52 Blog Topics for Forex Brokers

Ideas for your forex blog in 2020

We’ve written about the benefits of content marketing before, and we’ve advocated blogging as a part of your content marketing efforts. According to HubSpot, 77% of internet users read blogs regularly, and 84% of financial services marketers said that in 2019 they would spend the same amount or more time blogging than in 2018.

Once you start blogging, however, it can be difficult to figure out what you should write about. And that task only gets harder with time.

To help with your content marketing efforts, we’ve created a list of 52 blog topics for forex brokers. If you just blog once a week, this list will get you through an entire year. If you add in a weekly technical analysis post, you can put up two blog posts a week.

Those posts can greatly improve your position in search engines, and they can show clients that you’re an industry expert. Our list is broken down into different categories, so you could even create pillar pages to get an extra SEO boost.

You should have a content marketing strategy that includes a plan for your blog posts. Your strategy should define what you want to accomplish by writing blog posts. Your goals might include building brand awareness, growing your leads list, increasing client retention.

Our list has topics that can help with all of those goals. Use it as a starting point to generate your own ideas, or copy it as is. Remember, you should focus on providing value to your readers, not making sales. When your content marketing focuses on what your audience needs, you’ll be much more likely to achieve your long-term goals.
