Grab the Best Financial Services Jobs 2015

The recession returns with unconvincing opportunities to accelerate the growth of listless economy in countries around the world. While economists and policy makers are busy churning out a steady and timely solution to counter the shakeout, the job sector has already tasted the odds: Firms are cutting operational costs by reducing the head count and putting a pause in new hiring in the name of efficiency drive. However, the picture is not very dark in Britain.

If recently concluded research reports are to be believed, many companies are showing a positive mark. Around 11,000 new financial services jobs have been added in the 2nd quarter this year. This is the strongest ever rate of hiring since September, 2007. Now the industry expects to hire a new average of around 10,000 people in the oncoming quarters.

Customer Service Tips 2015 – Ignore Customer Surveys Creates Unresolved Problems and Loses Clients

Customer Service Tips 2015 – Ignore Customer Surveys Creates Unresolved Problems and Loses Clients

Many businesses use customer surveys to secret shoppers to determine customer satisfaction. Yet, by not taking action specific to this customer service strategy only creates unresolved problems and loses customers.

Have you ever experienced poor to really bad service somewhere? You are given a customer survey to complete or are asked to go to the corporate website to share your terrible customer service experience. Sometimes, the survey or the website will even tell you that you will be contacted.

Then you return to the same place to give them another try. And again a terrible customer service experience happens. You return to the Internet and complete yet another survey with a response that you will be contacted.

Are you ever contacted? For many unhappy, dissatisfied customers the answer is a resounding No, absolutely not! How do you feel? Probably, quite unhappy because the lack of action by the business has now created or amplified your unresolved problem.

I was talking with a client who had this experience with a national coffee chain. He shared his poor experiences and how he not once, not twice, but three times tried this same coffee location with the same miserable results. Now he no longer patronizes this chain.

His customer loyalty value was $10.00 per week. At 52 weeks this totals $520. Also, he had purchased gift cards from this store for his employees to the annual sum of over $1,500. If you consider that his tenure as a customer is at least 5 years, his actual customer value is $10,100. Of course, the customer service person talking his weekly dollars probably only sees him as $10 a week customer if that.

Now that unresolved problem of not responding to the customer survey created a $10,000 hit to the bottom line for this national chain. This is before he tells everyone about his miserable experience. You can probably easily add another $5,000 to $10,000 of red ink to that store’s financial records.

If you want to improve customer loyalty, then remember to occasionally walk in their shoes and do not make promises that you cannot deliver or set expectations that you cannot satisfy. Take this customer service tip heart: Either react to all customer surveys or do not even bother with them because you truly do not want to upset your customers anymore than they already are.

Dealing With Your Financial Services 2015 That Have Gone Bad

Dealing With Your Financial Services 2015 That Have Gone Bad

Despite the fact that there are a number of different financial services that you can choose from, most of these have high interest rates that will make you indebted. If you have already dealt with them in the past, it is time you find a way out of your agreement with them. This is so you will be able to start saving your money.

Whether it is a credit card or other type of personal loan, you have to keep in mind that these establishments do not operate in your financial favor. This is why you have to break free from their high costs of products and services. How do you do this: by repaying the expensive balances!

If you currently owe money to a lender who is charging you high interest and fees, it is important that you take immediate action. You need to pay the balance as soon as you can. Unfortunate as it may sound, lenders do not lower their interest rates for the sake of helping their clients in paying the debt faster. This is why you need to treat these forms of financial services as a top priority. Make sure that you pay your balance and not settle the minimum amount. The reason for this is so you can avoid incurring high interest rates from overdue charges.

One of the biggest problems that many people have in terms of paying their debt though, is that they do not have the money for it. In order for you to avoid incurring high interest and having a low credit score, here are some of the things you can do:

Increase Your Income- If your company allows it, you can work overtime hours so you can earn extra money. Imagine how much you can earn for an additional 1 hour’s worth of work each day. But if your company does not give overtime pay, you can get a part-time job or a second job. Another tip is to turn a hobby of yours into an income.
Sell an Asset- The most common way you can do this is by having a garage sale. Take a look at the things inside your home. If you find a number of them which you are no longer using, you can sell them.
Reduce or Eliminate Unnecessary Expenses- Limit dining out to just twice a month instead of 4. By doing this, you will see an increase in the amount of money you get to save.
By all means, it is important that you pay off your debt as soon as possible. This will help you avoid incurring high interest on your debt as well as improve your credit score the next time you make use of financial services.

3 Simple Twitter Marketing Tips 2015 For Financial Services Professionals

3 Simple Twitter Marketing Tips 2015 For Financial Services Professionals

Twitter is here. Of course, the popular service can vanish tomorrow. However, this is not a good bet for even the most contrarian business. The question now is how do you use Twitter to reach prospects and direct them to your financial services website. The good news is that using Twitter as a financial services lead generation tool is surprisingly simple once you understand the fundamentals.

Successful online financial services professional rely on 3 core strategies to push traffic to their web site. We’ll discuss each one of these strategies and how you can use them to fill your sales pipeline.

