Advertise for free
If you are in business you need to get that business in front of a lot of people, a great way to do that is through advertising. Advertising can get spendy so why not choose one way to advertise for free and get your business in front of more eyeballs?
The site where you can advertise for free
When I first stumbled upon this site I thought it was a great place to network and I did not realize the amazing tool I had in my hands to advertise for free. As I got a bit more involved I was very impressed with the power of this platform. This business platform is called IBOtoolbox.
IBOtoolbox is full of great features all aimed at helping you build your network and your business. IBOtoolbox is a social network where you can create great relationships with other business owners, a place for media sharing where you can share your videos, a great SEO friendly blogging platform, and a way to advertise your business by placing text or banner ads.
IBOtoolbox gets between 140,000 and 150,000 target visits a day so you are putting your business in front of a lot of interested people.
Here are some screenshots of the site and how you can take advantage of each of them to advertise for free.
When you log on to IBOToolbox the first thing you see is the wall. This is where people interact and get social. It is similar to the Facebook wall or a Twitter stream only this is a social network for independent business owners.
The wall is the great way to share helpful and valuable information. When you blog within the system all your blog post are sent directly to the wall where other IBOToolbox members can comment and share your post. This is one of the great short term benefits of IBOToolbox, in a very short time you can get lots of views and shares on your wall posts and blogs.
Videos you post within IBOToolbox get posted immediately to the wall for people to view and comment. The great thing about posting videos on the site is people are brought back to your social profile to see the video. This way not only do people see your video, they learn more about you and your business.
The second way to advertise for free is by placing advertisements. There are several types of advertising you can do. The first is text ads like you see to the right. They look similar to Google PPC ads.
You place ads for free by getting credits for various things you do on IBOToolbox and then converting those credits to advertising impressions. You get credits by posting blogs, commenting on blogs, logging in to the site once a day, reading the newsletter, attending the Webinars or referring people to the system.
If you use the system regularly it is easy to earn credits to be converted to impressions so you can advertise for free. Using the system on a regular basis also helps build your brand recognition and it is a great way to build relationships with other people who are in business.
Another type of ad on the site is banner ads. Banner ads can be placed by converting your credits to impressions. Banners can either be placed at the top of the site for everyone to see or on your own profile page.
I think this is a great site to place ads on because it is such a large volume of targeted traffic. I find it is a great place to place my ads to test them to see what kind of click through rates I get on them. I can test and tweak here and then take my advertising to more places.
Here is a video I made walking you through advertising on the site.
