If one needs a "business model" to follow, here's the key: The patrol members are the customer.  The PL is the salesman.  If he provides a good quality product for the customer, they will come back over and over again until the product become poor quality or the salesman doesn't want to sell anymore.  Then they will go off and find another salesman to "follow".  As TampaTurtle says, take care of the customer and they will take care of you.
