Commission-Only Sales Associate

Whiteboard Animation Studio is looking for a commission-only sales person for our animation production studios www.WhiteboardAnimation.com and www.ideaMachineStudio.com.

We tripled in size in 2013 and doubled in 2014. We are looking to double again in 2015. To help us reach that goal we need one commissioned sales person. In our 4 year, history as the market leader we have had 300+ clients one third of whom are Fortune 500 companies. Our main product has been Whiteboard Animation, however a quarter of our projects involve other kinds of animation. We have just opened up two new studios/products which we expect will be just as successful. One is ideaMachine Studio.

At 8% sales commission, a contractor would be projected to earn between $30,000-$80,000 annually. If the work is good, a salaried position would be offered with commission and benefits. Our average sale is $15,000. At one sale a week, commissionable pay would equal $60,000 by the end of the year. We will pay a draw of $1,000 for the first four weeks and $800 a week for the preceeding nine weeks to help the associate get started.

The sales associate will find leads on the internet through methods like:
- Contacting the clients of our competitiors
- Contacting other departments within previous client companies (i.e Starbucks, AETNA, Exxon etc.)
- Contacting other companies similar to the clients we have already worked with
- Contacting digital marketing agencies. etc.
