Welcome to IBOtoolbox News!
Welcome to Issue 293 of IBOtoolbox News! IBOtoolbox, there really is something for every marketer! Think about it for a second... not only do we have a great platform that we can meet and share ideas and strategies with other like minded marketers, we have a safehaven to promote our businesses, brand ourselves and get more exposure with our marketing efforts. I can't think of any other community on the Internet that comes close to IBOtoolbox! Thank you for reading IBOtoolbox News, enjoy your newsletter!

 
Here Is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
I encourage you all to take advantage of the next few months and work like crazy continuing to use IBO to move your business forward daily. If you do this, you are setting the tone for your success in 2017! You see we are in the heart of the busiest time of the year for marketers and those that embrace this will win big time! One of the best ways to do that and the easiest ways is to refer your fellow marketers to IBOtoolbox! I know, you are thinking why??? Stay with me for second... 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.

Even better, 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? So get busy, grab your IBO promotional links and graphics at Referral Links under Site Navigation at IBOtoolbox and start spreading the word! See the training video below for even more assistance!

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".

The details of the banner ad design should be relevant to the page your visitors go to when clicking on your banner. In otherwords, your visitor feels comfortable when arriving your page. Designing a banner in this way results in a higher click through rate leading to the possibility of more sales.

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!
