For a while now, I've been considering getting some help from an experienced web directory editor, some one that can add and edit listings to my directories, so that I can focus on promoting and maintaining these directories. I've somehow convinced myself a while back that, it was not something I could easily afford but, the truth is, I have no idea as to what kind of compensations is involved in hiring somebody like that. Are they paid by the listing, by the hour, or by some sort of block-price? Is there some sort of "editor's guild" that you go to? I'm sure @Converse can provide some answers on this.
