Smartphone brands are looking for a way to increase their sales, especially in retail business where competition getting tough day by day. Therefore, companies are trying to do their best to increase the sales, for this reason technology stores are becoming important channels for the smartphone brands. These kinds of stores are also suitable for brand which wants to increase their sales in a short period of time. In these stores, dealer’s recommendation has becoming one of the key factors to affect consumer purchase decision in Turkey. The aim of our study is examine promoter incentive affect to the smartphone sales in technology chain stores. Promoters become key elements for the brands. So far, most of brands are allocate their brand promoters in technology stores to go one-step further from the other brands and affect consumer who get in the shop and looking for device. Our key question is if promoter’s sales performance increases for the specific brand with an incentive given by the dealer. We also want to search if there is an increase in specific brand smartphone sales with these incentives given to the sales promoters between all brands in these technology stores. Our expectation of promoter’s sales incentive system has positive affect to the sales. We finalize our study with a causal research designed to give proof for incentive affect with one of the global brand smartphone sales in Teknosa, which is the biggest chain store in Turkey.
