Stomper 999 is a strange launch, at least by modern standards in the Internet Marketing Niche.
- Squeeze page for a couple of weeks
- A few rumours
- A few leaks of info after a seminar
- A few leaks on information after an affiliate conference
- The shopping cart opened on launch day and THEN they are going to drive home the message with tons more free content
For me Brad’s new “Mafia Offer” is a nobrainer but lets look at some of what I heard
The new tools package
- Full version Market Samurai
WYSIWYG Taguchi testing (Software as a Service / Hosted – up to 100,000 views free)10/12/2009 I have removed StomperStorm from the list as it seems to have been delayed indefinately.
- Shopping cart (some additonal fees apply)
- Twitter Storm – custom version of People Browser
- SEO Qast – I think this is a desktop video/article syndication tool
Full $97/month versionof Traffic Geyser (Update: I have been told that whilst this was the information initially given to affiliates, the exact configuration of the accounts won’t be exactly the same as the $97 Traffic Geyser subscription – We will need to wait until it is officially unveiled
- Article Syndication network of 17000 sites
- SMS/Text IM Twitter Email system
- PDX system with 800 number webconferencing etc (some additional fees can apply)
- Review System – not exactly sure, but a way to get reviews on Google local, with cards being sent to clients to fill out, pop in the mail and the details are added to local
Plus as far as I know all the current Stompernet training is also available which is really worth thousands of dollars.
There are a few upsells and additional fees on some of the items, but it is the promised Mafia offer, that no one in the industry can come close to matching.
Before I mention exactly what I have as a bonus, here is a little testimonial from one of my avid readers
You’re better at spotting issues (and proposing solutions) than anyone I know — so please consider yourself to have an open line to me on any issues you see or have. I’m sure we’ll have a ton as we start rolling things out. Just give me a chance to fix it before you blast us on your blog! :-)
I haven’t found any major issues that haven’t been fixed with what I was playing around with, the Taguchi testing “Stomper Storm” package, and this was a more general comment about what I cover on my blog than specific to new Stompernet products. Brad has been reading my blog for years… by email.
Who Is Andy Beard?
I am a real guy (not a fake pseudonym) living in rural Poland – so rural in fact that when we moved into my new house we didn’t have a telephone connected for internet access for 4 months, even though the local exchange box was at the bottom of our 7200m2 garden.
That was taken just over 2 years ago, the house is pretty much finished now, other than landscaping, the pool and the 3rd bathroom.
Somehow I can count many of the top online gurus as direct contacts… even though I have never created floods of sales for them during product launches, and I have never released my own product in the internet marketing niche.
Somehow I have also gained the respect of a large number of people in the SEO community (there is rarely a cross-over), and here are some of the accollades I have picked up for my SEO articles (often based on topics Stompernet teaches)
Whilst these rankings tend to fluctuate a fair amount, I am almost always highly placed on almost every “Top Blog” listing related to online marketing.
I could also write about how I helped grow a games company in Poland from 5 employees to 100+, publishing one of the first CD-ROMs on the Polish market, or the family offline apparel business that has been trading for over 20 years.
My biggest achievement has to be every day I spend with my 2 year old adopted son, and my biggest failing is probably knowing that in a year he will probably speak Polish better than me, and English better than his mother.
Show Us The Deal Andy!
For a while I have been thinking of the perfect way to monetize this blog, and the credibility and relationships I have built up.
The obvious solution for me was:-
- Create a value trojan – an insanely cheap $7/month membership for a few thousand people
- Have a single upsell – $1000/month for 20 people as a limited form of consultation/mastermind – maybe 4hrs maximum per month, prepaid, use it or lose it.
The specialization? Ripping things apart, fixing things, proposing solutions
I haven’t ruled this out as a long-term monetization plan, it is a huge long-term time investment, though it would give me the funding I need for my startup if I was bootstrapping (it is a big project to bootstrap)
The Better Plan
Whilst the value trojan would help lots of people, I wouldn’t be able to give enough help to the people who need it, and a consultant to the “gurus” would be solving problems of “gurus”, helping the rich get richer.
