Here Is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
We are in the middle of what is considered the slowest time for marketers. The good news is that if you continue to move your business forward on a daily basis, you will be way ahead of your competition! One of the best ways to do that and the easiest ways is to refer your fellow marketers to IBOtoolbox! I can hear you all say "what???", but just hear me out! When you are constantly in front of people promoting your business, people become "numb" to what you are saying. Why not offer them something that is of value, something that they can use to build their business? When you do that, people see you as helping them first - because all anyone wants to know is "what's in it for me", right? You are now being known as the helpful person instead of just another marketer promoting a business. This sets you aside from all the rest, then you begin to build that relationship with them and business will flow naturally.

In addition, when you refer others to IBOtoolbox and they complete their profile and earn their first star, you are awarded with 200 IBO credits (400 if you are an IBOcontributor) that you can use to advertise your business on the platform! That is huge and let's face it, we are all here to get extra exposure for our business, right?

Take advantage of this slow time and refer new members, encourage them to participate in the platform, get them to the training webinars - it will benefit everyone! To pick up your invite links, splash pages and a variety of other promotional items, just click on "Referral Links" under "Site Navigation" at IBOtoolbox!

IBOtoolbox Tip of the Week!
At IBOtoolbox, members that run ads have more interested people looking at their products and services than members who do not run ads. With 350,000 visitors coming through the site daily, getting your product or service in front of them is imperative! Keep in mind that every ad that runs on IBO has 2 links. One link goes to the ad target (your URL) and one back to your IBOsocial profile. This is really important to understand as many members use the link that goes back to your IBOsocial profile to learn more about you!

Banners, Graphics, and More...
One of the most important pieces of online marketing is advertising. On the Internet, that is most effectively done with targeted and postioned Banner Graphics.

IBOtoolbox does the targeting/positioning for you, but what do your ads look like? Does it stand out, grab attention, demand a click.... or does it simply blend in with everything else? Here are 2 tips that can help in designing your banner graphics.

When creating your banner graphic, you want to make sure that your design is well balanced. Let's say you have a great background image that you want use. You add some text to it but it gets lost in the image because the colors in your background are too strong, making the text almost impossible to read. By adding a shape with a transparency behind your text it makes your text easy to read and stand out.

If you have selected a clear/simple background or abstract image (one that has light colors), you will want to select a strong font with a dark color ensuring that there is enough contrast to stand over your background. Finally, add a nice border around the background image to frame out your graphic. The color of the border could be the same color as the text or a contrasting color.

IBObanners is a great resource available to you where you get access to ready made banners for different business opportunities or templates that you can customize for your business with text, graphics, etc! IBObanners will host all of your banners, plus give you access to a banner maker where you can create your own banners!
