Who Are You Really Marketing To At IBOtoolbox - Training
One of the biggest misconceptions at IBOtoolbox is members think that they are marketing to the other members. To clear this up, there are three things that every member needs to know:

1. IBOtoolbox gets an average of 350,000 visitors each day.
2. 96 percent of the daily traffic is non-member traffic.
3. 4 percent of the daily traffic is member traffic.

Additionally, realize that everything you do at IBOtoolbox gets indexed in the search engines - your press releases, your wall posts, and your comments all get indexed. This creates organic traffic - meaning that your activity is being found by people going to the search engines and entering in search terms that equal your active - PRs, comments, wall posts. This is how that 96 percent of the daily traffic finds you.

Member traffic, 4 percent of the daily traffic, will see your press releases, wall posts and comments that show up on the dashboard as activity. Those members will comment, like and reply to your activity which helps your posts be seen by everyone but mostly the non-member traffic that see the activity from the outside looking in.

Think about this - every member at IBO is promoting a business, right? But almost every non-member that is coming to IBO is searching for a way to make money, a certain business, service or product based on the content that you have put into IBO and the search terms they have entered into the engines. Additionally this non-member traffic could be searching for that perfect sponsor that could be very well be 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!
