Per his post today, Perry Belcher: Turning the Page (see update below), Belcher has quit Internet marketing training. There were a variety of reasons why this happened. Some of them are listed in Belcher’s post. It appears that he has substantially shut down most sites and his Twitter account.

I have no doubt that Perry Belcher will continue marketing online behind-the-scenes. Today’s announcement is essentially an abdication of guru status for purposes of public speaking, big launches in his own name, etc. If he stays within the boundaries of the law and adds value in his future business dealings, he will undoubtedly succeed over the long term. Personally, I hope that he does.
Remember that the purpose of bringing the Perry Belcher arrest and guilty plea to light was to serve as a warning to others. Whether you think Perry Belcher is a saint or a sinner, he took certain actions that put him in the government cross-hairs as a target. If you take the same actions, you’re risking the same negative consequences (or worse).
Update: Belcher is back in business after relocating to Austin, Texas from Tennessee, and partnering up with Ryan Deiss.[optin-cat id=7577]