My long-term projects could certainly benefit from lots of “normal” testimonials
So here is what I am going to do even though it will be as close to a J.O.B. I have been in the last 7 years
This Offer Is Limited To 100 People
That is actually the hard line – it is not workable beyond that – whilst there are some digital components to this offer, it can’t scale beyond 100 people, and the financial reward is pretty much what I could easily earn just working as an SEO consultant.
Stompernet includes so much existing training, the chances of you having time to consume any additional standard “bonus fare” is remote, so I hope you don’t go looking for the biggest $$$ sign bonuses of things you will never read.
My bonus is specific to the product
- 1hr/month for 3 months of adhoc “Emergency Issue Consultation” & “Problem Solving” orchestrated through Huddle or Basecamp – I will actually set up a new project for each bonus purchaser and you will be able to call on me to help solve problems, test products etc. – it will be limited to what I can confidently advise you on, and if I don’t know, I don’t know and will tell you.
- Some additional adhoc web conferences for smaller groups when there is some additional insight to share
- Whilst I don’t want to make a huge bullet point about it, I also have a few private WordPress plugins that you will gain access to on an ongoing basis from a private area on this blog, that will include StomperStorm Taguchi integration just to speed things up even more, and some new SEO plugins (I have a nofollow evaporating PageRank solution for WordPress already to go)
I honestly don’t know how to put a value on this bonus, as it will really depend on the individual.
I don’t do consulting – if I did my hourly rate would have to be in the region of $100 – $200, but then I would also have significant expenses, travel time to meet clients etc.
Even a few years ago I could charge $250 just for a blog post about a company, and many willingly paid that sum, not for links but for the value of the feedback. I always looked on it as undervaluing my own time, a token gesture for the 5+ hours I often spent on writing an article.
But writing articles isn’t efficient use of my time – raw evaluations can be provided in private, and in some way provided more efficiently, with screen capture tools etc.
The value one company has received from my help could easily be looked on as $50,000+ for every hour I spent.
Stompernet is available at various levels and price points – in my own mind it would be a little insulting to offer some kind of scaled table here stating how much you have to spend to receive a specific bonus.
The aim of my bonus is to give you someone you can call on when you need help who can brainstorm with you to achieve a solution quickly. I can make almost any topic less confusing whether you are a programmer trying to understand marketing or SEO, or a business guy trying to establish an online business and can’t speak any geek.
It is in my best interests for you to remain a successful Stompernet memebr, to ensure you never leave, and to in someway magnify the Stompernet “You Are Not Alone”.
Magpies – All That Glitters Does Not Shine
There will be some huge $$$ figure bonuses for Stompernet by “all the regular gurus” – if they interest you, great – I wish you every success trying to debug their software, consume their content and battling their support systems.
I Am Not Doing This To Get Rich
In fact in many ways I am heavily discounting my own time to get valuable feedback from people who are serious about their online business.
Think of it as one step above an “Ask Campaign” or polling my readers.
I am going to leverage the feedback, testimonials and maybe even some of the content into other projects that will be more financially rewarding.
I am allocating the majority of any affiliate commissions to development of tools to help you with your marketing, and you will gain access for free or as near to cost as is possible.
Even if only 20 people take up my offer, I expect to spend at least 40 hrs per month working with people who take up this offer and on things inside Stompernet (forums etc)
This is the link to use:-
If you have any questions about this offer, here is my contact page
My Skype details are there as always, I am very accessible if you have any questions
Oh, and via this Stompernet offer I will even have a US #800 phone number soon.
Ask Andy About Stompernet Bonus
For a limited time I have also set up a number of chat widgets so you can ask me a question directly here on my bonus page
100% Conversion Rate
Everyone who has contacted me regarding purchasing Stompernet has either purchased through my link, or decided not to purchase Stompernet at all, but wants to somehow hire me or join any membership site I create in the future.
If you have any reservations, I urge you to contact me – I can answer all your questions honestly, and give you a taste of some of the support you will be receiving.
Claiming Your Bonus
After you sign up, drop me a note via my contact form just in case I can’t get your details from the affiliate interface. It is not unknown for Infusionsoft to have problems with order notifications, and I can’t automate bonus delivery.
I won’t be counting time until things settle down for the launch, so the bonus support will last all the way through to the end of the Christmas holidays.
There won’t be a huge delay in getting things set up, though I am human and I occasionally go to sleep.
