What are the main issues for the appointment of a sales consultant?
Role of the consultant. The appointment will set out the services and obligations of the consultant. They will include promotional activities as well as following up on the company’s leads and reporting on a regular basis. Set out your requirements clearly so as to avoid future argument about what the consultant’s duties are.
Fee arrangements. These will vary, and the company will usually pay a regular basic fee to the consultant plus agreed expenses and commission on sales.
Restrictions on authority. A sales consultant has a more limited role than a sales agent and will not normally have any authority to make commitments on behalf of the company.
Confidentiality. Clearly, the company needs to be sure that the consultant will keep all commercially sensitive information confidential and a clause is needed for this.
