Maintaining a Professional Presence at IBOtoolbox - Training
Social media is all about engaging with others and building relationships - after all we are in the "relationship marketing" business! Those members that truly engage with others and share value instead of constantly trying to get you to join their business are going to reap the rewards and be more successful! Keeping in mind that 96% of IBOtoolbox's traffic is non-member traffic, you never know who might be looking at you... a future team member, a customer, etc. So while you are engaging and participating at IBO, here are some important things to keep in mind:

Be positive - When you post PR's, wall entries and comment on other member PR's, wall entries or videos, make sure that you keep it positive. Remember the old saying - "if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything".

No screaming - Using all caps in your ads, posts, PR or comments, is a good way to get ignored and is generally viewed as uneducated and rude. This practice is considered "screaming" and most people are offended by this.

Engage in IBOspirit - By sharing other member wall posts, PR's and videos on your social networks, you are engaging in IBOspirit. When you do this, others will often return the favor. The members that participate in this see even greater results with IBOtoolbox!

"No Adult" material - IBOtoolbox has a strict "no adult" material policy! Help us keep IBO professional!

Do not spam associates through the chat system/instant messenger - Everyone at IBOtoolbox has something to sell. It is not good practice to associate with members just to send them your opportunity. Instead, use the system correctly to establish a true relationship. Your opportunities are very visible to the members for them to see, so don't force it.

The IBO community is like any other neighborhood ~ good news and bad news both travel at lightening speed! Be a generous member of the IBO community! Help out where you can. Congratulate people on their successes and provide a shoulder for those who have been hurt. Celebrate often! Pass along compliments and take time to thank those that have helped you in your success. Welcome new members on board and associate with them. Begin building a true relationship first without trying selling them on your business opportunity. After all, we all have a common goal ~ let's work together for our combined success! Go IBO!

 
IBOtoolbox Tip of the Week!
If you want to succeed on IBOtoolbox you need to participate. You need to maintain as many stars as you can, you need to run as many ads as you can, you need to provide good feedback on comments, and you need to add value to the system!

Banners, Graphics, and More...
If you are experiencing poor results with your banner ads, here are few ways to design a better banner ad:

1. Make sure your message is clear and concise. Think about what the purpose of your banner is - generate traffic to a web page, gain optins, purchase a product or become an affiliate. Compose your message around this purpose.

2. Keep it simple with a clean layout - no clutter. One huge mistake a see too often is that there is too much information on the banner. Just remember less information is better.

3. Make sure you are not using tricks or gimmicks in your banner. When someone clicks on your banner to find out it was totally different than the message you banner was displaying, you have just lost their trust and will more than likely never have a change to earn it back.

4. When designing a banner ad, to get the best results, a clean design is best. A simple layout for a 468X60 or 728X90 banner would include:

* Image on the left. It is important to use a good quality image and have it be relevant to what you are advertising.

* Your value propositon message - short, clear message.

* The call to action - this can be a button like "Click Here", "More Info", etc.

The details of the banner ad design should be relevant to the page your visitors go to when clicking on your banner. In otherwords, your visitor feels comfortable when arriving your page. Designing a banner in this way results in a higher click through rate leading to the possibility of more 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!
