The earliest record of dealings dealings in securities in India is the East India Company’s loan securities. The advent of the companies Act 1850 and subsequent introduction of the principle of  limited liability, made investments in stocks and shares popular.

Until Until 1988 1988,, stock  stock  exchanges were more or less self-regulatory organizations. Their regulations covered the entire gamut of operations of stockbrokers. However, they had not been discharging their  self-regulatory role well, resulting into malpractices in trading, settlement and transfer of  securities. Ever since the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) assumed the monitoring function of brokers, stock broking is emerging as a professional service in tune with with the the requ require ireme ments nts of matu mature re and and sophi sophisti sticat cated ed stock stock excha exchang nges es in the the coun country try,, replacing its traditional closed character as inherited family business. To act as a broker, broker, certificate of registration registration from the SEBI is mandatory. It is empowered empowered to impose conditions while granting the certificate that as a member of a stock exchange he has to abide its rules, regulations and bye-laws, pay the prescribed fee and take adequate steps for the redressal of investors’ grievances within one month of the receipt of the complaint and keep the SEBI informed about the number, nature and other particular of  such complaints.

The relationship between the DPs and the depository is governed by an agreement made between the two under the Depositories Act.

As per the provisions of this Act, a DP can offer offer deposit depository ory-rel -related ated services services only only after after obtaini obtaining ng a certifica certificate te of registrat registration ion from SEBI.

The table value of χ2 for nine degrees of freedom at 5 percent level of significance is16.919.

The calculated value of χ2 is less than the table value and is considered as insignificant. The null hypothesis is rejected and the alternate hypothesis is accepted and hence there is relationship between age and risk taking.

CHAPTER CHAPTER 10  MY EXPERIENCES  EXPERIENCES 

Sales and marketing 

When the internship took off, to understand the different tasks of a marketing

 person and that that of a group group was was the crux. crux.



The driving force or the soul of any company like share khan is sales along with the actual processes that come with the marketing mix.



The real building blocks of sales are the 3 c’s which are Coax, convince and customer. The customer is the essential ingredient in this mix.

67 | P a g e



In an era where a large number of companies are trying to outsell each other, the innovation in terms of sales has increased manifold and in order to jet past the rest selling has become creative.

Why it is important for a marketing intern to learn the nuances of sales



The backbone of both the marketing and the internship starts off with sales and

thus in terms of growth the marketing team has to exhibit its capabilities in terms of  sales.



The creativity involved in marketing has to be applied to sales in terms of 

achieving numbers along with the other attributes associated with it.



Finally, the whole process of convincing a customer, understanding his needs

ends with selling a product.



A product cannot be sold without a customer and a customer cannot be found

without a customer database, so the process is initiated by building a customer  database.

Building and Expanding Customer Database:



To sell a product one has to build a customer database so as to pursue potential customer and every customer added to the company is a small victory in itself.



There were several ways to expand the customer database. One was to give out  pamphlets  pamphlets which which was distribute distributed d all across across the city either by by setting up Vantage points or in IPL matches which was an ideal time to connect with people.

68 | P a g e



The customer database expanded everyday and the next phase was to convince any of these customers into opening an account.



Making calls to all the customers was a responsibility that was taken up everyday regardless of field work.



The calls made were an integral part of the project as the ability to convince a customer was increasing with every call.



There were customers who put an end to a call abruptly and there were others who listened to what was being said but finally did not agree to open an account.



The company had several plans for customers to work with, so the customer had to  be explained explained about about all the the intricacies intricacies of it and and convince convince him that it in fact was the  best plan that has ever been been offered. offered.



As the internship progressed, there were several ideas that started flowing into selling to expand the companies’ products.



The ideas were more on the lines of building a stronger customer database which in turn had lead to more customers.



One of those ideas was to visit a college and conduct a seminar about the services offered by share khan. The college visit was an eye opener to know the mood mood of a student towards d-mat accounts and online share trading.

New packages newer customers: 

The internship entered its second month and there was a lot of festivity and to savor  them the company introduced new plans and packages.

69 | P a g e



The plans were to reduce the brokerage commission for an account in intra day trading and there were other packages as well but this generated a lot of interest.



Smart packaging of this product led to increase in sales as this was one of the lowest commissions offered in the market.



 New packages packages meant meant newer newer customers, customers, while while expanding expanding the customer customer database database was a pretty useful as it meant more people to be convinced and the conversion rate was higher than expected during this period.



Higher conversion rate is the higher rate of conversion of calls to customers.



The idea of putting forward some of these plan to relatives and friends who were among potential customers worked.



The discussions everyday with the city sales manager and the assistant manager on how to improve the sales were of prime importance as it helped as to how the  pressures of targets targets should be withstood. withstood.

.

Experiences: Ground level 

As each week passed by the experiences of meeting customers at ground level was refreshing as each person had a thing or two to say.



One had to put up with all the positive and negative feedback about the company and put things into perspective for the customers.



The negative feedback shall be reported back to the company in a step to improve on specific areas 70 | P a g e



So, sales was not just about selling products or services but also taking responses from customers.



All the endurance test had to be passed at the ground level and it had all the makings of a grueling period of sales and one that would be put right on track for a hard term of corporate life which is to follow.



Parks, stadiums, clubs, and malls everything was to put under the scanner for  clients and to add to the growing list of customers.



It was not just people who were working that were the focus but also students,  business people also were were potential potential targets. targets.



It was a big learning curve as each customer passed by and all the different ways to talking to a customer was learnt.



Some experience’s that one had to go through was sometimes grueling as some customers were very hard to convince.



As days went by it was a tough task to find new customers and add to the customer  kitty and new targets had to be achieved.

Interactions and improvements 

All the different promotional activity that will help in sales was discussed with the city sales manager.



The target was kept in mind or was the primary focus of discussion with the assistant manager.



Also to have an in-depth understanding of the company there was an interaction session with all the staff of share khan.

71 | P a g e



The interaction had gone long away in improving the convincing abilities of a  beginner  beginner in sales.



The know-how of product and services of share khan went a long way in achieving targets.

Process of opening an account The process of opening of opening a d-mat account: a) A form has to be filled with all all the details details about the customer customer along along with with his signature. b) The customer’s address proof, photo id proof, pan card is collected. c) Three check leafs duly signed by the customer is also needed.

The above three steps are standard procedures that have to be followed while opening an account.

Best Trainee Award 

Once I got to terms of sales and marketing and in which I learnt a lot about and it was all about long term targets now.

72 | P a g e



The target was to achieve an award for the best trainee the company has ever had, it was that motive that kept me going along with the motivation given by the faculty and company guides as well.



I had become well versed with the services and wanted to achieve something and I had the best trainee award within sight.



The magic number to receive the award was “28” but I have gone two steps further  in attaining “30”customers and thereby in turn getting the award.

73 | P a g e
