Microsoft to Offer Spiffs to Retail Salespeople Who Sell Windows Phones

Paul Thurrott:

Included in the plan are sales incentives for retail workers, aimed at getting them to finally start recommending Windows Phone as an alternative to Android and iPhone. The amount of payments are $10 to $15 per handset sold, depending on the number sold, for some handset models.

If this strategy was on the table, why didn’t Microsoft start this a year ago?
