Do a customer account study and identify preference of a Online or a Catalogue Sales model. Gain sales force support by highlighting the benefits of Online Sales channelkey enablers in providing knowledge transition and sales support to the customers. Todays consumers live multi-dimensional, multi-platform lives and their buying behaviours reflect that same complex dynamic. Discuss new roles and responsibilities and performance incentives for the Sales-force which would come up as a result of online sales channel . Also highlight profitability and operational efficiencies as a result of the move. Design new commission / reward schemes for a successful move of a customer from catalogue to online mode brought about by a sales rep . Reward schemes for new customer acquisition needs to be in place. Eg :Macys Store

Ken Sutton Course of action to make Sales force more receptive to Online Sales Channel:
Sales force informed about the companys move and acquaint them with the benefits it would bring about to the company and to them. Sales force involved actively in improving the websites functional aspects ,given requisite information about new selling process. Discuss alternative reward/commission schemes and remove their skepticism that they would not be required post the move. Discuss new roles/responsibilities coming their way post the move- increased focus on new customer acquisition, exploring cross sell up sell opportunities to new customers.

All of these are necessary for the sales force to endorse the online channel effectively to the customers.
