Two Pieces of Advice That a Financial Advisor is Likely to Give You About Car Procurement

If you approach a financial advisor in search of advice about car procurement, there are two main issues that are likely to come up. That is to say, in other words, that there are some two pieces of advice that a financial advisor is likely to give you, about car procurement.

The first piece of advice that the financial advisor is likely to give you, about car procurement, is the one to the effect that you should only buy a car if you really need one.

The second piece of advice that a financial advisor is likely to give you, about car procurement, is the one to the effect that even if you really need a car, you should only buy a car that you can really afford. This should be a car that you can afford in terms of the purchase price. This should also be a car that you can afford in terms of maintenance costs. To find out how much the car is likely to cost to maintain, you may have to contact the people selling it, to ask for the deeper specifications. You can, for instance, log in to Gmail quite easily at www.gmail.com, and once you have done so, proceed to send an email to the car vendors, asking them to give you information about the car with respect to things like fuel consumption, the cost of spare parts and so on.

Factors That Determine Whether a Web-Based Financial Advisor is Likely to be Successful

Several factors determine whether a web-based financial advisor is likely to be successful.

Firstly, you can tell if a given web-based financial advisor is likely to be successful by trying to figure out whether or not he or she actually has a solid grasp of the pertinent financial issues. Those are the issues he or she is supposed to advise others about.

Secondly, you can tell if a given web-based financial advisor is likely to be successful by trying to figure out whether or not he or she is willing to go the extra mile. A given web-based financial advisor may, for instance, be willing to sign in to Gmail at the main site which is Gmail.com, to simply respond to comments by readers of an article or she posted somewhere. Now this would be a sign of a person who is willing to go the extra mile, and needless to say, such a person is likely to succeed in the fullness of time.

Thirdly, you can tell if a given web-based financial advisor is likely to be successful by looking at the business model he or she operates under. The financial advisors who succeed are those who are able to come up with business models that make commercial sense, when viewed objectively.

Getting Paid for Providing Financial Advice Over the Internet

Getting paid for providing financial advice over the Internet is easy.

One way in which you  can go about getting paid for providing financial advice over the Internet would be through an arrangement where the people receiving the advice pay for it directly. The users of the financial advice platform can, for instance, be required to make subscription fee payments.

Another way in which you can go about getting paid for providing financial advice over the Internet would be through an arrangement where you monetize the platform on which you provide the advice. This is something you can do through an affiliate marketing platform. If, for instance, you provide advice to the effect that people need to invest in General car insurance, you can proceed to link it to a website where people can get a general car quote, and where you get paid a commission if such people proceed to buy insurance. It sounds complicated in theory, but it practice, it is actually quite straightforward.

Yet another way in which you can go about getting paid for providing financial advice over the Internet would be by asking for donations from the people who make use of the platform on which the advice is provided.

Financial Habits That a Good Financial Advisor is Likely to Strongly Discourage

Any good financial advisor is likely to discourage certain financial habits in the clients who seek his or her counsel.

One financial habit that a good financial advisor is likely to strongly discourage is that of impulse spending. The financial advisor may actually go as far as telling the client to desist from making an application for credit card at, say, a site like www.capitalone.com – even if the client feels like he or she can’t live without such a card. This would be out of appreciation for the fact that the client in question is the sort of a person who is drawn to impulse spending by the availability of credit facilities like the credit cards in question.

Another financial habit that a good financial advisor is likely to strongly discourage is that of spending more than one earns.

Yet another financial habit that a good financial advisor is likely to strongly discourage is that of hoarding money, as opposed to investing it. The problem with this habit is in the fact that it ends up leading to depreciation of the money (thanks to the effects of inflationary trends). On the other hand, folks who invest their money are able to have it work for them.

Two Business Models You Can Use as a Financial Advisor

As a financial advisor, there are some two business models that you can use.

The first business model that you can use as a financial advisor would be the one where you open up an office where people in search of financial advice can be consulting you. This is the traditional approach to provision of financial advice services, and chances are that you will have learnt about it in the course of your training for consultancy.

The second business model that you can use as a financial advisor would be the one where you set up a website through which you can be providing financial advice to people remotely. This is not as hard as it sounds. We, after all, have many virtual counselor websites operating, where people get online counseling services. That is a model you can use, not to provide psychological counseling, but to provide financial advise: which is something that many people really yearn for. Setting up the website is itself not so hard, and it may actually turn out to be cheaper than setting up a brick and mortar office. Yet the website makes it possible for you to reach an international audience, whereas the potentially costlier to set up brick and mortar office limits you to a small local audience.

