The IM Rebels
-the NEW school of internet marketing

The IM Rebels are a group of three like-minded individuals who were drawn together while each following separate paths in the IM space.

And even though the tagline mentions “new school,” in actual fact their philosophy is about as old school as it gets. But more on that in a bit…

As individuals, each Rebel brings something different to the table and has a unique background. As a united front, The Rebels’ goal is to change the way internet marketing is both taught and perceived.In short, they want to make YOU a success.

Rather than hiding behind smoke and mirrors, The Rebels are about 100% transparency in all of their trainings and interactions. What you see is what you get, and when something comes out with The IM Rebels stamp of approval, you can be assured that it lives up to every single claim on the tin.

Why Rebels?

In the exciting and sometimes frustrating world of IM, there is one constant: hype. Too much of it, The Rebels believe. Excitement is great but too much hype can mislead prospective consumers, even lead them to make poor decisions. And that has led to many people having a perception of this industry that ranges from caution to considering it a complete sham.

So The Rebels aim to buck that trend. Go completely against the grain, if you will. Forego the hype completely and exchange it for 100% honesty, complete transparency, and a genuine desire to help those looking for guidance.

And that, in business terms, is about as “old school” a philosophy as it gets. Because these virtues seem to have gotten muddied up beyond recognition within this industry throughout recent years, however, it seems a value-system born of sheer modernity.

It’s rare, to say the very least.

So in this spirit of transparency and new-school excitement, let us say hello to each member of this dynamic, accomplished, and industry redefining team…

The IM Rebels Are:

Shane Farrell is the “been there, done that” guy in the IM space. From SEO to Amazon and plenty in between, he eventually settled on list building and never looked back. Also a successful solo ad vendor and partner in one of the largest SMS companies back in the day, he’s since turned to sharing his personal techniques for list building by releasing quality products that have been smash hits in the market. Also a successful coach, Shane’s reputation for integrity is second to none.

Mark Tandan, “The Goofball”, is the oldest member of The Rebels but still thinks he’s a kid. He started in affiliate marketing and moved quickly into product creation, again teaching only methods proven to work. With numerous award-winning products in affiliate and email marketing, he continues to practice what he preaches. He ghost writes emails and sales copy for some very big names online, and has worked extensively in affiliate recruitment for other highly successful marketers.

Brian Gray, ‘The Traveler”, was born in the US, grew up in Africa and now lives in Cambodia. To running out of gas crossing the Sahara or having his father kidnapped by actual rebels in Africa, he has some stories and adventures he could tell you! He uses his skills from 13 years in the education sector to now dive deep into analytics, traffic and testing and uses IM to continue to travel and explore. He has had clients like the EU, UN, World Vision, Vespa, Hennessy and Hyundai (just to name a few). He is our resident paid traffic and social media traffic expert.

What Brought The Rebels Together?

It wasn’t really a plan, it just sort of happened. One day someone stumbled upon an amazing product and decided to promote it. Which led to a relationship. This was rinsed and repeated a few times until the three individuals realized they had a LOT in common.

Namely, a general disgust with the overall IM situation. False promises, the whole “fake it till you make it” mindset, and all the other shenanigans.

As individuals, each Rebel had quietly been releasing quality products that have all delivered as promised, while trying to maintain a high code of ethics in every dealing.

When they got to know each other and realized they all shared the same ideals, the concept of The IM Rebels was born. And this is the result.

Can The Rebels Help You?

Well, that depends. If you wish to pursue a LEGITIMATE way of earning online, following proven methods that WILL require some work, then yes. If you want to be able to look yourself in the mirror and proudly tell your friends and family what it is you do, then most definitely yes.

Because as successful as each Rebel is individually, as a team, they’re pretty much unstoppable. And they’ll stop at nothing until each and every student of theirs becomes a success as well.

“After enough time in the trenches, I’m a bit tired of the whole ‘I’ll scratch your back if you scratch mine’ mentality. So my goal is to show you how to scratch YOUR OWN back and be self reliant in your success and results moving forward. Best part of this? You get to be your OWN person… and follow your own path to the riches that will follow.”Mark Tandan

“I believe in teaching what you do! Product creation alone is not a business plan. I believe the most actionable trainings come from people sharing their own experiences and is what I aim to continue to do. This way I am providing maximum value while allowing you, the customer, to have an extremely high success rate following along with what I do everyday!”Shane Farrell

“With my background in digital marketing, I realize the importance of having an overall strategy, and I put great emphasis on setting realistic, actionable goals that work to accomplish a master plan. If you’re in IM for a quick, easy buck, then all you are going to do is waste your time and money chasing fantasies. The reality is, it takes dedication and hard work to be successful, but for those who are willing to learn, we can teach you what it takes to set up a long-term profitable business.” Brian Gray

We are the IM Rebels. And we couldn’t be more thrilled, honored, and excited to have you here joining us today. All the very best from ourselves and our families to you and yours. Now let’s craft some truly legendary experiences!

Thanks a million.
