What is forex marketing?
The global foreign exchange market delay records trading volumes that exceed 6 trillion USD, and it thus justifiably considered one of the most dynamic and exciting markets in the world. The forex market is huge, highly lucrative, decentralized and incredibly liquid and it keeps on growing and attracting new traders as well as new brokers on a daily basis.
Though a big chunk of daily forex trading volumes is carried out by large global banks, the online retail part of the market is both lucrative as it is attractive and new players are attracted to it constantly. This is where forex marketing comes into play as it pertains to capturing a slice of this specific market segment, through the effective use of online marketing efforts, including SEO. Moreover, forex marketing entails the devising of specific marketing strategies that aim towards the creation of a recognizable forex brand based on a strong, unified business model. Such solid strategies also ensure the longevity of the endeavor and help it overcome any difficulties or hurdles that may come its way.
The challenges of forex marketing
The forex world being what it is, it is unescapable that its high reward prospects go hand in hand with the associated inherent high risk. Highs and lows, ups and downs, fluctuations and volatility are on the menu on a daily basis and it is no surprise that many traders are lured to forex trading exactly due to this nature of the game. This being said and since they are all aware of the inherent high risk, all those involved in the world of forex trading, be they traders or brokers are naturally more suspicious and hesitant when taking trading related decisions, since they are weary and more reserved knowingly, being completely award that forex trading equals risk.
Since forex market participants therefore are naturally inclined to be reserved and weary, the only way you can gain genuine traction with such an audience is through the gradual building of mutual trust that will result in loyalty. And since you know for a fact that your trader customers will come under attack by other industry players, it is crucial to have such deep-rooted bonds with them otherwise it will be impossible to retain them. But, how is this done? How can you earn their trust and convince them to remain loyal? This is not an easy task or one you can attain overnight. On the contrary building your rapport and trust with your target audience requires you to first establish in an undisputed manner the credibility of your brand.
Building credibility is not at all easy and simple, especially since in the case of forex brokerage services, some generic social media advertising and gimmicks will not suffice to penetrate the market and engage potential customers as is often the case when promoting other types of products such as perhaps apparel and accessories. To set yourself apart from the rest and be effectively differentiated to attract attention, it is imperative that you deploy clever, smart and purposely designed forex SEO and digital marketing services.

Our Unique Approach for helping forex brokers
Every successful digital marketing and SEO effort centers around delivering the right message, to the right audience in the right manner. In today’s highly competitive forex landscape following hard-selling techniques of the past will most probably drive potential clients away, rather than bring them close. Irrespective of your size as a broker or your years in the market, successfully marketing your brand today depends on how effectively you engage in content marketing, if you manage to create a viral video or a popular blog. We consider ourselves real experts in the field of forex content marketing and would love to have the chance to help you benefit from our knowledge and experience. To help illustrate our argument, here’s a few tips on how your forex content marketing can be successful:
- Create content that is lead-oriented and demand-centric
Any content you publish online as a forex broker should have a specific purpose and serve a need. In this case, its purpose should be to attract, acquire, engage and retain current and aspiring forex traders. If your content doesn’t address these needs, then publishing it is useless. To ensure it serves its purpose then, your content should facilitate lead generation, enhance brand awareness and, of course, increase website traffic. Examples of such purposeful content on a forex brokerage site would be guidelines on how your clients could make the most of their trades, by explaining what tactics they could employ or providing them with market insights to help them make wise trading decisions.
- Create Brand Related Blog Posts
The systematic creation of blog posts that are based on proper keyword searches and are thus targeted towards the right audience, can do wonders in terms of your ranking on search engine results pages, as well as for the awareness, credibility and visibility of your brand and the ensuing increase in your website traffic.
“A well-written blog is a very powerful tool that lets you do anything from changing the world to sharing your services”
Including a blog section on your forex website is not difficult and you could use the WordPress CMS for doing so. If you do decide to use this tool, remember that the purpose of the blog is not to create a venue you will fill with self-praising, but rather with accurate, credible, informative, useful and appealing material that will give your visitors the reason, motive and justification to actually become your leads.
