The Key to Our Success
Since our launch way back in 1996 (remember Mosaic and Netscape?) we have adhered to a key formula that explains our phenomenal success, both as a company and, more importantly, in helping literally thousands of ordinary people to start and run their own successful internet-based businesses:
That formula consists of two components critical to our ongoing success – world-class expertise in the subject matter (i.e. internet marketing itself) and world-class expertise in passing on that expertise to our students.
We are proud of the fact that since our founding we have been, and continue to be, associated with some of the brightest minds, most inspired marketers, and most effective coaches and teaches in the industry.
These experts have turned what we do into a science — making IMC the most comprehensive source of expert up-to-the-minute Internet marketing education, tools, and support.
Indeed, we make it a policy that everyone who is involved in teaching others MUST have already proven themselves by having run, and continuing to run their own successful online business. Not only that, but at least one of their businesses must be in a field completely unrelated to 'teaching you how to make money'.
That way you can be assured that our coaches and mentors do actually know what they are talking about. Furthermore, it also means that whatever your current level of business knowledge or experience, we have something we can offer you – be it holding your hand step by step to set up your very first money-making website, right up to advanced strategies for multi-million dollar businesses.
All our products and services are tailor-made to increase success rates for the small- and home-based-business owners — and decrease the time it takes to achieve those results.
So, without further ado, lets introduce you to our current faculty:
Dr. Noel Swanson
Originally trained as a medical doctor, Noel first started his online marketing career in 2004. His first site, related to his training, was an immediate success. From there he went on to develop a number of other highly profitable 6- and 7-figure businesses which he still runs alongside his role as president of IMC
Noel currently lives the internet lifestyle on board his 42ft sailing catamaran, and was last seen cruising among the Caribbean islands.
Dr. Basil Peters
Starting as an engineer, Basil first startup grew to 350 people. After selling that company Basil has invested in, and nurtured dozens of other companies. Along the way he discovered that the most fun was to be had in selling companies, resulting in his current world-class expertise in helping business owners with their exit strategies.
Chuck Anderson left his job as an underpaid factory worker in 1995 to pursue a career in marketing & sales. For the past 11 years, Chuck has been earning a substantial income online while working from home along side is wife and 3 children. He has also had the good fortune of traveling the world as a public speaker helping others get their online businesses started.
After a successful career in the automotive sector, Darren and his wife LeeAnne left corporate culture in 2005 to travel the world. After two years of traveling through Alaska, Fiji, Australia and New Zealand they decided they wanted a bit more of a challenge. Entering the online world, Darren quickly started up several highly successful internet businesses that continue to grow and thrive.
But it hasn't stopped him traveling – currently he is touring the US in his motor home and plans to tour Europe in the near future.
