Here Is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
IBO continues to pay out nice commissions to its members every single month! If you did not receive commissions on December 1st, here's how you can receive them next month:

Receive 20 percent commissions on credit purchases of anyone you personally referred to IBOtoolbox. You do not need to be a member of ClubIBO, maintain a certain amount of stars or purchase credits yourself to receive commissions. The only criteria is that you must log into IBOtoolbox at least 7 days prior to the sale to be eligible for that commission.

Receive 50 percent commissions on credit purchases by being an active ClubIBO member.

Minimum payout is $50 and commissions are paid via Paypal. Make sure to update your Paypal email under Step 1 of Edit Profile.

To find out more about the IBOtoolbox Commission system, click on My Earnings under Site Navigation.

There are an array of promotional banners that are located under Referral Links for you to use to market IBOtoolbox. Additionally, it's really important that you make sure your referrals get training on how to use IBOtoolbox. If they don't know how the site works, they won't stick around and they definitely won't purchase credits so you won't earn commissions! Free training is available at MarketWithKris.com the Official IBOtoolbox Training Platform, plus you earn IBO credits for watching the video training lessons!

 
How To Set Up and Run Banner Ads - Training
One of the best features on IBOtoolbox is the ability to run ads. Banner ads are seen by members as well as non-member traffic that comes to IBOtoolbox, so it is important to get your banners set up and displayed correctly. To set up your banner, follow the steps below:

1. Go to "My Advertising" under Site Navigation and click on "Create New". You will see a box appear where you can select the type of ad you wish to create. Select the size banner ad to create by clicking on the appropriate button. Below each button, it tells you how many impressions (views) each different ad costs.


2. The next step is to build your ad. The first thing you are going to do is give your ad a name. You will enter that in the box to the right of "Friendly Name". This name is for your reference only so name it whatever you want.

3. Since we are going to build a 468X60 banner ad, you will see "Ad Type: 468X60 Banner".

4. Below that you will see "Website Link". In the box to the right, enter in your target website - this is the website you want your visitor to go to when they click on your banner. This could be an affiliate site, product website, etc. Example: http://www.mysite.com/xyz

5. The next box is for the "Graphic URL". This URL will give the location of where the banner is remotely hosted. Basically, this tells IBOtoolbox where to pull that image from on the Internet. This URL will always end in either .jpg, .gif, or .png. Example: http://www.mysite.com/image/banner123.jpg

6. Now you are going to set the "Display Speed" which is how you want your banner ads delivered or shown. You can choose from "Default", "Fast", "Slow" or "Very Slow".

7. The next selection is "Display Ad On". You can choose from My IBOsocial Profile, Other Member IBOsocial Profiles, IBOsocial.com Main Page, IBOtoolbox Newsletter, IBOgigs, IBOtoolbox Wall and IBOanswers Top. You can select to have your banner ran on 1 or all of these different locations.

8. When you are all done setting up your banner ad, click on "Save".

9. Finally to make sure that your banner is displaying correctly, scroll down to "My Advertising" and find your banner ad by Ad Name. Click on the "Preview" button to preview the banner to make sure it displays.

10. Your final step is to activate your ad. You will see "OFF" in red. You will need to click on the "Turn On" button to activate your banner ad. Once you do that, you will see "RUNNING" in green. At anytime you can go back and turn off the ad. By clicking on the "EDIT" button, you can edit the ad, reset counters or delete it if you want.

Running ads at IBOtoolbox can get you more exposure for your business than any other paid or free platform can! IBOtoolbox's advertising system will bring in the most targeted audience that you will find anywhere on the Internet. Because IBOtoolbox receives over 300,000 visitors daily that are looking for business opportunities they can make money with and they are finding your products and services through search engines or through IBO's vast social media network. This a non-incentivized visitor/prospect base - the best there is! You will generally find a better click through rate on banner ads because people respond better to graphic images. Banner ads ran at IBO average a click through rate of 3-10% although many members have reported higher rates! Other factors that determine your click through rate are the banner size, where it is ran on IBOtoolbox!

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Sharing visual content is a great way to get people to remember what you are offering - that is why banner advertising is so powerful! When you see images and graphics it impacts you immediately and sometimes it can make an impact on you for months or even years! We can all agree that we like sharing great images and videos (visual content) with friends and when we do that we get a better response than just sharing text, right? Why is that? When you incorporate images and graphics into your advertising you are going to have a competitive advantage. People are 80% more likely to remember images versus 20% remember just text. But here's a big one - people comprehend 95% more of what they read if the text has images!

This is why banner graphic advertising is an extremely effective way to get your offer in front of your target market. Good quality banner graphics will capture attention prompting the visitor to click on your banner ad boosting your click through rate. The huge advantage 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!
