One of my overseas clients have asked me to work as a full commission base sales rep for their company in where I live and I want to take the offer so that I can do it for rainy days...
They are asking me to find leads and also help them close the deals. How much commission percentage do you think I should ask for considering the amount of work I'm asked to do?
I'm thinking 10-15 % of sales is reasonable. I've done some research online i0but they all say it depends on the industry and I don't want to scare my client by presenting the percentage that is way too high. So I'm turning to you for help!
Has anyone done something like this on your spare time? Pros and Cons you care to share with me?
Thank you so much in advance for your help!!
