Pioneer Newspapers

Pioneer Newspapers implemented a competition to help their sales force produce high revenue numbers. The competition was based on the number of business listings sold in a direct head to head competition between the Pioneer Newpapers and on the rep to rep level. Over half of the papers hit their stretch goals and 2 sales reps hit 8 accounts on the week. They sold over 100 listings and made $88K in 5 days. Currently they have made over $350K in revenue and are figuring out how they can produce more.
