The Present business scenario is totally consumer oriented. Every company faces stiff
competition from its competitors, each provides the best product at competitive rates. As a
result customers have lot of choices to get the best with the least cost. To face this
competition, it is very important to know customer‟s behavior, there needs, preference and
also the motivation factors.

Marketing with its client has given an edge over the other service providers.
This project also throws lights on the working frame of broking service. This industry is on
the spree to adopt the latest technology and thus any player has to be dynamic in this
industry. The comparative analysis done in this project show how keynote has built
competitive edge on some ground. The Project help you understand the strategies of this
industry right from De-Mat to Trading, Margin to analysis and risk to return. I hope this
project prove to be beneficial for the Company and also give the reader a through idea about
the industry. I learnt a lot through out the process of undertaking this project report.
To fulfill my task I had to visit the client personally who are dealing in share trading with this
company or some other broking house.
For this project I was assign the target of accounts, for which I first generated the database
and made appointment with them and convert them in as traders of
Limited, for this I have to convince them and explain the concept and collect the Trading
Form and a cheque.
After going through the exercise I found that Keynote is one of the upcoming companies in
the Marketing of financial Product, as the credibility of other companies are going down in
the market and it is the right time for the Keynote Capitals to built its reputation in the
market. The Main reason for Keynote capitals low market share is because of local brokers in
the market which a charging very less Margin as initial investment for Trading in Stock
But No doubt it is having lots of scope to grow in the financial Market, and I wish it is having
a shining future in the coming years.

Introduction to Relationship marketing
Relationship Marketing has an aim of building mutually satisfying long term relationship with its
clients in order to earn and retain their business. Marketer accomplishes this by promising and
delivering high quality product and services at fair price to the other parties over time. Relationship
marketing build longs strong economical, technical and social ties among the parties. The ultimate
outcome of relationship marketing is the building of unique company assets called the marketing
network .A Marketing network consists of the company and its supporting stakeholders (Clients,
Employees, ad agencies and others) with whom it has built mutually profitable business relationship.
Relationship marketing : Organizational pervasive approach
Relationship marketing is an ongoing process of continued interactions with customer through
multiple touch points (promotional campaigns, Employees,mailers,publicity, telephonic conversation
etc.) and channels (communication channel, service channel, Distribution channel) so as to build a
bond betweencustomer and the organization. It is an “Organization pervasive approach” To
establish long term relations resulting in customer loyalty and step ahead generatingcustomer
Advocacy. The Emphasis is not on acquiring new customers but on keeping existing customer happy
and satisfied and resulting in an expanded customer base.
Principles of relationship marketing
1 - Know your potential customers.
Before you start building your business; you need to determine your targeted market and
know your potential customers. Learn how to know your customers to develop effective
tactics for delivering your message to them.
Only by knowing your customers' wants and needs you can successfully grow your business
and be totally customer-oriented. In order to tailor your marketing and advertising strategies
to appeal to the tastes and interests of your market, you must first identify your customer.
Relationship is not only based on knowing who your visitors are, but on knowing your
customers' and prospects' specific needs.
2 - Show your expertise.
The majority of business people, never completely and clearly display their knowledge to
potential customers. Show to your targeted market you are the leader in your industry and
they will follow you.
People like to learn about your experience. They like to follow the expert's steps to avoid
mistakes and reach success the easy way with less investment in time and money.
3 - Start a dialog to establish trust.
Set up a continuing dialog to establish trust. Trust is a vital step to building long-time
relationship. This dialog should starts as soon as your visitors submit information along with
their email addresses. This explains their interest in your business. In return, you give them
what promised when they subscribed and keep contacts at periodic intervals by sending
quality information to your subscribers.
4 - Follow up
Dialog leads to follow-up. Hook your subscribers with your follow up messages series. Set up
a series of follow up messages to send quality information to every new subscriber.
Professionalism is the key to successful relationship.
The main purpose of follow up is to remain visible to your subscribers so, when the need
arise and your prospect wants to make a purchase, your product will be the first one the
subscriber thinks of.
5 - Offer good customer service..
