What is IBOToolbox – Learn How it Works

What is IBOToolbox

2022 Update – IBOtoolbox is no longer operating.

So, What is IBOtoolbox? 

I was introduced to IBOtoolbox.com by a trusted and very successful affiliate marketing college. I had also read other ‘What is IBOtoolbox’ type reviews and found that most people had some pretty good things to say about it.  so I signed in and have been using the site as an integral part of my online marketing strategy.

What is IBOtoolbox Used For? 

What is IBOToolbox used for and what does it mean. The IBO bit stands for Independent Business Owner.

It is a state of the art marketing platform – more than just a social media site ( like facebook or twitter ) and offers the user an outlet to advertise and market their business; create and develop their branding.

IBOToolbox is free to access.

You would probably expect to pay a lot for the kind of exposure that it offers, but you don’t need to buy anything to use the services.


IBOToolbox offers the opportunity to earn points that you can convert into advertising credit. It’s a simple system – you get points by logging in and reading newsletters and by commenting on articles and posts. You create your own advertising and use the points to activate it online.

IBOToolbox does offer the credit points for sale as well. It is not expensive and they have regular special offers. The basic purchase of around $10 will last you a long time. So it isn’t a burden if you are operating on a shoestring budget ( like I do).

They don’t have any enrolment fees or charges, pay plans and levels. So the same options and features are available to all members. But it is pretty much the cheapest advertising I have seen on the internet – in fact, it doesn’t have to cost you anything.

Hundreds of Thousands of Users Every Day

As a very successful and professional site, IBOToolbox is used by 100’s of thousands of people every day around the world.

It is designed as a marketing tool for your business and is probably the most targeted marketing system available. People who are attracted to the site are in search of ways to make money on the internet.

IBOToolbox has been set up with the internet marketer the primary focus. All the features have been made available to help you market your business.

It is also a social site where you can create associations with other business owners. They also are able to assist you with tips and information.

However, it is a marketing site, so generally, they also want to sell you something. But there is never any pressure and you can find some excellent money making ideas being marketed.

Articles posted on IBOToolbox can also rank on search engines. People are attracted to the site through keyword search engines requests and the extensive social media exposure that the site gets.

In addition to the IBOToolbox platform, there are also other programs that you can access for monthly charges, such as IBOTube and IBOExchange.

They are separate to IBOToolbox in that you need to set up new accounts to use these platforms.  There are also free training webinars that can help you to learn the best options and features within IBOToobox and associated programs.

Earn from Affiliate Links

In addition, IBOToolbox provides an affiliate program to its members. You can earn credit through advertising and attracting new members. So, it can also become one of your affiliate programs.

IBOToolbox has now introduced an affiliate money payment system, so you can now earn cash from your referrals. So, when you subscribe to the CLUB IBO network, you have the opportunity to earn 20% commission on any purchases that your referrals make.

Therefore, this makes being a member of the CLUB IBO a potentially very profitable proposition.  

Below is an extract from the IBOToolbox website: 

CLUBIBO benefits:

  1. Hi James,

    This is really great information! I have never heard of IBO Toolbox and it’s something that I would like to look into!

    I just want to understand it better…

    Is it a platform where you post articles that you write just as you would post them on say, Google+ for example?

    Is it more suited to making money online niches or would it be useful for any niche / product you are promoting?

    Thanks very much for your help!

    1. Hi Anna, thanks for the questions. IBOtoolbox is a social platform for all sorts of business owners. You are able to post links to your articles ( similar to google+ ) but you can also write and post new original articles into IBOtoolbox ( they call then Press Releases). Your posts get comments from others and also get airtime on the IBOsocial and facebook. So your content gets ranked for your keywords and niche. IBOtoolbox is suited to all sorts of niches and businesses, products … its is very versatile and, from my experience, you do get significant traffic to your site – especially when you post new original content. You should definitely give it a go.

  2. Well, I was suspended for replying back to my ibo associates. Through my message board. I was reported to be spamming. i really don’t get it. i thought IBO a business site where you can share your business opportunities and idea’s with your associates. i had many associates to share with me without any complaints. i see now that
    i dont need to be sharing anything or giving out positive advise for free. and then get suspended for it. my opinion ibo is very strict. this came without warning too. but seriously i never thought i was spamming anyone.

    Thanks for taking the time to read.

    PS. My advise is to read ibo rules and regulations carefully,

    1. Hi Ronnie, thanks for your comments about IBO. Im sorry to hear that you had some issues with their policy. Some people are a little ‘thingy’ about others contacting them directly – which to me is a little counter productive, as the site is a networking site. So, yes , I can understand you are a bit miffed at getting suspended. Thanks for your advice – it is always worth reading the rules and regulations of all online activities – probably something that no-one actually does. Me included.

  3. Hi James,
    Great website! I am learning a lot from your reviews especially. Never heard of IBO before but I would go check it out. Just a question, do you advertise your site on their network or do you use their network to advertise your site on other platforms such as google or facebook?
    Always great to learn more!

  4. This is a nice post. My friend invited me to join the IBO toolbox. I do some checking if this site is not a scam or something so I led to your website. Your article clarified all my questions in mind. Thanks for this informative site.
