The definition of a business development rep (BDR) is a type of inside sales rep that solely focuses on outbound prospecting. Many companies (such as Salesforce) have experienced massive revenue growth by separating sales organizations into specific roles.
Unlike quota-carrying salespeople, BDR's (Sometimes called Sales Development or Market Development Reps) don’t focus on closing business. Rather, SDRs focus on finding the opportunities for salespeople to close.
It all depends on the company you work for. It can range from an $45,000 to $80,000 with a mix of base plus commissions in your first year.
Once you get a year under your belt though, you should be aiming for $65,000+ roles with $100,000+ jobs around the corner.
