Default Forex Marketing Methods Available?

I'm looking for a way to advertise my Forex trading room opportunity.
It seems most Forex websites ad space are 90% consumed by the brokers with huge budgets.

If anyone has experience advertising Forex stuff I'd be very interested in your input or anyone with marketing options available.

Thank you.
Tony

Start a Wordpress blog about Forex. Download the software from Wordpress.org, then upload to your own domain - it'll give you more features than using the free .com platform. This is pretty simple to do if you're good with basic programming or web design, otherwise this can be outsourced for relatively cheap to anyone in the Warriors for Hire section.

Set your blog up with 5-10 posts of quality information, monetize with a banner, Adsense (optional) and an opt-in form if you're building a list (which if you're not, I highly recommend you do).

Set up an RSS feed for your blog to submit to all the RSS directories, and submit your blog to all the blog directories. Keep updating your blog and your website should get more exposure. Good luck!

In all that you do, know your True INTENT...

yeah marketing 101 basics do not cut it. I mean "write articles, get RSS feeds, do some PPC" hardly helps.

So what was your plan? How did you plan to get customers? you basically have to either do PPC (MEGA expensive in forex) SEO....(there goes at least 12 months time and money) and/or look for places to adertise where they are already getting high numbers of your cusotmers. Banenr ads, ezine ads to forex traders. Not cheap. Not easy.

Yep.
You're exactly right... The PPC is way too expensive, the SEO is very time consuming.
My traffic right now is entirely from Forex sites I've been "lucky" on that get decent traffic and offer affordable advertising options. Quite a pain indeed!
That's why I'm looking for any good options, etc.

I have not been too lucky on ezine ads though.. not found any. Anyone?

Thank you sloanjim.

The regular PPC or SEO methods are not just going to work. Forex is all about trading and making money doing so. If you are successful, join other well visited blogs or sites such as babypips.com, etc and contribute, posting results of your live trades.

Create a link to your website and by the time you know it, you will start getting noticed.

Unfortunately, most of the Forex forums (especially the largest such as BabyPips) are very tough about any type of links in forum threads.

So, I am quite at a crossroads! :/

Nope, never said it was easy, never mentioned PPC. Unless you have a large budget that you're willing to play around with, I wouldn't even recommend it.

I suggested a blog because they get indexed more quickly for one, and if you write helpful content, people will not only want to read it, but it gets passed around virally.

It's also called the Search button if you need any more clarifications.

Anyone know anything about some alternative ad content networks that might feature Forex-related websites?

Thank you.

We have several niches, and many domains, but forex is one of our large revenue centers.

I have 6 forex/trading sites (did I forget one?), selling my own ClickBank products and my membership services. The biggest site gets about 16,000 unique views in a month. I could sell you some ad space there, if you can beat my current CPM revenue.

I have had successful Adwords PPC campaigns, but poogle banned me for experimenting with CPA in that account. So it is possible to use PPC, but the bids are high. This is a very competitive niche (understating it a bit here).

My recommendation is to build an email list. Most of my forex marketing income comes from the email list. Email marketing is very rewarding, you have instant traffic whenever you want... This is not a get-rich quick scheme though, it will take time.

Also FYI, I do fairly well with my remnant ad space, promoting a trading CPA. It pays us only $1 per lead, via CJ. I mention this because you might consider advertising via a CPA network to find leads? You'll need a significant budget though.

All the usual strategies work. Video, email list, SEO, advertising, affiliate marketing, JV, Webinars, etc.

FYI, I don't usually participate in JV opportunities, because I market only my own products to my own list. I have a long-term relationship with my list, I don't send them other people's spam..

Feel free to PM me if you have and specific questions, or you are interested in marketing my FOREX products/services.

So, you want to sell me another way to easily make "X" dollars in "X" days? ROFL too funny! IM success requires hard work and lots of time. Most newbies do not survive the steep learning curve. Anyone who says otherwise is probably selling you a fantasy.

For PPC, you may want to try the alternatives to google. I've used yahoo with good results and they're not as strict as google. I haven't used MSN/Bing, but I hear they're good. The other one I've used is Miva, also with good result (miva.com)
I also just created a forex blog, so I don't have much traffic yet, but let me know if I can be of help. I may be interested in your trading room opportunity as well.

I forgot the mention banner ads. I use adtoll for that.
I got good traffic from them, but low conversion rates.
A big chunk of their traffic comes from outside the US (don't know if that matters for your product)

A blog, plus article marketing are probably your best bet. You drive traffic to your blog through your articles. I would suggest Hub Pages also, but not sure about TOS for forex on Hub Pages.

- Setup a blog. With a "Page" as front. (Promotion (Give Away))
- Go to forex-tsd.com and locate problems
- Google an answer.
- Go back and reply and say you have an article about the problem
- And of course you have written a 2-300 words article.
- Replies on that forum ain't fast.
- And people will most likely check you out as you target them.

..or use ehow or yahoo answers and start reply to trading q's

Cheers

Yeah ... I forgot about Yahoo Answers. Probably a good plan to search for Forex questions and answer them. Don't be spammy or promotional, but you can direct them to a blog post after you've made a few really informative answers.

Thank you all for the additional answers.

FredFarnes, or anyone else who may be interested in partnering up on some advertising ventures on your Forex / investing related website please email me.
tony(at)watch live forex trades.com

As for article marketing, I'm really more into the paid advertising but it's probably time I do expand for sure.

If anyone does have any good FX paid ad opportunities reasonably priced I am very interested however, so do drop me a line.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Another way of driving traffic is to get affiliates to do it for you. You may want to start looking for affiliates to get you traffic instead of looking for traffic all by yourself.

I'll be interested to post one of your articles on my blog or write a review post about it. I'm also working on a low-priced ebook where I can include links to your site.

Lastly, I went through your sales copy and I can offer a critique if you're interested.

Good luck,
Al

If you are not interested with SEO and PPC then you should better go with email marketing. This is the best way to get traffic but for this you need leads of emails where you will send your email.
