Making AV Sales

As part of its annual survey of AV integrators' compensation and benefits, InfoComm asks a series of questions about sales quotas-who's setting them, who's meeting them, and whether or not quotas are going up.

AS PART OF ITS ANNUAL SURVEY OF AV integrators' compensation and benefits, InfoComm asks a series of questions about sales quotas—who's setting them, who's meeting them, and whether or not quotas are going up. For its 2008 survey, covering 2007 sales, InfoComm found that nearly half of respondents set sales quotas, though the practice is far more prevalent at larger AV firms. This year, an additional 7 percent of companies plan to institute quotas, and of the companies that already use quotas, 56.6 percent plan to increase them—a sign AV pros expect 2008 to be a decent year.

How did InfoComm members do last year in meeting quotas? More than 68 percent said salespeople met or exceeded their benchmarks.
