How to Associate - Training
At IBOtoolbox, members are referred to as "associates". By associating with other IBOtoolbox members, you are able to build a business relationship with them first, letting them get to know, like and trust you - this is very attractive to a lot of people. Utilizing social media, it's no longer about selling your products, services or business opportunity or "in your face" marketing, it's about building relationships first then business will follow naturally!

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!
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.

Member Testimonials
Wow, a year has almost passed by since I first started using IBOtoolbox for my online business. I've been using various platforms, some of them are paid, for my business but none of them has even come close to IBOtoolbox. With its truly awesome features and tools and the recent additions of two platforms, IBOTube and IBOGig, IBOtoolbox has really stood above the crowd. I've been actively participating in the platform every single day without fail and it has become an important part of my life. The best thing I've ever experienced is the steady increase in my business since using IBOtoolbox. If there's only one platform I really need for my business, it's IBOtoolbox! Period. Thank you so much IBO.

Banners, Graphics, and More...
I am sure you have heard the saying "a picture is worth a 1000 words" right? That being said, visual marketing can be very powerful! Did you know that approximately 80% of our learning occurs visually and even more importantly, we only remember 10% of what we hear, 20% of what we read and about 80% of what we see.

Visual marketing is all about sharing your message and marketing your services and products through visual media such as photos, images and video. Have you ever noticed that the brands that you know, like and trust usually have very good visual marketing strategies? They present information by using visual images that evoke emotion, capture attention, and call us to action. This is why using banners and other graphics in your marketing efforts can be very powerful!

Make sure your banners and images look professional. Do not use an image that needs to be stretched or looks distorted because it is the wrong size. Limit your use of too many different fonts, this makes it look like words were cut and pasted onto the banner. Also refrain from using an image that has a watermark visible on it identifying it as being stolen from a site where it should have been purchased. IBOtoolbox is our community and we need to take care of it. We are all independent business owner professionals and the image that I want to convey to others of our community is that we are all professionals, after all first impressions are important! Before you post a banner put yourself in the viewers/customers eyes - would you click on that banner and moreover, would you join under someone that posts a banner like that? Let's band together and take care of our community and just say NO to ugly banners!

End of Summer Banner Sale: 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!
