Like many company owners, Kip Lee, owner of The Window Man, in Savannah, Ga., is not a fan of draws. He advises paying salespeople up front. Putting money in their pocket as soon as it's in yours, rather than dispersing it as a series of draws, "keeps the hunters hunting" (i.e., selling), Lee says. In addition, "that way they're not trying to manage the job to get you to install it as quickly as possible" so they can get the remainder of their commission. "You sit down with salespeople and they prove to you with photos and their estimates that they sold it at a proper price," Lee says, then you write a check.

Lee recalls his own days as a salesperson when "mystery Friday" would arrive. Salespeople were never completely sure how much their check was going to be for, and they often ended up disappointed. Then "they burn through leads because they're mad at the company," Lee says.
