What Makes A Financial Website Successful?

At one time, the internet appeared to offer all organisations a simple proposition: email connectivity and a clickable presence in the form of a website. Today, web presence has rapidly evolved with interactive content and the ability to deliver transactional experiences – or e-commerce. Migrating services online helps business reduce costs, while customers benefit from the convenience and autonomy of self-service.

Financial services are faced with the challenge of delivering their customers with an online experience that goes far beyond just a website.

Financial services sites are absolutely competitive. They are really trying to drive people online. The self-service model is being taken seriously so they want to make sure their sites are available, responsive and allow users to do as many things as possible.

Though, many have shown an overall poor performance. The top reasons for failure were as follows: company websites make browsing too difficult; content missing, repeated and

poorly worded; and site search doesn’t work for typical tasks.

Here are three factors for a successful online financial service site which keeps users engaged and displays great use of technology while still delivers company’s messages clearly and effectively:

  • Customer experience, which includes the impression the homepage and overall design style give the customers, their satisfaction when they interact with the site and perform tasks.
  • Best practices, such as ease of use, quality, availability and security – site managers must be compliant with data laws requiring them to protect customer information and the integrity of customer accounts.
  • Service-level, which looks at responsiveness and reliability of websites – scores them on how quickly they respond to user commands and such factors as average downtime.

Financial services must tie these three factors together – customer experience, best practices and reliability/responsiveness – to have an effective web presence. They can’t go hard into one particular area and ignore the others. They have to understand what’s available versus their competitors, what consumers think of their sites versus competitors’ and how their sites are performing.

How To Choose The Best Theme For My Business?

Building a beautiful website for your business begins with choosing a theme — a design that controls page layout, widget areas, and default style. Selecting Polygon for your business website can feel overwhelming, but you can make it easier by focusing on these three questions.

What Am I Publishing on My Website?
Draft a visual map of your website to help you plan your site structure and decide what you want your homepage to look like. Will your homepage contain static information about your business like a welcome message and business hours or do you want to showcase your latest blog content?

What Features Do I Need?
Are you building a restaurant website, a landing page for your hotel, a corporate blog, or something completely different? Depending on your business, you may need website features exclusive to certain themes.

What Look and Feel Do I Want for My Website?
You can filter themes by style and color if you have a specific look in mind or need to match a brand logo. While most themes can be tweaked with custom headers and background colors, Custom Design unlocks next-level customization.

Think back to the content you expect to publish on your site. Do you need a design that showcases photos? If so, choose a portfolio site or a design that makes the most of high-resolution photos. Perhaps photography plays a small role in your website design. If so, avoid themes that only look good with a lot of photos.

What make a brand successful?

Branding is a way to distinguish your product or service from the rest of market and create a perceived value in the mind of potential customers. For example, in the car world, the Mercedes brand creates different expectations than the Kia brand. However, branding is also important for small businesses that want to stand out in the market, and the keys to successful branding include knowing your target customers and making all your decisions with a focus on what’s important to them.

Define your customers

The first key to successful branding is to define the types of customers you want to attract. Moms with toddlers or women without children? Men who like drag racing or those who prefer quiet afternoons in nature? Health-conscious individuals or those who don’t know a carrot from a turnip? Make a list of all the types of customers you want your business to attract. Volvo built its brand on attracting people concerned with auto safety.

Study Your Customers

Find out what is important to the customers you want to attract. If you already have some customers, you can survey them. Otherwise, look at demographic information and other studies done that provide information about your target customers. Once you know what’s important to your target customers, choose the three or four outcomes that are the most important to your ideal customer.

Be Consistent with Your Brand Position

Using the three or four outcomes you defined, create a brand position that describes what your business does and for whom, the unique value your business offers and how this value is different from the competition, and the benefits the customer gets from your product or service. Also, decide on the one most important thing that your business always promises to deliver to customers. Consistently make all your decisions based on this brand promise and your brand position.

