Sales Teams

I have another side project for work. I need to come up with the right amount of ADR's for each AE.


I'm having meetings with the higher ups to get the metrics that I will need to go off of, but I am curious to know what other companies are doing.


How many SDR's, BDR's, and ADR's are supporting each AE at the company you work for?

Currently 1:7-1:8, which is way too high. Should be 1:4

Awesome. Thanks BlueJays2591. What is the reasoning behind the 1:4 ratio? Sorry for all the newb questions. lol

I think 4 is a manageable ratio. 7-8 gets a little messy and some AEs will always feel left out. The higher the ratio, the more you will have to explain why some AEs don't have as good of coverage as others. Usually a simple explanation, but it's always easier to not have to answer it in the first place.

No worries. Ask any questions you have. This is the place to do so. There is a wealth of knowledge on this forum.ย

Start with Booking/AE's quotas and close percentages and make a waterfall for how many opps based on your average deal size you need to hit that. Then take your company's historical BDR metrics (touch to demo, etc.) and determine how many reps you need. Happy to help further.ย

That's wicked. Thanks PowerDialer. I'm going to be chatting with the higher ups to get all the metrics later this week. So this is very helpful too.ย 

I also have to create the bonus structure for the ADR's. Would love to pick your brain on that if I could.ย
