I personally believe that such kind of tie-ups will help the banks. As Indians are crazy in buying golds and offering a spot loan will attract more people to buy gold from the Expo. This will definitly help the bank to create more customers.
Prakash Khairnar  |  Answered  |  5 years ago
    Gold jewellery on loan basis is an exciting offer. This kind of offer will have a huge demand in india. Indian bank has set its first step and lets hope that other bank will also enter in the future.

It’s true that practice makes the man perfect. It was my stint with the leading life insurance company of India under tremendous sales pressure which helped me in learning new tricks of this trade. I have sold thousands of policies in last two and half years. For me, it’s very easy to identify in only two minutes, whether the customer is really serious in doing some investment or he has just called for information gathering activity. I have been the top performer and given various prizes. I have the reputation of converting 7 out of 10 clients if the customer has money in his pocket. I have earned lot of respect and money in this industry. At some occasions I picked policies worth million in just 10 minutes. I have never followed customer more than 2 times. I think any sales people must do that. I have habit of closing the deal at the discussion table in the first meeting with the client. Secret of my success is hard work and dedication. I have never given up. Each policy that I...

Hi Friends, I am sharing with the reviews of IBM on work culture, growth prospects salary, done by their employees. Please share your views. A Project Manager wrote: What I like about IBM: "IBM offers a very flexible working environment. In most cases, no one will ask you what time you come or go from office. Neither the logs of the swipe card will be analyzed to take some action against you in normal circumstances. In special circumstances, the company can even allow you to work from home. No blocking of internet or phones . All in all, you are "not" working in a jail. It has a wealth of knowledge..... " What I don't like about IBM: "Sometimes you feel that there are too many processes to follow. The company is so huge that it is a challenge to make people aware of existing processes. I have often seen it happening that sometimes small groups within IBM try to develop their own processes, often unaware that such a best practice already exists and can be leveraged. Ofcourses, Lou...
