Over the next week we will be presenting a series of videos of the speeches and discussions featured at the London Summit 2015. If you were unfortunate enough to miss the summit, or did attend but missed out on a particular session, this is your chance to catch up.
Leverate VP of Marketing Nicc Lewis covers the fundamentals of B2C marketing for Forex brokers. Nicc has over a decade of experience in digital marketing, operating at the highest levels of the companies where he has worked.
Leverate provides technological solutions for starting brokerages, and currently serves 130-150 brokers. In this workshop, Nicc discusses the things that a brokerage needs to be successful, starting from scratch.
He discusses different kinds of capital requirements, website requirements, managing liquidity flow properly, sales, retention marketing, risk plans, having enough funds available to cover your trades, and plans for technology failures.

“Use a proactive chat at the right key trigger moments, understand the data and see where the trader is and what they’re doing- this is key.”
