If you don’t think you need Online Marketing Mentorship then you’re only kidding yourself. Having a mentor is crucial no matter what type of business you’re running. You could own a landscaping business like I used to have, and you’d still need a mentor.
It doesn’t matter.
Without one you’ll only achieve mediocre results at best.
Here are a few things that having a mentor will do for your business…
1. It’ll reduce the amount of time you spend learning all this technical online marketing stuff. I mean seriously, wouldn’t it be nice to have someone sit down with you at your computer and tell you exactly what to do? Go to this website. Click over there. Now open that in a new browser, etc. I know I’ve spent countless hours just trying to get comfortable at setting up Word Press or even creating blog posts (not counting the actual time it took to write them). A mentor can tremendously reduce this learning curve for you.
2. A mentor will also save you a LOT of money. How so? You’re probably thinking “yeah, but it usually costs me an arm and a leg to hire an online marketing mentor.” I hear where you’re coming from, but when you INVEST in yourself and your business by finding some online mentorship, you will actually save money overall.
Imagine that you’re attempting to send some “paid with money” traffic to your sales funnel. And lets’ say you’ve investing in an online course that cost you $297. It was a good quality traffic course that taught you the concepts and the technical side of getting the traffic – let’s just say it’s YouTube Pay-per-view for example.
So, you go set up your ads, your budget, and get everything all set up. Now you start running the ads….this is where the fun starts… You get crappy results (typical in the beginning), but you don’t really know what to tweak first, so you pick the headline (like the course taught), and you keep running the ad and split testing.
All the while, you’re spending money to run these tests. It could cost you several hundred dollars in ad spend before you finally get a decent ad. But, if you had a mentor – someone experienced in YouTube Pay-Per-View, he could tell you how to tweak the ads, what kind of copywriting words to use, how to make the videos better, etc.
It would literally save you hundreds in ad spend (not to mention the time it took to do the testing), and a whole lot of anxiety! Is this ad gonna work? What if I can’t get it to convert? I’ll be out tons of time and money with nothing to show for it!!!
You starting to see why having a coach is a good idea?
3. Without a mentor, you just couldn’t do it. Let’s face it. Sometimes there is stuff you just wouldn’t be capable of doing or even think about doing (like building a sales funnel or trying mobile marketing for traffic) without someone to guide you. This is especially true in the internet marketing arena. There’s everything from merchant accounts, to websites to squeeze pages to copywriting….I could go on and on with this. Hopefully, by now you’re starting to see the need for mentorship in your online business. These are just 3 good reasons to have a coach, but there are many more.
I just wanna add one more thing…
If you take a look at EVERY online entrepreneur that is earning 6-figures I can tell you one thing they all have in common – They ALL have at least one strong mentor who has helped them achieve that level of online marketing success.
Reread that last thought. And then try to justify not having a mentor.
As far as mentoring goes, I’ve got a great resource for you. It’s a free online quiz that will reveal your true level of expertise in your online marketing business. It’s short. It’ll just take about 5 minutes to complete. But when you get the results you may be surprised to see how much (or how little) you got going on in your business.
