[Jonathan Gould] "Does this sound like something you would be willing to try?"

It might work super well for some, but I'm not sure it's anything we would try in our shop.

I'm not really much a fan of commission-based anything. If I were going to hire someone to do sales, I'd personally much rather be a stand-up employer and actually put someone on staff (with salary and benefits), rather than basically hiring a "freelance" sales person and pay them an exorbitant commission.

I don't know about anyone else in here, but here we certainly don't have enough of a profit margin to give anyone a 20% cut of anything... unless we were to seriously jack up our rates. And then our clients wouldn't buy that... we're already the most expensive game in town and it's hard enough to get clients to pony up the dough for what we do charge. Actually, we don't have so much trouble with getting clients, agreeing to our rates, or landing jobs... we're pretty blessed to keep a full production schedule. The only kink is sometimes getting them to find their checkbooks after a job is done... we have a few clients that need a nudge in that direction now and then.
