How To Welcome New Members to IBOtoolbox - Training
As more new members join IBO, it is extremely important to make them feel welcome! This will not only continue to strengthen IBOtoolbox, but also be more appealing to non-members looking in. Remember that 96 percent of the traffic that IBO receives is non-member traffic so it is important to use proper etiquette and remain professional at all times. Here are a few ways that we all can welcome new members as well as continue to strengthen our community:

* Welcome new members as they arrive on the platform, send them a request to associate and help them if they need assistance. When you welcome them from their "Just Joined IBOtoolbox" wall post, IBO automatically sends out an email notification to that new member alerting them that you have just welcomed them and a link to your IBOsocial profile page so they can learn more about you.

* Engage in IBOspirit by sharing other member posts or PRs through your various social networks. To do this, click on the IBOsocial link under their post or then click on the social network button at the top right of the screen where you want to share. Members that participate in IBOspirit see even greater results with IBOtoolbox!

* Don't spam other members by sending them your opportunity. By setting up your profile properly, this information is visible for them to see. If you really want to help them, send them a message welcoming them to IBOtoolbox. This should be filled with tips on how to navigate the platform, where they can get help or assistance and information about the IBOtoolbox Training Webinars.

Banners, Graphics, and More...
Creating a banner graphic can be a little more challenging than putting some words and images together. You have about 5 seconds to grab attention and above all, make sure it gets clicked before "digital distraction" kicks in. Designing an effective banner takes creativity and experience. Here are my top 3 traits of an effective banner graphic:

1. Know your audience! This will help you to determine the right text, graphics and color scheme to use.

2. Image Type - when selecting images, it is best to use a "PNG" image. This format was specifically designed for the web. This image format saves color information more efficiently and also supports a transparent background enabling you to do a lot more with the image such as shadowing, outlining and other effects. Using PNG images can make your banner graphic "POP" drawing more attention!

3. Make your call to action stand out! Be as direct and clear as possible making it simple for them to know what it is that you want them to do. Example: if you want them to visit your website, have a button on your banner that says "Click Here". mbers are saying about their experience with Bizopbanners!
