A link from a directory (as long as it is not a mirror of another site) is rated the same as a link from any other site. They have never been rated higher than other links.
How many new visitors will you get (either directly or indirectly). How many of these new visitors will buy someting on your site. Is the income from these new visitors higher than $69. Only you can answer these questions as only you know how your site is behaving [wich percentage of your visitors do by something and howmuch do they spend]. If you don't know the answers to these questions even spending $1 is to much.
