5 Effective Ways To Promote Forex Affiliate Programs

If affiliates want to promote a Forex Affiliate Program, they often think that having a website is a good way to promote these programs. A website can be a good marketing tool but not everybody can manage a website. There could be different reasons ranging from lack of time or expertise to knowledge if it comes to article marketing.


When you have been thinking about promoting an affiliate program or when you already do so then we list five effective ways that both new and existing Forex Affiliates can make use of.


Twitter and Social Marketing

  • All you need to get started is a Twitter account, so sign up for a Twitter account when you do not have one yet and follow us on Twitter. :)
  • Once you have your Twitter account already, take some time to create a nice profile and background pages and a logo. When you are an individual, you do not need to make a logo but a picture which illustrates what you tweet about definitely helps you. And do not forget to fill out a short bio as well including the link.
  • The link in your profile field is very effective because other users often look and even click at the link which is available in your link field. Free advertising. E.g. you can make use of a URL shortener and put your affiliate link up there.
  • If you have a good looking profile you are now ready to tweet. When you are stuck for ideas then you can start by visit https://twitter.com/search-home and search for your niche keywords. Some keywords to get started would be e.g. Forex Trading, Trade Forex, Forex Promotions, Forex Bonuses etc. - you can now get the idea.
  • You should create clear tweets which are to the point and followed by your URL. You can also make use of hash tags in Twitter #keyword to make your tweets more search-friendly.


  • If we mention blogs, we are talking about free blog services which are provided by e.g. WordPress, Blogspot etc. For those who do not want to go through the hassle of having an own website, a free blog service can be a great help as it takes away the technicality out and lets you focus purely on content.
  • To get started, you should focus on a niche keyword of your choice. The keyword is essential because it forms your blog address.
  • Once you have chosen your blog address, you should pay attention on the design and layout of the blog. The most Forex Affiliate Programs provide different banner sizes which you can use, so choose a few and make use of the sidebar in your blog. You should also invest enough time to make your headline catchy when you do not have any design skills to make a custom header yourself.
  • Now when your blog is ready, you can start to build content. Focus on the Forex Broker which you are promoting and start writing content. Do not place too many links in the article because it can end up confusing the reader. The key is to focus on converting your readers into paying customers.

Email Signatures

  • Everybody has an email account and of course we can make use of it. So why not make a nice signature and drop in your affiliate link there.
  • A lot affiliates often tend to focus on the "outside" while not paying much attention to the potential customers on the "inside". By inside we mean your circle of contacts. By creating a clear phrase or even a though provoking one followed by your link, chances are high that at some point one of your contacts can be a potential trader. And the chances of converting these kinds of leads are much higher.
  • But you should always be honest in what you mention in your signature. So do not put an affiliate link simply because you get high commissions. Promote an affiliate link when you think that it provides value to your contacts of friends and colleagues.

Social Networks

  • The most people have at least one account with the many social networks which are now available. By posting status messages at opportune moments you have the potential to influence your friends on your list. By opportune moment we mean to say that whenever there is a market event capitalize on it and post a status message with your affiliate program link.
  • New affiliates can further stretch this concept by creating a Facebook page and inviting your friends to be fans. When the content which you post there is good, the chances are high that your page will get recommended by your friends to others. So social networks in general can be a good marketing tool.

PPC Marketing

  • This means a paid marketing and takes a little bit more time than the above, but is as effective without having a website. The paid search marketing is getting highly competitive in the Forex Trading niche. So why would we recommend this as an effective tool, especially when a certain amount of investment is needed? The answer is easy. When you are a part-time affiliate and do not have the resources to promote a Forex brand, then PPC is a way to go as it provides faster results.
  • You should try to focus on keyword synonyms that have an advantage of a lower cost per click and lets you by-pass the competition. Some Forex Affiliate Programs have some policies like bidding on their keywords. You should check that with your account manager before you focus on paid search marketing.


The above tips should be helpful and effective for you, but please have in mind that there is no silver bullet that will give you results over night. Forex Affiliate Marketing as a whole needs time, dedication and patience. A frequently asked question is: How much do you need to start a successful campaign? Just a short comment about that: You can get a long way with, e.g. $1,000, depending on how well you manage your campaigns. A marketing budget is always good for a successful start. The key is to reinvest all your earnings and do so consistently for several months. That is how the big boys make it.
