Here's What's Happening at IBOtoolbox!
Traffic at IBOtoolbox is going through the roof! We are about to finish the month of August with over 10 million visitors! These visitors are finding you based on the content tht you have put into IBO. You didn't have to chase these visitors to come to you, rather they have "hunted" for what you have to offer. Just by writing press releases, posting videos to your profile, running banner and listing ads, and completing your profile - you are being 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!
Understanding How IBOtoolbox Works - Training
There are three different websites that make up IBOtoolbox. If you understand how each one of these sites play a part in helping you build your business and get you in front of your target market, it can make your experience and results that much more powerful!

IBOtoolbox.com - IBOtoolbox is really your back office where you enter in your information and content. You will post your banner and listing ads, press releases and videos plus complete your profile. IBOtoolbox houses all of your tools, apps and widgets that play an important role in building your business. Members who take the time to familiarize themselves and utilize everything that IBO has to offer see more success in their business!

IBOsocial.com/USERNAME - IBOsocial is your public storefront. This is where the outside traffic sees you. Your press releases, videos and links are visable here along with your information, your picture and your ads and other social networks. All of your IBO widgets/apps (wall plates, dynamic email signature, IBOurls) all point back to your IBOsocial profile.

Homebizblogs.com - Homebizblogs is a search engine catchers mitt. This is where your press releases are automatically posted to along with linking back to your IBOsocial page. The most important thing to keep in mind is where your information is being displayed. Remember that 96 percent of the traffic that IBO receives is non-member traffic. That being said, realize that your wall posts, press releases and comments show up on IBOsocial main hub and on your IBOsocial profile!

IBOtoolbox Tip of the Week!
Being an associate does not mean that you are a prospect. If you associate with someone that sends you messages or chats that you don't want, remember that you are always in control. 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.

Special Note: Looking for more tips? Just visit the IBOhelpdesk FAQ Section!

Banners, Graphics, and More...
When you are marketing on the Internet, the most important piece of your marketing is advertising. Banner graphics and other graphics will get you a much higher click through rate than any other type of advertising. When you couple that with a site like IBOtoolbox that does all the targeting and positioning for you, you have a huge advantage over your competition.

Believe it or not, some can really mess this up by skimping on their advertising by using free banner makers. Worse yet, people viewing these banner graphics can tell. More times than none, the website of the maker you used to design your "free" banner is prominently displayed on your banner to help promote the banner site and cannot be removed. In exchange for them offering a free service, you are helping to advertise and brand them, not you.

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, and while you're there make sure to click here to read what other IBO members are saying about their experience with Bizopbanners!

Kris, thanks for the reminder that we are being 'hunted' by using IBO. That's the sort of traffic we need.
David Sharp  - www.ibosocial.com/davidgsharp   3 day(s) ago
It's quite amazing to think that the traffic here on IBOtoolbox has exceeded 10,000,000 visitors this month alone.
Fred Mugone  - www.ibosocial.com/fredds   3 day(s) ago
Kriss, great training, tips, and a reminder of the basics: 4% (400,000) of the traffic is member traffic (who are NOT our prospects but who we should be building relationships with), while 96% (9,600,000) is non member traffic - traffic that comes hunting for what we IBO members have to offer.

Cannot emphasize enough the importance of writing an publishing press releases as well as the use of videos. This is great information to share with those IBO members who are not fully taking advantage of what this platform offers. 10MM visitors is quite an accomplishment.
Lis Berridge  - www.ibosocial.com/lis247   4 day(s) ago
Great information and training for newbies like me.
