Tags: , , ,

For those of you out there who have worked on commission, you know how this works. Salespeople work hard to sell you items, and if you purchase items through them, then they get a certain percentage of the sale. Commission is different in every industry, in every store, and in every situation. If you go to a store where the salespeople work on commission and someone helps you, it’s important to remember who helped you. When you leave, take their business card and make a note of their name. If that salesperson is good at what they do, they’ll take notes and remember you when you come back. Now, when you come back (and this is key), ask for that salesperson to help you again. That way, their time that they spent with you before isn’t a waste and any new salesperson who helps you can’t just steal the sale from them.
