Banners, Graphics, and More...
Have you ever on wondered why you are no one is clicking on your banner or your click through rate is very low? Here are a few reasons why:

1. You are advertising to the wrong audience. This is pretty self-explanatory, however if your banner ad is about classes on auto mechanics, IBOtoolbox is probably the wrong place to run that banner ad.

2. Your banner ad is distracting to your audience. It's flashing, has neon colors and is just getting in the way of people getting the information they came for when visiting that page. This type of banner ad will not only get a very low click thru rate, but more than likely cause the person to go somewhere else. Banner ads with relevant information that look like they belong on the website will get the best CTR.

3. You are using banner ads that your business opportunity has supplied you with. Think about this one for a minute.... EVERYONE is using those banners! So very quickly saturation comes into play and when these banners are shown, people ignore them because they already know what they are going to see when they click on them.

4. Finally, tell your audience why they should click on your banner - how you can help them, etc. Also, make sure you tell them what they need to do next with a "call to action" such as "click here".

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!