- Properly profile your ideal target client
A common mistake made by many forex brokers in terms of their digital marketing efforts and especially their content marketing creation is that they fail to adequately and clearly identify and create a profile of their ideal, target clients, i.e. those that their content is intended to serve and please. If you don’t adequately understand what these potential clients need and want to read, you will not be able to give it to them. In short, when engaging in forex content marketing you need to always ensure that you create, publish and distribute content that is specifically and purposefully crafted exactly for those people who want to buy and sell currencies.
- Optimize all landing pages
Landing pages are in today’s online world what calling cards used to be in the past for any entrepreneur, and their usage together with content marketing should be pursued as they can bring about remarkable results. Your landing pages are the one’s people will view to decide whether they will proceed to trade with you. As such, their content needs to be optimized and speak volumes about your brand and commitment to quality forex trading. All messages contained in your landing pages should be credible and follow the principle “show, don’t just tell”. The use of poor language and misleading headlines and slogans should be avoided, and the focus should be on content and language that enables readers to experience the messages to be conveyed through actions rather than words. Winning over new clients is made much easier through a professionally and effectively designed and filled landing page that does not include annoying notifications and pop ups and contains clever and meaningful calls to action in more than one instances.
- Produce and Utilize Whitepapers
One of the newer, most innovative trends in the field of content marketing, which seems to be particularly effective is the creation and dissemination of whitepapers that aim to educate your audience about a particular problem or promote a specific technology that has emerged in the market. Whitepapers being an extended version of a presentation containing comprehensive and authoritative information on a topic, producing and disseminating them helps you gain visibility and exposure for your forex brand, as well as gaining trust and reliability in the eyes of potential customers.
Innovation needs to be part of your culture. Consumers are transforming faster than we are, and if we don’t catch up, we’re in trouble.
To help as many readers as possible read your whitepapers you could build a dedicated landing page for each one, exemplifying the advantages that accessing the whitepaper will offer your readers. Don’t make it difficult for people to get hold of your whitepaper by asking for too much information of them that would scare them off. Whitepapers are a first-class opportunity to highlight and showcase your expertise and know-how and generously offer your readers information and knowledge that is of value and importance.
Besides whitepapers, another way to provide learning and educational resources of value to your existing or potential customers, as part of your overall forex digital marketing strategies, is through the production of webinars. Apart from holding a visual presentation in real time, the added advantage of webinars is that they allow you receive and answer questions posed by viewers on the spot. This is an excellent opportunity to prove what you know and how you can help, while the engagement and interaction will go down very well and given all the available topics you could address, you should have an abundance of such interactive opportunities.
- Increase your fan base on social
Having a solid social media presence in today’s world is essential for all entrepreneurs and forex brokers could not be an exception to this rule. Leads gained from your social media channels are proven to be qualified leads with higher conversion rates. Moreover, the extra advantage you can gain by generating and posting appealing content on your social media accounts is that by clicking on like and share all your viewers can help expand your fan base and add popularity and even virality to your messages. Therefore, make sure that only quality content finds its way on your social media accounts, such as live streaming or high-resolution videos, animated gifs, infographics that are information packed and related to the forex industry and generally specific forex trading related content of high credibility and added value.

Search engine optimization (SEO) should never be overlooked and when done properly and in conjunction with content marketing, success is almost certain. Having a website that is fully optimized in order to rank high on search engine results pages and containing the right keywords and phrases, will take you a long way. Remember however that it is crucial not only to offer Google what it wants to see in order to classify you in a high-ranking position, but also give site visitors what they are looking for and what they need. The latter is best achieved when you create for them a positive and enjoyable user experience, will at the same time offering value-centric, reliable and attractive content. The happier and more contented your visitors are, the higher the conversions to be had.
- Promote your brand through Forex Affiliates
