Some of the highest earning professionals inany industry are independent sales consultants working on a freelancebasis for clients. Freelance sales consultants represent companies thatsell products and services ranging from manufactured goods to homeimprovement services, and just about everything in between.
Securingclients to represent is easy, simply because freelance salesconsultants generally supply all the tools of the trade such astransportation, communications requirements, and computer equipmentthat may be needed to acquire customers and conduct business–not tomention the fact that many freelance sales consultants also generatetheir own sales leads.
Or, put differently, clients have little, ifanything, to lose by having freelance sales consultants representingtheir business. Remuneration for products or services sold is always byway of commission, which will range between 10 and 25 percent of thetotal sales value.
