Change the name of "Knowledge Investor"?

Lately, there are many new blog posts about Investing.

Many people are suggesting that the word "Invest" is a bad name for this product.

They say the word "Invest" suggests that maybe they could lose money (like what happens in real estate, or stocks).

But with FanBox Investing, you DO NOT lose money.

Remember, with FanBox Investing, you are only boosting (increasing) your bank balance.

So, people are suggesting that we change the name of "Invest" so its more accurate.


What do YOU think?

Do you think the word "Invest" makes people feel scared -- like they might lose their money?

If so, how about we change the name to "Boosting"?

In other words, no more Knowledge Investing -- only Knowledge Boosting?

I agree with Munawar,
but we have to think of majority.
We are hardly using the words "knowledge investor" or "knowledge investment". We just use investor or investment. So it scares away some people, who has no faith in fanbox, or who doesn't know fanbox well.
To me, how it's called doesn't matter, it's working great.
But I am so curious about the reaction of others.

I agree with May Ram.
All users are familiar with the norms of "knowledge investor", no need to change, keep it growing.
That's my opinion

I do agree that once you fully understand it, there is no fear.

But how many people never get started, because it sounds scary?

With the name, I think we should think of the new person -- not the small % of us that have figured out that there's no risk.

I think its 100 % wrong to change it. All members know it well and there is no confusion about "invest". so why we do that.

For me Investing or investor has no problem at all, it's better a word..losing money by investing? i don't think so, not here in fanbox..I think no one will say that he loses money upon investing specially if he already tried it.

For me there is nothing wrong with it.

I see no difference. It just makes "Boosting" " catchy" and "Investing" meant like "business" to others. If you guys get what I mean.

Ilike it the way it is.investing feels like i'm investing in my work.

Oh, I did not say to change or not to change. Because It's up to the majority.

As JC said, for newbies, and the oldies, who haven't had chance to taste the fruit of Knowledge investor product.

I honestly have to agree about being scared of the word "invest".
I remember the first day when the knowledge investor was launched. First I thought , 500 $ to invest, but after that, I told myself, well just for test 100$.

I am still curious with the ideas of others, in this matter.

it sounds funny...knowledge booster...leave it as knowledge investor...investors should read more on this in your posts...people are making lots of money from investing like Arlene did...by investing 5k and earning 6.5k...why must investors be scared of when JC has assured that we will not lose our money in this investment scheme...it is just the margin that is getting smaller maybe because now Fanbox has many investors...Knowledge Investor sounds better and it serves it purpose...

Thanks for the information
It is information that can benefit many

From the point of view of a visitor, the very word investment or investor is frightening.....

Booster is good.... Another suggestion is -----'Knowledge Banker'------ makes people curious to know what it is all about.

nice idea !

No No! Knowledge Investor is great. don't weaken the adjective with boost or booster. Investment is investment irrespective of what you're investing in. The only thing we need do is more orientation that the knowledge investor product is not like the stock markets that are crashing across the world. anyway i must hasten up and finish work on my blog outside fanbox because a change in nomenclature will affect it's feature. So again: please, please and please let's leave the Knowledge investor product with its current name.

for us people who have knowledge in it, it is fine
but yes, it is scary for those visitor, or target audience especially we are doing blogging contest in other blogging sites
they might think that if they invest they will loose money, though it is just one of the option to earn money here in fanBox
but investing is one of the BEST option too
but for me, knowledge investor is just okay
but if majority will say that we have to change it,
i think,it would be a great idea to follow it
thanks JC

I like investing more than boosting
i disagree with this change, if some body is scared from the word invest, u JC and many bloggers made it clear that word (invest) means here in FanBox : never to lose ur money
so no need to be scared, and no need to change
thanks

Yes, boosting is more appropriate than investing

Investment is a better term.

people tend to get scared when they associate it with the normal banks we deal with. Fanbox bank is the best thing there is out there. Keep the old terms. People just to need to educate themselves.

this is something that i feel needs definite consideration ... since, as said, "many" people think of invest as "also" the possibility of "losing" money. And, the Fanbox so-called, "investing", option is way better! So, i will "first" give it some serious thought and hope to return here to present my recommendation, very soon. ... Ofcourse, just throwing out many, many immediate brainstorms "can" be a better way to reach a viable conclusion, ... i.e. i think thats called "collaboration" ??

Boosting is not investing. in fanbox investing also one is not sure what will be the return on investment.

There s no idea to say...normally most of them did not understand what are the knowledge investor at all... only a few get know well for this item...for my opinion whatever it is , i am still forward to fanbox investment or "putting money" into Fanbox......*_*

I think no need to change, "Knowledge Investor" is the proper one. Let the world know that Fanbox has different approach in investing as a "RISK FREE" investing.

I agree but remember my dear friends CHANGE must be only for positive.

I am sure a lot of thought went into selecting the term, knowledge investor...my vote...leave as is.

I personally like the term 'Knowledge Investor' but we just have to be more vigilant about explaining to people how easy investing in FanBox is, that there is really no risk, like the word "investing' implies. Knowledge Boosting implies boosting or increasing knowledge, which doesn't really make sense for what we're trying to describe.

I find Knowledge Investor is a better word that is more appropriate to use.
