Bye Bye July. Hello August 🙌🏻

July was an amaaaaazing month for us 🙌🏻. This is just a quick update to let you know some of the things that have happened and where we’re headed.

Record Signups

Firstly, in July we had RECORD numbers of people signing up for MoneyMax101. A real sign that people are interested in learning about, and investing in the stock market. For us, this is a good thing. This means;

  • Lots more people will benefit from our award-winning FREE daily email updates and other insights
  • Lots more knowledge will be shared (especially in our stock chat)
  • And a lot more people can start tracking their portfolio and managing their wealth

Our Users Love It

Of course, we not only track sign-ups, we also look at engagement, and woaa, are our people loving it! 🕺🏻 From logins, taking part in our Stock Chat, email clicks, checking their portfolio and company profiles… the message is clear. We are a BIG help to people investing in the stock market!

Pleaaaaase tell someone. Share it with a friend. (An aside: We need all the help we can get. MoneyMax101 was started by someone like you – a normal investor trying to grow and understand the markets and it has grown exponentially, in a large way by the support of passionate people that have come to love it.)

We hear the stories every day. People contacting us, wanting to upgrade and thanking us for the service so far. In fact, just this month, two of our users offered to pay annually, instead of quarterly as currently being advertised! Those are the kinds of people that keep this service going.

Speaking of upgrading, here are a few reasons why upgrading just makes sense…

For US$9.99 (our most popular plan), compared to $19.99 or $29.99 most overseas companies charge for similar services you will benefit from

  • better portfolio tracking
  • more company data (financials, ratios, etc)
  • more news and analysis
  • full access to community
  • and a chance to support the wonderful work we do here

That’s less than J$1,400 per month but the VALUE and TIME SAVED is phenomenal! IF saving time and getting insights about making money is really important to you please think about it.

You can also pay us in J$ and we can accept bank transfers to our Jamaican Bank accounts.

What’s Ahead

We’re testing a lot of features, and rolling out updates every day.

In July we included stock insights in the portfolio (technical tab, to see stocks with trending prices and volumes). We will also add to that, as there are more insights we want to add. We also added dividend trend charts in the portfolio (dividend tab). We’ve added a feature to include/exclude fees in tracking your portfolio gains, made lots of changes to our stock chat, refreshed our features page, made our news page a little faster… and much more than we can even remember.

For the weeks ahead, we will push ahead with new features, including any improvements you suggest. We are due to have another survey to get your feedback and we will continue to push user growth to ensure that the site is sustainable.

Being independent is a big PLUS for us. We can be genuine, honest and provide real insights on investing. We can also be free to innovate and focus on what our users want. Thank you for your support in making this happen.

Keep at it, MoneyMax Millionaires
