Here Is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
Since IBOtoolbox has opened up the ability to earn commissions to all members, the platform has been buzzing with excitement and this is only the beginning! As stated in an announcement that came out this past week, the IBO Management Team has an aggressive goal to triple the size of its active member base, double its incoming organic traffic, streamline its sites, tools and systems within the next 6 months! With the focus on commissions and promotions, this past week the IBO Development Team asked for members to give their feedback on what the development team could do to assist the members in help making this goal happen.

Who Are You Really Marketing To At IBOtoolbox - Training
One of the biggest misconceptions at IBOtoolbox is members think that they are marketing to the other members. To clear this up, there are three things that every member needs to know:

1. IBOtoolbox gets an average of 350,000 visitors each day.
2. 96 percent of the daily traffic is non-member traffic.
3. 4 percent of the daily traffic is member traffic.

Additionally, realize that everything you do at IBOtoolbox gets indexed in the search engines - your press releases, your wall posts, and your comments all get indexed. This creates organic traffic - meaning that your activity is being found by people going to the search engines and entering in search terms that equal your active - PRs, comments, wall posts. This is how that 96 percent of the daily traffic finds you.

Member traffic, 4 percent of the daily traffic, will see your press releases, wall posts and comments that show up on the dashboard as activity. Those members will comment, like and reply to your activity which helps your posts be seen by everyone but mostly the non-member traffic that see the activity from the outside looking in.

Think about this - every member at IBO is promoting a business, right? But almost every non-member that is coming to IBO is searching for a way to make money, a certain business, service or product based on the content that you have put into IBO and the search terms they have entered into the engines. Additionally this non-member traffic could be searching for that perfect sponsor that could be very well be you!

 
IBOtoolbox Tip of the Week!
To find out more about another IBO member, simply click on their name, this brings up a member viewer. From the member viewer, you can see when they joined IBO, their last login date, how many likes, wall posts and associates they have as well as how many press releases and videos they have posted along with comments received and given. If you are associated with this member, you have the ability to send messages, give credits, change the notifications you receive from IBO about this member. If you are not associated with the member, you are able to send a request to associate and view the member's profile.

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Web banner ad graphics are used as a visual with the intent to drive traffic to a website by linking to the advertiser's website. There are two common types of banner ad graphics that you can use here at IBOtoolbox - static or animated.

Static banners are "single frame" banners comprised of images along with a strong message. This message is your "headline" simply stating your call to action - why your visitor should want to know more. Following your headline should be an action request such as "click here", "learn more" etc. For static banners to perform well, you need to make sure that your message is clear and to the point (5-10 words maximum), make sure your image is appealing and in general, there is not extra or unnecessary ad copy.

Animated banners are "rotating frame" banners usually comprised of no more than 3 frames. Usually the first and second frame would be your call to action; so you would break up the text you had on your static banner - helping build up curiousity. Your third frame would be your action request.

Both types of banners work well and will deliver results if designed using images and colors to quickly grab the attention of your visitors. As far as your headline goes, remember less wording is always better!

Special BUSINESS BUILDER IBOstarter Pack: Purchase any 728X90 banner, static or animated - receive a FREE duplicate 468X60 banner to run on your IBOsocial profile page! Click here to place your order. Free set up and activation in your IBOtoolbox account as well as free hosting is included for both banners plus 1000 IBO credits transferred to your account!