- Answer your prospects' requests as soon as you receive them.
- Treat your customers right. Even if you offer the best products or services,
most customers will evaluate your business by how they were treated while
doing business with you. For that reason, it's important to take care of your
customers and give them the best product or service they want.
By providing great customer service to the people you do business with, you will get
customers coming back to you again and again to buy your products or services.
6 - Educate your subscribers.
Put at your customers disposal manuals, frequently asked question (FAQ) web page, articles,
etc... to help them learn how to use your product or service perfectly. Educate your
subscribers to help them build interest and loyalty for your business.
Lifetime clients want you to be their trusted advisor. The more you educate your customers
by offering them a variety of options, the greater your chance to earn their lifetime business.
Education strengthens relationship marketing with clients.
7 - Sell or recommend only quality products.
Sell quality products that have value, plus offer a guarantee and stand behind it. One of the
quickest ways to destroy a business relationship is selling poor quality products and not
standing behind what you promise.
Advantages of relationship marketing
Retaining customers for the long-term offers many benefits. The aim is for the company to
obtain life time custom. Some of the benefits of relationship marketing include:
Loyal customers will recommend your business to others, thus expanding your business for
Loyal customers are willing to try some of your new products, because they trust you.
Customers will be willing to pay more for your services/products if there are adjustments in
pricing because they are loyal to you and trust your services/products.
Loyal customers will tell you about problems with your products/services enabling to
improve your products/services.
The ultimate benefit will be an increase sales, market share and dominance.
Customer relationship management: a tool for relationship marketing
While relationship marketing is a sales and marketing concept, CRM refers to the tools
used to carry out the concept. Relationship marketing is implemented as a strategy and
includes activities such as identifying long-term sales and retention goals, public relations,
marketing and advertising campaigns.
CRM includes the operational tasks that support the relationship marketing strategy.
Acitivities may include gathering data about the customers, then organizing and analyzing
it to create target customer profiles. CRM data is also effective in finding opportunities to
create special offers to reward long-time customers for their loyalty, further building the
Relationship marketing seeks to increase sales by building trust and engaging customers.
Using a CRM system effectively allows a salesperson to quickly and consistently deliver
what customers are looking for with each and every interaction, because their preferences
and buying history are recorded. The system benefits the customers, because they see the
business "knows" them. CRM systems coordinate, automate and deliver online and offline
advertising and marketing activities that help build the long-term customer relationships
that are crucial to a successful relationship marketing
Relationship marketing in capital market
The importance of relationships in the financial services sector has long been appreciated.
This is because of the nature of the industry, which typically involves significant amounts of
money, risk and confidential information handled by services which consumers may or may
not buy. Contemporary research in the financial services sector, especially in banking, has
advocated relationship marketing (RM) as a key option in gaining customer loyalty.
Moreover, in high-level financial services, the relationship itself has been found to be a major
factor in satisfaction and customer loyalty and customer relationships are built largely
through service encounters.
RM can, but need not, be directed towards all customers of a financial institution. As,
investment across all customer segments will not yield similar returns RM is often directed
only at the most profitable areas . Therefore, it is important for marketers to attend to the
process of building long-term relationships, commitment and trust from different investor
In the financial context, it is better to discuss the details of products and services face-to-face
because advice needs to incorporate the specific needs of customers and confidentiality is
essential. More often than not, financial industries‟ success is based on creating long-term
relationships and providing ongoing services to investors.
informationand operational knowledge derives from informal face-to-face interaction, with
the remaining coming from documentation, and that tacit knowledge, based on personal
experience and observations, is essential for an organisation‟s success . Face-to-face contacts
develop relationships and facilitate customers‟ trust of an organisation
face-to-face techniques for building relationships:
1) Prepare for face-to-face exchange thoroughly and aim to understand real needs and wants.
2) Ensure the process for face-to-face meeting is well understood by both parties.
3) Be wary about using conditional offers at a meeting.
4) Avoid posturing. While it isimportant that both parties understand where they are in the
marketplace, overemphasis merely wastes valuable face-to-face time.
