If you’re a member of Stompernet, the world’s largest membership site for Internet marketers, and you’re attending the Stompernet LIVE 7 event March 5-8 in Atlanta—or if you’re attending as a member’s guest—let me know. I’d love to meet you, say hi and maybe even buy you coffee.
I’ve cut back drastically on travel because I hate airport hassles, but this event is well worth it. It’s a chance to:
Be a human sponge for three days.
I soaked up so much valuable information last April at the Stompernet Live 5 event that I couldn’t figure out how I’d ever do it all. (Hint: don’t even try to do it all. Choose what’s best for you and leave the rest.) The Stompernet faculty members and other speakers are among the most successful and creative Internet marketers in the business.
Meet joint venture partners
In April, I finally met and had dinner with Mike Stewart who I’ve known for several years. We ended up collaborating on a teleseminar that taught Publicity Hounds how to use video at a website, blog or in a video sales letter, and the best camera and video-ediitng software to use. You can listen to the 67-minute recording here.
I also met Lynn Terry. I’ve been recommending her dirt-cheap 13-page report Easy Fast Cash Strategies. The report teaches you how to market a special report that you’ve written for a niche audience, even if you don’t have a website, shopping cart, or email addresses of people who have given you permission to market to them.
I met Publicity Hound Leili McKinley, a business coach who I invited to be my guest expert during a teleseminar on Outsourcing Secrets: How to Get the Best Quality, Price & Teamwork from Freelancers.
Hear a website critique
Brad Fallon, who founded Stompernet with Andy Jenkins, critiqued my website. All members get a website critique and you can attend the critique sessions even if you don’t want a faculty member to review your site.
Some of the most valuable relationships aren’t made in the meeting room, but in the hallways, at the coffee table, and during the breaks. Go out of your way to invite interesting people you’ve met to lunch or dinner. That’s where a lot of the deals are made.
Find out what’s new
You’ll learn what’s new in social networking, blogging, podcasting and search engine optimization.
One of the speakers will be business coach and Stompernet member Paul Lemberg. He’s the creator of Forumla Five, the package of videos, checklists and coaching that teaches you how to follow five simple formulas to double your business this year. Stompernet asked me to review the product, and I’ve been devouring the videos the last several weeks. Be sure to check out the five free videos about Formula Five as well as the webinar. But make sure you have a pen and paper close at hand, or sit at another computer and take notes. You’ll come away with dozens of tips and ideas you can start applying to your business today, regardless of what you sell.
Hope to see you in March in Atlanta! If you’re going, let me know. I’m bringing Chris Buffaloe, my assistant, and she’d love to meet you too.