Three Platforms On Which You Can Set Up a Website to Provide Financial Advice Online

If you are considering setting up a website for providing financial advice online, one of the things you will need to make a decision on is the platform through which the website is to be set up.

One platform on which you can set up a website to provide financial advice online is the WordPress platform.

Another platform on which you can set up a website to provide financial advice online is the Drupal platform.

Yet another platform on which you can set up a website to provide financial advice online is the Joomla platform.

Now each of these platforms has advantages and disadvantages. You may need, at some point, to login to Yahoo Mail (if that is what you use), at ymail.com, and then send an email to a web development specialist asking him or her to advise you on the pros and cons of each platform. While at it, you could ask him or her to give you quotations on what it would take for him or her to create such a website on the respective platforms. You will notice, when all is said and done, that some platforms are easier to use than others, and that some platforms are friendlier to the search engines than others.

Two Methods Through Which a Professional Financial Advisor Can Serve His Clients Through Email

Often, we have professional financial advisors expressing interest in knowing how they can use email to serve their clients. And as we come to learn, there are actually two methods through which such professional advisors can serve their clients through email.

The first method through which professional advisors can serve their clients through emails is by creating newsletters containing sound financial advice, and then sending such newsletters to the clients in question via email. This would be generic advice, and in figuring out what to include in such newsletters, the financial advisor would probably need to identify issues that his entire client body is likely to have, and then deal with them from various angles comprehensively in the newsletters. The newsletters can be given out for free or, if they are very good, subscription fees can be charged for them.

The second method through which professional advisors can serve their clients via emails is by setting up systems where they can receive – and respond to — specific queries from specific clients through email. To get this sort of a system running, a professional financial advisor may sign up for Google email, and then publicize the email to his clients, informing them that they can send queries to him, and expect answers to the same from him, through the said email addresses.

The Tools of Trade You Need Before Getting Started as an Internet-Based Financial Advisor

Getting started as an Internet-based financial advisor is not hard: so long as you have the right qualifications, and the right level of business acumen to attract and retain clients. There are, however, a few ‘tools of trade’ that you need, before getting started in this particular venture.

The first tool of trade that you need, before getting started as a n Internet-based financial advisor is a website.

The second tool of trade that you need, before getting started, as an Internet-based financial advisor, is a checkout system through which you can receive payments from your clients.

The third tool of trade that you need, before getting started as an Internet-based financial advisor, is an email address, through which you can maintain contact with your clients. This can be (and should ideally be) an address based on your website’s domain name. But, for a start, you can also sign up for a Gmail account, as described on this blog and then, through the Gmail for Business program, have its domain name bit changed to reflect your website’s name. This way, you get to enjoy the reliability of Gmail, without having to make do with the apparent lack of sophistication associated with generic Gmail addresses.

Mechanisms for Providing Financial Advice Remotely

Financial advice can be given, by professional financial advisors, remotely. As it turns out, there are several mechanisms for providing such financial advice remotely.

The first mechanism for providing financial advice remotely would be through a blog or a website. We have seen some financial advisors setting up blogs or websites, where people – at a fee – post financial questions, and they get financial advice remotely.

The second mechanism for providing financial advice remotely would be through the phone. This is an approach that has been used by the financial advisors who work with the ultra-rich for quite some time, with what can be described as fairly good results.

The third mechanism for providing financial advice remotely would be through email. Indeed, it is to be expected that a financial advisor would, at the very least, make a visit to the Gmail sign up page, and follow steps like those enumerated at gmailcomlogin.biz to create an email account through which he or she can give advice to clients remotely. This is particularly important for a financial advisor who works with high net-worth individuals. Those are people who travel a lot around the world, and who therefore often need to procure financial advice remotely as they often make major financial decisions while traveling.

Why Financial Advisors are Inclined to Charge Their Clients Huge Fees for Their Services

There are several reasons as to why financial advisors are inclined to charge their clients huge fees for their services.

The first reason as to why financial advisors are inclined to charge their clients huge fees for their services is in the fact that such financial advisors’ training is costly. You will come to learn that, as a matter of fact, most of them don’t pay for the training with their own funds. Rather, they fill in the FAFSA form, so as to get access to this loan service which is run by the government.

The second reason as to why financial advisors are inclined to charge their clients huge fees for their services is in the fact that such financial advisors are likely to have relatively few clients. So if they are to survive, they have to charge each client a lot of money.

The third reason as to why financial advisors are inclined to charge their clients huge fees for their services is in the fact that such financial advisors are likely to be of the view that the clients are likely to derive a lot of value from their services. They are thus inclined to be of the view that they should charge a lot for the ‘value’ they provide to the clients.
