For starters, CFD and forex traders are expected to be knowledgeable, competitive and sharp individuals who should not be impressed by cheap marketing gimmicks such as discounts, promotions or flashy signs. What should matter to them is that the brokerage they partner with delivers on what they promise, i.e., that the brokerage is trustworthy. This is why partnering with AvaTrade, for example, a broker that is regulated across 5 continents is the best partner for forex affiliates. Your visitors will trust you, as you represent a credible, reputable, and trusted broker.
With that said, you must also ensure that your forex affiliate website displays credibility by providing content that will educate your visitors. Getting there is fairly easy but requires a bit of work. Your website must look and feel professional, informative, and credible. This is why here at AvaPartner we offer our partners unique presentation embeds that can go easily up on your website that explains What are CFDs and other valuable information, all this will help you establish credibility with your website visitors. You can also insert your affiliate links into the presentations which can increase conversions and thus increase your commissions!

At least not a reputable website. So get your blog up and going first, and then partner with a blog or authority website in the financial or Forex niche that has been around a while has a high DA as we mentioned before, and then you will be able to reap the benefits of this strategy.