Create the Elements of Your Brand

Create a brand personality — traits you want your business known for — and, if you have an established business, a brand story that shows how your business’ history adds value and credibility to the brand. Also, create the physical elements that make up the brand, including your logo, business tagline, colors, fonts, imagery and other physical elements used in marketing and presenting your brand. These physical brand associations should reflect your brand promise and all your brand traits, and also support your brand position.

Market Your Brand

According to Dan Coughin, president of the Coughlin Co., “The key to branding is reminding the customer of what you want them to remember about your brand,” and he says every contact (including marketing efforts) you have with current or potential customers must reinforce your brand.

New design trends

Looking for a website refresh and don’t know where to start? Some of the trendiest elements in web design right now are fun aesthetically and pretty easy to use.

Adding a trendy feature to your current design, or new build, can help create a modern vibe that can help drive visitors to your site. And what’s particularly nice about this tri of trends is that you can use them with existing elements, color and typography palettes and branding.

Here’s what’s trending in design this month:

1. Duotone color schemes

Duotone color palettes have been around for a long time, but the recent take adds a color wash effect to a duotone gradient for a full-screen, high impact effect. It’s something that trended out in a major way with flat design, but thanks to stunning usage by Spotify duotone is back.

So what exactly is duotone?

It is the use of two colors to form a palette. In the most basic form, duotone is a complementary combination from the color wheel. In more complex uses, designers are using all kinds of color combinations and breaking the rules with pairings.

Most of the duotone effects feature a brightly-colored overlay on top of an image. The duotone effect highlights darks and lights and creates visual impact with stunning color. Spotify uses it in a great way to make standard artist photos that you’ve likely seen dozens of times look just different enough to be attention grabbing.

It’s a technique that you can use in a variety of ways. It works with almost any design concept and can be used as a full-screen element, such as many of the examples above, to create dominant art. It can also be used to create an interesting background, to accent user interface elements or to help add emphasis to a specific part of the design. Duotone works best when used for a single design element. The technique can be overpowering and should be used in moderation.

2. Spilt-screen design

Websites featuring a split-screen design are growing exponentially. The design technique features two panels of content side-by-side. Most of these concepts use a symmetrical outline so that each side of the screen has the same size and shape.

The result is a cool, dual content experience on desktop computers and (when coded properly) a great screen-by-screen experience on smaller devices, where the panels collapse and are stacked scrolling elements.

The design opportunities with the split-screen trend are limitless—half and half splits, splits with cards or grid-style elements, a subtle split and the list goes on. Each side of the design can also drive users to different types of content and help you glean valuable user analytics about the type of content that people want to see and click on.

Split-screen designs are user-friendly, work well in responsive frameworks and don’t overpower other design techniques that you might want to use.

Here are a few ways to split the screen effectively:

  • Pair color and typography when you don’t have strong visuals.
  • Focus the attention of the user with left to right movement that results in an action.
  • Use color blocking to split the screen and give your message plenty of room while increasing readability.
  • Think of a split-screen as oversized cards. Stack container elements in a mosaic or masonry style pattern to showcase different pieces of content.
  • Keep each “screen” simple. The trick to this design concept is the split screen. A minimal style can help add emphasis to the content therein.

3. Typography in a shared space

This is one of those trends you almost have to see, to understand: typography is extending into shared spaces in the design. Look at most websites and there are images and backgrounds and type. Elements are either made together, such as type on an image, or they are completely separated.

More designers are breaking out of that format and creating projects where type extends into the spaces of other elements. It’s interesting and fun to look at.

It can also be a challenge to create, because of concerns about readability.

The technique works best with simple typography, such as a medium-stroke sans serif. Text should have plenty of contrast to stand out from the background and any elements it crosses into or across. For this reason, most of the designs using this technique use white or black lettering.

