Brand yourself as a marketer, not a program
Personal branding yourself online is nothing more or less than putting yourself first, instead of a program when you are promoting online.
People are more willing to follow a person that informs them than a standard “sign up here” advertisement page.
The question should not be wich program they have to follow, but why they have to follow it with you! What do you have to offer to compare all the standard promotion advertisements?
The answer is quite simple, Human interaction and additional information. You are the only truly unique thing on the internet. If people are starting to follow you, it nearly doesn’t matter anymore which program you are promoting.
The following four internet marketers’ social programs are my most favorite to share my programs and blog postings. All are long term existing sites and have free membership options.
You will be able to set up a full personal profile, make social connections, create a posting and gather all your programs in one place.
The only thing you will need to promote in the future is your own social page.
I like IBO TOOLBOX to call “The Facebook for marketers”,
You can create a very extensive public profile page at IBOToolbox with your videos, press releases (blog postings), social connections and your own Adsense ads!
The profile and press releases have their own permalinks and can be promoted anywhere
A short overview of the features of IBOToolbox
Social wall, A facebook alike timeline of your actions
IBO Associates, Marketers where you can connect with and mail (friends)
Press releases (PR releases in the account menu)
Little blog postings that can have your opportunity links and are connected to your personal profile.
Press releases will be shared on the front social wall, to your connections, and can be used as stand-alone postings for your promotions. you will get internal advertising credits for publishing press releases.
Free Advertising Credits.
IBOToolbox has internal text and banner ads. You can achieve free advertising credits on IBOToolbox by taking several actions like posting PR releases, reading the weekly mail, entering the twice a day promo codes.
Branding Top bar.
The most extended personal branding top bar I have found so far.
When you use the IBOURL link shortener on your promotion page, IBOtoolbox can put several topbars above that promotion page, with your photo, social links, press releases, and your IBOtoolbox signup link.
As you can see, the IBOURL is a very powerful tool to make standard advertisements stand out and will promote multiple links in a very simple way for using one advertisement credit only.
IBOToolsbox works on a mobile app as well and is fully responsive on devices.
MLM Gateway is a combination of a marketing-minded people connection site and a personal branding system.
You can build a personal profile where you can at your Business Opportunities and social connections.
A very powerful tool is business announcements. This is an option to write simple blog postings with links to your opportunities. Business announcements will provide you connection credits, are connected to your profile, will attract people and have a permalink to share in other places.
MLM Gateway is fully responsive on all mobile devices
EASYHITS4U is well known as a traffic exchanger but has great unrevealed branding options as well.
Next, to the traffic exchange, you can use Easyhits4U to
- Connect with other members

Tip: On the photo thumbnail of an Easyhits4U member, you can see whether it’s upgraded or not, upgraded members are members that are willing to pay for things (buyers)
The free HTML splash page builder and rotator are some useful tools as well.
Easyhits4U has massive daily traffic and a very active member base.
Free and all paying members will have
