An Introduction

Ever wonder how sales compensation works? What makes a sales compensation plan effective? The strategic objective is simple: Pay sellers for sales results. Yet, most incentive plans seem overly complex and confusing. Why is that? Additionally, each job seems to have its own unique design. Why is that? Fortunately, while most sales compensation plans seem unique and complex, they share easy-to-understand best design practices. Once you understand these common principles, it’s easy to understand how best-in-class plans function.
