Content Ideas for IBO Presss Releases - Training
We have all heard the saying "content is king" and it is, however it's not if it's not original. In fact, it can get you into a lot of trouble if the content that you write in your PR is copied or it is not original. Since IBO does such a wonderful job of getting you ranked up high on the search engines for your chosen key word, tags or company that you promote, it is even more important now to push out good quality content on your press releases. Additionally, PRs are automatically pushed out to IBOsocial's Twitter and Facebook feeds, IBOsocial.com, your IBOsocial profile as well as the IBOtoolbox wall!

So what does this all mean? Good quality, original content can be simple, here are some ideas that will hopefully help you in your writing:

1. Write something that you you know a lot about. Maybe you are an "expert" on a given subject and you want to share that with the community.

2. Give an honest review on something. Maybe you have had an experience about a product or service that you might want to share. The more transparent you can be on this review the better and you will find that it will bring loyal followers to press releases because they trust what you say.

3. Write "how to" press releases. Be as detailed as you can when writing this kind of PR listing step-by-step instructions so it's easy for your reader to follow and apply.

4. Interview someone that might be an expert in your field or someone your target market might be interested in. Publish a question and answer type PR for this one.

5. Tell a story and make it entertaining! Tell something that has happened to you that your readers can relate to.

Hopefully these ideas will give you something to get you started! Most of all remember two things when writing:

1. Be original - your thoughts, your writing - no one else's!

2. Quality posts outweigh quantity!

Just remember to have fun with it, don't stress out! Practice helps you improve your writing skills - the more PRs you write, the better you get at it! You can do a lot with the press release tool at IBO like add video, images and more!

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Are you using a CTA (call to action) in your banner design? If not, you absolutely should be! Your call to action is a just a few words that is put on a button or bar on your banner and believe it or not, can determine the success of that banner! Think about this - how do your visitors know what to do? They don't - they can't read your mind!

But what really is a call to action? Simply put, it tells people what to do next and let's just be clear - it doesn't always mean buy something! You want to take them through your sales funnel - okay, that's another training (smiles).

You CTA could be to:

Learn More
Find Out How
Get Instant Access
Join For Free

Starting to see the picture? You could also add a timeframe or personalization such as:

Join Today
Learn More Now
Get Your Free Trial
Send Me Free Info

They could also show value like:

Special Offer - Limited time
Start getting more traffic

Whatever your CTA is, it must be about what people will get - in as few words as possible so they know what to expect after they click on your banner.
