    I'm trying to build an SEO sales floor (telemarketers selling SEO), but have no idea as to how to buy decent leads, and what type of salaries + commission to provide sales people.

    I'm great at doing the actual SEO, but have no experience in how the sales part of it is setup.

    Anyone out there with any experience in this?

    Its really hard one. I would better advice you to start off selling your services at forums ( bhw) and then you can take it further up.

    First of all, select your target market... it is not the same to sell to small businesses than to global corporations or to national large businesses.

    Once you know what you want to target (and once you know you can deliver results) then price your services according to all of the possible expenditures + company profit + director salaries.

    In regards of sales, you can do it as you wish, there are tons of ways to go about this, but certainly, you will only get "decent" sales people if you are willing to pay a set monthly fee + LARGE bonuses.

    Anyways, best of luck with it all.

    (Forgot to say, if you suck at sales, you are never going to be able to put a great sales team together, if you don't lead them they will get lost - if you don't want to get involved with direct sales, get a sales director and give him/her some shares in the company)

    There is really a huge market waiting out there for them to find something like the offer that you have in mind. But what you need to do, before anything else, is to look at products or services similar to what you are planning to offer, so you can have a concrete basis on what to do with that deal.

    IMO SEO telemarketing is to saturated. The office I use to work at received ~5 calls a day from various SEO call centers looking "to help make us visible to the search engines" and all sorts of other futile pitches.
