Banners, Graphics, and More...
I am often asked which banner size gets the best results or best click through rate at IBOtoolbox. There are three banner sizes that are available for you to run at IBOtoolbox:

468X60 Banner This banner is one of the most common size banners and can be ran on your IBOsocial profile, other members IBOsocial profiles, IBOsocial.com main page, IBOjunction.com, IBOtoolbox News and IBOgigs. This size banner averages between 3-5% click through rate.

250X250 Banner This size banner can be ran on IBOtoolbox Right, IBOtoolbox News, HomeBizBlogs.com and IBOtube Right. The click through rate on this size banner averages between 5-7%.

728X90 Banner This banner is referred to as a "Leaderboard" banner and is probably the most popular size used and for good reason! This size averages an 8-15% click through rate!

To figure out what your click through rate or CTR is, simply take the number of clicks divided by the number of views (impressions or times the banner is actually shown). Remember, the main objective of a banner is a "click" to get the visitor to a site that will give them enough reason to join a business, purchase a product or ask for more information.

Your IBOsocial page is "prime" real estate! Don't allow another member to occupy your space! Visit BizOpBanners.com today and order your 468x60 static or animated banner graphic. If you want to customize your profile even more, we can do that too!

Back by popular demand!! Special BUSINESS BUILDER IBOstarter Pack: Purchase any 728X90 banner, static or animated - receive a FREE duplicate 468X60 banner to run on your IBOsocial profile page!

Keeping up to date with what's going on at IBO, has not been one of my "strengths" as you may well already know. I do intend on participating more often as I adjust to a new "life schedule" especially now that the warmer weather is here. I apologize to all members for my mostly non-participation over the last year or so. Kris, I appreciate your very useful and easy to understand video on how to use the IBO banner creator and all you do for us here. Just one more great addition to IBO.
