    What is your definition of a "Lead"
    I was always under the impression that an online lead is when a person makes a call or fills out a form with their information and the organization paying the affiliate pays them for that "lead."

    Does anyone have another version of a "lead" because I may be off on my perception.

    Thanks

    Sounds right.

    Hi

    It can also be based on;

    - a download,
    - installation of a free trial,
    - putting credit card info in to a free trial,
    - Activation of an account after signing up for something

    Cheers

    We use SAS lead tracking for any time someone tries to order something that requires a manual shipping quote. Anything that might go LTL freight for example automatically generates a lead.

    We then have a chance to contact our freight broker, talk to the customer about special requirements (lift gate, residential delivery, etc). This type of sale can take a week or two to close, but with the lead we can trace the it back to the affiliate and enter a manual commission when the sale completes.

    Silly cow, you know very well that a lead is a rope used to guide a cow where you want her. I guess that is why they call you 2sillycows.
