4 Simple Rules to keep from getting suspended

Rule #1 - Spamming with messages
Sending copy/paste system messages to everyone your associated with is considered spamming. IBOtoolbox does not allow this process for a simple reason. It DOES NOTHING to build your business. It does NOTHING in IBOtoolbox, does nothing in Facebook, it does nothing anywhere.

However, sending relationship building messages to your associates is important. Why? Unlike spamming, a new friend, partner, alliance, or follower will help you build your business! Word of mouth advertising is the cheapest and most effective type of marketing. Use IBOtoolbox properly and you will be rewarded by a solid group of supporters. Those supporters will watch your actions, see your strategies, and most possibly join your next venture. The most successful people on IBOtoolbox are those who have a good reputation for making everyone feel welcome, offering value, and following the basic rules of IBO.

Rule #2 - PR, Video, or Wall Comment Spamming
One of the most irritating things a member of IBOtoolbox can do to get their account suspended is Comment spam! This is the act of commenting on someone's PR, Video, or Wall Post with devious intentions. If you are commenting on a PR, Video, or Wall Post, please post a relevant comment.

Do NOT talk about your opportunity, product, or website. You are suppose to be helping your fellow member by posting a relevant, positive, and encouraging comment for other members, non-members, and potential partners and customers to read. Posting comments on IBOtoolbox is big business for the people using the system correctly. Why is it big business? Because Internet Marketing is all about that reputation or referral. IBO members help each other build consumer confidence and reputation be receiving good PR, Video, and Wall Post Comments.

Remember IBOtoolbox family of sites receive around 300,000 unique visitors each day. That is A LOT of eyes on those comments you are posting!

Commenting Note: If you didn't read the PR or Watch the video, then please do not comment. Comments that read "great pr" or "nice post", might as well read, "I don't have anything valuable to add". Such comments are not going to do anything for the author, and definitely not doing you any good at all. So please, if your going to leave a comment, leave a good one! Also remember, if you have 5+ stars, you can earn credits for comments on PRs and Videos!

Rule #3 - Using, Selling, or promoting automation systems
Because IBOtoolbox is the largest business building social network, there is going to be people trying to make money riding our developers coattails and attempting to take advantage of our platform. IBOtoolbox is constantly slammed with DOS, auto account creaters, auto inviters, message senders, etc... We have systems in place that automatically suspend or delete accounts that are obtained using such software.

We have many member come to us after their accounts have been terminated asking to come back if they promise to stop using the automated systems. IBOtoolbox does NOT allow anyone to use, promote, or sell IBO automation software (Software that automates the use of IBOtoolbox).

If you have purchased this software, ask for your money back. The software is actually illegal as it is not conforming to the AUP of the site.

Rule #4 - Post Adult/Gambling/Illegal Material
Probably one of the fastest way to be removed from this platform is posting an Ad, PR, or profile image with nudity or adult content.  This is NO place in IBOtoolbox for scantily clad women, adult content, or provocative images.   Anywhere.

The same goes for gambling, online, casino marketing, or any sort of illegal activity.  This things do not have a home here @ IBOtoolbox and your account will be quickly suspended.



In Closing, IBOtoolbox works if everyone follows the simple rules.  If you see any of this activity, please let us know by sending Security a support ticket.  They have been known for giving crdits to those who help us keep our system clean!

The 4 best rules here, and common sense for most all. A nice group of people here from what I've seen over all these years. If you're new, please read the above twice and if you have any questions please ask Admin, Kris Karafotas or many of those here that are "old timers", hey now... I don't mean in age, I mean in experience on the IBO platform of course! ;-)Whitney Jacqueline

You know when someone didn't read your PR, is when they type, "Nice PR, thanks for sharing". If you don't want to read it, don't read it.Dominic Goss

Spamming of any kind is mostly untargeted and is often discarded because of this. But spamming in the comments is ignored and it's doubted that anyone would bother copying a URL that is spammed in the comments. And bots on whatever platform do not help you build relationships as the followers didn't discover you or your content themselves.Dominic Goss

Thank you for this post and keeping this a place not only for safety but to benefit us all. This is a must for everyone to read and adhere to.Sandra Pugh

Hello Admin,Thanks for sharing basic 3 rules to use IBOTOOLBOX....Its our responsibility to follow all the guidelines set for all members to use IBOTOOLBOX.Gangadhar Kulkarni

The most annoying thing to me is a private message spamming me. It has been said that traffic comes from outside of IBO toolbox. Members do not need to constantly spam with private message to check out your latest .... what ever you are promoting. As a full-time renovation and repair contractor, I am thankful that I provide enough value that I do not have to advertise. Almost 10 years of referral and repeat business. Try providing value first before you think about spamming your fellow IBO TB members. ps. hope this does not get me banned.David Hardy

If you use IBO properly everyone will see your posts and they can decide if they want more information from you, no need to spam anyone. Thank you Admin for posting and letting members know, appreciate that you have.Wanda K Robinson

much Needed Info. Responsibilty Is Most important When Posting Messages. Thanks For Sharing This. Esp. New Members Will Benefit More.vasanti vijay iyengar

Why shouldn’t we just follow the rules? Thanks IBOtoolbox Amin., for the post.Bobby Sims

IBOToolbox Admin thank you for keeping this form fair. I know this exchanges is great place to connect with others. I am happy to be able to express and learn too from all the other IBOers. Thanks again for a great format.Jim Redland

You email us with PRESS RELEASE NOTIFICATIONS...for the purpose of other people commenting on the PRs. The purpose is for other people to comment ...is that SPAMMING? Or are you just talking about spamming with IBO MAIL where they include a clickable promotional link?Rafael Cruz

Those are simple and common sense rules, that nobody should have problems following. In a community like this, it is best to follow the golden rule in dealing with fellow members. Thank you admin! :-)Herb Ratsch

What about managing one of your associates accounts (as a service) ? Is that prohibited behavior?Bill Bateman

One thing I have wondered, is if you message a lot of people but it's not for selling or joining an opp, is that considered spam to simply message a lot? Great PR, first one I have seen by admin...will there be more to come?Jaye Carden

I think it is human nature to try and find shortcuts, but it is clear that behavior will get one suspended.Tony Koker

Very timely and needed press release admin. I was really wondering why so much people were being suspended as some did not look like bots, but actual people. Thanks againGary Welsh

Thanks for the great tips on how not to get account suspended.James Stevens

Thank ou for sharing these three rules with usLonnie E. Shipe, M.A.

Team IBOT, I was alarmed at the rate of suspensions but was reluctant to inquire. Now that you have so ably laid out these three simple rules, it would be prudent for Associates to be reminded thereof. In appreciation :)Athena Gay

Hmm! let me see if I get this right. You don't want me to say "Great PR but go to my wonderful make you 100,000 before tomorrow link."LOL! good information and thank you for posting it. Especially about asking for a contact with someone and then sending your opportunity to them without asking when you know nothing about them.Bo Tipton
