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!

Member Testimonials
Just a brief note to let others know of the success I get when I advertise with IBO. Each and every time I set up a new banner ad with Kris, my sales jump up immediately for as long as my banner ad is running. If anyone needs to advertise, this is the place. Compared to other advertising, the cost to set a banner ad up is very low and the running of the ad is FREE. Where else can you get that kind Internet market advertising? No where that I know. Thanks IBO for getting my product in front of so many. One other thing, your Webinars are super training, I learn something new each time.

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Designing a banner graphic is more than putting some images and text together, it's about telling a story. As a marketer, you should know the importance of stories, but do you know how to tell a story with very little or no words at all? Consider this - our brains process pictures 60,000 times faster than text. That being said, it is clear why banner graphics get higher click thru rates than other types of advertising.

By using banner graphics, your audience is able to decide very quickly whether they want to find out more/see more about what you are offering. Those banner graphics have to be designed correctly to tell your visual story. Too many times I see banners that are designed using more words than graphics. If there is too much text, it will take too much time to read and you'll lose your audience. One short headline/phrase that creates enough curiosity for the visitor to want to find out more with a strong call to action and quality graphics that help tell the story is all you need.

If you want results, it is very important that your advertising look professional and appealling. Going along with IBOtoolbox being a platform comprised of "professional independent business owners", it is critical that you don't use clip art, watermarked images, or cut and paste words of different fonts into your graphics. This will only discourage your viewer from joining your business or purchasing a product.
