Here is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
At IBOtoolbox, you have the ability to get in front of people that are looking for what you have to offer - your target market! You have became the "hunted" instead of the "hunter". At IBO there is no need to chase your prospects; in fact, just by writing press releases, posting videos to your profile, running banner and listing ads, and completing your profile - you will be 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!

Simply un-associate with them by clicking on their name which brings up the IBO Member Viewer screen. In the middle of the screen where you see Associate Status, click on "remove associate" next to the red circle with the X in the middle.

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Did you know that just having one good quality banner graphic can boost your sales? Digital display ad spending (banner graphic ads) hit over $32 billion in 2016! A few years ago, Forrester Research reported that, digital display ads (banner graphic ads) are expected to increase to $28 billion in the next five years. In 2012, $12.7 billion was spent on this kind of advertising which means that is advertising has increased a little over 50 percent! Very powerful and the kind of advertising we all should do more of!

So how do we ride this trend without our banners falling into the category of what I like to call "digital distraction"? Let's face it, it is so easy to get distracted because there is just so much to see and learn on the Internet. As users, we try to quickly gloss over websites to find what brought us there in the first place.

Banner graphic advertising is an extremely effective way to get through all the digital clutter and connect with your prospects. You need to have good quality banner graphics that will quickly capture attention prompting the visitor to click on your banner ad boosting your click through rate.

In general, people respond better to images or graphics - banner graphic design is all about creating visual eye candy. The beauty of banner graphic ads is that you can have both images and text on the banner. As marketers we must keep it simple as cluttered banner designs will underperform keeping you from getting your message to your audience. It is also important to keep your text (ad copy) concise and give the benefit(s) to drive engagement and conversions (sales).
