Ecommerce Sales Consultant

Ecommerce Sales Consultant (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

ProsGreat job right after college if you are looking to stay in Austin. Not the best pay, but fun gig. Also if you enjoy software/internet/SaaS you will enjoy it. Lead generation is pretty simple, and the cold calls aren't bad, especially compared to true cold calling.

ConsResponsible for monthly quota for a sales cycle of anywhere from 1 call, "first call close", 14 days after their trial, and some beat around the bush for 45 days. Also reps who have strong pipeline and many contacts usually hit quota, and are appeared as "rockstars". However, these people have just shared their contact information with everyone and overtime are reached more frequently. They set quotas so these top 10% make okay money, while the rest do not..simply because of pipeline. End of month gets too intense. The bonus structure is horrible. I had huge numbers and did not get paid at all what I should. Sales dependent on marketing for good leads, and also dependent on Volusion pricing. Which could have "waived" set up fees, gold, sign up here and downgrade here.. blah blah..

Advice to Senior ManagementVolusion is great. Leads were greatness. I would say my recommendation is to take out the "cheese". Volusion felt really, really, cheesy. Change the bonus structure up.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
