Here Is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
Just looking around IBO, you can really tell that members are starting to get really serious about building their business and getting extra exposure. Comments on PRs and wall posts are increasing in quality. Members are realizing that everything they do gets indexed and the better the quality, the more they are certain to get recognized! Keep in mind that visitors are finding you based on the content you have put into IBO. You don't have to chase these visitors to come to you, they are finding you because rather they have "searched" for what you have to offer. Just by writing press releases, posting videos to your profile, running banner and listing ads, commenting and completing your profile - you are being found! Everything you do on IBO gets indexed in the search engines. It can't be said enough that 96% of the traffic that comes to IBO is non-member traffic. The more you put into IBO, the more likely you will be found! Is it worth it? It absolutely is!

The remaining 4% traffic is member traffic. These are the people that you spend time with building relationships by commenting, sharing and liking other their wall posts, PRs and videos - supporting them through IBOspirit! These are not the people you are advertising to. They are other like minded business owners and you can network and associate with them, but they are not your prospects. Once you really understand this, there is no limit as to how powerful IBO can be for you!

 
How To Achieve & Maintain IBOtoolbox Stars & Badges - Training
At IBOtoolbox you get rewarded for your activity. The more decorated you are, the more visible you will become and with that comes more success! The best way to stay on course is to ultilize IBO's OnTrack feature located on the right side of the dashboard. OnTrack functions in "real time" monitoring your activity within the site and rewards you with stars. If you click on the links just to the left of any of the arrows (green or red) you will get a report that will tell you what you need to do to achieve the star and what you need to do to maintain it.

STARS (OnTrack)

At IBO, you have the ability of earning 6 stars. These stars are achieved by completing the following tasks:

1. Receive a star for completing sections 1-3 of your profile.
2. Receive a star for publishing a press release within the last 48 hours.
3. Receive a star for engaging and posting on the wall within the last 24 hours.
4. Receive a star for getting a referral to IBOtoolbox within the last 5 days.
5. Receive a star for running advertising within the last 48 hours.
6. Receive a star for commenting on other members press releases and videos.

IBO members can also be recognized with badges that identify them as leaders on the platform. Here are the different categories and how they are achieved:

IBO BIGDOGs

These are the Top 10 IBO members who have the most advertisements shown. These members receive the IBO BIGDOG badge and this list resets daily. Members can either earn credits by publishing press releases, referring new members or by purchasing advertising credits. New IBO members receive 500 credits when they complete their profile.

TOP Enrollers

Traffic Leaders

IBO Contributor Badge

This badge goes to members who purchase credits and/or have an active subscription to ClubIBO to advertise their business. This badge is displayed to show off their support for IBOtoolbox! This badge is good for 30 days from the time of purchase. Members that are IBOcontributors earn double credits for PRs, comments, and referrals. **Special Note: ClubIBO member credit purchases are doubled even on sale packages and active ClubIBO members earn 50 percent commission on their referral credit purchases!

It's important to keep in mind that the more you engage, participate and interact on the platform, the more you will get recognized and the more people you will attract. If you get stuck on something or one of your arrows turns red, just refer back to IBOtoolbox OnTrack!

 
IBOtoolbox Tip of the Week!
Traffic at IBOtoolbox is non-incentivized traffic. This is the best traffic you can get.

Banners, Graphics, and More...
So many of us suffer from what I like to call "digital distraction". It's easy to get distracted because there is just so much to see and learn on the Internet. As users, we try to quickly gloss over websites to find what brought us there in the first place.

Banner graphic advertising is an extremely effective way to get through all the digital clutter and connect with your prospects. Good quality banner graphics will capture attention prompting the visitor to click on your banner ad boosting your click through rate.

In general, people respond better to images or graphics - banner graphic design is all about creating visual eye candy. The beauty of banner graphic ads is that you can have both images and text on the banner. It's important to standout, but at the same token you don't want to clutter your banner graphic with too many images or text.

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!
