Scaling Your ISO With W2 Agents
With payment processing becoming more and more complex, there are huge benefits to hiring W2 sales professionals that you can train and manage. However, you must do it right if you want to create a return on the investment.
The 1099 model is still effective at scale, especially for large, national ISOs, but I have found that local ISOs and those focused on selling technology solutions struggle to make this model work.
Join me along with Ben Griefer, COO at Maverick, to discuss how ISOs can leverage W2 sales professionals to build a profitable portfolio.
If you are serious about scaling your ISO but are feeling burned out on the 1099 model or are looking for a way to take greater control over your growth objectives, this special edition of the Merchant Sales Podcast is for you.
