Here is What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
We are in the middle of what is considered the slowest time for marketers. The good news is that if you continue to move your business forward on a daily basis, you will be way ahead of your competition! One of the best ways to do that and the easiest ways is to refer your fellow marketers to IBOtoolbox! I can hear you all say "what???", but just hear me out! When you are constantly in front of people promoting your business, people become "numb" to what you are saying. Why not offer them something that is of value, something that they can use to build their business? When you do that, people see you as helping them first - because all anyone wants to know is "what's in it for me", right? You are now being known as the helpful person instead of just another marketer promoting a business. This sets you aside from all the rest, then you begin to build that relationship with them and business will flow naturally.

In addition, when you refer others to IBOtoolbox and they complete their profile and earn their first star, you are awarded with 200 IBO credits (400 if you are an IBOcontributor) that you can use to advertise your business on the platform! That is huge and let's face it, we are all here to get extra exposure for our business, right?

Take advantage of this slow time and refer new members, encourage them to participate in the platform and take the training at MarketWithKris.com - it will benefit everyone! To pick up your invite links, splash pages and a variety of other promotional items, just click on "Referral Links" under "Site Navigation" at IBOtoolbox!

 
Maintaining a Professional Presence at IBOtoolbox - Training
Social media is all about engaging with others and building relationships - after all we are in the "relationship marketing" business! Those members that truly engage with others and share value instead of constantly trying to get you to join their business are going to reap the rewards and be more successful! Keeping in mind that 96% of IBOtoolbox's traffic is non-member traffic, you never know who might be looking at you... a future team member, a customer, etc. So while you are engaging and participating at IBO, here are some important things to keep in mind:

Be positive - When you post PR's, wall entries and comment on other member PR's, wall entries or videos, make sure that you keep it positive. Remember the old saying - "if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything".

No screaming - Using all caps in your ads, posts, PR or comments, is a good way to get ignored and is generally viewed as uneducated and rude. This practice is considered "screaming" and most people are offended by this.

Engage in IBOspirit - By sharing other member wall posts, PR's and videos on your social networks, you are engaging in IBOspirit. When you do this, others will often return the favor. The members that participate in this see even greater results with IBOtoolbox!

"No Adult" material - IBOtoolbox has a strict "no adult" material policy! Help us keep IBO professional!

Do not spam associates through the chat system/instant messenger - Everyone at IBOtoolbox has something to sell. It is not good practice to associate with members just to send them your opportunity. Instead, use the system correctly to establish a true relationship. Your opportunities are very visible to the members for them to see, so don't force it.

The IBO community is like any other neighborhood ~ good news and bad news both travel at lightening speed! Be a generous member of the IBO community! Help out where you can. Congratulate people on their successes and provide a shoulder for those who have been hurt. Celebrate often! Pass along compliments and take time to thank those that have helped you in your success. Welcome new members on board and associate with them. Begin building a true relationship first without trying selling them on your business opportunity. After all, we all have a common goal ~ let's work together for our combined success! Go IBO!

Banners, Graphics, and More...
The colors that you use to create a banner graphic can play a very important role in getting your message across to your audience. Color is one of the key components in attracting attention so it is pretty important that you make a wise decision when it comes to choosing colors for your banner. Believe it or not, when it comes to marketing, there really is a psychology in using certain colors. If you know me, I like to keep things simple however if you understand how each color is perceived by others, that can only strengthen your marketing, right?!

I am not going to get into shades, tones, contrasts, etc. Let's take a look at the basics colors and what emotion each color evokes to help you design that perfect banner graphic to effectively get your message across to your audience.

Blue - Trust, Dependability, Loyalty, Strength

Green - Peace, Nature, Growth, Money

Yellow - Optimism, Warmth, Curiousity, Happy

Orange - Confidence, Cheerful, Friendly, Ambitious

Red - Energy, Bold, Youthful, Excitement

Black - Credible, Powerful, Professional, Authority

White - Clean, Clarity, Simple, Truth
