“ The Foundation Corps of Executives ”
Bio-Logic Aqua Technologies seeks individuals with excellent sales backgrounds to purchase businesses as Independent Sales Consultants in exclusive territories around the country. Assigned territories generally consist of the area in and around a city, or region of a state. Consultants would represent Nature’s Tears EyeMist, and other products as introduced. The program is called the “ The Foundation Corps of Executives .” The company is confident that this buy-in program could develop into lucrative businesses for the Consultants.
Duties consist of (1) developing new sales accounts, (2) monitoring existing large accounts and (3) conducting promotional programs.
“New accounts” are compensated on a straight commission basis. Since the potential markets are myriad, this category is limited only by the Consultant’s energy and creativity. “Monitoring” includes making sure products are on the shelf and advantageously displayed, noting when stores are sold out, obtaining and reporting feedback, and demonstrating correct product application. Consultants are paid a salary for monitoring. “Promotional programs” may involve public appearances on the company’s behalf, in-store demonstrations, and activities such as running mall kiosks and conducting sales parties. Consultants are paid a salary for some promotional activities, while others are compensated through re-sale of product purchased by the Consultant.
Candidates must have resided within the assigned region for at least one year immediately prior to hiring. The position may start out as a second, part-time job but the Consultant must be prepared to go full-time within one-year.
