I'm looking at getting my friend, (yes I know about working with friends!) who is in sales already to pay him on a commission only based percentage for SEO contracts.

I'm trying to work out what a good percentage would be? I was thinking 15% for the lifetime of the client, which can add up to a lot if the client stays for at least 2 years.

$1000/month contract = $1800/year for sales person = $3600 / 2 years = 10x clients = $18,000 year.

$2000/month contract = $3600/year for sales person = $7200 / 2 years = 10x clients = $36,000 year.

note he's not doing this full time and he's only doing Sales nothing else. 15% might not sound like much at first but overtime he's not doing any work but receiving residual income.

is 15% to high or reasonable?

what do you think?

If that is what he agrees to then it is fair.

Yes if he agrees but I'm wondering about any typical rates that people in here offer?

In this industry, you won't find any typical rates. International contractors and newbies might charge $10 an hour, seasoned pros as much as $500 an hour.


Edit: Nevermind- just reread your post. You aren't offering to pay for SEO work, just sales. That really has nothing to do with SEO at all... it's a sales commission.

I realize there are no typical rates for Sales commissions too but I'm hoping a few people can pitch in with what they offer for referals?
