Lead generation is the process of attracting prospects to your business and increasing their interest through nurturing, all with the end goal of converting them into a customer. Some ways to generate leads are through job applications, blog posts, coupons, live events, and online content.
Said otherwise Lead generation is the process of generating consumer interest for a product or service with the goal of turning that interest into a sale. In online marketing this typically involves collecting a visitor's contact information (called a “lead”) via a web form.
Last 27 of May, Sebastien Khoo from Wellnex shared with Christine Lim, the secret of good lead generation. It all starts with a series of quick and easy steps. :
Matthias de Ferrieres sharing his views on Insurance innovation based on its PhD findings at The Asia InsurTech Podcast!
The Asia InsurTech Podcast spoke with Matthias de Ferrieres, the CEO at Wellnex, about the current InsurTech hype and what academic research says about it. Matthias holds a PhD in Entrepreneurial economics and published a dissertation with the title: “The Rise of the Digital Economy: Estimating the Impact of a New Generation of Entrepreneurs as Disruptive Entrants in the Insurance Industry in Singapore”.
The gap is not about the insurance per se, but about creating a better value propositions linked to the insurance industry. Matthias de Ferrieres explains in which way Wellnex responds to this value proposition: "Wellnex is like a pre-type of concierge on that by invitation only. Financial advisor are paying me to be able to give that free concierge or to their customer, to their leads, to their clients, okay, to their insured to their policyholder. So financial advisor, again, are my clients. They are paying me a fixed summons per year, to be able to generate leads, and they have a reason to create a leads to invite someone for a webinar or seminar, to push them to go for a screening to get home services. Because it will be free for the customer.
And they’re able to collect that as a financial adviser. And the insured is happy, because he has a free membership, where he can get health care service, up to 60% discount, he can get access to concierge that will help them to do to fix their garden, their their air conditioning, I mean any service, you name it. And this will be paid by the financial advisor.
So the question now is why it works. Wellnex has a very specific business model. A business model that makes people pay for what they get. The model is not design around commission, charge on transaction or something similar.
Talking about Venture Capital and entrepreneurship, Matthias de Ferrieres highlighted that first, not everyone can do what he does, because, he started with the support of AXA. Matthias de Ferrieres justified that he cannot raise money, because of his attitude, his personality which dont fit with the world of Fund Raising.
Also not everyone can can start from scratch because you need a minimum investment and try out. But the beauty of one you don’t have funding is you don’t have the same pressure. By not raising money, Matthias de Ferrieres confirms that he does not have the pressure other may have. For instance, he can can test and learn, he can adjust extremely fast without justifying to anyone else, why he is doing something.
Should be attached ot a VC, you need to spend a lot of time and energy to explain to justify why you are doing some things this way and not the other way. In addition most of the times those VCs have the same breed the same way of thinking than any other industry or VCs for the industry. Venture capitalists believe that a good startup is a company that demonstrate tit can acquire more clicks, more members, more time on the app. Revenue is often second. Yet, in insurance such model does not work.
Matthias de Ferrieres concluded that the power of Wellnex is the team and the fact that we are independent because it did not raise money and it has a profitable. business.

Matthias de Ferrieres, CEO of WELLNEX joined Asia InsurTech Podcast to share about insurance insights
Matthias de Ferrieres, CEO of WELLNEX joined Asia InsurTech Podcast with fellow entrepreneurs to share about the challenges of innovation in the insurance industry.
WELLNEX strives to make a difference in a very conservative environment that needs like any other industry to change, transform itself and become customer centric.
WELLNEX is all designed around, for and dedicated to that customer.
Matthias de Ferrieres engaged into a controversial discussion with Nicolas Faquet , and Gordon Tay on the difficulties of deploying sustainable solutions in the insurance industry.
The three, moderated by Michael Waitze for Asia InsurTech Podcast , shared about the challenges to successfully change an obsolete and slow to move industry.
Conservative yet monopolistic incumbents, drastic and complex regulations, product poor value perceptions, and consumer even poorer willingness to pay make extremely difficult insurtechs to truly innovate and even more difficult to sustain despite over funding by VCs.
In partnership with InsureTech Connect (ITC) Asia, we recorded a podcast panel with Gordon Tay, the Co-founder of SurerSG,
Matthias de Ferrieres the founder and CEO of WELLNEX , and Nicolas Faquet, the founder and CEO of Roojai.
2021 has been a record year for InsurTech, however, we have seen very little evidence of profitability yet. What are the challenges when starting an InsurTech startup and how important is sustainability in a VC world?
Fiza Tuahhaini from WELLNEX invited Doctor Errol Chan from Mount Elizabeth Hospitals, Singapore to discuss about Cataract and how to achieve Spectacle-Freedom and Better Vision!
It was done last Thursday 28 of April from 12h30 to 13h15 on video conference!
He pointed out that it is the commonest age-related eye condition amongst middle-aged persons and seniors in Singapore.
Dr Errol Chan discussed the symptoms of cataract, and how recent technological advances of modern cataract surgery allows it to be a safe and effective treatment for cataracts.
In the last 5 years, the development of advanced lens implant technology mean that all forms of refractive error (i.e., short-sight, far-sight, "lao hua", and astigmatism) can be corrected for, allowing patients to reduce their requirement on distance and/or reading glasses in order to see well. Current lens implants also allow for sharper vision.
Cataract surgery can be customized to suit each individual's occupational and lifestyle needs, enabling patients to improve their vision and quality of life according to their choices. In addition, sophisticated pre-surgical assessment devices, and computer-assisted surgical planning, allow for much better customization and precision in surgery. With these advances, patients do not necessarily need to wait until their cataracts are very severe and vision much reduced before having cataract surgery and enjoying good vision after.
