affiliate-website traffic

When you become a forex affiliate, the goals are simple: generate traffic, secure conversations, earn more rebates. Every aspect of your site should be set up with these three targets in mind, otherwise you’re likely not marketing to the best of your ability. If your forex affiliate marketing efforts feel stale or stagnant, you’ve come to the right place.

Here are 10 ways to drive more forex affiliate traffic to your site and earn more rebates!

Learn about your target audience.

If you take the time to explore failing forex affiliate sites, you’ll find a number of common trends. The most common of these trends is a lack of direction and identity.

While it’s certainly possible to target every type of trader with your content, it’s extremely difficult to do so effectively—especially without extensive experience in the field. For those who are new to forex affiliate marketing or struggling to generate traction, it’s important to pick a target audience, and stick with it. Novice and upstart traders are a popular target audience among affiliates.

Establish a strong sense of credibility

What do many underperforming forex affiliates lack? The answer is simple: credibility. Forex traders are a savvy bunch, so you can’t expect them to be lured in by cheap and flimsy marketing campaigns. Your forex affiliate site needs to establish itself as credible, through helpful and educational content.. This can be done a number of ways, but it’s critical that the words, videos, and imagery you put forward look professional. Effectively, you want to present yourself not as a forex affiliate site, but as a functional and useable forex resource that visitors can trust. 

Start a blog

As you forge ahead and establish yourself as a credible forex resource, you should never discount the importance of a blog. A blog is a multifaceted tool that has massive SEO implications. Through appropriate keyword research, you can boost your Google ranking position, which could very well give you the edge over other forex affiliate sites. It’s not just SEO that makes a blog so crucial either—it also gives you a primary line of contact with your audience. Educate, inform, and entertain, and you can make a connection with readers, which makes it easier to turn them into bankable conversions. 

Encourage guest posting

Creating links with other blogs and forex affiliates can be extremely beneficial from both an SEO and marketing perspective. Exchanging posts and creating backlinks will only certify your blog as a trusted source of forex information. It must be noted that guest posting can only really be done after your blog has been established, as you may find it tough to guest post elsewhere if you don’t already have a reputation for quality content.

Engage in email marketing campaigns

Want to drive up forex affiliate traffic? Then you need to make use of email marketing. Email marketing should be at the heart of your affiliate efforts because it’s the most viable way of turning traffic into conversions. Proper email marketing should allow you to reach users in a personal way, and is one of the best tools to drive traffic back to your site. Understanding your audience plays a crucial role in producing effective email marketing. Gauge your audience appropriately, and you’ll find that email marketing can give your traffic numbers a huge boost.

Look toward paid advertising options

It’s something of a shortcut, but if all else fails, you can pursue paid advertising options via the likes of Google AdWords in order to increase traffic. This method of promoting your forex affiliate site certainly has benefits, as it effectively bumps you to the front of the line in the rankings. However, it can also be very costly, especially if you enter PPC advertising without a plan. Paid advertising can without question deliver big traffic, but it’s not quite the quick fix that some would have you believe.


You can’t be a successful forex affiliate marketer without traffic—it’s just that simple. You need people to view your site in order to ramp up conversions and, in turn, generate more rebates. There really is no overnight formula for forex marketing success, but if you follow the above tips, you’ll certainly be putting your best foot forward.
