A person will be successful in this job for only a short time if they are located in a geographical area that is proliferated with LARGE farms. There is no residual income and no salary , so if you want to continue to make good money, you must be able to make large sales regularly. There is no leads generated to assist, strictly cold-calling. Much of the US has already been exposed to sales reps attempting to market the product by means of cold-calling/direct sales. The product is great for what it does in theory, but you are limited with whom you can sell to due to the lack of certification on this product (farmers primarily). The compensation or commission for sales is good, but the price of the product is way over the top which makes for hard sales, period. This job description states there are no upfront costs for product, which is true, but there will be significant costs associated with vehicle expenses, i.e. fuel, maintenance costs, hotel accommodations once you’ve exhausted the options close to home and have to travel 2+ hours to get to the target area. Farmers being the primary target audience, operate on a set schedule, so you will be required to get in front of farmers early in the morning before they get started (6am or better) cold-calling on them or late in the evening (8pm or later) after a long day of work in the fields. Tough audience to sell to, they are very skeptical of cold-call sales and it doesn’t help that for a “national” sales company, their national marketing is almost non-existent except for when it comes to recruiting new sales reps.
Compensation structure, no benefits, commission only, no residual income, high product cost, no UL listing
