VISA9, Best Educational Consulting Services In India
Many Indian students want to go to American universities for higher education as most of the universities there are ranked among top education centres around the world. But getting an admission in any US college requires more than being accepted academically as a student because there are many legal and government aspects of travelling to America.
Despite the tough market situation, VISA9 Educational Consulting Services can get a pretty good number of visa acceptance rates when compared to other consultants in the market. They believe in quality not in quantity therefore, they don't send 200-300 visa applications and get only 10 visa approval like their competitors do. They focus on volume where they provide a good visa success rate. This is what makes them one of the best companies in recruiting students for US universities.
Purpose and Evolution of VISA9 From Day One
Studying abroad offers a unique opportunity to grow academically, professionally, and personally. There are several other benefits to studying abroad; however, there are also numerous challenges and one of the major one is financial issues. VISA9 has been helping students in every problem since their inception as they provide a list of 2000 universities in the US so that students and their parents can choose any according to their budget. They keep everything transparent so that there are no future problems for the students in foreign countries. VISA9 also helps students after they have reached their desired country as they have a network of students studying in the US, UK and Canada. Those students have family type relations with Sai Kumar Medi and VISA9.
At VISA9 educational consulting services, they walk with a student till the very end and make sure they understand the procedure involved regarding admissions to international universities. The counsellors have an excellent understanding of requirements of different universities. They know what these universities are looking for and will suggest universities that seek students with like your profile.
Idea Behind Starting VISA9 Educational Consulting Services
In the year 2005 when Sai Kumar Medi wanted to go to US for further studies, he faced many problems, therefore; he solved his issues all by himself. He further helped his friends as well which made him realize that more people like him want to get a high level of education in foreign countries and this realization leads him to start VISA9 Educational Consulting Services in the year 2009. Another problem is that most of the middle-class Indian family want their ward to focus on education and work side by side therefore; Sai Kumar Medi decided to help people who are facing similar problems.
Increasing Demand for Education Consulting Services in India
Abroad education consultants are a vital resource of information as well as advice for making the decision of going foreign countries to pursue your further studies.It is not an easy decision for both the student and the parents.
Therefore, the need for education consultants has been extremely felt by the students in the last decades. The main aim for VISA9 Educational Consulting Services is to provide specialized information regarding the country where the students would want to examine, the university they'd want to join along with course they would wish to opt to not only to the student living in India but also to those Indians who are living in other countries.
Building Reputation in the Industry Through Words of Mouth
Major marketing strategy followed by VISA9 is digital marketing and (WOM) word of mouth publicity which is the most powerful medium of marketing as only a well-satisfied client will refer to a product or a service to their friends.
"Word of mouth plays the biggest role" Sai Kumar Medi
Future Opportunities in the Consulting Industry
In the last few years, the industry has become more transparent because students, as well as parents, are well informed now so it is important to educate them whatever the norms of university are. Many consulting companies are in the habit of promising extra which they are not able to deliver that eventually results in unsatisfied customers. VISA9 makes sure that they provide a transparent consulting service which helps both them and students in the long run.
"We need to explain them very clearly whatever those universities require to avoid future conflicts" quotes by Sai Kumar Medi
Facing and Overcoming Challenges
A major challenge that VISA9 Educational Consulting Services had to face in the past was the problem of fake documentation. As many students submit their fraud documents which cause a trust issue between VISA9 and universities. Many consultants in the market temper with the documents so that their client gets the admission but this is strictly against the policy of VISA9 Educational Consulting Services as these practices can get you to foreign universities but it can also get you in trouble if they run a verification process.
Business Model for a Successful Name
VISA9 Educational Consulting Services helps a student in the entire Visa process like, filling up applications, preparing financial statements, and also guidance and training for mock interviews and much more. They are regularly advised by the consulates about the latest Visa documentation and rules, and have high VISA success rates.
The best policy before the consulate office is to be truthful. There are always misconceptions that a marriage or being the only son or individual relatives and friends in that country could be a ground for either giving or not giving the visa. The most important points that are looked into, at the time of visa are that you have sufficient funds to execute your studies and you are not a prospective immigrant. Good preparation always helps a student to reply promptly and confidently. They are very proud that because of this thorough preparation, VISA9 Educational Consulting Services have been able to help students in achieving their objective.
Massive opportunities for entrepreneur
There is a massive requirement of people in the consulting industry and anyone can venture into it but one thing that every entrepreneur needs to understand is that a consultant's job is to consult nothing more, nothing less. It's that simple. There's no magic formula or secret that makes one consultant more successful than another one.
Educating Consultants is the Most Needed Change
Currently, what most of the consultants do is they recruit fresher from MBA with no experience in the industry, they train them but there is no serious study involved. Therefore, a major change that needs to happen in the consulting industry is that the consultants should be given proper training before handling a client.
What's Next For VISA9 Educational Consulting Services
Till now they were focusing on the students as they have educated several students and parents as well about the criteria, how to live, programs they need to study according to their budget. But their goal for the future is to educate other consultants in the market as VISA9 wants to build a community of consultants where everyone knows how to lead the process so as many students can get benefit from it.
Sai Kumar Medi quoted "What separates a good consultant from a bad consultant is a passion and drive for excellence. And yes, a good consultant should be knowledgeable about the subject he or she is consulting in."
