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.)
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.
