Get Smart with FinSmart E-Learning for Investors


We have a habit to be unorganized and casual about how we spend our  money, but what if we realise the potential of our hard earn money and make it earn for us, sounds like I am cracking a joke, right? Well! I am not because recently Finsafe have released an e-learning module named FinSmart to provide a scalable learning solution on personal wealth management.

Bangalore, India, April 20th 2016.

Finsafe India Private Limited has launched an e-learning module providing comprehensive information regarding personal wealth management. The 2 hour long module named FinSmart is aimed at people who want to make the most of their disposable income. It’s an excellent option, rather than just saving money and earning literally nothing out of it, learning and understanding different way to invest money opens up windows for better chances of ROI.

FinSmart covers basics of investment and concepts like inflation, compounding and risk in great detail. Investment tools such as mutual funds, debt instruments, insurance and pension, as well as factors affecting them are described in depth. Users also gain from a comprehensive financial planner, a model portfolio and the facility for making online investments.

FinSmart is an initiative of Mrin Agarwal, who won the CNBC Grand Jury Award for work done towards Financial Inclusion & Education in 2015. Mrin is also the co-founder of Womantra, a training program aimed at enhancing financial awareness among women. Womantra has trained more than 5000 people across 40 corporates across India over the last 2.5 years. The training sessions conducted by Womantra brought out that most young professionals in India were not prepared to achieve their financial aspirations and further highlighted the critical need to raise financial awareness and inclusion.

Finsafe was created with the purpose of being a knowledge repository that simplifies financial information and empowers people to create wealth. “In a surging economy like India’s, it is crucial that individuals are informed to take effective action to improve overall financial well-being and avoid monetary distress.” says Mrin Agarwal. A Standard & Poor’s Financial Services LLC survey has found that more than 70% of Indians fare badly in financial literacy.

Finsafe’s efforts converge towards building a more financially inclusive future and FinStart is designed to address the investor awareness gap. FinStart is among the first of its kind opportunities for Indians to learn all about wealth management and investment at the place and pace of their choice.

5 Ways to Make Your Website a Lead Generation Machine!


Like just about everyone else who’s forked over a fair sized chunk of their year’s marketing budget to achieve a killer online presence, you’re looking forward to a rush of new sales, right? 

Bad news: it isn’t going to happen. And that doesn’t mean your website isn’t good – it’s more likely because your website’s been left to go it alone. 

The simple truth is that for most businesses, a website is a sales tool, not a sales vehicle. So if you want to dramatically boost sales and see your website as an ideal place to find new prospects, you need to incorporate the same techniques used in face-to-face selling to make them convert. That, of course, begins with prospect follow up.

About 80% of the sales initiated through website contact are made after several contacts have been made. Why? Because people rarely visit a website and immediately buy (unless it’s an e-commerce site), so if you don’t maintain ongoing contact you’ll miss out on a significant amount of potential new business. Don’t let that happen – make the most of every selling opportunity by offering your site visitors information of value so they will tell you who they are in order to get it. Case studies, white papers, check lists, guides and e-publications encourage visitors to come back regularly looking for fresh content – ask them to identify themselves and you can actually notify them when that new content becomes available, along with whatever else you’d care to promote. Once you’ve established the contact, follow up with more of the information they’re looking for and your chances of getting them to buy will be far greater. Here’s how to begin: 

 

__and_cents1

Credibility = Trust 
The more useful and relevant information you provide to prospects, the more belief they will have that your business can be trusted. By offering credible information that delivers value, you demonstrate that you know what you’re talking about. As a result, site visitors will be willing to provide you with their email addresses so you can give them even more – they may even fill out short surveys to tell you what they really want. Before you know it, Presto! A brand new prospect list is born.

Playing With Emotions 
With every message you send to your new list, you should emphasize the “want” your product will satisfy. Saving money? Saving Time? Adding convenience? Remember that people buy first because they want and second because they need, so your messages need to address both the emotional and the tangible.

 

Building Copyright Value

Building Value 
Each time you contact your prospect the value of your “offer” should grow. It might be a limited time bonus, special discount or something else you know your prospect will appreciate. By limiting the time available to act, you work to push your prospect toward making a buying decision. 

Making it Real 
Once you’ve hit the emotional element of decision-making, be sure to focus just as pointedly on the practical. Give prospects sound, logical reasons to buy, based on facts. Pinpoint the results they will see, the savings they will realize or the efficiencies they’ll gain. Be specific and use examples – pie in the sky just isn’t credible.

Positive Reinforcement 
Testimonials in the form of case studies work well to attract prospects with similar “pain” to your customers. Because, if you can eliminate your customers’ pain, it stands to reason you can do wonders for your prospects’, too. 

Now – take a good hard look at your website. Does it offer value? Does it give prospects an opportunity to ask you for more? Does it give you an opportunity to learn about them? If it doesn’t, shouldn’t you be doing something about it? 
Knowledge is power. Make it work for your business.
