What are the compensation numbers for an inside sales person?

QUESTION:

In a start up company, how do you incentivize/compensate the sales force (e.g. inside sales)?  What are some of the ranges for equity, deferred compensation, and present compensation?  What are the norms in this type of industry? The company is only a few months old but is already selling nationwide.
