    Been developing a software that creates and manages citations. For launch we will have 60 sources. We will be also adding 20-30 new sources per month. We also plan to be able to manage social media and coupon updates in future versions.

    My team has been discussing doing an affiliate program. We have a sales team in place to do fine with out it. I'm just wondering if there is interested for an affiliate program or interested in a white label for such a product?

    Hi,

    Are you looking at a one-time fee for the software, or monthly rental? Do you have a price point in mind yet?

    I'd be interested in knowing how far along the road you've got with the coding, too. I have a lot of SEO clients who want help managing their local listings and so far have been sending them off to other services.

    Oh, and is this software that's run in Windows or is it based on your server?

    SpookSeo there will be a one time fee with a low monthly charge. We our just finishing beta and should be live for selling withing 1-2 weeks at the longest.
    The good thing is we add new sources it will update those as well. With no additional charge to the customers.

    You will have all the account information in one spot.
    It is windows software that runs on the machine. Where also almost done with coding for it to run on a mac as well.

    Also it will be charged per location. We will have wholesale for the more locations that you have.

    Iwould like to see under the hood. What are you calling citations? Business directory listings? Does it build non directory citations, without a link back to your site?

    Retail price is $299 one-time setup fee, then $19.95/month thereafter. No contracts. Bulk pricing is available as well as the ability to whitelabel.

    The code is based from another project that didnt pan out back in 2002. We recycled the code and refocused its purpose in 2010. Collectively we have over 50,000 hours invested in the project.

    The software was specifically intended to serve as a solution to that exact problem.

    The software is fully operational in Windows XP/Vista/7. It has been extensively tested and runs without errors. We have a Mac and Linux client developed and functional but not well tested. As we are still in beta, we do not yet have a scheduled release date for the Mac/Linux client.

    THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I NEED. I think. This is what I need:

    1) A bot or program that continuously updates me whenever a post is made about me or my company on ANY website. Google, Yelp, YahooLocal, Urbanspoon, whatever.
    2) As-it-happens updates - I want to be able to see when someone posts something about my company within a minute of it going live.
    3) Multi-use function. I need to set this up for 20 different locations.

    Please let me know if this is what you're creating. I may very well be your first customer.

    Google alerts already does that.

    MagicSubmitter has a awesome citation module, and you can export data. It does not have a manager perse where you can continue to update but you can harvest more and create even more citations. And I'm referring to citations as business listings for maps.

    This thread was started as a poll to gauge the interest for an affiliate or white label program to sell the tool. :D

    In response to your statement, we do have some overlapping functions with MS however, please note that we also have some very unique functions not offered by any other tool.
