IBO Etiquette - 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...
One of the most important pieces of online marketing is advertising. On the Internet, that is most effectively done with targeted and postioned Banner Graphics.

IBOtoolbox does the targeting/positioning for you, but what do your ads look like? Does it stand out, grab attention, demand a click.... or does it simply blend in with everything else? Here are 2 tips that can help in designing your banner graphics.

When creating your banner graphic, you want to make sure that your design is well balanced. Let's say you have a great background image that you want use. You add some text to it but it gets lost in the image because the colors in your background are too strong, making the text almost impossible to read. By adding a shape with a transparency behind your text it makes your text easy to read and stand out.

If you have selected a clear/simple background or abstract image (one that has light colors), you will want to select a strong font with a dark color ensuring that there is enough contrast to stand over your background. Finally, add a nice border around the background image to frame out your graphic. The color of the border could be the same color as the text or a contrasting color.

Every banner graphic designed at Bizopbanners is unique to the person ordering. I invite you to come over and take a look at how I can help you promote your business.
