Here Is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
As we wrap up 2017, I encourage you all to take advantage of the next couple of weeks and work like crazy continuing to use IBO to move your business forward. Doing this will set the tone for your success in 2018! This is the busiest time of the year for marketers and those that embrace this will win big time! One of the best and easiest ways to do that is to refer your fellow marketers to IBOtoolbox! Think about it... when you are constantly in front of people promoting your business, people become "numb" to what you are saying. Why not offer them something that is of value, something that they can use to build their business? When you do that, people see you as helping them first - because all anyone wants to know is "what's in it for me", right? You are now being known as the helpful person instead of just another marketer promoting a business. This sets you aside from all the rest, then you begin to build that relationship with them and business will flow naturally.

Referring new members to IBOtoolbox brings a little something to you as well! When you refer others to IBOtoolbox and they complete their profile and earn their first star, you are awarded with 200 IBO credits (400 if you are an IBOcontributor) that you can use to advertise your business on the platform! That is huge and let's face it, we are all here to get extra exposure for our business, right? Taking it a step further, you also have the ability to earn commissions on your referral credit purchases! So get busy, grab your IBO promotional links and graphics at Referral Links under Site Navigation at IBOtoolbox and start spreading the word!

New Member Fast StartTraining
Welcome to all new IBO members! You are in the right place at the right time! IBOtoolbox you will get you more internet exposure for your business by providing a platform for members to meet other like minded marketers, IBOtoolbox enables you to build a business relationship first without the need to constantly try and sell your business to people that aren't interested.

This is a platform that will always put you first and wants you to be successful! That being said, let's get you off to a fast start by completing your profile. This is your first step to unlocking many free tools for your business. IBOtoolbox rewards you with 500 credits (2500 ads) to advertise your business just for completing 3 easy tasks!

To get your 500 starter credits, click on Edit Profile under Site Navigation at the IBOtoolbox dashboard:

1. Add your contact information, this is how prospects will locate you so make sure the information is accurate. Make sure to put in your geographical location as many prospects will want to deal with local people. Email, phone and skpe numbers are important as well if that is how you want to be contacted. Please note that email addresses are kept private and never displayed to prospects or other members. Add your URLs in the boxes provided for IBOtube, IBOgigs, Rebrandable Traffic and IBOextra. Make sure to click on "Save" when you are done.

2. Change your profile image. Click on "Change Profile Image", select an image from your computer and upload it. Remember that this is a professional business social network, not Facebook. Upload a real picture of you, not a logo or funny image so people can identify with you!

3. Add your business information, these will show up on your profile. Your business information consists of your business name and title. You also need to add your business links - your bizop link and product link. Note: if you don't have two websites, use the same one, but create an IBOurl.net alias for one of them for professional branding! IBOtoolbox supports multiple businesses, so you can add as many as you want to.

Once complete, return to the dashboard and your credits will be issued!

These are just the basic, required steps to completing your profile and earning your first star.

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Using banner graphic ads, IBOsocial customization and other graphics are a great way to brand you and your team! There is no limit on how you can use these graphics for branding. Adding a professional picture of yourself, your name to the banner, or your team name to your graphic are different ways that you can brand yourself and make yourself stand out when you are competing with so many other opportunities. Ask yourself this question: why would someone want to join my business or my team versus someone else's team or business?

Another thing to consider is to keep your banner advertising fresh. If you are using the same banner graphic over time to promote your business, eventually you are going to see a decline in your results. What happens is your prospects are going to glaze over your banner because they've seen it so often. This is similar to using the same banners that everyone in your business opportunity is using to promote with. Call it what you will - saturation, blindness, etc. So what can you do to avoid this? Simply put, change it up! When your click through rate or results start to tank, it's time for a new design or a different look! To stay ahead of your competition, you need to stand out and be unique! Change the coloring, the wording, and the images!

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!
