Hi everyone,

I wanted to share my experience so far with being a Protect America affiliate. On the one hand I feel like I should give it more time. On the other hand, if you read my full experience at http://bit.ly/2oQ3V6f, you will probably agree with me that I've given it enough time.

The good thing is that I got approved to be an affiliate/dealer of SafeStreets who is authorized with ADT instead. I just had my training yesterday and I have been very impressed with how they are handling everything. I can still sell Protect America if I want, for those who want a cheaper product. I guess you get what you pay for, huh?

I worked for ADT for about 3 months (last November through this January) and didn't like being under a micro-manager. Very impressed with the infrastructure and high quality of ADT though. SafeStreets allows me to be my own boss and work it how I see fit. Commissions are higher. Much more flexible things I can offer to sell too. And how I can give discounts/specials to entice new customers.

Anyway, I'm learning a lot. I'm very thankful for all the support, help and training I have received at WA and at home with my beautiful partner in life. I'm looking forward to bigger and better things as I've sought to reinvent myself at age 51 lol.

All the best!

Tim

I love gumby, "Well any how, I'm learning a lot here at Wealthy Affiliate and I'm thankful." You really took me there with you!

Your girlfriend is beautiful and you too as a blonde, lol! Your girlfriend has some serious competition.

But you have nothing on gumby, lol! Nothing. Haha!

Thanks for sharing your experience with that P.A. product.

I don't know anything about that company or product but what they said to you about not being able to track cookies via live chat seems reasonable to me, and it does make sense that they would verify leads before crediting them. ~Jude

The cookie could only be tracked if you, as the test user, had clicked on your own valid/real affiliate link to go to a landing page, without being logged in to the PA site at the time.

After that it is possible to track the ID code. But not so if a visitor goes directly to Live Chat without having previously clicked on your affiliate link because there would be no code to track.

For example, if I visit your web page and click through on your affiliate link and visit the PA website and then go to live chat to ask more questions, then, yes, the tracking should occur and I should be considered your lead.

But if I visit your site and do not click on your affiliate link and decide instead to use Google search to get more information, then go from the search engine to use the company's Live Chat, I would not be tracked as your lead because I did not click on your affiliate link while visiting your site. ~Jude

I went on live chat after clicking on my link though. So maybe what happened is the person in live chat decided not to count me as a real lead after our conversation.

The real problem (I felt) was that my contact at P. A. said No live chat sales would be credited to me. I asked to speak to the manager about it and to this moment haven't been able to.

The cuffs remind me when my sister got married, I gave my Bro. in law and sis a set for their wedding gift ;) Well a couple of hours into their Honeymoon I get a call from my Bro in law asking where the keys to the cuffs were. Funny some how sis got cuffed to the headboard, needless to say I took my sweet time taking them the keys ;) The joy of memories!

An authorized reseller of ADT. They actually hired me I think. But I'm my own boss. :)