Text also needs to have some size for this to work. Almost as important as color contrast, is contrast in size and space. You also have to take special care in how the text moves with different screen sizes or breakpoints so that letters do not cover areas of the image that are vital to your message.

Conclusion

While a lot of design trends come and go almost as fast as you start to recognize them, the ones that stick around often work well with other time-tested techniques. That’s what stands out the most about this trio of modern styles. Each can be worked into a layout for a touch of newness. These techniques are fairly easy to implement (and remove later) without destroying your entire aesthetic.

Try one of these techniques for a visual refresh. Think about getting out of your comfort zone a bit with bold color choices or a change just to your homepage. Or go a little more bold and try a combination of trendy techniques for a design that really stands out.

Daily Inspiration

On autumn weekends with good weather you can almost experience caravans of people marching over the grandiose lookout balconies between the Dolomites and the Tauern and filling the mountain lodges to capacity. But very few people have the idea of turning the perspective around and approaching the Carnic ridge for once from the valley side. And that is something that is certainly worthwhile.
It is no coincidence that at Heinfels in the valley of Drau, which is called Pustertal here, there stands an ancient castle that still appears to be fortified. It guards the entrance to two valleys: the Villgratental and the Tyrolean Gailtal. The latter is quite hidden, as it begins with a terrain level high above the valley floor of the river Drau. There is a climb of several hundred metres on a serpentine road before reaching the community of Kartitsch, with the prettily shaped tower of the St. Leonhard parish church. From the enclosure wall of the cemetery you can enjoy a distant view to the west into the Pustertal, which here runs in a strikingly straight line. The reason for this is a distinct geological line, the “peri-adriatic seam“. This frontier line leaves the Pustertal in Kartitsch and follows the Tyrolean Gailtal, which to the east of the Kartitscher Sattel is called the Tilliacher Tal, and then further east beyond the federal border with Carinthia again changes its name, and for the next 20 kilometres goes under the name of Lesachtal. At Kötschach-Mauthen the name of the valley changes again, confusingly back to Gailtal, which at Villach at last flows into the Drau.
Viewed from above, the Gail or Lesachtal also runs in a straight line. There is a clear distinction in appearance between the northern and southern sides of the valley. N ons side the gentle foothills of the Lienzer Dolomites, with its wide alp areas, on the other side the rocky contours of the Carnic ridge towering above thick mountain forest and marking the state border with Italy.
In Kartitsch we are already 1.350 m above sea level, the area is one of the highest situated valleys in East Tyrol, which itself is at high altitude.
Some 200 m higher the Kartitscher Sattel is reached, from where you can look down onto Obertilliach and Untertilliach.
“Golzentipp“ is the name of the local mountain in this area. A perfect vantage point with a grandiose panorama view, encompassing the Hohen Tauern and the Schober group of mountains, the Lienzer Dolomites, the Carnic Alps, the Sextener Dolomites and far into the Pustertal. The chances are good that the view can also be enjoyed, as testified by the many years of meteorological records taken in this region, showing an above-average number of sunny days.
Fans of high rocky cliffs will prefer the south side of the valley and head for one of the many side valleys of the Carnic ridge. Pfannspitze, Großer Kinigat, Porze, Cima Manzon, Gamskofel, Hochspitz, Steinkarspitz – between the Obstanser See and the Luggauer Scharte there are countless opportunities to test your stamina and alpine abilities in the midst of grandiose mountain scenery.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

Saya Bangkrut!

