Welcome to IBOtoolbox News!
Welcome to Issue 178 of IBOtoolbox News! Even in the middle of the summer, what is consider the slowest time of the year, IBOtoolbox continues to grow exponentially! More and more members are sharing this fantastic platform with their friends and collegues and it's no wonder, IBO has proven itself to be the most dynamic marketing platform on the internet! Thank you for reading IBOtoolbox News, enjoy your newsletter!

Here's What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
I encourage you all to take advantage of the next few months and continue to use IBO to move your business forward daily. You will be way ahead of your competition if you don't miss a beat! 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.

Even better, 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? So get busy, grab your IBO promotional links and graphics at Referral Links under Site Navigation at IBOtoolbox and start spreading the word!
Content For IBO Press 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.

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!
