Capital Mind Sees 1 Million PageViews in 2013!

We’ve had a great year at Capital Mind, in 2013. As I moved to convert the blog into a full-scale business, things improved dramatically on the number of posts and viewership. We scaled to over a million visitors in the year, according to statcounter!


More than 75% of visitors were from India and then from the US, UK and so on. Visitors from 188 countries visited Capital Mind this year.

The most popular post of the year has been: Is the Reliance Apple iPhone5 Offer Worth It? Which probably goes to say there are more people bothered about expensive mobile phones than about finance or macroeconomics that I write about!

Earlier posts remain popular, specially the one on HDFC Crest ULIP that was being mis-sold as a fixed deposit.

I wrote a long series of posts about the NSEL scam. This things has still not been unearthed.

Also, 2013 saw the launch of Capital Mind Premium in November. We’re seeing some excellent traction now, and really looking forward to the next year.

What’s next?

We get better and we get bigger. Not in physical size, that would be disastrous.

But in content and quality and timeliness and relevance and all those things that make the world go round a little bit faster. I’m building a team in Bangalore, and we want to bring to you these things:

  • Great content and analysis, on money, macroeconomics, portfolios and others.
  • Detailed macroeconomic and derivatives data, on your web and mobile, whenever you want.
  • Webinars, both Free and Premium, on stuff that you really want to hear.
  • Brilliant visualization of data where you can interact with your data.

What is also important is what we won’t do:

  • Political commentary. I know it’s an election year, and I don’t like most parties, but our commentary will be restricted to the economic impact of the political deal.
  • Personal Financial Advise: I hate to say this but this doesn’t really ignite my passion. If I build a team to do this, it will not be in 2014.
  • Stock tips: We’ll tell you what we’re buying, in Capital Mind Premium. We can’t really tell you what you should.
  • Arrogance. If we ever get high-handed, please feel free to beat us down. I never delete or reject comments other than pointless trolling and spam.

Have a fantastic 2014, folks! Meet you in the new year. Stay tuned for more useful content. And most importantly, tell us what you want to read about!

Congrats on your success…. keep up the good work….


Congratulations Deepak. As a long time reader I must say that the growth is well deserved.

BTW what’s with – “Have a fantastic 2013, folks!!!” – I guess someone started boozing too early eh!!!

Wish you a happy new year and looking forward to better than excellent commentary from Capital Mind.

Apologies ;) Not enough proofreading!

And thanks, plus I hope you have a great 2014 as well!

There is a personal touch to most of your posts. (Earlier that was more.) I come to your blog to read such “WTF” stuffs.

Hi Vivek, more to come! Thanks for the heads up!

Hearty Congratulations Deepak!! May You achieve further success in all your efforts in 2014 and beyond. Your articles are a cut above the rest and the quantitative analysis backing up your conclusions is something I really find enriching. Your normal content itself is ‘premium’ so, you should re-name your premium content as ‘super premium’

Thanks Ravi :) And wish you a great 2014 as well!

Heartiest Congratulations and a Very Happy New Year to you. May you, your team and climb greater heights in 2014. Enjoying your posts on a daily basis, and happy to be a premium subscriber–it’s well worth the money; in fact, it is a value investment for me since I sincerely believe our subscription price was far less than its intrinsic value. With all the best compliments…

Thanks Rajat! Indeed honoured!

Congrats for converting CapitalMind into a full-time business, Deepak. Wishing you the very best in 2014!

Many thanks Santosh. 2014 will be fun!

Congratulation for such a wonderful performance !!!!!!!
Wish you a lot more sucess in Year 2014, especially in subscription based venture.

Many thanks Lalit!

All the best, Deepak!

Thanks Bekxy! Best to you too, hope it’s a great year ahead.

Congratulation Deepak, Wish you very happy and prosperous new year.

Thanks mate! Gotta speak with you :)

Congratulations Deepak. The growth is well deserved. Wish you a very happy and prosperous new year 2014 as well.

First of all Congrats.

I am sure that the premium guys can afford a good portfolio manager we cant, so it would be nice if you can share what you are buying (Stocks) to the normal and regular readers.

And yes, we will take the responsibility of reviewing and marking a decision, and will never blame you. At lest we have a starting point.


Keep up the good work.

I am zero on stocks and finance, trying to read your blog posts and getting tons of info.
I really liked your posts on Term vs LIC insurances,
how much to save for retriement and how,
why not to buy real estate for rent
to highlight few..
