Compensation for Sales/Growth Advisor?
I am thinking about taking a role as a growth advisor for an IT solutions firm (startup) that has quite a few Fortune 500 accounts. I would be helping them break into "mid-market" accounts with deal sizes ranging from 250K - 10 mil. Basically, I would set up their sales automation and help close deals until they find a VP of Sales and hire an actual sales team. As of now the company is composed of engineers who have leveraged their connections.
What does a typical compensation package look like for someone in this role? I am sure it varies widely.
Specifically, what is the typical commission % on gross profit?
Any feedback is welcomed and encouraged. Thanks in advance.
