Who Are Build, Grow, Scale?
Build, Grow, Scale is an online brand centered around producing and selling eCommerce content.
It was created by two online entrepreneurs, Matthew Stafford (CMO) and Tanner Larson (CEO).
American based, they both have pursued a career within the eCommerce space, selling physical products online and developing their knowledge and expertise in the online marketing of such businesses.
This has all culminated in the development and growth of Build, Grow, Scale.
At time of writing, the brand is most notable for its two main programs: Ecom Insider and Amplify.
Both of which serve a different purpose.
Ecom Insider is all about providing training, resources, tools and coaching around the business model.
Amplify is all about teaching paid advertising and helping current marketers scale their operations.
The Ecommerce Business Blueprint has since been launched, which we will shortly be taking a look at below.
Outside of this, Tanner has also published a few books under the brand. You can even find them over at Amazon.
As you can imagine, the guys have taken to YouTube to market their business and their services.
They have acquired over 10.5k subscribers at time of writing, and produce content around eCommerce strategy, recommendations and suggestions.

The Ecommerce Business Blueprint aims to be a complete training program for beginners to build a successful eCommerce brand from scratch.
While Matthew Stafford and Tanner Larson appear to have a wealth of experience in the industry, whether or not this course is going to be for you is open to debate.
For me, the two areas that put me off where the price and the course length.
At $497, this is definitely not the cheapest course on the market. And, I’ve taken a look at quite a few over the years.
Then, there is the length.
The course is a combination of videos, worksheets and resources – with 100 in total.
If you run the math. 100/14 (14 modules), the average module has 7 pieces of content.
I’m not sure if the course is going to go into the depth required.
Besides, there are some big topics covered there.
So for me, I would be interested in other courses.
My recommendation is eCom Elites which comes in at a much more affordable $197. Plus, it has over 200 training videos alone.
These are just my thoughts. But I thought I would share.
