Here Is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
One of the best things about IBOtoolbox is that you get awarded for activities that you would normally do on a day-to-day basis on the Internet. To move your business forward and get the exposure you need to be successful, you have the opportunity to run ads at IBOtoolbox and its family of websites. All ads at IBO are ran from credits converted to impressions (views). You have the option of purchasing credits or earning them for free. If you do decide to purchase them, you are awarded with an IBOcontributor Badge that is professionally displayed next to your name on your wall posts along with all your other stars and badges as well as on your profile and ads. In addition, if you are an IBOcontributor you earn double credits for certain activities. To top that off, IBO now is even further recognizing members that are IBOcontributors by stating that their wall posts are an "IBOcontributor Wall Post" along with a green ribbon around your post drawing even more attention to you! Being an IBOcontributor is a great way to give back to a platform that does so much for its members and it also shows others that you are serious about your business!

How to Post a New Wall Entry - Training
The IBOwall features in-line commenting and posting encouraging you to keep the conversation going. You can have a live conversation with members that comment on your wall posts. Here are the steps to start a conversation (wall post) and keep the conversation going (commenting).

Toward the top of the dashboard to the right of the image for the IBO Wall, you will see a link that says add new wall entry


Enter your new wall entry in the box. If you need to make the box bigger for a longer wall post, simply put your cursor on the bottom right corner and drag the box. When you are finished with your wall entry, click on the arrow with the orange circle.


The IBO wall posting system is intended to engage members in conversation, promote business opportunities, informational posts, asking other members questions and more. It's an opportunity to socialize and network with the other members as well as get more exposure for those that engage. When using the wall entry system, it is perfectly fine to post a link, just make sure to include the "http://" in front of the link to make it clickable (making it easy for members and others interested to find out more).


IBOtoolbox is a positive community and does not allow any negativity. Keep in mind that constantly spamming the wall, over promoting your opportunities, posting religious or political discussions, negative remarks, or anything else that does not keep this platform a positive safehaven place for business is prohibited. Fellow members can and will report these prohibited postings that will result in automatic account suspension. By following these simple rules it will help keep the IBO platform the best and most prosperous place to get exposure and conduct business!

 
IBOtoolbox Tip of the Week!
The IBO Wall is a constant and ever moving feed of everything posted in IBOtoolbox. When you post to the wall, it goes into the main feed (wall) of every member. Did you know that you can filter what you see on the wall? For instance you can select to display your Wall Posts, your Associates as well as replies to your posts/comments. Additionally, you can filter wall posts to display New Member posts, Non Associates or just Press Releases. You can also filter the wall by displaying IBO Featured Member, IBO Contributors, IBO Top Enrollers, IBO Big Dogs, or IBO Traffic Leaders posts!

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Creating a banner graphic can be a little more challenging than putting some words and images together. You have about 5 seconds to grab attention and above all, make sure it gets clicked before "digital distraction" kicks in. Designing an effective banner takes creativity and experience. Here are my top 3 traits of an effective banner graphic:

1. Know your audience! This will help you to determine the right text, graphics and color scheme to use.

2. Image Type - when selecting images, it is best to use a "PNG" image. This format was specifically designed for the web. This image format saves color information more efficiently and also supports a transparent background enabling you to do a lot more with the image such as shadowing, outlining and other effects. Using PNG images can make your banner graphic "POP" drawing more attention!

3. Make your call to action stand out! Be as direct and clear as possible making it simple for them to know what it is that you want them to do. Example: if you want them to visit your website, have a button on your banner that says "Click Here".

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!
