100% Commission Sales Peeps

I've seen a few comp threads recently and want to connect with those on 100% commission structures.


Would you rather Base + Comm or 100% comm but high %?

Transitioning from base to 100% commision right now. Scared for my life but that means the formula is working.

Definitely scary but in my experience worth it.

Any update on your situation? Would love to hear how it’s been going for you and how you feel about going to 100% after actually doing it.

The most I ever made was with a job that was 100% commission. It was awesome while it lasted, but they changed the structure a few times and it got worse every time.

When I was evaluating if it was right for me most of the feedback I received from people said the most they made was at 100% commission companies as well.

I'll go after guaranteed money but if you are working for a company where the product sells itself then I wouldn't see a problem in that.

I am thinking of trying it out while employed full time since there is only upside. 

Most 100% commission companies are either startups and you can make $$$ or companies looking for cheap labor.

Got news for you. Real estate is 100% commission and has been crazy fruitful for me. It is all about what you're willing to put into something.
