Default Questions concerning opt in lists

I have compiled opt in lists, currently totalling around 30,000 unique addresses. My original intention was to market these myself in a business to consumer fashion, similar to bulletmail or even a scaled down cut rate version of postmaster direct. However trying to run an opt in agency is a full time job in itself-one I don't have the time or resources for.
My question...does anyone here at this board have any experiences working with postmaster direct or any other opt in brokers in an affiliate partnership? I've attempted to contact a few pm direct affiliates to see if they're happy with their partnership, but received no replies.My general impression is that the various brokers (pm direct,e-direct,e-target) split revenue on a 50/50 basis, but each name should still be worth $1-2 to the list owner on a yearly basis. Any opinions or real life experiences?

I have been an affiliate of Postmaster Direct for about 3 months, referred about 780 addys, 176 dropped out and my income shows $6.45 and possible revenue $11.85. I can't see when the income potential will begin...feeling less optimistic now...I just decided to remove their button link from my page this week. (Plus I had to host their graphic on my server.)

Christ, I hate it when my rose coloured glasses break, and reality rears it's ugly head. I'm hoping to retain full rights to my names, just using a third party broker for extra revenue. Ideally, I'm looking for a situation where I can not only use my lists for exclusive mailings, but a broker who can find advertising for 15 monthly newsletters.A company called E Target acts as both an ezine and exclusive broker, but the fact that one of their "happy clients" on their site issues the testimonial "You guys kick ***!" kinda gives me the willies.
