New fx broker MahiFX launching – an interesting teaser

A new FX brokers looking to launch fx trading is always concerned with how to attract new clients. Most wait till they are fully ready and then splash the cash on Google and banners. Others decide to invest in a pre-launch teaser strategy such as what MahiFX did below. Personally I’m the proponent of the former strategy as you can immediately see results while the later strategy may be too costly. In any case Mahi here delivered quite an engaging landing page which may be of interest to quite a few traders.

MahiFX delivers interactive landing page Infographic to reveal just how long (or short) a time it takes for John Paulson to earn your annual income, along with other intriguing financial data. 

MahiFX, the new foreign exchange (Forex) trading platform, has announced its imminent online launch with an innovative digital ad campaign. The MahiFX ad, developed in collaboration with Strategy Design & Advertising alongside Sons & Co of New Zealand, features an HTML5 interactive Infographic tool that invites landing page visitors to compare their annual income with super-trader John Paulson, who is said to earn in excess of $500,000 (in 2010) per hour. In addition to the surprising, and somewhat shocking results, the Infographic serves up other intriguing financial data.
