Please Tell Potentially Interested Self-Employed Sales Agents About Your Company

We are a group of experienced senior marketing professional and our team comprises of both full time and freelancers. We provide a comprehensive range of online marketing services and have built long-term relationships with our clients through our ethos, key strengths and values:

Our services cover three main areas of marketing:

1. Digital Online Marketing

2. Web Design & Build

3. Virtual Marketing

Based in Bracknell, Berkshire, and serving the Thames Valley, south-east England and London areas, we’ve been marketing companies in a huge variety of industries for more than a quarter of a decade. When we start working with our clients, we know very quickly exactly what sort of marketing campaign will achieve the best results for their business, because we have done it time and time again. Achieving impressive results for our clients over the years, many of whom have gone on to build international businesses or who have realised impressive returns through mergers and acquisitions.

Why Should Professional Self-Employed Sales Agents Choose To Work With Your Company?

As one of our valued and respected self employed sales partners you’ll have the ability to represent a company with more than a quarter of a century of experience, a multitude of happy clients and services which you can be sure will deliver success to your clients time and time again.

With our experience working with corporate organisations and local companies we know that the company size is irrelevant when you treat all companies with the same respect. The key relationships are with the individuals and you will be able to build relationships with marketing and corporate management in the knowledge that you will have a portfolio of case studies to demonstrate our ability to deliver in any environment.

How About The Sales Cycle Of Your Services?

Marketing services are usually closed within a time frame of 1-2 months however, can be longer for higher value deals. Contracts for on-going service licenses – CMS licenses, marketing automation, e-commerce, email marketing portals – are commonplace. For marketing consultancy and defined campaigns they vary between contracts and single project contracts, but the goal is and has always been to look long term to develop lasting relationships and generate on-going repeat work.

Do You Provide Your Sales Reps With Training?

We would prefer self-employed sales reps to have had experience of this market, therefor training will be based on different solutions offering the same services. Demonstrable experience of working at all levels of management from marketing management through to C-level is important to us. Business to business sales and/or consultancy will be a major advantage. We also ensure that all of our reps are provided with the materials needed to sell our services effectively. These include a large number of client testimonials and case studies which can be utilised to help close the sale.

What Type Of Self-employed Agent Is Best Suited To This Opportunity?

We employ a consultative business relationship with our clients therefore we would look to you to have the same needs based consultative sales approach. We expect to work with you during the sales cycle, being available when you need us and staying out of the way when you want to manage things. We offer recurring income for all sales, in the case of licenses where we only receive commission for a fixed period we will pay recurring income commission for the same period. It’s important therefore to be able to build and maintain strong relationships with clients to capitalise on opportunities and provide additional services.

This is not a short term solution for us and it’s very important for self-employed sales reps to know that we are looking to form long term working partnerships with you.

Please Tell Agents About Your Commission Structure And Payment Terms

Sales agents will receive varying levels of commission based on the sales mix which will vary between 10-15%. In some instances we bundle product licenses from vendors which set varying levels of commission for their products/services. Sales commissions will be paid promptly on receipt of payment by our clients. Our prices vary depending on the services we sell. A new website might sell at a price of £5,000 – £15,000; An SEO contract could be between £1,000 and £5,000 per month; an outsourced marketing contract falls in the region of £3,000 – £8,000 per month. Smaller jobs such as email marketing are priced per job and typically vary between £500 and £2,000. In many instances different services are combined to provide a cohesive marketing campaign so the order value and residual commission opportunities increase.
