Looking for extra sales?
Who in their right mind would say NO?
But the dilemma is how to do it profitably, without spending more than the profit you generate.
- Reps? They’re expensive: recruitment, training, salary, expenses, overnight stays, holidays and sick days, and now the new pension regulations. Plus, there’s no guarantee of success.
- Advertising? Old media, new media, social media? It’s a minefield, and tough to get a return on investment these days.
- Sales agents? Self-employed sales agents working on a commission-only basis. Only charging a portion of the extra profit they bring you. No fixed overhead. No costs if they don’t sell. Cheap to recruit. Cheap to manage. Hang on… doesn’t that sound a bit more interesting?
ibd in partnership with AgentBase can bring this opportunity to you.
AgentBase helps companies to recruit and manage sales agents, and is the UK’s leading sales agent register. They have been in business for 25 years and have 10,000 UK sales agents registered with them, all looking for new lines to sell. These could be goods or services, from simple widgets to capital items, from FMCG to engineering and everything in between, from simple services to complex concepts.
There’s a hidden army of B2B sales agents out there selling to all market and industry sectors, in all areas of the UK. Some have helped catapult previously unknown brands such as Pandora, Hunter and Crocs to huge success, and work with many others that you haven’t heard of, yet.
ibd and AgentBase can help you to explore whether this is an option for you. If so, it could be the answer to your sales needs. You could have a UK-wide network of self-employed, commission-only, independent sales agents out there talking to new customers and selling more of what you produce in a matter of a few months. And it wont cost you very much to set up and manage.
