When you are growing your brokerage globally and trying to have a wider reach to acquire more clients from around the world, you need to have a strong IB network. While setting up offices in new regions might be a good idea, it could create an unnecessary economic burden.

The IBs usually have a better understanding of the local market patterns, bring their own clients, and can reach potentials easier. Furthermore, introducing brokers are trusted by their local traders more, and in some countries without an IB you will not be able to access the market at all, for example in Asian regions, where IBs play a vital role in acquiring new traders.

Create loyalty with a competitive compensation scheme

Whether you are just starting out or already have an existing IB program, continuously conducting market research allows you to create an attractive offering to draw potential IBs to your brokerage.

A good IB management tool comes with advanced capabilities that allow you to create complex multi-tiered commission schemes for each IB, with different commission types available (i.e., based on lot, percentage, etc), giving you the flexibility to assign different commissions for different IBs, for different periods of time, trading conditions and more.

IBs and affiliates bring in high volumes of business for brokers because they can introduce many clients. So, instead of focusing only on occasional campaigns to attract individual traders, you can work more sustainably and partner up with a multitude of IBs and affiliates on favourable conditions, offering attractive compensation schemes. These high impact partnerships can guarantee a steady increase of new accounts and result in meeting your financial targets.

Spend less on client acquisition with customizable marketing materials

Working as an IB is a business on its own, and as a brokerage you want to help simplify things for your partners. The old ways of making traditional phone calls and holding offline seminars are not as effective anymore. With digitized operations, IBs can create online promotions that suit today’s clients’ preferences and help them to reach a large audience effectively.

With customizable marketing tools such as banners, registration forms, templates, and IB links, IBs can create location-specific marketing campaigns which they can share online on social media, forums, groups, and more. Ultimately, IBs should only focus on referring traders while letting the broker do the rest.