Anda pernah bangkrut? Mungkin banyak dari anda pernah mengalamai kegagalan bahkan kebangkrutan. Tapi mungkin tidak sedikit juga dari anda yang belum mengalami kebangkrutan. Gimana sih rasanya? Yang tadinya mungkin hidup enak, segalanya ada lalu tiba-tiba menjadi tidak punya apa-apa. Bahkan mungkin harta yang tersisa hanya tinggal pakaian yang melekat di tubuh anda. Dompet, handphone, jam, cincin, segala perhiasan, bahkan id card pun tidak ada. Ya, bangkrut selama 2,5 jam itu pernah saya rasakan ketika saya mengikuti Seminar Sales & Marketing Revolution di Jakarta pada 14-18 November 2012 kemarin. Seminar selama 5 hari ini merupakan salah satu rangkaian seminar dari program Master Breakthrough yang saya ikuti dan diselenggarakan oleh Pelatih Sukses No 1 di Indonesia, Tung Desem Waringin & para partnernya yang merupakan para ahli di bidangnya. Seperti saat Seminar Sales & Marketing Revolution kemarin ada Hendrik Ronald (Pakar Service Excellence), Marshyellino Cambey (Pakar Digital Marketing), Alex Fatahilah (Pakar Dunia Sales), dan Peter Kohar (Pakar Social Media Marketing).

Bangkrut yang kemarin saya dan teman-teman alami adalah sebuah games yang dibuat agar para peserta dapat langsung mempraktekan ilmu-ilmu yang dipelajari selama seminar kemarin. Seluruh peserta membuat team yang terdiri dari 10 orang, dan tiap orang harus berkampanye singkat untuk dipilih jadi pemimpin team. Masing-masing dari kami pun berkampanya, dan akhirnya kami memilih Pak Doni yang kami anggap paling senior di antara kami untuk menjadi pemimpin. Dan tiap team harus punya nama, kami kemudian sepakat untuk menamai team kami dengan nama Team Orgasme. Orgasme punya arti puas, visi kami adalah agar dapat memuaskan semua anggota team dan calon pelanggan kami nantinya. Yel-yel kelompok kami “Kuat, keras, tahan lama!” Maksudnya adalah kuat orang-orangnya, keras mentalnya dan bisa tahan lama semangatnya.. Edan? :D 

 

Sales & Marketing Revolution Tung Desem Waringin
Orgasme Team

Nah setelah membuat nama team, dan maju untuk menyorakan yel-yel, kemudian kami diharuskan meninggalkan barang-barang berharga, seperti dompet, uang, kartu kredit, kartu debit, jam, perhiasan (termasuk cincin kawin) sampai KTP dan semua id card pun harus ditinggalkan. Hanya tersisa pakaian yang melekat di badan kami saja. Karena itulah Game ini disebut dengan “Bangkrut Game” Kami diberi waktu kurang lebih 2,5 jam untuk mencari minimal Rp 1 juta yang nantinya uang tersebut juga digunakan untuk makan seluruh anggota team. Kalo tidak bisa dapat uang dalam waktu 2,5 jam maka otomatis seluruh anggota team tidak akan bisa makan. Jadi kondisi kami benar-benar dipepet dan didesak agar bisa kreatif bagaimana pun caranya (dalam arti positif) bisa menghasilkan uang dalam waktu yang terbatas tadi. Bisnis apapun boleh dilakukan yang penting tidak melanggar hukum dan asusila.

Kebetulan tempat kami seminar ada di Maspion Plaza yang mana dekat dengan Mangga Dua Square. Saat itu sekitar pukul 4 sore, dan pukul 18.30 semua team harus sudah kembali dengan membawa hasil dan sudah dalam kondisi makan. Team kami pun menuju Mangga Dua Square dan mencari-cari, peluang apa yang bisa dimanfaatkan. Untuk mempersingkat waktu, kami dan team sepakat berpencar terlebih dahulu untuk mencari-cari peluang dan sepakat berkumpul pukul 16.45. Namun anggota team kami tidak berkumpul lengkap, setelah cukup lama menunggu kami akhirnya berinisiatif mulai berjualan. Kami menuju keluar Mangga Dua Square berniat mencari warung untuk kami bantu jualkan barangnya.

