How to Select a Mentor and
How A Mentor Helps You Succeed In Internet Marketing
In the world of Internet Marketing, we are often individually holed up in our homes or offices, mining the Internet for opportunities and creating our empires. There are many ways you can become successful on the Internet, but most involve the hard way, costly way, long way or mentor way.
The hard way is to do it yourself. The costly way is to do it yourself. The long way is to do it yourself. Then, there is the mentor way. You may have heard of many success stories in the industry and how they made it, but no one will tell you that it was hard, costly and long. It is these people who we need to be grateful for, and to ask for help. No matter whom we meet, from guru to newbie, they thank some mentor for getting them where they are, or started.
There is a big barrier that prevents many people from achieving their ultimate Internet dreams, but it is a big fat lie. You need to approach internet marketing keeping 4 things in mind:
1. Knowing where you are – and WHY
2. Knowing where you are going – and WHY
3. Knowing the best way to get there
4. Getting there quickly and easily
Having a mentor lets you model a successful person. Why do you think shows such as “The Apprentice” are so enticing? It isn’t just the media exposure, but for the winner it is a chance to work closely with a billionaire such as Donald Trump. Guess what that would do for your expectations and mindset? You would be influenced by persons who have mastered their art.
For anyone considering getting a mentor, even though the cost may seem high, if you choose based on a mentor analysis, you will get someone who you can depend on to get you to the top, faster, easier, and in the long run, cheaper.
By carefully analyzing your mentor you can learn whether you can get access via teleseminar or email, get access to their support staff and other important information. You should focus on the time access to the mentor and pick one mentor to start and stay focused. Know how long have they been around and what are their Success Stories, Personality, Price.
A mentor can only help in the ratio you are willing to make things happen. Mentors aren’t a magic pill designed to paint your world and make it all better for you. They are the role models and the people who have created a system that is working. It has been tested and proven to work for others, and can also work for you.
You have a lot on your plate with your goals, implementing all of the steps, creating a product, meeting people, getting your mentor, selling, marketing, growing, and juggling it, all at the same time. At some point you will need to build a team around you, and that will include your mentors, JV partners, friends, family, subcontracts and eventually staff, to handle all of the stuff you don’t want to. As a mentor myself, I know there are tons of choices out there, and I wish you the best with your selection and team.
