My fiancee is a Speech Pathologist managing a small business, where she provides therapy to children with developmental needs. She's considering partnering with another local speech therapy provider(s) to set up an affiliate arrangement, wherein she would receive some type of referral commission for passing on quality leads. She's in a good position as her schedule is full and she doesn't have the bandwidth to help out all the families that inquire about services. Do you have any advice on a reasonable, fair compensation structure for an arrangement like this? Is there any way to accurately track her referrals, or will she simply have to trust that my partners would credit me if a lead converts? Thank you for your help! Best, Vince
