Recruiting Partners for Content Creation

0 replies
I developed a fantasy football-related application which helps users prepare for their fantasy football drafts. The application's usefulness depends on having very accurate player and team information. As most fantasy players know things are very hectic in the days leading up to the season.

I am a 1-man shop so it is impossible for me to manage all aspects of the application myself and keep up with player status changes and such. So my idea is to recruit one website for each NFL team (maybe a popular forum or blog) and make them an offer: They maintain player information about their team through my application, including things like:

  • Depth Charts
  • Player Status (suspensions, being cut, etc)
  • Injuries
This data would be fed into the application to provide users with the data they needs for their draft. In return, I would link back to the 'partner' website from within the application itself. So if a user were to view the Vikings current depth chart, they'd see a link to my Viking parter, be it a text link or small button banner of some sort.

So a few questions:

  • Are there any similar arrangements in existence today which I would possibly model this on?
  • Would this be a fair trade of services? Should I also require a link back to my site?
  • Ultimately I want to charge for some features, but would it be ill-advised to charge for features which are provided by these 'partner' sites?
Thanks for any advice.
