Meet Yolt Guides: Your step-by-step to money empowerment

At Yolt, we’re on a mission to empower each and every person with their money. We believe that knowledge is power, and getting in the know starts with having the right tools.

That was the vision when we first set out to build Yolt, and that mantra, coupled with the feedback and suggestions from our vocal community, has driven our development from day one.

Now, 18 months later, we’re excited to announce this latest addition to the Yolt ecosystem: Yolt Guides!

So, what are Guides, exactly?

As we said, we believe money confidence starts with having the right tools, but communication, and actually talking about money, is just as important! So, we sat down with some of our users and talked. We had some great chats on their approaches to money management and what more they’d like from Yolt. We learned a lot, but a few things kept coming up:

1. Our users have busy lives, and they’re looking for a stress-free, keep-it-simple approach to money management

2. Life goals play a big role in our users’ everyday lives

From saving for a house to budgeting better for life events like Christmas or holidays, goals kept coming up. But everyone’s goals are different. If we were going to build a new feature, we wanted it to focus on harnessing the skills to reach your goals, instead of any one goal in particular— at least for now!

That’s where Guides come in. Guides make it easier than ever to benefit from Yolt’s features by breaking them down into handy, step-by-step check lists. Coupled with quick tips and articles, they’re not just about getting more out of Yolt, but building the healthy habits and money skills to make the most of life.

“We built Guides so we could empower our users to achieve their goals. By talking with our community, we learned that many of our users are highly goal-oriented. That’s why we’ve bundled relevant app features and content together. We’re really excited to deliver this new Yolt feature, built hand-in-hand with our community.”

We decided to kick things off with two Guides: Getting Started and Master your Monthly Spend

Getting Started caters to both new users looking to get stuck into Yolt, and to anyone looking for a quick refresh on what we believe are Yolt’s most useful features. It’s really about getting those easy wins that help you get the most out of your money!

Master your monthly spend is all about strengthening your money habits so you can take your money further, month to month. Changing habits starts with little steps, and we’re especially excited about this Guide, built with lots of user feedback.

What’s next?

We’re already hard at work, planning and building the next batch of Guides. We can’t give anything away just yet, but keep an eye on your Actions tab over the coming months for some Guides suited to the season.

But this is just the beginning. As we said, Guides are the result of months’ worth of user feedback and testing with people like you in the Yolt community – and we want to keep it that way! Which Guides would you like to see in Yolt? Join the conversation and tweet us at @getyolt.
