How To Set Up and Run Banner Ads - Training
One of the best features on IBOtoolbox is the ability to run ads. Banner ads are seen by members as well as non-member traffic that comes to IBOtoolbox, so it is important to get your banners set up and displayed correctly. To set up your banner, follow the steps below:

1. Go to "My Advertising" under Site Navigation and click on "Create New". You will see a box appear where you can select the type of ad you wish to create. Select the size banner ad to create by clicking on the appropriate button. Below each button, it tells you how many impressions (views) each different ad costs.


2. The next step is to build your ad. The first thing you are going to do is give your ad a name. You will enter that in the box to the right of "Friendly Name". This name is for your reference only so name it whatever you want.

3. Since we are going to build a 468X60 banner ad, you will see "Ad Type: 468X60 Banner".

4. Below that you will see "Website Link". In the box to the right, enter in your target website - this is the website you want your visitor to go to when they click on your banner. This could be an affiliate site, product website, etc. Example: http://www.mysite.com/xyz

5. The next box is for the "Graphic URL". This URL will give the location of where the banner is remotely hosted. Basically, this tells IBOtoolbox where to pull that image from on the Internet. This URL will always end in either .jpg, .gif, or .png. Example: http://www.mysite.com/image/banner123.jpg

6. Now you are going to set the "Display Speed" which is how you want your banner ads delivered or shown. You can choose from "Default", "Fast", "Slow" or "Very Slow".

7. The next selection is "Display Ad On". You can choose from My IBOsocial Profile, Other Member IBOsocial Profiles, IBOsocial.com Main Page, IBOtoolbox Newsletter, IBOgigs, IBOtoolbox Wall and IBOanswers Top. You can select to have your banner ran on 1 or all of these different locations.

8. When you are all done setting up your banner ad, click on "Save".

9. Finally to make sure that your banner is displaying correctly, scroll down to "My Advertising" and find your banner ad by Ad Name. Click on the "Preview" button to preview the banner to make sure it displays.

10. Your final step is to activate your ad. You will see "OFF" in red. You will need to click on the "Turn On" button to activate your banner ad. Once you do that, you will see "RUNNING" in green. At anytime you can go back and turn off the ad. By clicking on the "EDIT" button, you can edit the ad, reset counters or delete it if you want.

Running ads at IBOtoolbox can get you more exposure for your business than any other paid or free platform can! IBOtoolbox's advertising system will bring in the most targeted audience that you will find anywhere on the Internet. Because IBOtoolbox receives over 300,000 visitors daily that are looking for business opportunities they can make money with and they are finding your products and services through search engines or through IBO's vast social media network. This a non-incentivized visitor/prospect base - the best there is! You will generally find a better click through rate on banner ads because people respond better to graphic images. Banner ads ran at IBO average a click through rate of 3-10% although many members have reported higher rates! Other factors that determine your click through rate are the banner size, where it is ran on IBOtoolbox!

 
IBOtoolbox Tip of the Week!
Stop selling! IBOtoolbox is a "social network". Members who are continually trying to spam their associates or sell the other associates with their business opportunity will not see as much success as those that build a true business relationship. We all should be engaging and interacting with our associates first and foremost, business will follow once those relationships are formed! Press releases, videos, banner and listing ads as well as posting on the wall is the best way to get the word out about your business!

Banners, Graphics, and More...
When you are marketing on the Internet, the most important piece of your marketing is advertising. Banner graphics and other graphics will get you a much higher click through rate than any other type of advertising. When you couple that with a site like IBOtoolbox that does all the targeting and positioning for you, you have a huge advantage over your competition.

Believe it or not, some can really mess this up by skimping on their advertising by using free banner makers. Worse yet, people viewing these banner graphics can tell. More times than none, the website of the maker you used to design your "free" banner is prominently displayed on your banner to help promote the banner site and cannot be removed. In exchange for them offering a free service, you are helping to advertise and brand them, not you. 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!

One of the things that holds true for every business owner is you have to be constantly learning. For people who are self branding IBO banner ads are the best. This is because part of your personal brand shows on your IBO social page when people visit.
