Welcome to IBOtoolbox News!
Welcome to Issue 321 of IBOtoolbox News! Over 7 years of being online, IBOtoolbox continues to make its way virally through the Internet! As more people are visiting the site searching for what you have to offer, it is more important than ever to get your profile set up completely! Get ready and be prepared because we couldn't stop it now even if we wanted to! Thank you for reading IBOtoolbox News, enjoy your newsletter!

 
Here Is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
Members are encouraged to take advantage of everything IBOtoolbox has to offer to move your business forward daily. If you "get all in", you will be way ahead of your competition! In addition to utilizing all the tools and resources, refer fellow marketers to IBOtoolbox! This is a great way to give value! When you are constantly in front of people promoting your business, people become "numb" to what you are saying. By offering IBOtoolbox, you are introducing them to 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.

Keep in mind, 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? So get busy, grab your IBO promotional links and graphics at Referral Links under Site Navigation at IBOtoolbox and start spreading the word!

 
How to Achieve & Maintain IBOtoolbox Stars & Badges - Training
At IBOtoolbox you get rewarded for your activity. The more decorated you are, the more visible you will become and with that comes more success! The best way to stay on course is to ultilize IBO's OnTrack feature located on the right side of the dashboard. OnTrack functions in "real time" monitoring your activity within the site and rewards you with stars. If you click on the links just to the left of any of the arrows (green or red) you will get a report that will tell you what you need to do to achieve the star and what you need to do to maintain it.

STARS (OnTrack)

At IBO, you have the ability of earning 6 stars. These stars are achieved by completing the following tasks:

1. Receive a star for completing sections 1-3 of your profile.
2. Receive a star for publishing a press release within the last 48 hours.
3. Receive a star for engaging and posting on the wall within the last 24 hours.
4. Receive a star for getting a referral to IBOtoolbox within the last 5 days.
5. Receive a star for running advertising within the last 48 hours.
6. Receive a star for commenting on other members press releases and videos.

IBO members can also be recognized with badges that identify them as leaders on the platform. Here are the different categories and how they are achieved:

IBO BIGDOGs

These are the Top 10 IBO members who have the most advertisements shown. These members receive the IBO BIGDOG badge and this list resets daily. Members can either earn credits by publishing press releases, referring new members or by purchasing advertising credits. New IBO members receive 500 credits when they complete their profile.

TOP Enrollers

These are the Top 10 IBO members who received the most amount of IBO referrals. These members receive a trophy cup and this list resets weekly, from Sunday to Saturday Midnight EST.

Traffic Leaders

These are the Top 10 members who received the most visits to their IBO profiles. These members receive a checkered flag and this list resets daily.

IBO Contributor Badge

This badge goes to members who purchase credits and/or have an active subscription to ClubIBO to advertise their business. This badge is displayed to show off their support for IBOtoolbox! This badge is good for 30 days from the time of purchase. Members that are IBOcontributors earn double credits for PRs, comments, and referrals. **Special Note: ClubIBO member credit purchases are doubled even on sale packages and active ClubIBO members earn 50 percent commission on their referral credit purchases!

It's important to keep in mind that the more you engage, participate and interact on the platform, the more you will get recognized and the more people you will attract. If you get stuck on something or one of your arrows turns red, just refer back to IBOtoolbox OnTrack!

Banners, Graphics, and More...
So many of us suffer from what I like to call "digital distraction". It's easy to get distracted because there is just so much to see and learn on the Internet. As users, we try to quickly gloss over websites to find what brought us there in the first place.

Banner graphic advertising is an extremely effective way to get through all the digital clutter and connect with your prospects. Good quality banner graphics will capture attention prompting the visitor to click on your banner ad boosting your click through rate.

In general, people respond better to images or graphics - banner graphic design is all about creating visual eye candy. The beauty of banner graphic ads is that you can have both images and text on the banner. It's important to standout, but at the same token you don't want to clutter your banner graphic with too many images or text.

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!

Special BUSINESS BUILDER IBOstarter Pack: Purchase any 728X90 banner, static or animated - receive a FREE duplicate 468X60 banner to run on your IBOsocial profile page!
