If you are on the StomperNet mailing list (you can sign up by filling out the form on this page you have no doubt already received news and links to more great free videos for the re-launch of the program.
As an affiliate for StomperNet I received a neat little PDF that explains what has been going on behind the scenes at the company. If you don’t remember, Brad Fallon and Andy Jenkins released StomperNet about six months ago after conducting an extensive launch process that included releasing lots of great free videos about search engine and website optimization.
The program sold out and they grossed over ten million in sales, but even if you didn’t join the free stuff was very helpful, which you can check it out right now at the free public version of StomperNet.
StomperNet was by far the largest Internet marketing product launch ever completed, however what made that launch a little different was what happened after.
Normally you don’t hear much about what is going on behind the scenes and I often get the feeling many of the big product launches are meant to be one-hit-wonders – a huge lead-up process to sell a package, make millions and then walk away. The StomperNet team didn’t do that, instead they used the launch to form a business and based on what I learnt from the PDF, they have done a great job creating one of the largest companies focused on search engine marketing.
Here’s what StomperNet is today:
- They now have a dedicated office, here’s a picture:
- They have 20 full time staff members.
- There is a huge forum and they actually pay 30 people to be moderators.
- They hired 8 full time faculty members, including big names like Ed Dale, Dan Thies and Dave Taylor. I’m not entirely sure what these people do but I assume it is create content in the form of video and audio training materials and perhaps help out in forums and present at events.
- No longer do they focus just on SEO and conversion, they have 300 hours of training videos on Shopping Carts, Traffic, Link Building, Conversion, Software, Blogs (very curious about this one!), Video, eBay, Sales Copywriting, Analytics, Usability, Test and Measurement, Pay Per Click and AdWords.
- Two StomperNet events have been run in Atlanta (600 people) and Orlando (800) with DVDs of the events sent out afterwards and followup teleseminars conducted. I was invited to go to the one in Orlando, but I was hopping on a plane to Australia from Canada when it was on.
- Plus they have a great looking web portal, have sent out a huge number of home study course DVDs, offer all kinds of multimedia resources, a regular newsletter and have a dedicated customer support team.
Suffice it to say, it appears that StomperNet is the most polished and well supported e-business membership program in existence today.
The only gripe I have, and the main reason I don’t join myself, is that I’m not in a position to study all the materials at the moment.
If you are just getting started or are in a position in your business to devote some time to education from the best of the best when it comes to e-business, StomperNet appears to be the top option. It’s hard to find anything that comes close to this level of information.
Impressive Social Proof
What really impressed me was one statistic – StomperNet currently has over 1000 members still paying $797 to stay in the program. That’s a huge retention rate and a consistent $797,000+ per month in recurring revenue, which is the main reason why Brad and Andy can invest so much into making StomperNet the amazing program that it is.
With that sort of cashflow you can invest in market leading features and information for your members and bring on the best to work with you, as they have done.
Does StomperNet actually work?
The other point worth mentioning is the results some of the current students of StomperNet are getting. I won’t go into detail here because the StomperNet team have released case study videos that review the results of some of the most successful members. You can watch them here:

StomperNet For Beginners
The StomperNet team have done some research and concluded that many of their members signed up as complete beginners and are looking at StomperNet as the means to launch their very first successful Internet business. To help these people they have created a new SIMPLE system, which they outline below:
Simple Instructional Methodology for People to Learn EBusiness
Stomper SIMPLE is a Step-by-Step program designed to get new members from Zero to Sixty as FAST as possible. During the first 30 days of their Membership, they will be on the receiving end of DAILY Instruction â€“ exactly WHAT they should be doing to get their On-Line business off the Ground.
This isnâ€™t just a marketing tool. The StomperNet Faculty has been working on this since late December. Itâ€™s REAL courseware that was created using a patentable eBusiness design process.
I have no idea how good it is, but Ed Dale is the guy behind it so if his credentials are anything to go buy it sounds promising.
StomperNet is considered an advanced search marketing course so the idea with this introductory system is to get everyone caught up and able to implement the advanced techniques. If you already have an Internet business I would look at StomperNet as all the information you need on e-marketing, all in one place – it’s not focused on beginners, but they realize the need to help beginners get started.
Doors Open Tomorrow
I must say it’s very easy for me to recommend this product to you. Normally I feel somewhat apprehensive recommending a product that I haven’t thoroughly tested, but with the names behind StomperNet, the amount of information available and the success stories on display, plus the level of research and testing going into every facet of Internet marketing info they produce, I feel confident if any of what StomperNet represents appeals, you will find the program very satisfying.
