At CommissionCrowd, we are committed to achieving results and in recent weeks the company has been achieving just that. In the last few weeks, we have seen our freelance sales representative membership grow rapidly and we were recently awarded for 'Overall Innovation For Sales' at the Sales Innovation Expo in London - Europe's largest sales expo!
We are now casting our hand over individual industries in order to stimulate positive partnerships between sales agents and companies. In this case. we are looking for agents and principals who operate within the Wholesale industry and are looking to form global working partnerships.

Benefits Of Working With Independent Sales Agents In The Wholesale Industries:
Freelance sales agents benefit from having a vast range of contacts in their portfolios that are not restricted by employment to one company - meaning they can bring these contacts to anyone they work with.
Self-employed sales agents can help your company open doors to new business by introducing you to their valuable existing networks of contacts that in some cases, have been built over many years working in this space.
What type of companies can benefit from building an external sales force?
Companies in the Wholesale industry who wish to connect with freelance, commission-based sales representatives who can grow their presence, extend their market reach and enter new territories.
Companies with products and services they wish to sell into the Wholesale industry.
The wholesale industry is one of the few industries that has managed to score "above-average" growth in the last decade after the recession. It is forecast to continue making strong gains over the next decade. The revenue in the industry grew by 60% in the last decade.
In the United States, it is said that there are 330,000 companies which generate over $7trillion dollars annually - lucrative.
Some of the challenges that the industry will have to circumnavigate whilst protecting it's revenues include:
- Downward Margin Pressure
- Increasing Competition
- Growth of Technology
- Changing Customer Demands
- Reducing Time To Revenue
- Rising Fuel Prices
- Manufacturers who are also competition by way of cutting out wholesalers
There is much to look forward to and much to prepare for. We believe that our agents and the companies they represent can be part of a process that dents the impact that these challenges have on the companies working in the industry.