Rencananya kami akan menjual air minum. Di depan mangga dua ternyata ada beberapa pedagang asongan yang menjual air mineral. Kami pun menghampiri salah satu pedagang dan mencoba bernegosiasi, dan hasilnya adalah penjual tersebut MENOLAK! Oke, berarti ada yang salah dengan cara negosiasi kami. Akhirnya kami mencoba jurus yang Pak Tung selalu ajarkan dalam bernegosiasi yaitu senantiasa membuat orang lain Win terlebih dahulu baru kita Win. Saya akhirnya mencoba menghampiri penjual lainnya dan menanyakan ada berapa air mineral yang dia punya. Setelah dihitung-hitung ternyata ada 12.

Kemudian, saya bilang “Boleh bu kalo saya beli semua air mineralnya?” Kalo anda sebagai penjual, apakah akan menolak jika barang daganganya akan dibeli semua oleh pelanggan anda? Tentu enggak dong. Ibu tersebut akhirnya menjawab, “Wah boleh sekali!” Kemudian saya tanya lagi, “Berapa harganya 1 botol?” Jawab ibu tersebut “Dua ribu rupiah,” Nah, masalahnya adalah kami semua gak punya duit sama sekali buat bayar air mineralnya, jaminan pun gak ada. Saya kemudian spontan bilang, “Boleh gak air mineralnya kami beli Rp 3.000,-?” Aha! Saya beli lebih mahal, sontak pula penjual tersebut bilang “Ya!” Lalu kemudian, saya bilang lagi “Tapi bayarnya nanti, boleh ya? Kita bawa sebentar dulu, boleh-boleh?” *Sambil angguk-angguk kepala*

Dan ibu tersebut pun akhirnya memperbolehkan. Tanpa meminta jaminan apapun! :D Kok bisa ya? Karena kita sudah buat ibu tersebut Win dulu! Selain itu ada yang namanya hukum psikologis “Ya kecil”. Dalam seminar diajarkan bagaimana membuat orang “Ya kecil” terlebih dahulu (dalam kasus ini “Ya” untuk saya beli semua dan “Ya” untuk saya beli lebih mahal) untuk mendapatkan “Ya besar” (saya bawa dulu barangnya dan bayar belakangan). Selain itu saya menjaga gaya bicara saya agar makin meyakinkan.

Akhirnya waktu yang hanya tersisa 1 jam segera kami manfaatkan untuk berjualan membagikan air mineral secara gratis. Loh? Kok malah dibagikan? Jangan makin bingung, kita mau praktek yang namanya “Hukum timbal balik” Ini adalah salah satu jurus marketing paling powerfull dan jangan sembarangan praktek karena bisa sangat “berbahaya” :D Kami sepakat untuk menyumbangkan uang yang kami dapatkan untuk orang-orang yang kurang beruntung. Jadi kami membagikan air mineral ke orang yang lewat. “Sore pak. Apakah haus? Silahkan diambil airnya. Gratis!” Tentu jika orang diberi sesuatu hal yang berbau gratis maka 80% akan menerima. Dan kemudian kami terus terang, merupakan kumpulan anak muda yang sedang mencari dana untuk di amalkan. “Jika anda berminat turut membantu juga, anda bisa menyumbang berapapun yang anda mau. Atau jika tidak mau, tidak papa dan tetap boleh ambil air mineralnya gratis.” Dengan kata-kata seperti itu 98% orang akan merasa tidak enak jika tidak menyumbang setelah diberi kebaikan oleh kami.

Apalagi air mineral sudah di tangan mereka, tidak mungkin lagi kalo dikembalikan. Dan akhirnya mereka mau dengan sukarela menyumbang, bahkan ada yang membayar air mineral kami dengan Rp 110.000,- satu botolnya. Tentu kami doakan semoga mereka semua dilimpahkan rejekinya, diberi panjang umur, dan kesehatan. Aminn! Akhirnya setelah air mineralnya habis, 2 teman saya kemudian  menghampiri ibu penjual asongan yang memiliki air mineral tersebut dan membayarnya. Awalnya kami masih ingin memutar uang tersebut. Tapi karena waktu yang terbatas kami memutuskan untuk mencari team kami yang terpisah dan kembali ke Maspion Plaza.

