Some are not "very expensive" where it would fall under Dior or Versace price points.howierocket said:I am talking like the little shops that handle small very premium designers like some of us here, like BelHeir deals with. Small to medium somewhat independent boutiques that have really nice stuff but most of it will be very elite and expensive.
Greg, may be its different here or a different situation, but we have never paid more then 10% to reps. that have represented the line at trade shows and followed up with accounts.Comin'OutSwingin said:Sales reps normally expect about 15% of the sales that they generate.
This is if they also represent other lines.
If they are exclusive to your company, then more would be expected.
You're right Greg,Comin'OutSwingin said:I think it's a little high, also. I'm just quoting what I've found in my research.
For clarification, this is more for new lines or new "manufacturers". Reps would like more from companies that aren't established because they don't know if this is a product that will be around for a while or not.
More estabished companies or brands may be able to pay between 8-10%.
Remember, since sales reps are not employees, but independent contractors, the fees are always negotiable!
We call it a Spec Sheet ( i think its the same thing ).NoPromoClothing said:sorry for my ignorance, but what does a "line sheet" consist of normally for T shirt designers?
