Thank you for reading IBOtoolbox News, enjoy your newsletter!

Here Is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
Social media is all about engaging with others and building relationships - after all we are in the "relationship marketing" business! Those members that truly engage with others and share value instead of constantly trying to get you to join their business are going to reap the rewards and be more successful! Keeping in mind that 96% of IBOtoolbox's traffic is non-member traffic, you never know who might be looking at you... a future team member, a customer, etc. So while you are engaging and participating at IBO, here are some important things to keep in mind:

Be positive - When you post PR's, wall entries and comment on other member PR's, wall entries or videos, make sure that you keep it positive. Remember the old saying - "if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything".

No screaming - Using all caps in your ads, posts, PR or comments, is a good way to get ignored and is generally viewed as uneducated and rude. This practice is considered "screaming" and most people are offended by this.

Engage in IBOspirit - By sharing other member wall posts, PR's and videos on your social networks, you are engaging in IBOspirit. When you do this, others will often return the favor. The members that participate in this see even greater results with IBOtoolbox!

"No Adult" material - IBOtoolbox has a strict "no adult" material policy! Help us keep IBO professional!

Do not spam associates through the chat system/instant messenger - Everyone at IBOtoolbox has something to sell. It is not good practice to associate with members just to send them your opportunity. Instead, use the system correctly to establish a true relationship. Your opportunities are very visible to the members for them to see, so don't force it.

The IBO community is like any other neighborhood ~ good news and bad news both travel at lightening speed! Be a generous member of the IBO community! Help out where you can. Congratulate people on their successes and provide a shoulder for those who have been hurt. Celebrate often! Pass along compliments and take time to thank those that have helped you in your success. Welcome new members on board and associate with them. Begin building a true relationship first without trying selling them on your business opportunity. After all, we all have a common goal ~ let's work together for our combined success! Go IBO!

IBOsearch System - Training
IBOtoolbox has its own member search system. Utilizing this system you can search by name, demographics, business and more! Here's exactly how it works:

To access the IBO Search feature, click on "Search" under Site Navigation at the top right of the dashboard screen. You are now at the search section where you will see different categories. Let's breakdown each one to show you what they are capable of.

1. Member Name - Here you can search by First Name, Last name, Phone Number, or Skype Username.

2. Demographics - This category gives you the choice to search by Country, State/Province, or City. This is a great feature especially if you are looking like-minded business owners to network with in a certain geographic location.

3. Business - This is a great one if you are looking for other members from your company or your competitor's company. You might have a certain business or company that you want to join and are looking for a great sponsor!

4. Associates & Referrals - In this category you can search by all IBO members, include only your associates, exclude your associates, or include only your referrals.

5. Joined IBOtoolbox - Here you can search by join date range. Select dates from the calendar icons for the "From" and "To" by entering a specific join date range!

However you would like to conduct your search, just click on the box or circle next to each sub-category and enter in the relevant information in the box provided on the right and click on "Search IBOtoolbox" and you will see what your inquiry came up with! You can also use IBOsearch.com or your own branded search engine located on your IBOsocial profile page.

The IBO search feature is an extremely valuable tool! It's a great way to add new associates by searching by join date, look for fellow distributors that are in your company, network or hold meetings in your area by finding local members! This is a great feature, give it a try and see what you come up with! Go IBO!

Banners, Graphics, and More...
I am often asked which banner size gets the best results or best click through rate at IBOtoolbox. There are three banner sizes that are available for you to run at IBOtoolbox:

468X60 Banner This banner is one of the most common size banners and can be ran on your IBOsocial profile, other members IBOsocial profiles, IBOsocial.com main page, IBOtoolbox Wall, IBOtoolbox News, IBOanswers top and IBOgigs. This size banner averages between 3-5% click through rate.

250X250 Banner This size banner can be ran on IBOtoolbox Right, IBOtoolbox News, IBOanswers Right and IBOtube Right. The click through rate on this size banner averages between 5-7%.

728X90 Banner This banner is referred to as a "Leaderboard" banner and is probably the most popular size used and for good reason! This size averages an 8-10% click through rate! This size banner can be ran on IBOtoolbox Top, IBOlist Top, IBOtube Top, IBOanswers Bottom and IBOtoolbox News.

320X100 Banner This is the common size for mobile devices. This size banner is ran on IBOmobile and is one of the most prized positions in the entire platform since it is only viewable to mobile users! In just a few days of this banner ad being available, it's already averaging a click through rate of 8-10%! As more and more members use IBOmobile, expect this CTR to go even higher!

To figure out what your click through rate or CTR is, simply take the number of clicks divided by the number of views (impressions or times the banner is actually shown). Remember, the main objective of a banner is a "click" to get the visitor to a site that will give them enough reason to join a business, purchase a product or ask for more information.

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!
