Here is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
Just looking around IBO, you can really tell that members are starting to get really serious about building their business and getting extra exposure. Comments on PRs and wall posts are increasing in quality. Members are realizing that everything they do gets indexed and the better the quality, the more they are certain to get recognized! Keep in mind that visitors are finding you based on the content you have put into IBO. You don't have to chase these visitors to come to you, they are finding you because rather they have "searched" for what you have to offer. Just by writing press releases, posting videos to your profile, running banner and listing ads, commenting and completing your profile - you are being found! Everything you do on IBO gets indexed in the search engines. It can't be said enough that 96% of the traffic that comes to IBO is non-member traffic. The more you put into IBO, the more likely you will be found! Is it worth it? It absolutely is!

The remaining 4% traffic is member traffic. These are the people that you spend time with building relationships by commenting, sharing and liking other their wall posts, PRs and videos - supporting them through IBOspirit! These are not the people you are advertising to. They are other like minded business owners and you can network and associate with them, but they are not your prospects. Once you really understand this, there is no limit as to how powerful IBO can be for you!

 
IBOsearch System - Training
IBOtoolbox has its own member search system. Utilizing this system you can search by name, demographics, business and more! Here's exactly how it works:

To access the IBO Search feature, click on "Search" under Site Navigation at the top right of the dashboard screen. You are now at the search section where you will see different categories. Let's breakdown each one to show you what they are capable of.

1. Member Name - Here you can search by First Name, Last name, Phone Number, or Skype Username.

2. Demographics - This category gives you the choice to search by Country, State/Province, or City. This is a great feature especially if you are looking like-minded business owners to network with in a certain geographic location.

3. Business - This is a great one if you are looking for other members from your company or your competitor's company. You might have a certain business or company that you want to join and are looking for a great sponsor!

4. Associates & Referrals - In this category you can search by all IBO members, include only your associates, exclude your associates, or include only your referrals.

5. Joined IBOtoolbox - Here you can search by join date range. Select dates from the calendar icons for the "From" and "To" by entering a specific join date range!

However you would like to conduct your search, just click on the box or circle next to each sub-category and enter in the relevant information in the box provided on the right and click on "Search IBOtoolbox" and you will see what your inquiry came up with! You can also use IBOsearch.com or your own branded search engine located on your IBOsocial profile page.

IBOtoolbox Tip of the Week!

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...
Have you ever on wondered why you are no one is clicking on your banner or your click through rate is very low? Here are a few reasons why:

1. You are advertising to the wrong audience. This is pretty self-explanatory, however if your banner ad is about classes on auto mechanics, IBOtoolbox is probably the wrong place to run that banner ad.

2. Your banner ad is distracting to your audience. It's flashing, has neon colors and is just getting in the way of people getting the information they came for when visiting that page. This type of banner ad will not only get a very low click thru rate, but more than likely cause the person to go somewhere else. Banner ads with relevant information that look like they belong on the website will get the best CTR.

3. You are using banner ads that your business opportunity has supplied you with. Think about this one for a minute.... EVERYONE is using those banners! So very quickly saturation comes into play and when these banners are shown, people ignore them because they already know what they are going to see when they click on them.

4. Finally, tell your audience why they should click on your banner - how you can help them, etc. Also, make sure you tell them what they need to do next with a "call to action" such as "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!
