I feel the urge to respond here: where do you find these people? I am in
about the same situation as Chris Pitz: I have a semi-specialized
audience to my websites, have a lot of them (1 million impressions a
day), and agencies fail to properly sell advertisements (I always tell
them there are only <18 year old people on my site, yet ALL of them show
a LOT of credit-card advertisements - talk about a bad audience) ... I
have been looking for a sales person to work on a commission base, but I
always seem to end up with the wrong people... Any suggestions ?
