Yes there is still Spoken Network partners out there who make a profit selling audio books and I don't think their monthly partnership fee is too much to ask.
Remember your monthly fee covers their customer service costs, dealing on your behalf with publishers, which I'm also one, paying for your sites hosting, domain renewals, etc.
I'm also happy with their discount voucher system since I only use three of them.
I do understand that if your site don't make enough money that you might feel their monthly fee is too much, but if you do the work to market your site and write some unique content for each section, apply some SEO to your pages, etc. Then your site are supposed to make a profit within 6 months and then the whole system will run on autopilot.
The more you work on your system the more profits you are going to make, it's that simple.
Yes I do agree that's it's time they apply some new features to the system since that's long overdue. And yes it will be great to get a membership email once a month to keep us all in the loop. Maybe a monthly competition where the partner with the most sales gets a bonus will be great.
But I do understand that XSitePro are keeping the technical department very busy.
Let me know what your site URL is so that I can have a look what you can change to increase your sales.
