Do some companies pay a lot more for this position than others? What does a top earner make in this field?

What skills should you learn to increase your salary?

It really depends. It's great to have a base salary plus commission, but a sales person primarily relies on commission (and lots of it) if they are to be successful in sales. It does not take a lot more effort to be excellent than it does to be mediocre in sales. For example saying "I just want to pay my bills" shows that maybe you should not be in sales, but rather fully employed. The percentage of extra hard work to be in the top 10 percent is minimal, and the rewards are phenominal. It takes just that little extra push, or hard work to make a huge difference, which can translate to doubling, or even tripeling your income in very few months...

So, the question is: How much do you want to make?
