Review on IBO Toolbox traffic and branding

Until recently, I was not very enthusiastic about IBO Toolbox. I saw it as a place where everybody posted links to all kinds of money miracle programs, and I'm not interested in that. My posts on the wall disappeared fast. Also, I don't like to tweet everything I see, something called the IBO Spirit.

2 reasons have helped me change my mind.

1) I spoke with Terri Pattio, she's a member at IBO, she agrees with everything I say, yet she's very active there, because she gets awesome traffic. She explained why.

2) A new feature was added recently: we can now comment on blogs. I like that, because commenting is a very important way for me to brand myself.

Unfortunately, the number of characters is limited in the comments, but at least, I can write more than "good site" or "thanks for sharing".

One thing I find happens very often at IBO, is that a good number of members send unsolicited links in private messages. In my case, they do it only once, because I tell them right up front that I don't like it. Politely, of course. Of course, it happens on every social network that some people think it's a good to send a link after accepting the contact request. My good friend Chuck Bartok taught me something about that. When it happens to him, he starts a conversation with the person, trying to educate him or her on the proper way to do things.

Back to topic. Here's a new video I did to show IBO's features:

Appreciate the IBOtoolbox video, Phillipe. The IBO Spirit doesn't mean Tweeting posts you don't approve of. There are a lot of programs promoted that I consider illegal pyramid schemes, which I ignore without attacking them because there are plenty of legal MLM programs to Like and share on other social media like Twitter, Facebook and so on.

Udo, too much information can be as bad as not enough.

Roosevelt, are there any of those legal MLM programs promoted at IBO? I don't believe in free to join programs, and many people don't want to pay money to join. I think I've seen people promote SBC. I guess I will have a better idea by being more active there.

Any truly legal MLM opportunity should be free to join, Phillipe. There are plenty of good product and service based Biz-Ops promoted on IBOtoolbox. You just have to separate "the wheat from the chaff"! LOL!

A strange comment, Roosevelt. Take Skinny Body Care, Amway, Visalus, Multi-Pure, none of those are free to join. They do have tangible products. The ones you talk about are probably about virtual products. Can you give specific examples?

And your point is, Udo? We are on a business social network, we want to make money with opportunities, not become customers of every MLM out there.

Correct, Roosevelt said "Any truly legal MLM opportunity should be free to join" as a business network MLMs are part of the business world. A business you are not a customer of is not something a person will be very good at promoting.. service, real product virtual, makes no difference how can a person recommend anything unless they are a customer.. this is good business no?

if everything is for free , where would the money come from to be able to pay to someone. At least someone must pay for something in order to pay someone :)