5) Establish the key issues to be discussed early during the meeting. Finally,
6) Support individuals actively at the meeting – this communicates genuine empathy and
promotes understanding of important issues.
personal feelings are also an important component of relationship development.
Not only loyal customers, but also loyal owners, influence marketing success. Marketing
plays an important role in creating trust and long-term relationship.
RM in brokerage firms:
RM was an effective instrument in gaining customer loyalty in the securities brokerage
industry and most local brokerages implemented RM activities in a similar manner, but
concentrated on different areas according to their dominant customer type. That is, companies
focusing on individual investors tended to give greater attention to relationship-building
activities than to providing information, constructing closer relationships with customers by
using the „personal touch‟.
The study also identified the most influential factors impacting loyalty for brokerages
Firstly, there were information services, for example research papers and newsletters,
secondly, understanding different customers‟ investment behaviours, for example those of
long- and short-term investors and institutional and retail investors and lastly, providing onestop services, by offering all products available on the stock market. These findings offer new
knowledge for professional practice. In response to brokerage firms treat their customers
differently as all local securities brokerage firms in SET treated theircustomers differently,
depending on the type of business received, for example, higher volume investors received
more attention and services than lower volume.
Role and responsibilities of relationship managers in brokerage firm:
1. Responsible for new client acquisition, building new relationships and increasing
depth in existing relationships with clients
2. Will be responsible for primarily selling Equity based investment products.
3. Responsible for identifying customer needs, assessing their risk appetite and
providing them investment options.
4. Responsible for achieving targets as assigned by the organization on a monthly basis
Episodes and Bonds in Investor Relationship Marketing:
The purpose of this study is to describe,analyses and understand investor relationship
marketing both theoretically and empirically. By investor relationship marketing, the
continuous, planned, purposeful, and sustained management activity which identifies,
establishes, maintains, and enhances mutually beneficial long term relationships between the
companies and their current and potential investors, and the investment experts serving them.
Short term investor episodes initially form the basis of long term interaction between the
partners in the investor community. Various investor bonds of attraction, trust, and
commitment may evolve. Finnish listed companies have laid down their main emphasis on
improvements both in meetings with stock analysts and lately also in interim reports. Annual
and interim reports are the principal sources of written information for the Finnish stock
analysts .Information in several oral forms is also vital for the stock analysts. Significant
improvements can be found in the contents of interim reports while some weakening can be
found in the information episodes of personal appointments and news in media. It can be
concluded that Finnish listed companies have realized the necessity of investor relationship
marketing and consequently many of them have activated their reporting and disclosing
practices. The most advanced companies belongto the metal and forestry industries and they
are also listed on foreign stock exchanges. It is evident that new and coming issues to
shareholders, potential listings abroad and international capital acquisition needs may
function as critical events and driving forces for the companies in activating investor
relationship marketing in order to create, maintain and enhance attraction, trust and
commitment in investment .
Research:Research in common terms refers to a search for knowledge. It can define as a scientific and
systematic search for pertinent information on a specific topic. In fact, research is an art of
Research is an academic activity and as such the term should be used in a technical sense. It
comprises defining and redefining problems, formulating hypothesis or suggested solution;
collecting, organizing and evaluating data; making deductions and reaching conclusion; and
at last carefully testing the conclusion to determine whether they fit the formulating
Types of Research:

is the simplest type of research. It is more specific than an explanatory study, as it has
focus on particular aspect of the problem studied. It is designed to get her descriptive
information and provide information for formulating more sophisticated studies. Data
are collected by using one or more appropriate method, observation, interviewing and
Type of Data Used:There are basically two types of Data
Primary Data:Primary Data is first hand information that the researcher collects. It helps in collecting useful
and most accurate information that is needed for the researcher to do his research.

Sample Size :45(forty-five): 33 males
The Basic idea of sampling is that by selecting some of the element in a population in
order to get first hand information of study.
There are two type of sampling probability Sampling & Non probability sampling and in this
research, Researcher has taken probability sampling.
