Internet Business Owner Tool Box (IBOToolBox) is a community of online business owners who work together to help grow their businesses. IBOToolBox is a social networking site that is solely dedicated to business owners who want to promote their business opportunity or other programs to…other business owners. Understand that one way to attract prospects, if you’re marketing a network marketing business, is to go after other network marketers…after all they bought into network marketing once, they are likely to buy into again.
IBOToolBox is an authority site which means pages created via the IBOToolbox platform rank very high with Google. Assuming you understand SEO and utilize a free keyword tool or Jaaxy, you are likely to achieve first page ranking.
You can join for free and receive access to everything to include webinars, ability to post press releases promoting your business while helping others, send messages to other business owners, and earn credits which can be used to post ads. You can utilize this platform to increase visibility and traffic to your blog or website without paying a penny. Utilizing the IBOToolbox, an online marketer does not need to rely on PPC (Pay-Per-Click) or other paid traffic programs. This is a 100% Free program. There is an option to purchase additional ad space for $19.95 per month, but it is not required.
- Free to Join
- Active community of thousands of members
- Everyone has access to the same material – no limitations are placed upon you
- Two weekly webinars, one on Wednesday and one on Saturday
- Friendly helpful members who have the same goals as you
- Authority site giving all content posted high ranking in Google
- Ability to earn “credits” as opposed to paying money for services and traffic
- Compose up to two daily press releases (not “real” press releases, but IBOToolBox press releases, which aid in your campaigns)
- A “SafeHaven” for online business owners and marketers.
- Not a training site. All members are assumed to know the basics of affiliate marketing and website design.
- It can be confusing when you first join. You have to search hard to figure out how to do something. The platform is not intuitive.
- There are online business owners of ALL kinds which means you will run into people marketing pyramid schemes and MLM-type schemes such as Herbalife. I personally believe the majority of MLMs are scams. So, watch out because there are scammers on IBOToolbox. Use your senses and keep your guard up.
WHO IT IS FOR?
As mentioned above, this is not a training site. This is for the person who already has an established online business and already knows the basics. For those just starting out and wanting more information about where to begin with online marketing, get started with my #1 recommendation. IBOToolBox is a program that can be utilized in addition to my #1 recommendation for affiliate training. Please note, unlike my other reviews I have written on this site, I recommend you use IBOToolBox as a supplement to Wealthy Affiliate.
There is training available on IBOToolBox to include webinars by Kris Karafotas, the IBOT Trainer. You can also send her a message easily and get a quick response. Angel Sharon, an IBOT member, has written a detailed tutorial on IBOT. There are also links to videos explaining how to do various tasks within the IBOT platform, such as how to create a press release and other similar tasks. There is training available, but you do have to hunt around for it and many things you will discover just by playing around with the system on your own.
There is support available for IBOT. You can go to IBOTHelpDesk and get assistance.
My personal opinion is that IBOToolBox is completely legitimate and I highly recommend it for anyone who wishes to network with other established online business entrepreneurs to exchange ideas and get additional traffic to their websites, because that is a huge priority for anyone building a successful internet business. My recommendation is to supplement a free membership with IBOT along with my #1 recommendation.
If you have any questions or comments for me, please leave them below and I will reply shortly. I would also especially love to hear from those who have first-hand experience with IBOT. Have a wonderful day!
