How to Post a New Wall Entry - Training
The IBOwall features in-line commenting and posting encouraging you to keep the conversation going. You can have a live conversation with members that comment on your wall posts. Here are the steps to start a conversation (wall post) and keep the conversation going (commenting).

Toward the top of the dashboard to the right of the image for the IBO Wall, you will see a link that says add new wall entry

Enter your new wall entry in the box. If you need to make the box bigger for a longer wall post, simply put your cursor on the bottom right corner and drag the box. When you are finished with your wall entry, click on the arrow with the orange circle.

The IBO wall posting system is intended to engage members in conversation, promote business opportunities, informational posts, asking other members questions and more. It's an opportunity to socialize and network with the other members as well as get more exposure for those that engage. When using the wall entry system, it is perfectly fine to post a link, just make sure to include the "http://" in front of the link to make it clickable (making it easy for members and others interested to find out more).

IBOtoolbox is a positive community and does not allow any negativity. Keep in mind that constantly spamming the wall, over promoting your opportunities, posting religious or political discussions, negative remarks, or anything else that does not keep this platform a positive safehaven place for business is prohibited. Fellow members can and will report these prohibited postings that will result in automatic account suspension.

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Did you know that just having one good quality banner graphic can boost your sales? Digital display ad spending (banner graphic ads) hit over $32 billion in 2016! A few years ago, Forrester Research reported that, digital display ads (banner graphic ads) are expected to increase to $28 billion in the next five years. In 2012, $12.7 billion was spent on this kind of advertising which means that is advertising has increased a little over 50 percent! Very powerful and the kind of advertising we all should do more of!

So how do we ride this trend without our banners falling into the category of what I like to call "digital distraction"? Let's face it, it is so 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. You need to have good quality banner graphics that will quickly 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. As marketers we must keep it simple as cluttered banner designs will underperform keeping you from getting your message to your audience. It is also important to keep your text (ad copy) concise and give the benefit(s) to drive engagement and conversions (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!

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!

I see through the years that many things have changed. What is great though is the best, most important things have remained the same. The platform has remained free thanks to the many contributors. It is still a safe haven for marketers.

Thanks Kris, your training has been very valuable for me. One of the things that always sticks out to me is, that you say you were just a member like us. And that you built your Online businesses from scratch not even knowing html and coding. And you always say if I can do it, so can you. Which has been an incentive to get in and participate, and don't quit.
