For the past 2.5 years I've been working on Heritage Law Marketing, a business promoting services of attorneys from different cultural backgrounds. So for example services of Iranian lawyers to Iranians around the world, Latino lawyers to Latinos, French lawyers to French people, etc. We make money by selling listing subscriptions to attorneys.
The development phase is now completed and I'm working on marketing the listings. I want to ask your opinion on one of the ways I'm considering to go about it. Here are three links that will give you a better picture of the business (I promise the links are relevant to the topic): HeritageLawMarketin.com (business managing all the website), IranianLawyers.com (example of a website where we sell the listing), short blog post (explaining how Heritage Law Marketing has come along).
I'm considering whether or not to put these on affiliate marketing websites and give a percentage of the sales to marketers. What are your thoughts? Do you think affiliates will generally be discouraged since after-all these are just premium directory listing? Or do you think they'd be interested in it? I've had a great rate of retention rate with the lawyers that're already listed because they're actually getting clients from our websites so I know we have a great product. I'm just not sure how affiliates are going to perceive it.
