I am considering adding another feature for Directory Members.

It is a referral based system (like an affiliate program)

Each Directory member will be given a link (url) that they can supply to potential members. If someone clicks the link the member is credited with a referral if the person upgrades to a Premium Listing.

In turn the Directory Member that referred the new member will receive a $10 credit!

These credits can be applied to a Premium Directory upgrade for themselves or once the the accumulated balance exceeds $50 they can receive a payment.

I haven't worked out all the details - however, I wanted to get your feedback?

Phil, the FRN directory is without a doubt a valuable advertising resource and I strongly attest to that, my question is why do you continue to give it away ?

Not that I don't appreciate the free service but when I look at sites like servenow.com and what they charge for a listing I see a lot of lost revenue for you. When the FRN was in it's infancy it was a good promotion tool to have free listings, but now ?

I would have no problem paying a reasonable fee for the listing, and the reason I never went for the premium is because there's no competing listings in my area, so I don't see it as helping with additional exposure.

This may be an unpopular view, but I think having all directory listings paid instead of free would be justifiable, and would help weed out the nutcases that start a fugitive recovery agency in their own mind after watching an episode of DTBH.

Unpopular or not, I agree.

I like the concept - however, as you know not many are willing to pay the price to upgrade to Premium.

I was thinking of making a Standard Listing a small annual fee of $10 - $25

The benefits of having a Premium Listing certainly out weigh those of a Standard Listing, yet having to pay something would certain stop many of the false listings from being added.

Phil,

This is your forum and far be it from me to tell you how to operate it, but as an example, I came here not looking for work (check my intro) but I did get a premium listing when you had some family issues. Since then I can't tell you right off how much work has come my way but it far outweighs what I paid for the listing. To get an exact total would take more time than I have right now. I've also made many friends all over the country when they would call me for help. I see your point but the price for a premium listing is nothin compared to the money I've made because of that listing. Just wanted to throw that in there.

And a paid for listing will weed out the wanna bes and fly-by-nighters in a hurry.
