How Adam Colbert Built a Commission-Only Sales Team For His SEO Agency

For anyone that’s used cold calling to generate or attempt to generate clients, you’ll know how time consuming it is. And that, despite how successful you become with it, you’re limited by the hours you have in the day.

The only way to scale it past that is by hiring people.

That’s what Adam Colbert has done. Only quitting his corporate job 2 months ago, over the last year Adam went from struggling to kickstart his SEO agency, to hiring 4 commission-only sales people that hit the phones all day bringing in and closing leads.

In this episode, we cover:

  • How to hire rockstar sales people
  • How much to pay your sales team
  • Adam’s biggest mistakes when first hiring for a sales position
  • How Adam generated 6 leads on the day of our interview, from cold email
