Great article. This is a very important topic. For those who want intense training on the subject Please visit the Graphic Communications Institute at Cal Poly web site for an upcoming workshop on Niche Vertical Markets. This is limited to only 20 participants due to its highly interactive design.

Timely and true. I would love to hear how companies are retooling comp plans and commissions when multiple reps are involved in the account, i.e., the generalist miner and the specialist closer.
