Here Is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
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!

 
Learning How IBOtoolbox Works - Training
There are two different websites that make up IBOtoolbox. If you understand how each one of these sites play a part in helping you build your business and get you in front of your target market, it can make your experience and results that much more powerful!

IBOtoolbox.com - IBOtoolbox is really your back office where you enter in your information and content. You will post your banner and listing ads, press releases and videos plus complete your profile. IBOtoolbox houses all of your tools, apps and widgets that play an important role in building your business. Members who take the time to familiarize themselves and utilize everything that IBO has to offer see more success in their business!

IBOsocial.com/USERNAME - IBOsocial is your public storefront. This is where the outside traffic sees you. Your press releases, videos and links are visable here along with your information, your picture and your ads and other social networks. All of your IBO widgets/apps (wall plates, dynamic email signature, IBOurls) all point back to your IBOsocial profile.

The most important thing to keep in mind is where your information is being displayed. Remember that 96 percent of the traffic that IBO receives is non-member traffic. That being said, realize that your wall posts, press releases and comments show up on IBOsocial main hub and on your IBOsocial profile!

 
IBOtoolbox Tip of the Week!
Using the IBOurl is a great way to shorten and mask long affiliate links. When using an IBOurl, it places a menu bar at the top of any webpage that creates branding for you in a very professional manner. You can also choose to let your visitors have quick access to your videos, press releases and social networks with this menu bar. This menu bar can capture leads for you by selecting to display a "learn more" form or "create IBOtoolbox account" form as well as give your visitor an opportunity to chat live with you! Isn't that cool! To set up IBOurls, just click on IBO Apps/IBOurl under Site Navigation at IBOtoolbox to create an IBOurl.

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Each member at IBOtoolbox has an IBOsocial profile page. Everything that you enter into IBOtoolbox is visible on your IBOsocial profile page - your picture, your contact information, your PRs, videos, wall posts, stars and badges, banner ads and customized profile graphics. Your IBOsocial profile page is YOUR page, your public storefront - where the public sees you! Since 96% of IBO's traffic is non-member traffic, it's extremely important that your profile is completely set up ready to receive the visitors that have found you through search results based on the content that you have put into IBO.

This page is really all about you! That being said, there are two very important components that you should be aware of. First of all, you should have your banner running on your IBOsocial profile page. People will find you and if you don't have your banner running on your IBOsocial profile page, another member has their's displayed. You don't want to miss a sale! Every banner ad ran on IBO has two links - one to your website and the other to your IBOsocial profile page. If you are not running a banner on your page, you risk the opportunity of not only losing a sale, but also losing a visitor to someone else's profile page which could be a potential loss of a referral for you at IBOtoolbox.

The other component is customizing your IBOsocial profile page (step 5) to further brand you and your business. Customization looks very professional and you have the capability of adding graphics and more that will grab the attention of your visitors. Remember, the more information you have on your page the better chance you have to be successful!

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! Click here to place your order. Free set up and activation in your IBOtoolbox account as well as free hosting is included for both banners plus 1000 IBO credits transferred to your account!

IBO spirit is awesome and I recommend it highly. You'll get branding and massive exposure for the press releases/videos when you care and share. The person that shares a PR/video will be putting their name and face online (branding) and a backlink to all your social media profile on the internet. ~Terri Pattio - MLM Coach/Mentor with a servant's heart/Twitter Strategist