Probability sampling is most commonly associated with survey based research where you
need to make inferences from your sample about a population to answer your research
questions or to meet your objectives. The process of probability sampling can be divided into
Identify a suitable frame based on your research question or objectives
2. Decide on a suitable sample size
3. select the most appropriate sampling technique and select the sample
4. Check that the sample is representative of the population
The objective of probability sampling depends on the research question & on the objective.
Subsequently I need to have face to face contact with respondents
Simple random sampling
Simple random sampling involve in selecting sample at random from the sampling frame
using either random no. table. In my research I had use random selection of respondent who
used to come for the trading purpose in KEYNOTE CAPITAL office it is most accurate and
easily accessible form of sampling method
Convenience or haphazard sampling involve selection haphazardly those cases that are
easiest to obtain for your sample, Such as the person interviewed at random in a shopping
center for the interview programmed. The sample selection process is continued until your
required sample size has been reached. Although this techniques of sampling is widely used it
is prone to bias and influence that are beyond your control. I has selected convenience
sampling as some of the respondent are my clients only.

How would rate the services provided by your broker?
Chi- Square test is used to determine is there any significant difference between the services
provided by the broker house. Null hypothesis is tested at 0.10 level of significance Our
Problem can be summarized.
Ho: Null Hypothesis
H1: Alternative Hypothesis
Alpha = 0.10 Level of significance
Ho: There are no significant differences between the services provided by the broker
H1: There are significant differences between the services provided by the broker house
Degree of Freedom:
6 Degree of freedom
Chi- square Formula:
The table value of 0.10 at 6 degree of freedom is 10.645 and
the calculated value is 6.44. Since the calculated value is less then the table value we can
conclude that the Null hypothesis is right.
I.e. “there is no significant difference between the services provided by the broker
In this survey most of the questionnaires are filled from brokerage houses where
clients sit on the terminal & trade in the stocks. As the data collected shows that
people who mostly invest in the market are businessmen & service class person who
don‟t have enough time to keep continuous watch on the market fluctuation so they
need regular assistance from their relationship manager who is assigned to them so
every company is suggested to enforce their relationship managers to stay in contact
with their clients.
There are some NO answer or respondent gives bad as response in this survey
because many time clients might have bad experience in trading so the relationship
manager in that brokerage firm must take some extra care for them.
Bad experience of client in the brokerage house who doesn‟t want to trade in the
stock market he might be afraid of losses or due to lack of resources.the relationship
manager has to give a proper assistance & dedication to that person so that he can
make himself to trade in the stocks.
As technology increases most of the people have less time to spend on the other
activities than their core business so most of the clients prefer online trading so they
can put their bids whenever they want as 24*7. In the case of online trading clients are
not need to be provided any kind of assistance from their relationship manager but if
the dedicated relationship manager provide them a good assistance can put that
relationship manager & that organization apart from their competitors.
even after the presence of internet some people like to trade through offline mode
reasons might be lack of knowledge or cost sensitive as offline product is used to
being at lower cost so here in offline that dedicated relationship manager has to be in
contact with his client
. Most of the people look for moderate return because of presence of risk well as the
age group changes the risk-taking factor as age increase people started investing in
bonds where a fixed return is possible.
As the data shows most of the people were satisfied with their brokers because they
are giving them profits on their investment & they were ready to pay more to their
brokers if they get some extra services.
Limitation of study
Time spent in terms of data collection was less as most of the time we are busy to
complete our target
Non availability of related people.
Awareness level about the company is very low among the clients.
Market was too volatile during the period of research.
Sample size is small so sampling error may be committee

Equity and Mutual funds in India people have accepted it as one of the major investment avenue. As
people have entered in this particular investment avenue they have lost their money because of
movement in the market which is below the par value and this has shaken the faith of investor in
this particular avenue. Another reason for low investment in this sector is due to country most of the
companies not performing well and also due to the scams that are taking place frequently Once
people know about the benefit offered by it, Capital market will become one the sought after
As far as other product marketed by KEYNOTE is concerned they have a ready market. The only thing
which is needed to focus on is that they should have a strong marketing strategy so that prompt
