Sales and Marketing firm Emora industries have recently outlined the positives of working on a commission only role. The company understands that recruits can often be put off by the lack of financial security that comes with a commission based role but want to remind both young professionals and any individuals looking to get into the industry of the unique opportunity their position offers. In a recent interview, the Managing Director Lauren Harrison outlined what she believes to be the top 3 reasons one should consider working on a commission only sales job.
Unlimited income potential
While Emora does not want to hire individuals who are money focused, they cannot deny the financial gain that can be attained from these roles. Most importantly, they emphasize that an individual earning potential is unlimited when they work purely on commission. Contracted jobs often set a capped salary that curbs how much one can earn in that role. However, sales and marketing offer the potential for high payouts depending on the number of sales someone is capable of generating per day.
Control your own success
“Failure is down to the individual,” claims Lauren Harrison the MD of Emora. While this may sound harsh at first, Emora believe this to be a strong part of the commission structure. Individuals make their success and cannot blame anyone for failure. Emora believes that this aspect of commission only sales roles set their young professionals up effectively for the reality of the entrepreneurial world and their future as successful businesspersons.
It encourages hard work
Simply put, if an individual doesn’t work, they don’t get paid. While this may seem harsh, this naturally encourages people to work hard. Emora outline that normal contracted jobs can often facilitate slacking, a trait that can be detrimental to success. The firm is certain that the hard-working nature of this role will set up young professionals for success as they can begin to understand what hard work truly entails.
Emora hopes that this recent discussion on the positives of a commission will motivate their recruits to take advantage of their position within Emora. They are also keen to contest the idea that board only roles are inferior to contracted posts and hope those looking to get into sales consider these three positives when they decide on their professional future.
