Launches lucrative affiliate program with lifetime revenue stream for partners

NEW YORK--(Business Wire)--UniversalBusinessListing.Org has introduced a new low-cost tool for businesses that increases their ability to be found on Search Engines, Online Yellow Pages, City Guides, Industry Directories and 411 Directory Assistance.
UBL is a Search and Directory industry initiative that allows businesses to enter their listing data for a small fee in one place from where it is then distributed to all major US listing outlets. Businesses can update their listing as often as they like and the data is distributed electronically to the search sites.
Thousands of businesses have already found that having accurate and detailed listings submitted to these sites is a critical factor in results rankings when consumers search the major Directories and Search Engines.
"UBL is a simple inexpensive solution for businesses, marketers and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) agencies that have known the importance of this activity but have faced a cumbersome and inefficient process across the dozens of important outlets," said UBL President, Chris Travers.
Data collected by UniversalBusinessListing.Org is held in escrow by a committee from the Search and Directory Industry, and is made freely available to all authorized Directories. The data will not otherwise be sold, and UBL will not be offering any other services so that it does not compete with the industry it serves. UBL is a member of SEMPO, the Yellow Pages Association and the Association of Directory Marketing.
UBL also announced its Affiliate program which will share 40% of the revenue from the service charges for the lifetime of each referred account. Businesses or their representatives pay $30 for the initial sign-up and $15 annual renewal charge.
Affiliate networks, Certified Marketing Representatives and advertising agencies are already embracing the opportunity that enables a self-serve model for their clients. "UBL is a valuable service to businesses and their marketing representatives - so we are excited to include this lucrative offer as part of our network," said Scott Parent, VP, Search and Social Media Optimization at MediaTrust.
