Here Is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
At IBOtoolbox, you have the ability to get in front of people that are looking for what you have to offer - your target market! You have became the "hunted" instead of the "hunter".

Everything you do on IBO gets indexed in the search engines. It can't be said enough that 96% of the traffic that comes to IBO is non-member traffic. The more you put into IBO, the more likely you will be found! Is it worth it? It absolutely is!

The remaining 4% traffic is member traffic. These are the people that you spend time with building relationships by commenting, sharing and liking other their wall posts, PRs and videos - supporting them through IBOspirit! These are not the people you are advertising to. They are other like minded business owners and you can network and associate with them, but they are not your prospects.

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Have you ever wondered where you can find images to use in your banner graphics or other graphics? You can find images on Google, Flickr and some other places, however most of them are copyrighted meaning you must get permission before using them, you might need to purchase the image or they might have some restrictions on how or where you use them.

If you don't have the rights to use the image, you can get into some trouble. There are also images that contain a very visible watermark on them. You will find these images with watermarks On Google as well as from stock photo sites. You can purchase these images at a very minimal price and they will remove the watermark for you and give you the rights to use them. You should also never assume that because you see an image in someone's else's banner or graphic that it is okay for you to use that image - it's not.

Furthermore, if you are using free hosting from sites like Photobucket or Flickr there is limited storage space, bandwidth capacity and other consequences you might face which without warning, will pull your image from displaying on the Internet. How embarrasing that might be! Below are two resources that are available to 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!

Kris, thank you. You always give great value in these Newsletters. The reminder that our associates are not our prospects can't be stated enough. Also about the Watermarks it is imperative to really check. I almost made the mistake of using one because of the design of the graphic, luckily I noticed it before it was too late.
