During my research to create a post about the sites IBOtoolbox and IBOsocial I came upon the acronym IBIS IBO so it caught my attention and interest.
I performed an “Incognito Search” because I want my search to be what someone would find on their first search for something without the prejudice of my prior search history interfering with the results.
What I found was the website ibis.ibo.org so I clicked on the link, much to my dismay here is what I saw:
IBIS – International Baccalaureate Information System
Due to essential maintenance work, IBIS is currently unavailable. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
En raison de travaux de maintenance essentiels, IBIS est actuellement indisponible. Nous vous prions de bien vouloir nous excuser pour les désagréments occasionnés.
Por motivos de mantenimiento, IBIS no está disponible actualmente. Disculpe las molestias que esto pueda ocasionar.
With the main site being unavailable I decided to look a little deeper and found their Facebook Page – The International Baccalaureate – I still haven't figured out what the O stands for in IBO except that maybe IB.Org was taken so they needed another URL and went with the IBO.Org and maybe the O stands for Organization. So the IBIS IBO stands for International Baccalaureate Information System International Baccalaureate Organization? Maybe so!
I also found a really coolsite called ibis.com which is for IBIS Hotels and they also have a Facebook Page, Google Plus G+ Page and YouTube Channel as well!
They have 3 levels of Hotels:
IBIS – Standard room
IBIS Style – All inclusive with exclusive benefits
IBIS Budget – Low cost & comfort
They seem to be a part of the Accor brand Hotels – Check out the cool YouTube video below!
OK, enough about that, let's get into what this post is really about!
IBOtoolbox / IBOsocial
What is IBOtoolbox & IBOsocial?
IBOtoolbox & IBOsocial are 2 separate sites within the same site, I know that sounds confusing and I'll try my best to explain it so that it makes more sense.
Below is a screenshot of the IBOtoolbox dashboard, it's where we share Press Releases as well as posts about our websites and/or opportunities which are all also indexed by Google as well as the other search engines like Yahoo & Bing just to name a couple more.
You most likely also noticed my Banner ad at the top of the IBOtoolbox dashboard in the screenshot and yes I did plan it that way. I made sure that my banner ad was at the top when I captured the photo on my LG android cell phone.
The reason that I bring that up is so that you can see that advertising is very much a part of the platform, what many don't realize is that there are over 300,000 visitors to IBO each day and 90% of them are nonmember traffic.
IBOtoolbox is for lack of a better explanation, our back office. Visitors can see our posts and even click on the ads and read our Press Releases but in order to comment and get involved with communication would need to join the site.
The screenshot above shows the dashboard at IBOtoolbox and you can also see the “Site Navigation” area at the top right side. That is the main area to navigate around the IBO toolbox dashboard.
There are options to be able to edit your profile page, create a Press Release, check your messages, view your IBO Associates (Friends) set up your banner and/or text ads, purchase advertising credits, (There are also many free ways to receive IBO advertising credits daily) there is an IBOURL tool for shortening URLs, you can check your leads, (Visitors to your IBOsocial profile page who send you a message and/or join IBOtoolbox) view the IBO Newsletter which comes out every Sunday afternoon, get your IBO referral links and/or banners, training, IBO help desk and even check your earnings as IBO now has an Affiliate program for those who refer Friends to IBO that purchase advertising credits. 50% is paid out for Club IBO Members and 20% is paid out to free/non club IBO members. (Club IBO is $19.95 per month and comes with a 7 day Free trial) Club IBO Members also receive 4,000 IBO advertising credits per week as well as double the advertising credits when making a purchase. Many other advantages to the Club IBO membership are included as well.
Club IBO Advantages:
Ad-Free IBOsocial Profile page
Double the credits purchased
IBO contributor badge to show that you are serious about your Business.
50% commissions on referrals advertising credits compared to only 20% for non Club IBO members.
Although not mandatory, I highly recommend becoming a Club IBO member and taking the Free 7 day tour to see what an amazing advertising platform that IBO is and how itb will elevate your business website traffic, referrals and revenue!
