Sales is a crucial and on-going activity for all retail and services business, and the business work through its sales team and marketing experts to promote the market and make the sales. One of the other ways a company broadens its sales reach is to hire the services of independent sales agents. These are contractors who can work on a particular business campaign or can deliver assigned sales targets. At times businesses need to operate in broad domains, and they want new sales agents. But it is not feasible to recruit permanent sales agents on a payroll if the need is for an immediate basis only. Hiring an independent sales agent allows the business to work on flexible payment terms that are mostly sales commission.
The sales agents are highly motivated to make the sales and market a business as their wages depend on the deal they make with the clients in selling a company’s product or service.
