CMS Forex launched a new marketing initiative for the summer centered on info graphics and social media. Info graphics or information graphics are graphic visual representations of information or data. Given that 70% of forex traders consider themselves beginners (trading less than 5 years), info graphics are a quick way to attract more and more traders to currency trading. CMS Forex has made their info graphic easily available to website owners and blog writers through an embedded link. This is great information for traders, similar to Pepperstone’s “Anatomy of the Forex Market.” The only problem I see is that some site owners will be hesitant to use this tool since CMS Forex is an exclusive IB to Gain Capital.
A second initiative by CMS Forex is the Social Hub section on their site. They have combined all of their social media / social networking tools into one page to make it easy for their traders to share information. CMS Forex, like other leading brokers, now has a dedicated forex social team to engage clients and leads through social media sites. This practice started when brokers sent representatives to various forums to answer questions. The earliest adopters were MB Trading’s Justin LeBlang and FXCM’s Jason Rogers – now all major brokers are doing the same.
The newest infographic developed by CMS Forex, a Forex industry leader,explains the basics of Forex and presents an excellent starting point for anyone who is curious about how to trade Forex. It’s also great for experienced Forex traders who want to explain what they do to colleagues, friends, and family.
The infographic contains a visually appealing overview of the fundamentalsof the FX market, including the most traded currencies, key differencesbetween the stock market and the foreign exchange market, the mechanics ofthe market, a profit and loss formula, and most importantly, information on how to start trading Forex. The infographic can easily be embedded on blogsand websites. Editors and web masters would just need to go to www.cmsfx.com/infographic to grab the embedded code.
