FrontPage Service Listing Guidelines

A visitor to your service looks at the description of your service to decide whether to subscribe. Please follow the guidelines below to put your best foot forward and maximize your subscribers. The idea should be to describe your service in precise terms and give the impression of a professionally run service.

Service Name

  • A quick glance should tell a visitor what to expect from your service. Keep the service name short and simple eg. Bank Nifty Options, Crude Futures, Cash Intraday.
  • Do NOT include plan duration or plan amount in the service name.
  • DO NOT WRITE YOUR SERVICE NAME IN ALL CAPS. IT LOOKS LOUD AND JUVENILE LIKE THIS LINE.

Service URL

  • Service URL will be pre-filled as the service name. Make sure there are no typos when you create a service URL. It cannot be changed.

Service Description

This is your best opportunity to stand out & the most important piece that a potential subscriber decides to understand whether this service is for her.

  • Describe what the service offers in detail but keep it to the point. A one-liner may look unprofessional and is a lost opportunity for you.
  • Add a minimum investment amount so buyers can decide depending on how much capital they have.
  • Add the average holding period of your recommendations.
  • Add how many recommendations to expect in a week.
  • If possible, do explain what is the methodology of your work. Or try to differentiate between others who
  • Add disclaimers if you are not an authorized person to give recommendations.
  • DO NOT WRITE THE SERVICE DESCRIPTION IN ALL CAPS. IT IS HARD TO READ AND  MAKES A BAD IMPRESSION.
  • Do not use words like sure-shot or promise absolute certainty of quick and disproportional returns.

Last but not least, do a spelling check before updating the service description. Example of a good service listing below:

FAQs: Trade Tracking on FrontPage

Q. How does trade tracking work?

A. Simple, you submit a trade with target, stoploss, entry price (optional), timeframe, buy/sell specified on a particular instrument. FrontPage tracks the market price for the instrument and keeps updating your trade. Once the trade meets target or hits stoploss or timeframe expires the P&L is calculated based on the LTP at the time and updated in the trade card.

Q. What kinds of instruments are currently tracked?

A. FrontPage currently tracks cash, futures & options traded on NSE/NFO listed equities & MCX listed commodities. If you have a suggestion for a certain type of asset that you want to be tracked, please do contact @frontpagesupport.

Q. What can I do with a trade once posted?

A. The following options are available via the update trade button in the trade cards:

  • Modify Entry Price: If you do use an entry price for your trade, and the trade hasnt ‘entered’ or isn’t active yet, you can modify the entry price to LTP or any other price.
  • Exit: You can exit a trade at any point after it is submitted. The P&L of the trade will be calculated using the LTP at the time of exit. You can use this option if you want to book your profits or losses earlier than target or stoploss.
  • Extend Target: If you believe that your trade can run more for higher targets, you can use this option. e.g. from 110 to 115. Note: you can’t reduce the target.
  • Trail Stoploss: You can use this option to trail your stoploss to secure profit. Note: you can’t reduce the stoploss.
  • Extend Timeframe: You can increase the timeframe of a trade at any point. Note: For now, P&L will only be calculated once a trade exit or breaches the target or stoploss.

Q. What happens to a trade that does not “enter” i.e. entry price is not crossed?

A. Entry price is optional. If you do not specify an entry price, the trade becomes active immediately on submission at LTP. If you do give an entry price, a trade does not become active unless the entry price is reached at some later point. If the entry price is not reached before the close of the market on a day, the trade is forcibly expired. For such trades, the P&L will be zero. If that trade was for a longer duration, you will have to submit it again on the next market day.

Q. Why should I submit trades instead of just posting it as plain text market view like earlier?

A. Trades are credible because they can be tracked. If you are a good trader, your reputation and visibility will get a significant boost because of your trade performance. Conversely, while plain text market view may still be published, the community will likely perceive them to be of dubious intent.

Q. How does trade performance impact my reputation?

A. Going forward, the performance of trades will play a crucial part in reputation scores. The system (algorithmically) will add or reduce your reputation based on the percentages of profit or loss. FrontPage will keep tweaking the weightage given to trade performance in reputation scores & it may also vary across forums and other factors.

Do not get perturbed if you incur a few losses on a bad day and see a drop in reputation. Everybody makes losses but it is consistent good performance over a long period of time that will be reflected in the reputation score.

Q. Why should I care about my reputation on FrontPage?

A. FrontPage relies on reputation scores to recommend market experts to new users for following or for discovering paid services. So, the higher your reputation, the more likely is for you to get new followers. Also, reputation scores are visible against your profile, and it is likely for a new user to trust you more should you have a higher reputation.

 

Referral FAQ

 

Note: Sharing your referral links or codes in FrontPage forums is not permitted and can lead to permanent account suspensions.

Q. I am a service provider, how do I turn ON referral for my services?

A. Just visit your services console. Go to Global Service Settings > Turn on “Allow referral by audience” > Fill the referrer’s incentive & the new subscriber’s discount > Click Save. That’s it.

Q. How does the referrer’s incentive work?

A. Referrer’s incentive percentage is the amount of money a referrer would make if they referred a new subscriber to you. Let’s say, you have a service with a plan that costs INR 1000. If you set up 20% as the referrer’s incentive, they would make 20% of INR 1000 = INR 200 if you get a new subscriber via their referral link or code.

Q. How does the referral (new subscriber)’s discount work?

A. Referral’s discount percentage is the amount of money they would save on their first purchase of any of your services. Let’s say, the new subscriber who came via a referral link subscribes to one of your services with a plan that costs INR 1000. If you set up 25% as the referral’s discount, they will have to pay only INR 750 on their first purchase.

Q. How to refer someone to a service provider’s service?

A. Just visit a service provider’s profile (who has already set up a referral from the services console), tap the “Generate Referral Link” button. You can share this link with anyone. Someone who taps this link can subscribe to any plan of any service offered by the service provider.

Q. Which service provider can I refer?

A. You are free to refer anyone although we recommend you only refer experts that you have personally experienced or know to be good so your referral (friend) has a great experience.

Q. How do I know if one of my referrals subscribed to some service?

A. Once a qualified referral subscribes to service and makes a payment, you will be notified via FrontPage. Also, you can visit the Credits page/screen to see all the referrals you have earned.

Q. How do I withdraw the money that I make via referral?

A. Easy. Any money that you earn via referring someone is stored in FrontPage as Credits. You can withdraw these credits anytime by visiting the Credits page/screen > Withdraw Credits > Enter you UPI VPA > Fill the amount > Withdraw. Note: In order to withdraw credits, you should have a minimum of 500 as your credit balance.

Q. Who can avail the referral discount?

A. There are certain rules that apply for referrals. Referrers should also take note – you earn the incentive only if your referral fulfils the following terms & conditions:

  • Referral has to be a new subscriber to a service provider’s services. If you have purchased a service from a service provider earlier, you cannot use a second discount.
