I have a meeting next week with a small firm that does ad consulting within my target market. It's likely that we're going to strike a deal on having them broker my sponsorship program and other online ad space. What percentage for their cut?

Are they going to be supplying any technology? Are they going to handle all advertiser contact, or is this more of a finder's cut?

In my mind, 15% seems like a fair figure if they're just supplying the advertisers, going up to 30-35% depending on how much more they handle. Or maybe 40-50% for initial buys, without residuals. (No data, just gut figures here.)

We think alike.

Basically, I see them as outside sales staff. I'd prefer to just work directly with them and encourage them to handle the same clients year after year. I handle all of the ad delivery in-house. They'd handle contacts, creative, etc. I like the guy that runs it, very pro ...and he knows how I like to work.

That alone is worth 20-25% IMO. Possibly more if they are taking any financial responsibility. (your payment is not dependent on their billing/receivables)

Just got back... we set up a 25% agency discount, they do all the client contact, creative, BILLING, AND will handle all issues between the client and me, such as placement, ad types & sizes, renewals. Sweet!

Awesome!

Sounds like you worked that one, nice outcome. Was it much of a haggling session?

No, we knew that this was a good opportunity for both firms. This fellow had done some freelance ad sales for me 3 years ago and knows I like to operate as a wholesaler.
