This paper studies the consequences of sales contests versus quota systems when territories have imbalanced sales potential. How do the optimal sales, efforts of salespeople, and profits vary with territory imbalance in a sales contest and how do these change if compensation is based upon quotas?

A sales territory consists of a group of consumers or a geographical area assigned to a particular salesperson. The area allocated to the salesperson contains the present and the potential consumers of the organization.
