    Advice for a new start-up

    Hi all,

    I am in the process of building a new stock brokerage solution that provides significant discounts on transaction fees compared to traditional brokerages by harnessing the power of group investment. Think of it as Groupon meets stock brokerage.

    I am looking to get some feedback from potential customers as to current investing behaviours and interest in the new service to help me best shape the service. To this end I have created a survey and now need some respondents . If you do have the time to help me out by completing this survey it would be much appreciated, the link is:

    https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6BJWX8B

    If you do complete the survey and provide your e-mail address for future reference I have arranged a small token of my appreciation for you. Get to the end to find out what it is!

    Thanks in advance for your support,

    Jack

    I can only do the survey if the reward is a Mars bar.

    in which case it would be a 50% off fish & chips voucher. i hope it need not to be redeemed at that franchised outlet that serves fresh water fish!

    These guys are the cheapest (by far) for smaller trades - no monthly/yearly account fees ether.

    I agreed what is said above!!!
    Certain two facts on this post unequivocally the best we have all had. This is 100% true that it need not to be redeemed at that franchised outlet that serves fresh water fish.

    Jack, you're not seriously considering bundling transactions for a week, bra. When I ask for a trade, I want that trade.
    It would be a deal killer for me.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    I completed the servey Jack.

    I must agree with Dave.. i cannot wait a week before you execute a trade order because you accumulating orders to get bulk discounting. Someone else can fly into the twin towers again.. or something like it.

    If i may also add the servey seemed more like a recruitment assessment than a market opinion or servey.(Personal opinion.)

    I wish you luck in this venture but i think from a marketing point of view your post and servey has been met with some skepticism and negativity already. Maybe you need a different approach?? you are very brave to go into a market sector that's already stained by so many bad service providers.
