Work From Home? How to Get The Best Results With IBOtoolbox Banner Advertising.

Maybe our title should read "Get Rid Of Your IBOtoolbox Banner Ads Quickly or Slowly For a More Targeted Response?"

By now those of you who apply my tips and tutorials, will already be IBOtoolbox members. If you are, you will have first set up your profile with the links you want advertised and then gone on to find what I call "Heavy Hitter" associates by sending out invites.

Once you find these heavy hitters, comment on their posts and do a few PRs as my new friend Brian suggested in his comment on my last blog post.

The heavy hitters are listed in the left column of the IBO "Dashboard" and you can also tell who they are by visiting their profile pages. Just visit their profiles, scroll down and see how many associates they have. I like to choose those with over 1,000 mainly but I do also accept invites from those with less who are requesting to connect with me. This is just plain courtesy and good spirit.

On to Getting the Most for Your Banner Ads!

First you need to know how to get banner ad credits. You actually get some every time you login, post a press release, read their newsletter to retrieve credit codes, or you can purchase them. You can do your own homework on how IBO advertising works by simply logging in and clicking on the video tutorial "Advertising on IBOtoolbox Overview" located by scrolling down the dashboard on the right hand side.

Now once you've built up some credits, you can place your banner ads. Minimum of 100 credits must be used which gives you 500 impressions in IBOtoolbox. You then will have a choice on how you want to run your banner ads as follows:

Banner Placement:

  • IBOtoolbox Top (** 5 impressions per view)
  • MY IBOsocial Profile
  • OTHERS IBOsocial profile
  • (HUB)

I always choose "My IBOsocial profile". The reason for this being that I want more targeted visitors who are already interested in learning more about me.

Then you will be given a choice on how fast you want your banner ads displayed:

  • Fast
  • Default
  • Slow
  • Very Slow

I always chose "Slow" so my credits last longer and I will have a chance to build up more for free.

Last week I was averaging about an 10.7% CTR (ClickThru Rate) for the 3 sites I was advertising which can be viewed in the image below. My calculations are as follows;

  • 3 sites divided by a total of 28% CTR.
  • 3/.28 = 10.7%

I'm not a math genious so if you find fault with my calculations, please do leave a comment so I can learn something myself. :)

So now you know how I do it and once put into practice, you should start seeing the same results yourself.

Was this post helpful? Maybe it wasn't and you have something you'd like to share. There are two ways of doing this on this blog.

1) Leave your comment and link below.

2) Send me a blog post on the same topic or any other for that matter with a brief description of yourself and I'll post it in my "Featured Guest Posts" link above. Just send your post to email address: with subject line "Featured post request". Once approved, I'll email you back with a date yowill be added and you can send your contacts here to view it as well.

All my best to you and yours,

Maurice, I love your step by step approach to helping others. This kind of stuff is lacking where people are just starting out and simply promoting without learning. Thanks for your efforts@

Brian Walker said...

By the way, another 15% increase in visitors today from my comments yeaterday and by adding associates. Yep, this is working. Thanks again.

Garry Stretch said...

Maurice I have been thinking about where the best place to put banners was and your positioning makes perfect sense as usual.
Thanks as always

Maurice Bernier said...

No problem Garry. You're very welcome. Thank You for stopping in!

Maybe you can come back and give us an update sometime on how it's working for you. Maybe add some results of your own or send me a profile article with some links so I can add you to the "Guest Post" link at the top. I'm kind of surprised nobody seems to be sending those.

What I'm actually trying to do is get all my TPOOI4L friends featured before anyone else but, I guess I'll take them as they come whether it's TPOOI4L or whoever besides Harold that takes advantage of the offer I've made.

Anyway Garry, I hope you got settled into your new house okay and that everything is going well for you!

Catch you on the rebound my friend & thanks again for stopping by.
