There are two ways to structure a pay-per-meeting sales development agreement. The first is to pay for meetings that have been held by spending weekly or monthly invoices for held meetings. The second way is to purchase a bucket of meetings at the beginning of the engagement, of which the sales development agency needs to fulfill those purchased meetings in a specified period of time. PPMs typically have a higher CPM (cost per meeting) because they are guaranteed to be qualified and helpful.
