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

thank you

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.

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...

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

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 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.
