Welcome to IBOtoolbox News!
Welcome to Issue 304 of IBOtoolbox News! From the very beginning, IBO was developed as a "safehaven" environment for marketers to come together to network, promote their business and build their brands. At IBOtoolbox, negativity is prohibited. By enforcing this, every member has the opportunity to be successful with their business venture! Thank you for reading IBOtoolbox News, enjoy your newsletter!

 
Here Is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
Only one more month left of 2017 and IBO continues to be at the forefront boasting 6 Million visitors for the month of November! With a viable commission system in place, it makes IBOtoolbox even more attractive to these visitors! These visitors have arrived to IBO looking for what you have to offer based on the information you have put into the platform. That being said, this is not just ordinary traffic, this is organic search engine traffic - there is a huge difference! Visitors are arriving at IBO because they have put in search terms that equal what you have written about in your press releases, wall posts and comments you have left. They are actually interested in what you have to offer!

As we close out 2017, smart marketers will continue to ride this wave right up until the end of the year and then they will reap the benefits of the new year! I encourage all of you to ride along! Don't just sit on the sidelines waiting for things to happen, make it happen for you!

 
Quality Commenting on Press Releases at IBOtoolbox - Training
At IBO, members can comment on other member press releases. Additionally, if you have at least 5 stars, you earn 5 credits (10 for IBO contributor badge holders) per press release that you comment on. While commenting massively can certainly help you rack up IBO credits, you need to ask youself if those comments you are leaving are "quality" comments. With the new Comment Cleanup system in place, quality commenting is now more important than ever!

If you are leaving comments that have nothing to do with the PR but maybe just acknowledging that particular PR, you really are not adding value to the press release nor do you really appear interested in what the writer has to say. Even worse - it is kind of obvious that you didn't even read the PR. Here are examples of what I mean:

"Great PR, thanks for sharing!" OR "Excellent PR, liked and shared!"

Most of us have gotten these kinds of comments on our PRs, right? When I get thise comments, I think to myself, wouldn't it be nice if people would tell me why this PR is great or excellent or the value they are getting from my PR. We all want people to comment on our PRs, but a good, quality comment that actually adds something to the conversation and is worth keeping people engaged and interacting! Here is a great lesson I came across from Mrs. Yollis' Classroom Blog on how to compose a quality comment. Click here for a direct link to the blog. There might be more we can learn from these kids! Below is a video Mrs. Yollis' 3rd grade classroom did on quality comments.



I love what these kids have to say about always being positive and specific in your comments! I hope that you enjoyed this lesson as much as I did! As mentioned previously, everything we do at IBO gets indexed in the search engines - this includes comments! Additionally, since 96 percent of the daily traffic is non-member traffic, you never know who might be reading those comments!

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Does the opportunity that you are promoting have marketing material such as banner graphics, splash pages for you to use in your advertising? If so, how many other members are utilizing those same graphics? Think about it for a second... If you are using the same banner graphics to promote your business as hundreds or thousands of other people are using to promote the same opportunity - what would make someone click on your banner versus someone else's? Nothing.

On the Internet and at IBOtoolbox, you will see many people who are promoting the same opportunities. It's really important that your banner graphics and other marketing materials are "unique" and set you apart from the others. This is how you brand yourself on the Internet while promoting your opportunity at the same time. Setting yourself aside from your competition is very important to your success. How do you do this? This can be accomplished in two ways - create your own banner graphics or hire a professional to do that for you.

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!