Ketika sedang mencari team kami di Mangga Dua Square, ternyata ada beberapa orang dari pihak Management dan Keamanan Mangga Dua Square yang melihat kami. Kami pun ditanya sebenarnya ada apa, kok ada banyak orang mendadak jualan macem-macem di Mall. Semua pemilik toko di dekatin untuk dipinjem barang dagangannya. Dalam hati, “Asem tenan, padahal team kami gak jualan di dalam Mall, tapi malah kami yang kena” Gak heran, memang kebanyakan peserta seminar mencari uang di Mangga Dua Square, dan mondar mandir menawarkan apa saja yang bisa dijual disana. Ketika kami sedang ditanya-tanya, anggota team kami yang lain pun datang. Dan kemudian mereka membantu menjelaskan ke pihak Mangga Dua Square. Karena sudah makin sore, kemudian sebagian team memutuskan untuk pulang terlebih dahulu ke Maspion Plaza. Dan sebagian masih memberikan keterangan, menyusul ketika urusan sudah beres.

Kami pun kembali menuju Maspion Plaza. Tapi kami teringat kalo kami semua belum makan, akhirnya saya bersama teman satu team saya Unggul, membeli sate di sebelah Maspion Plaza untuk makan satu team kami, sisanya  kembali ke tempat seminar. Niat kami, kami pinjam dulu uang dari hasil jualan untuk beli sate, baru kemudian ketika dompet dan barang-barang sudah kembali kami menggantinya. Karena jika tidak beli makan, maka sampai malam kami tidak akan sempat makan. Akhirnya semua team sudah berkumpul di ruangan seminar. Pak Tung mengumumkan hasilnya setelah semua melapor ke pihak panitia hasil yang di dapatnya.

Disitu kemudian kita semua saling share, berapa yang didapat dana bagaimana cara-cara kami untuk mendapatkan uang tersebut. Dan apakah semua anggota team sudah makan atau belum. Ada beberapa team yang tidak makan sama sekali, ada yang baru makan roti, ada yang sudah makan kenyang, bahkan ada juga yang mengoleh-olehi Pak Tung soto. Kalau team kami sendiri makan sate di ruangan seminar  bersama-sama. Kami beli 7 porsi sate untuk 10 orang.

Orgasme Team Makan Sate Bersama

Hasil cari uang hari itu, ada yang mendapat Rp 2 juta, Rp 3 juta, beberapa ratus ribu bahkan ada juga yang minus. Perolehan terbesar ada dari salah satu peserta seminar yang menjual jasa membuat website dan SEO. Dia dibayar kurang lebih Rp 10 juta, dan hari itu di DP kalo tidak salah RP 2 juta. Wow mantap ya? Ada juga yang berhasil menjadi makelar di pameran mobil. Mendapatkan cashback sekitar Rp 8 juta. Tapi sayangnya uangnya gak kelihatan alias belum dibayar, jadi tidak bisa dihitung. Beberapa team sepakat juga untuk menyumbangkan uang yang didapatnya. Akhirnya kami semua mengumpulkannya ke Pak Diki, salah satu team dari TDW Resources untuk disalurkan ke orang-orang yang membutuhkan.

Uang hasil penjualan yang akan kami sumbangkan

 

Disitu banyak hal yang dapat kami semua pelajari dan ambil hikmahnya. Ada yang bilang, “Ternyata gini toh rasanya jadi orang miskin, bangkrut”  Tapi apa yang saya pelajari hari itu adalah, sebenarnya kalo kita mau berusaha, pasti ada jalan. Kita tidak bawa uang, tidak bawa jaminan, id card apapun asal mau take action untuk mencoba, pasti ada saja jalannya. Dan cari uang itu gampang tinggal bagaimana kita mau berusaha atau tidak.
