Banners, Graphics, and More...
Whether you're new to internet marketing or you're making five figures a month, there's one thing you must not overlook.....graphics.

Here's the thing, whether it's a sales letter, a squeeze page, a page on your website or blog, or banner graphic, people respond to the quality of images. That being said, shoddy images are like shoddy merchandise... no one wants anything to do with them.

Having high-quality graphics can boost conversions and increase sales because people respond to images. Studies show that 10% of people are likely to remember something they read on the Internet but that percentage grows to 65% when that information has graphics. Now, let's take that a bit further. People follow directions better when those direction (call to action) are presented with some kind of illustration (graphic) - in fact, a huge 323% better!

Here are a couple of guidelines when creating your own graphics that I recommend you follow:

1. Avoid using blurry images in your graphics. Not only are they hard to see, they look very unprofessional.

2. Never stretch your images! They end up looking distorted. It is always better to crop them.

If you create unique graphics, people will remember them and also remember your the content you put on that graphic as well!

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!
