Paul, Kurt and Tim recently co-authored an eBook called “The 7 Deadly Sins to Avoid in Your Next Sales Incentive.” The purpose was to help sales managers who are struggling to maximize their effort and results when they use sales incentives. In the podcast, we recap the most common sins committed by sales managers and discuss ways of avoiding them.

  1. Spread goals evenly
  2. Give a huge prize to the top performer
  3. Must be above quota to earn
  4. We’ll figure it out behind the scenes
  5. Under-quota performers can’t be winners
  6. It’s all about the Benjamins

We hope you enjoy the discussion and recommend you download the eBook for reference.