Block Tweeting to Stay Visible in Twitter Stream

Most Twitter users follow dozens if not hundreds of other tweeters. This means that at any given moment, individual tweets are quickly pushed down and off the page. Trying to reach this person with one tweet at time will fail because that tweet has a shelf life of seconds not minutes.

You can increase your chances of being read by tweeting in blocks of 4-5 tweets at a time. Once you’ve submitted your tweets, your followers will see a easily identified block of useful tweets that captures and holds their attention. This strategy works if you schedule your tweets beforehand to cut down on the need to come up with your tweets on the fly.

Automate Your Tweets

There are a number of easy-to-use tools that make it simple to put your twitter marketing on semi-automatic. While I don’t recommend fully automating your twitter strategy, I DO think its wise to set-up a weekly automated tweets to lessen your workload and keep relevant information flowing to your audience.

A simple search on Google for “Twitter Automation” will give you a host of tools that you can consider. I also recommend considering using WordPress plugins to automatically tweet your blog posts.

Use Your Blog as a Buffer

Direct Selling on Twitter is a no-no and a violation of etiquette. Although it is done, there is strong evidence that it isn’t effective unless you’ve built a strong relationship with your followers. If you are just starting out, I recommend that you create tweets that send people primarily to your blog for follow-up. On your blog, you can get their email address and push your pitch a bit harder. Think of your blog as an intermediate step between Twitter and your sales-focused website.

Twitter is a powerful tool that will yield dividends over time. The key to success is discipline and consistency. Design your strategy to stay relevant, authentic, and useful and you will find your sales pipeline benefiting from this latest “social” tool.

12 Tips to Become Financially Fit in 2015 Latest

12 Tips to Become Financially Fit in 2015 Latest

By now every friend of mine knows that I am working in a Finance domain. They have started teasing me now-a-days. Recently when we met for New Years Eve, one of my friends asked me what’s your “financial resolution” for this year. How much you are saving and planning? Let’s keep these teasers away. But I am sure most of us are worried about money at start of New Year (actually we are always worried about money. Don’t say that you are not! If you are reading this then you are worried). I have compiled plain and simple tips to keep you financially healthy and can be followed easily.

1. Become your own CFO

You cannot take control of things which you don’t know. To take control of your money you need to first check where you are spending it. Track down what and where you are expensing your money. Nobody cares about your finances more than you.

2. Go on a diet

Please don’t close the window. I am not suggesting you to stop eating. I am asking you to track down that one expense (unimportant expense) which is not allowing you to achieve your goals. It’s a fable in finance, if you can avoid certain expenses for 30 days you can avoid them easily for near future.

Example: Simple expense to choose is buying online clothes. If you have an urge or habit of buying clothes (let’s say T-shirts/shirts costing you for Rs. 1000/-) every month. Then you can calculate expenses for whole year. i.e. Rs.12000/- I am sure you will survive without this expense. Try to invest the amount for yourself.

3. Be selfish

Think about yourself first and then help others. This mostly happens with ladies (be it mommies or sisters), they put their family first and then are unable to help themselves. Ladies you should understand once, you invest for yourself and then you get flexibility of helping others.

4. Automate your money

I am not asking you to use your debit/credit cards for shopping. I am suggesting instead of paying manually for your investment, just automate the investment. Your money is straight away taken from your paycheck for your retirement investment account or mutual funds investment account. This makes you worry less, save time & money and stop you from expensing money. Automation helps you save more, keep priorities intact taking emotions out of it.

5. Add another income stream

Don’t rely on single source of income. There are numerous sources wherein you can apply for second income. Make 2015 more lucrative for yourself by choosing second income source.

6. Get a library card

Don’t just let things go off. If you don’t understand things related to finance/investments, either get them cleared from your financial adviser or look for answers in books. There are loads of books on finance and investment written by experts.

7. Make your investments boring

I am not asking to delay your investment. I am asking to invest and forget about it. When people invest money they are kind of excited about returns on that time! They start monitoring investments every day and buy and sell according to market. This might lead you nowhere. To make money, you need to take out your excitement and stress. This reminded me about the statement made by Paul Samuelson -“Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grows. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas.”

8. Track your progress

Everything matters in finance is how much you save. Keep track have you started saving better than before? Every month track your networth (I use to track it). This gives you idea about Investment, Savings, Expenses or Taxes. This can make greatest impact on your finance/ financial planning

9. Cut out 10%

Try to reduce your expenses by 10%. List down your expenses and see which can be stopped or reduced. Invest these few thousands or hundreds in yourself or in your future via paying off your debts, investing for your planned business, etc. Try to maximize doing this for better savings. This idea works each time.

10. Cut your 2015 taxes

Word Tax makes us run. Before it gets deducted from your paycheck get done some tax saving investments. You can start saving your taxes for financial year 2015-16 as market is good for investments.

11. Reduce your goals

When most people don’t create goals (You can use for your life goal tracking), but it’s an extreme when people create too many goals. Don’t just dump your goals. Successful people keep their goals simple and create single challenge in front of them.

12. Spend smartly at the holidays

This year with many long weekends can tempt you to go on mini vacations. While planning your vacation don’t forget to plan the expenses too. Try to compare different travelling and staying packages at different places which are easily available online can help you plan your holidays better and will save more.
