There is a new StomperNet in town, same name, but a very different game.  The first was a company devoted to teaching and community.  The new one is not.

"StomperNew" is really a software tools wholesaler with an attached speaker’s bureau. Some of the tools themselves look really good and it is my intention to use a couple of them extensively.  Others, not so much, but the line-up when taken as a whole should have really wide appeal. And speaking of wide appeal, the speaker’s platform (currently 21 in number) has everything from the world’s youngest Internet Marketer to the founder of MarketingSherpa. You’re bound to be able to find something you like in there … occasionally.

Frankly, StomperNew is an untested model in my experience, so we’ll see what Brad can do with it. I hope it works for him. I have more than a few friends that depend on it working.

But what about me? StomperNew certainly is not going to evolve in the direction that convinced me to move to Atlanta Georgia 2 years ago, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be involved at some level — just not to the level I was.

I’ll speak at the live events if asked to because I really enjoy the people, but the routine development of teaching content within the new structure is at an end. The content that is there now will no doubt remain, but anything new will have to specifically contract and such has not yet been suggested. Instead, I’m back to teaching on my own … sort of.

Back in January of 2007, Dan Thies and I announced our retirement from coaching to go focus on StomperNet.  Since then we have both retired from our retirement.  Or maybe we’re still retired and are just moving into a different old folks home.  One with a way better meal plan.  🙂 Anyway, maybe we’re just arrogant, but something we’ve figured out these last three years is that what we do really well we can do a lot better with a bunch less help!  We also figured out we sorta like each other and complement each other’s style … or lack thereof, we are guys after all … hence, The SEO BrainTrust.

Our "highest and best use" is teaching web business owners how to get more out of their existing businesses. That’s what we were both doing independently before StomperNet, it was what we were originally retained to do for Stompers in November of 2006, and it is what we are continuing to do today in our own structured training program. Emphasis on structured.

We are now just a few days away from being live and open for business so if you are reading this and have not opted-in, uh, why not? 🙂 Do so now and you can take a look at some of our videos and join the discussion of what we plan on offering.
