Managing traders’ leads:

The traders will judge you and your forex trading platform based on how you have managed interaction with them. This is why you need to pay more attention to this aspect of the business. When your team is approaching the potential traders and IBs, a CRM helps them streamline the operations and make the sales faster and more efficient. But most importantly, if your sales process is seamless, it creates a good experience in the customers’ minds and improves the chances of getting the trader on board.

Managing IB Leads:

A bit different from the individual traders, IB structure helps you grow your business exponentially. Because each IB brings along a set of loyal forex traders, managing IB leads has a little more importance than the individual trader leads. Also, IBs are usually experienced people so they know what is the actual scenario of forex trading industry. To attract and retain IBs, you need to focus more on communicating correctly and creating an impression of a trustable FCM. A CRM software helps your team to a great extent in managing the IB leads for your forex trading platform.
