Oldsmar, Florida (PressExposure) June 15, 2009 -- For Click First Services LLC, an organization dedicated to helping consumers protect themselves from fraud and deception, the creation of The Consumer Advocate Network was a "perfect fit" says founder Jim Merrick. "Consumer fraud costs us all money" says Merrick, "so what we've done is create an environment that not only enables consumers to find the best local businesses, but to interact with the business and people associated with it before they purchase or invest". The process is really very simple. When you join The Consumer Advocate Network you are really empowering yourself to create and develop your own business network within our network, says Merrick. Members create their own listing, share personal references, upload customer testimonials and then manage information, contacts, and interaction with site visitors from their own home page.
With fraud and deception an ever present danger for consumers, Click First Services is betting that consumers will not only pay more for products and services if they know they are buying from people and businesses they can trust, but they will then buy additional products and services as well. Consumer surveys and research conducted by Click First Services indicates they may be right. According to Merrick, when you join the network, everybody wins; consumers gain value purchasing products and services from people they can trust and businesses benefit from selling more products and services.
With renowned pitchman and shareholder Billy Mays leading a national media campaign to educate consumers and encourage them to "Click First" before they purchase or invest, I think it will be very hard for any legitimate business to justify not listing themselves, says Merrick, especially right now in our early stages of development. Free is a hard price to beat.
