Greetings & Thanks for Visiting!

mike corso - seo - cool site I'm a web viking and digital marketing ninja (SEO, SEM, email, social media, landing page optimization, lead generation, etc. ) responsible for Cool Site of the Day, the Internet's oldest directory (launched in 1994).  I'm also Google Adwords Qualified and am one of only .5% with direct access to Google corporate. One of my goals with Cool Site of the Day is to shine a light on all the cool websites since the beginning of cyber time.

Cool Site of the Day has featured a unique site every day since August of 1994...nearly 9,000 sites!

As for my approach to Internet marketing and SEM, the following quote says it all:

“That which is measured improves. That which is measured and reported improves exponentially.” (Pearson's Law found on Mark Joyner's Simpleology)

More background

In 1993, I was the first person to promote music on the Internet for the major record labels (via bulletin boards and primitive websites!). After 5 years working for the music industry, I bought Cool Site of the Day (1998).
I have been quoted in several online and offline publications including The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal and am usually available for interviews and speaking engagements.

Sometimes I find time to offer consulting services...

If you do decide to contact me for a consultation, know that we will FOCUS on keyword research and competitor analysis INTENSELY (believe me, it will save you hours/days/months/years of heartbreak). THEN, you will know if your idea has a shot; if not, I will likely redirect you towards a more lucrative path.

2 BIG things for YOU today


Folks,

If you you’ve been paying attention lately, you’ve noticed that I keep adding links to my ‘Great Resources’ section to the right. Well, today I added a link that is sure to change the lives of many of you.

But first a story (’cause I’m in that kind of mood)

Something urgent and critical here.

My partner Greg and I have been locked in the office for two weeks brainstorming the final details of the Cool Site of the Day VIP launch. (It’s live and limited to only 25 people — more later.)

But here’s what’s critical right now: All week long, Greg has been glued to the information the StomperNet guys are giving away online. There’s literally hours of amazing, useful, super-inside SEO techniques on improving your website’s organic ranking.

They’re giving it away. Be clear on that. No obligation, no trickery, no nonsense.

We’re both just stunned at the value we’re taking away just from watching these videos. They’re incredibly well-done; Andy Jenkins, who has an honest-to-God EMMY for editing (Hollywood’s highest honor), has made watching these super-informative information videos a joy to absorb.

Here’s what’s up: We just learned that all of these videos are being pulled down sometime Thursday… it’s the official end of their launch (yeah, the timing of their launch and the Cool Site of the Day VIP launch could’ve been planned better but, hey, my loss not yours).

Anyway, here’s some background worth reading:

In 2000, Andy Jenkins, a guy who had already gotten an Emmy for film editing at a pretty early age, decided to start an online business or two. They were successful businesses and made Andy some pretty good scratch.

But it turns out Andy really had a thing about TEACHING, so he developed an ebook about how to set up a Yahoo Store that was extremely successful.

Along comes Brad Fallon, an attorney by training, who had learned some Search Engine Optimization techniques while getting his wife set up selling wedding favors online (don’t laugh – their *little* company – Aspen Brands, will do about $21 million this year).

Brad reads Andy’s Yahoo Store Profits ebook and thinks “wow, this guy knows some stuff, I should give him a call.”

The rest is history.

Sort of.

You see, when Brad and Andy got together, they created a best-selling set of CDs called “Stomping the Search Engines”. And the followers of their teachings started calling themselves “Stompers”, using these cutting-edge techniques to create multi-million dollar sites for themselves.

After Andy and Brad had successfully conducted a couple of high-priced Apprentice programs they came to an inescapable conclusion: they were “on to something.”

Thus, StomperNet was born.

In the beginning, though, it was just Brad, Andy, a box of DVDs they put together called the Business Brain Transplant, and a promise: to create the best possible environment for people with online businesses to learn, grow, and prosper.

That was just over eighteen months ago.

And even though they’ve added faculty, staff, technology, content, programs, coaching, office hours, tools, etc. etc. etc., it all still boils down to one question: with all this, are StomperNet members succeeding?

All I can say is watch this video for some amazing testimonials (to see it, you may have to give up your e-mail address on the right of that screen but, trust me, it’s worth it).

It’s powerful stuff.

BTW, the last time StomperNet was openened to new memberships, they sold out 325 in 8 hours.

These videos are from real MEMBERS of StomperNet, and they’re going to tell you EXACTLY what they accomplished, and HOW they got these results. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this.

Video 1 – Kristie is going to show you how she went from making $1,000 a month to $10,000 a month – in 45 days. She made $75,000 last holiday season, too. She’s learned this stuff so well she’s now an expert e-Biz consultant in her home town. And she started this 18 months ago.

Video 2 – Cassia is going to show you how she started with making only $5,000 a month – and she had been struggling at her business for YEARS. She and her husband Steve got the “Home Study Course” videos when they signed up for StomperNet, and the next month, they DOUBLED. 3 Months later, they hit $27,000 a month, and have been holding there – even while Cassia had a baby and they moved to their dream home in Colorado.

Video 3 – Chris is going to show you how he was virtually killing himself – getting up at 4:45am – 7 days a week, to be a personal trainer at a gym. When Chris joined StomperNet Andy Jenkins couldn’t figure out whether he was just a guru groupie, or dead on serious.

Turns out, he was NOT JOKING about his business. Today, he’s got 8 OTHER TRAINERS working for him, ranks all over the FIRST PAGE of Google for his Money Keywords, and just got back from a 6 WEEK (not day) vacation – and when he came back, his business was BIGGER than when he left. Chris has been a Stomper just about 1 year now.

These case studies don’t pull any punches either. Listen for each Stomper’s FRANK and Candid discussion of the StomperNet monthly tuition (sure, it’s not for everyone and that’s why I offer the Cool Site of the Day VIP program as a, perhaps, less overwhelming alternative).

Sorry for the late notice but it’s Thursday and already the rush has begun for the very LIMITED number of slots they will make available. And once they’re full, they’re closing (as sure as I can only take 25 clients in the Cool Site of the Day VIP program).

Watch those case-studies – they’re all successful e-Business owners who took a chance, stuck it out, and WON.

They have things to show you.

Finally, tomorrow, StomperNet will make a STUN
NING announcement.

If you’ve ever wanted some personal attention for your business, you need to look for tomorrow’s announcement. I can’t tell you EXACTLY what it is, but… it has improved every StomperNet member’s business by 68%.

To your success!

Mike
