What Is On Your IBO Social Profile Page?

        In appreciation of the people who make comments on my IBO press releases, I often return the favor by first visiting their IBO Social page, and then going to one of their press releases to comment on it. Because I visit so many IBO social profile pages, I get to see some that are quite impressive. But others are only mildly interesting. And other times, I regret to say, there are pages that are downright dismal. Some of them are devastatingly barren except for the default text that was put there for them when they first signed up to IBOToolbox.

     Our IBO Social pages are seen not only by fellow members of IBO Toolbox, but also by tons of people outside IBO from all over the world.  In fact the vast majority of people who see the Social profile pages here are from those who are not members of IBO.

   You have to think of your IBO Social page as your store front. When people visit it, what will their impression be of it and you? Will they conclude that based on the appearance of your page that you are a competent business person? Or will they think you are somebody who simply doesn't know what you are doing? Will they want to consider doing business with you, or will they simply move on and totally forget about you?

    IBO stands for Independent Business Owner. What business are you in? How do you make that known on your IBO Social profile page?

    Do you know who Kris Karafotas is? She is the one who makes the IBO training videos, and she also hosts the live webinars on Wednesday evenings. If anyone knows how to make a good looking and effective IBO profile page, she does. Here is a screen shot of hers.


     Now maybe at the moment you have no idea of how to make a page like that yourself, but you could learn. You could take the free course on IBO over on Kris' training site:

    You can even start improving your IBO Front Page right now by going to the Site Menu on your IBO home page and clicking on the Edit Profile link.

    On the page that opens you can scroll down to Step 5 (optional) - IBOsocial Front Page


     Below those two rows of icons is the area where you can add and edit content for your IBO Social Front page. Wherever you have your curser, or highlight in a portion of the editing area, is where pressing the icon buttons will have effect.

   You might start by changing the font size of the highlighted text (perhaps all of it) to something more readable. I mostly use size 14, with larger sized fonts and bolding of text to add emphasis for certain words or phrases. Next you can put certain words or phrases into italics, or change them to whatever color you want them to be.

    Be sure to add graphics or videos using the icon buttons in the edit menu which open windows for you to add the URL for them, including the YouTube URL for a video.

     If you have an image on your computer that you want to use, you can upload it to a site site such as so you will have a URL that you can use in your IBO social page or in the press releases you write and post on IBO.

   If you are telling about a business you are in, you can probably get the URLs for its banner images from the affiilate tool page of that business.

   When you want to make text or an image clickable so it will take people to a new website, highlight it, click the Chain Icon in the menu, then add the URL you want, and select New Window if you want the site to open in a new window (making it easier for people to return to your IBO page).

   The edit menu for your IBO Social page content also has icon buttons for making numbered or unnumbered lists which are good to use when listing the features of a product or service that you are writing about. There are other buttons that let you indent or take out indent for whatever section of your text that you have highlighted before using those buttons

    At the bottom left corner of your IBOsocial Front page edit window are the Design and HTML tabs. If you go to HTML tab, you can add additional HTML codes to your page. For example, you could add  ?rel=0&autoplay=1  at the end of the URL of a Youtube video to make it auto play when visitors arrive at your page. (If you do that, be sure the video is very near the top of your Social page so people won't have to scroll down to actually see the video that is playing).

    There are other even fancier things you could do if you take the time to learn a little more about using HTML code. You can do so for free at by going to

   One thing that training can show you is how to resize the images the you use in your IBO profile page and press releases. just add  width="500" height="300" after the end quote of the image URL and before the closing > for the image HTML code (you can experiiment to find whatever actual numbers you want to use to make the image fit and look good on your page).

   Using the width and hight HTML code to change the width and height of your images is especially helpful when the origingal image is so big that goes beyond the margin of your page.

   The free training I got at W3Schools also enabled me to know how to add the code for Iframes on my IBO Social page and press releases. What does that allow? It lets you insert an actual live web page within an IBO page. But be sure to learn how to do it properly, so you will be able to adjust how much of your inserted web page will be displayed. It might not look very good if either too little or too much of the inserted page is showing.

    After you get your IBO Social page looking so much better than it is right now, that doesn't mean you ought to settle for leaving it exactly that way forever. From time to time I edit my page to either make a minor tweek, or a major make over. I promote a variety of of web marketing services, and so at different times I like to feature one particular service, and at other times I like to feature something else.

   Want to know what my own IBO Social Profile page looks like right now? Then click the banner below. I also invite you to come again from time to time to see how much I may update it.
