Brokers’ tendency to reward profitable behavior does not stop at traders. It is often extended to the company’s partners too. Brokers offering bonuses for affiliates aim to increase their client base more rapidly and to stimulate partners in bringing more active traders. For example, many of the offers from this bonus category are based on ranking the broker’s affiliates by the monthly number of referred traders or by the monthly volume traded by referred traders. If you consider yourself a good Forex affiliate marketer, you probably should prefer promoting companies with such bonuses to companies without them. As a small-time marketer, you probably should seek brokers with higher flat rates per lead than to endeavor on these affiliate contests.
