Well it’s the week of sales both online and offline all over America.
No doubt if you are like me your email inbox has been flooded with all kinds of offers. Some are too good to pass up, many are too good to be true, most are somewhere in between.
I’m a big fan of using pressure in marketing and I find reviewing some of these offers very educational, but…
Don’t get caught up in the hype. Remember scarcity marketing tactics are designed to compel you to act now, to BUY NOW using an emotional appeal that you will lose out if you don’t.
If you see a good discount on something you already want for you and/or your business - BUY IT.
Just don’t let yourself get pressured into buying anything primarily because of a temporary sale. If it doesn’t make sense long term…
It doesn’t make sense to buy it.
152 weeks ago I started recording/reviewing the (now) 1,063 Featured Members of the Day here on IBO Toolbox.
If you aspire to a “Featured Member” - “FMOTD” for short - be active in ALL the areas on IBO Toolbox that you earn “stars” for.
The exact algorithm that determines WHO the featured member of the day is and IBO management “secret”, But speaking from experience - it’s consistent activity that leads to being featured.
I can tell you from experience that the more active you are, consistently, for a period of time the more likely you will be the next FMOTD..
Be consistent EVERY DAY for a period of time, and you too can be - might be - likely will be - a future “FMOTD” (Featured Member of the Day)
The Featured Member designation is NOT based on spending money or winning popularity contests.
So why should you care who’s featured?
Because the featured members are some of the best prospects for any business that you’ll find on IBO.
They are “active” and “active” people are the kind of prospect any business can never have too many of.
Go to my list of posts and look for the featured members’ posts if you’ve missed some past weeks…
“Click through” the individual’s name for any day and you can see their “statistics”...
Almost every week some that have been IBO members for years and some that are very new.

7 IBO members helping promote each other simply by promoting the IBO platform. That’s the way the IBO platform was designed. That’s the way it works...
If you haven’t been featured yet I look forward to seeing you here. If you have already been featured, I look forward to seeing you featured again.
