Featured Members IBO week ending 8-20-2016

I had a birthday this last week. That’s always a blessing in my book. Another year is a gift from God and I hope to get another 57 of them (that’ll make me 114 in 2073).


As a marketing person for 36 years now, I’m fascinated by the “event” of the birthday.


Personally, I am committed to sending real cards (using SendOutCards) to all of my clients. Cost to me is about $1.50 per card and 10 seconds of my life. Right now I’m sending around 200 of them. I get great response from the people I send them to.


So how many cards did I get this week?


One from my sons. 2 from insurance companies I work with. A total of 3…


On Facebook I have 3,221 friends. I got 499 birthday wishes there…


On LinkedIn I have 7,427 connection. I got 86 birthday wishes on that platform…


I have almost 8,000 people in my email contact list. I got exactly zero emails wishing me “happy birthday” but..


I did get 6 texts wishing me “happy birthday”


I got 3 phone calls. One from a sister, 2 from friends…


I tell you all that in the hopes that you get some insight that you can leverage in your business.


Most people get much less recognition than I do. If you want to “stand out” try picking up the phone or sending a “real card”....


Those are the people I’ll remember. I appreciate all 600 of them but I’ll remember about 15 of them.


Just something to think about.

People motivated and active enough to be the “Featured Member of the Day” on IBO are the kind of people I want to cultivate relationships with.


I should be more attentive to sending them a card, no doubt...


But, at one point in time, I lost track of the previous week’s  “featured members” .


That’s when I found out that there wasn’t a source for the data of WHO had been featured each day so…


I created this very simple one.


Since January 18, 2014 I’ve been doing this weekly post of the members that were “featured” each day of the week.  


The “featured members of the day” -  “FMOTD”’s (for short) have been very active on IBO for some period of time in all of the areas that earn IBO “stars”.


That “activity” is the key to being “featured”.


This post is about recognizing those folks.


If you find value I encourage you to check back each & every  week to see who was “featured” each day.


If you miss a week (or more) I”ve got the list. Just check my list of posts.


“Click through” the individual’s name for each day and you can see their “statistics” - how many followers, the number of posts and press releases they done, etcetera...


For this last week, here is the review of the IBO featured members of the day.


Sunday 8-14-2016

Tom Riach of Faro, Portugal joined IBO 11-5-201. Tom has been the featured member of the day 3 times now.


Monday 8-15-2016

Sharon Naraine of Clermont, Florida, USA joined IBO 2-22-2012. Sharon had been the FMOTD 8 times so far.

Wednesday 8-17-2016

Thursday 8-18-2016

Friday 8-19-2016

Saturday 8-20-2016

Steven Ackerman of Buffalo, Minnesota, USA joined IBO 6-18-2011. 6 times (so far) Steven has been featured.


Tom - Sharon - Melinda - Tommy - Kris - Gregory & Steven


Last week's featured members were all from the USA


This week 5 are from the USA - 1 from Portugal and 1 from Sweden


All 7 are helping each other by promoting each other because that’s the way IBO works.


You can be a future featured member too. Just be active in the areas that have earn you stars and be persistent.
