Welcome to IBOtoolbox News!
Welcome to Issue 129 of IBOtoolbox News! There are many social media sites on the Internet, IBO differs from them and is unique. IBO is geared toward business owners to help you promote your business and brand you in a very professional manner. "IBO" stands for "Independant Business Owners". It's environment was created for this and welcomes it, unlike other platforms where doing business is frowned upon and on some not allowed. Thank you for reading IBOtoolbox News, enjoy your newsletter!

Here's 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, get them to the training webinars - 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!
How to Set Up a Banner Ad - Training
Running ads at IBOtoolbox can get you more exposure for your business than any other paid or free platform can! IBOtoolbox's advertising system will bring in the most targeted audience that you will find anywhere on the Internet. Because IBOtoolbox receives close to 250,000 visitors daily that are looking for business opportunities they can make money with and they are finding your products and services through search engines or through IBO's vast social media network. This a non-incentivized visitor/prospect base - the best there is! You will generally find a better click through rate on banner ads because people respond better to graphic images. Banner ads ran at IBO average a click through rate of 3-10% although many members have reported higher rates! Other factors that determine your click through rate are the banner size, where it is ran on IBOtoolbox!

IBOtoolbox News is looking for members that want to help out with the newsletter by being a Guest Writer. This is a great opportunity for you to earn an extra 500 credits and extra exposure and also help other members learn about the amazing tools and resources we have available to us here at IBO. We are looking for members to share their expertise or insight on how to use an IBO feature or tool; think of it as a training article. The article must be approximately 300-500 words. Please do not submit articles that serve as a promotion for IBOtoolbox. Send your article to editor@ibotoolboxnews.com If your article is selected, it will be published in the newsletter and appear here, giving you full credit as the Guest Writer with a link back to your IBOsocial profile page, along with awarding you 500 credits!
IBOtoolbox Tip of the Week!
Every ad that is ran on IBO has 2 links. One link goes to the ad target (your URL) and one back to your IBOsocial profile. This is really important to understand as many members use the link that goes back to your IBOsocial profile to learn more about you. Both links are counted as clicks so keep in mind that if you are tracking clicks with a 3rd party software, not all clicks will show because some of them are clicks back to your IBOsocial profile.

Member Testimonials
I have been a member of IBOtoolbox since March 2012 and I have to share this with all of you that this has been the only way that my business ops have been noticed more than any other program I have posted them on. I have also had a bit of success with members joining them. Sharing is caring and IBOtoolbox has really gone all out to make sure that we as F.R.E.E. members get the best possible exposure out there that they can offer. Who would want to pay for all that IBO offers when the exposure from here is 100 times better - Sharing on Twitter, Google + and any other possible sharing site. Having the Press Release option and now authenticating the PR's is 100% better as Google does not like plagiarism. Everything is set up so nicely so that we know exactly how to place ads convert codes to get free credits and how we can earn badges. Being active on IBO also plays a big role in how we can make a difference to our name and status. So all I can say is GO IBO you R.O.C.K.

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Each member at IBOtoolbox has an IBOsocial profile page. Everything that you enter into IBOtoolbox is visible on your IBOsocial profile page - your picture, your contact information, your PRs, videos, wall posts, stars and badges, banner ads and customized profile graphics. Your IBOsocial profile page is YOUR page, your public storefront - where the public sees you! Since 96% of IBO's traffic is non-member traffic, it's extremely important that your profile is completely set up ready to receive the visitors that have found you through search results based on the content that you have put into IBO.

Since this is "your page" it is crucial that you are running your own banner ad. People will find you and if you don't have a banner running on your IBOsocial profile page, another member has their's displayed. You don't want to miss a sale! Every banner ad ran on IBO has two links - one to your website and the other to your IBOsocial profile page. If you are not running a banner on your page, you risk the opportunity of not only losing a sale, but also losing a visitor to someone else's profile page which could be a potential loss of a referral for you at IBOtoolbox.

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

Summer Special Offer: Purchase any 728X90 banner, static or animated - receive a FREE duplicate 468X60 banner to run on your IBOsocial profile page! Click here to place your order. Free set up and activation in your IBOtoolbox account as well as free hosting is included for both banners plus 1000 IBO credits transferred to your account!

Fantastic newsletter... I love the part about providing content rather than simply blasting the opportunity... very wise words. I take more notice of contributors with content, rather than simply "buy my stuff" - Thanks Kris :-)

I just want to note for the record that I am also getting "ERROR: EXPIRED COUPON" on the Redeem Credit coupon "news-bepositive". I would appreciate an email once the matter is resolved. Thanks
Raine Carosin  - www.ibosocial.com/rcarosin   38 hour(s) ago
Hi, thank you for the informative site. And the good advertising benefits I enjoy for free. Just a note that today's "redeem for credit" 'news-bepositive' didn't work for me. I tried several different times and several different ways, but, alas, I was informed that the coupon had expired. Anyways, I'm sure there must be some answer as to why it didn't work, and it may very well be my mistake. Kind regards, RAine Carosin
