A simple yet effective approach to sales
We prefer to work with mature and experienced independent sales agents who can assure consistency and continuity of optimum sales performance during a campaign.
We work hard to build long lasting relationships with our independent sales reps and recognise that our partnership is entirely mutual. We incentivise to attract the finest sales talent and recognise that performance is not just linked to lead numbers, but also lead quality and much more besides.
Our self-employed sales partners receive structured training and coaching on an on-going basis, while recognising that you are not our employees, but important partners in our business.
What type of freelance sales professional is best suited to your opportunity?
We are looking for people who are already in a consultative sales role, working with blue chip companies up to C-Level. Someone who already has established relationships within the Finance, Pharma, Professional Services, Software/IT industry, Telecoms industry who understands either project management or the learning and development industry and is able to act as a trusted advisor, already having built a credible reputation in their field. Someone who is looking to add a highly reputable company to their portfolio of complimentary but not conflicting services.
Why should independent sales reps consider working with your company?
We recognise that although our existing sales reps are the backbone of our business, being self-employed, you require something more from the company principals that you choose to work with.
We do not believe that sales reporting and CRM management should take up lots of your time which is the reason we will be managing our remote working relationship through CommissionCrowd.

Can you touch on the sales cycle of your services briefly
From initial contact with the prospect to closing the sale usually takes between 1 to 3 days.
Sometimes a prospect will want to think about it but this should be for no more than a couple of days – more often than not on the basis they have primed the prospect suitably during the initial sales call they will make a decision there and then.
We also issue Credit Card machines so deposits can be taken immediately.
Typical clients will usually have at least 1 form of digital media installed prior to sales process commencing. In most cases this will be the large digital display screen(s). Advertising campaigns are for 12months and start from as little as £999.00 (plus a £199.00 artwork fee). There are up-sell opportunities with campaigns values selling for between £3,000-£4,000 including all applications and product placement.
Are your commission-only sales reps provided with full training and support?
We have a range of sales and marketing material available for our Sales Agent partners to use and we are constantly looking at creating new and innovative tools to aid the sales process and improve marketing communications. We will also be using CommissionCrowd to facilitate the managent of our working relationship, therefore you will have access to everything you need at your fingertips.
Full training is provided on all of our products and services along with all the support you’ll ever need from our team.
What type of self-employed sales agents are best suited to working with you?
We are looking to partner with self-starters with experience in B2B sales, consultative selling and a proven track record. However, uniquely we are also open to hearing from individuals with no prior experience in this field but who possess the desire and tenacity to succeed within a career in media sales.
Our opportunity may also be of interest to independent sales reps with an established client base who are already representing other non-competing companies and would like to offer our services to their existing clients.
What Commission structure and payment terms can successful sales reps expect?
We are offering self-employed sales reps the following options with regards to commission:
Your clients are required to pay an upfront deposit equating to a min 50% of the campaign value (this can be negotiable and often small discounts can be offered in exchange for 100% payment being made upfront) with the balance paid when their campaign goes live or at most net 30 days.
Monthly payments options are also available and are subject to direct debit/standing order being out in place.
We are offering a commission structure of 30% on all client deposits with a further 20% residual/renewal commission for the lifetime of the client’s campaign.
