Here Is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
IBO continues to ride along with what is considered to be the busiest time of the year for network marketers and remains a solid performing platform for independent business owners for over seven years! Why... because IBO continues to do everything right and it works! There is no black hat SEO tricks or any of that nonsense going on here! The visitors that come to IBO are looking for what you have to offer based on the information you have put into the platform. This is "true" organic search engine traffic, the best kind of traffic you can get! Visitors are arriving at IBO because they have put in search terms that equal what you have written about in your press releases, wall posts and comments you have left. They are actually interested in what you have to offer!

Who Are You Really Marketing To At IBOtoolbox - Training
One of the biggest misconceptions at IBOtoolbox is members think that they are marketing to the other members. To clear this up, there are three things that every member needs to know:

1. IBOtoolbox gets an average of 350,000 visitors each day.
2. 96 percent of the daily traffic is non-member traffic.
3. 4 percent of the daily traffic is member traffic.

Additionally, realize that everything you do at IBOtoolbox gets indexed in the search engines - your press releases, your wall posts, and your comments all get indexed. This creates organic traffic - meaning that your activity is being found by people going to the search engines and entering in search terms that equal your active - PRs, comments, wall posts. This is how that 96 percent of the daily traffic finds you.

Member traffic, 4 percent of the daily traffic, will see your press releases, wall posts and comments that show up on the dashboard as activity. Those members will comment, like and reply to your activity which helps your posts be seen by everyone but mostly the non-member traffic that see the activity from the outside looking in.

Think about this - every member at IBO is promoting a business, right? But almost every non-member that is coming to IBO is searching for a way to make money, a certain business, service or product based on the content that you have put into IBO and the search terms they have entered into the engines. Additionally this non-member traffic could be searching for that perfect sponsor that could be very well be you!

Banners, Graphics, and More...
If you are experiencing poor results with your banner ads, here are few ways to design a better banner ad:

1. Make sure your message is clear and concise. Think about what the purpose of your banner is - generate traffic to a web page, gain optins, purchase a product or become an affiliate. Compose your message around this purpose.

2. Keep it simple with a clean layout - no clutter. One huge mistake a see too often is that there is too much information on the banner. Just remember less information is better.

3. Make sure you are not using tricks or gimmicks in your banner. When someone clicks on your banner to find out it was totally different than the message you banner was displaying, you have just lost their trust and will more than likely never have a change to earn it back.

4. When designing a banner ad, to get the best results, a clean design is best. A simple layout for a 468X60 or 728X90 banner would include:

* Image on the left. It is important to use a good quality image and have it be relevant to what you are advertising.

* Your value propositon message - short, clear message.

* The call to action - this can be a button like "Click Here", "More Info", etc.

The details of the banner ad design should be relevant to the page your visitors go to when clicking on your banner. In otherwords, your visitor feels comfortable when arriving your page. Designing a banner in this way results in a higher click through rate leading to the possibility of more sales.

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!
