The paper "Sales Team Structure, Roles And Rewards - company is located in Queensland" is a good example of a marketing case study. This business report will present a sales team, its structure, roles and rewards that the company should consider. The sales team structure will reflect suitable numbers of staff, their geographic location, their responsibilities, and remuneration packages, such as bonuses, different incentives, perks, awards, cost reduction incentives, and profit-sharing. The report will also present a distribution model, current salaries in the technology industry including external and internal roles and web-based structures.
The company is located in Queensland. Every company must establish its own sales team that undertakes the sale of products. My sales team will have representatives who will perform different roles. The team will include; sales support staffs, sales operation staffs, sales development representatives, account executive representatives, and market response representatives. Each of these team members will be assigned specific roles and responsibilities to help catapult the organization to a new level. The roles and responsibilities of sales support staff, sales operations, sales development reps, account executive reps, and marketing response include; Sales support staffs (35) Sales support staffs will be located in most cities in Australia, such as Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia, Northern Territory, and Tasmania.
They will: Engage in administrative reporting together with assistant sales professionals Make efficient utilization of the CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system of support (Zeng, Joseph, and David, 2003, p. 20) Identify and aid sales professionals to implement the Selling Process Model Main clients’ contacts- represent Consumer Value and company proposition Offer shared consumer feasibility assessment, execution plan, and solution design Establish improvement charter and goals, individual deliverables as well as the channel or direct sales objectives.

They will have offices in different cities in Australia and New Zealand, such as Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia, Northern Territory, and Tasmania. The main role of account executive representatives will be closing deals for the company (Philip and Keller, 2006, p. 90). They will work all the deals, identify buyers, and assist with their requirements. Some of the other major responsibilities will include; Re-qualifying the lead (potential client) Assessing what the lead requires Performing web representations and personal demos Addressing concerns in case they appear Negotiating deals Closing deals Marketing Response Representatives (23) Marketing Response Representatives will perform their duties from Queensland because most of their duties will not require moving from one place to another in search of clients.
Their key duties are equivalent to those of sales development representatives, such as getting qualified leads to account executives (Nguyen and Mutum 2012, p. 23). Nevertheless, they will have other roles. The company is growing and therefore it requires a vibrant marketing structure.
