Here Is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
The format for the weekly webinars are in the process of changing. You will soon be able to view the webinar on demand at MarketWithKris.com Each webinar will be available for one full week along with a credit code that is redeemable within that week. This gives ALL members the opportunity to watch the webinar at their convenience, no matter where they live or what time zone they are in and still be able to redeem the credit code. I hope to have this all set up by this Wednesday, October 18, 2017.

Even though the webinars will no longer be live, you still have the ability to ask questions! Just send an email to support@marketwithkris.com or use the contact feature at MWK to submit your questions. I will answer them or train on your question on a future webinar. You will no longer need to register for the webinars, however you will need to make sure that you are registered at MWK in order to access the webinar. I appreciate your patience during this transition as it just makes more sense for everyone to make the webinars available on demand!

 
Content Ideas for IBO Press Releases - Training
We have all heard the saying "content is king" and it is, however it's not if it's not original. In fact, it can get you into a lot of trouble if the content that you write in your PR is copied or it is not original. Since IBO does such a wonderful job of getting you ranked up high on the search engines for your chosen key word, tags or company that you promote, it is even more important now to push out good quality content on your press releases. Additionally, PRs are automatically pushed out to IBOsocial's Twitter and Facebook feeds, Networkedblogs.com, IBOsocial.com, your IBOsocial profile as well as the IBOtoolbox wall!

So what does this all mean? Good quality, original content can be simple, here are some ideas that will hopefully help you in your writing:

1. Write something that you you know a lot about. Maybe you are an "expert" on a given subject and you want to share that with the community.

2. Give an honest review on something. Maybe you have had an experience about a product or service that you might want to share. The more transparent you can be on this review the better and you will find that it will bring loyal followers to press releases because they trust what you say.

3. Write "how to" press releases. Be as detailed as you can when writing this kind of PR listing step-by-step instructions so it's easy for your reader to follow and apply.

4. Interview someone that might be an expert in your field or someone your target market might be interested in. Publish a question and answer type PR for this one.

5. Tell a story and make it entertaining! Tell something that has happened to you that your readers can relate to.

Hopefully these ideas will give you something to get you started! Most of all remember two things when writing:

1. Be original - your thoughts, your writing - no one else's!

2. Quality posts outweigh quantity!

Just remember to have fun with it, don't stress out! Practice helps you improve your writing skills - the more PRs you write, the better you get at it! You can do a lot with the press release tool at IBO like add video, images and more!

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Creating a banner graphic can be a little more challenging than putting some words and images together. You have about 5 seconds to grab attention and above all, make sure it gets clicked before "digital distraction" kicks in. Designing an effective banner takes creativity and experience. Here are my top 3 traits of an effective banner graphic:

1. Know your audience! This will help you to determine the right text, graphics and color scheme to use.

2. Image Type - when selecting images, it is best to use a "PNG" image. This format was specifically designed for the web. This image format saves color information more efficiently and also supports a transparent background enabling you to do a lot more with the image such as shadowing, outlining and other effects. Using PNG images can make your banner graphic "POP" drawing more attention!

3. Make your call to action stand out! Be as direct and clear as possible making it simple for them to know what it is that you want them to do. Example: if you want them to visit your website, have a button on your banner that says "Click Here".

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!
