IBOtoolbox Tip of the Week!
Using the IBOurl is a great way to shorten and mask long affiliate links. When using an IBOurl, it places a menu bar at the top of any webpage that creates branding for you in a very professional manner. You can also choose to let your visitors have quick access to your videos, press releases and social networks with this menu bar. This menu bar can capture leads for you by selecting to display a "learn more" form or "create IBOtoolbox account" form as well as give your visitor an opportunity to chat live with you! Isn't that cool! To set up IBOurls, just click on IBO Apps/IBOurl under Site Navigation at IBOtoolbox to create an IBOurl.

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Designing a banner graphic is more than putting some images and text together, it's about telling a story. As a marketer, you should know the importance of stories, but do you know how to tell a story with very little or no words at all? Consider this - our brains process pictures 60,000 times faster than text. That being said, it is clear why banner graphics get higher click thru rates than other types of advertising.

By using banner graphics, your audience is able to decide very quickly whether they want to find out more/see more about what you are offering. Those banner graphics have to be designed correctly to tell your visual story. Too many times I see banners that are designed using more words than graphics. If there is too much text, it will take too much time to read and you'll lose your audience. One short headline/phrase that creates enough curiosity for the visitor to want to find out more with a strong call to action and quality graphics that help tell the story is all you need.

If you want results, it is very important that your advertising look professional and appealling. Going along with IBOtoolbox being a platform comprised of "professional independent business owners", it is critical that you don't use clip art, watermarked images, or cut and paste words of different fonts into your graphics. This will only discourage your viewer from joining your business or purchasing a product, instead encourage them with a great first impression that can lead to a sale or new team member!

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!
