2019 Compensation Models for Subscription Sales (Abridged)

Every sales leader we speak to across the industry asks us what the emerging best practices are around compensation for sellers as they pivot to selling more subscription offers.

It is one of our industry’s truisms that compensation is the greatest lever that a company has to drive salespeople’s behaviors. So, it’s not surprising that this is often the first place that leaders go as they look to change the focus and priorities of their sellers.

To identify some of the emerging trends for compensation in the subscription-based technology industry, TSIA conducted a survey in June and July of 2019 to find out what models and practices are being adopted and which ones have a high correlation to higher-than-average growth rates, win rates, and quota achievement.
