Are you a responsible and effective salesperson who would like to earn
significant commission selling our products directly to targeted
Paiboon Publishing and Word in the Hand™ Incorporated have
successfully been selling our Thai-English, English-Thai software
dictionaries as retail internet download and CD-ROM products,
and now we would like to find a salesperson who can research, locate,
and sell into specific market segments for the product.
In particular, we would like to find a long-term resident of Bangkok
(or any other region which has potential to generate significant
revenue) who will take the product directly to venues likely to order
significant quantities of the product, such as:
The sky's the limit, since the venues are up to your own creative
talent and networking.

Why Word in the Hand?
Word in the Hand is still the only Thai-English, English-Thai software
dictionary with the Search-by-Sound™
feature that makes it ideally suited to native English speakers who
are learning the Thai language. With large, crisp fonts and everyday
vocabulary from one of Thailand's most popular paper dictionaries from
Paiboon Publishing (a dictionary which still sells in the thousands
per year and which holds an impressive sales rank on
amazon.com), our software dictionary is ideally suited for workers and
students who have recently arrived in the country.
We chose a retail price that gives you ample freedom to negotiate
quantity discount arrangements with plenty of commission left over for
yourself, making it an ideal line item for a successful
Specifically, we're looking for people who wish to:
- choose venues,
- introduce and demonstrate the product to the venue (e.g. its HR
- stock the product (as necessary: one golden master software copy
may be sufficient) and maintain stock at the venues (including any
- collect payment from the venues, and
- return payment minus commission to Word in the Hand Incorporated.
You may pursue any venue except for direct sales on the web. Part of
your job is to come up with creative venues.
Customization of the product for a given venue is possible, but your
first job will be to try to sell the product as is. A venue must
purchase a large quantity of the product, and possibly pay engineering
fees, to justify modifications. Changes to the vocabulary
(e.g. adding custom terms for a given venue) are less onerous than
changes to the program itself, but in the interest of making maximum
sales per time spent, we would like to avoid this if at all
We will agree on a quantity discount and a commission schedule which
is likely to be sliding based on total revenue. We can discuss
exclusivity to territories; it depends on how many salespeople we find
and how much work they commit to perform in their territories.
