I am grateful for Adsense, but if my epc doesn't come up pretty darn soon, I am going to have to hire a salesperson to go after advertisers directly, just like we used to do in the old days. It would be a good idea to branch out anyway.
Does anyone have sales people that do this? Not just via email but via phone? I am wondering how to compensate a sales person? Commission and salary? Just commission? I'd think in this economy, finding decent help wouldn't be too hard.
