additional commission
    Good luck !
