The Top Ten Ways Mentors Can Help

Internet marketing can definitely be more than one has bargained for! Have you found yourself spending countless hours searching, researching, and/or perhaps investigating, surfing, downloading, or joining affiliate programs, and promoting .... Yet, have made little or no online profit? Has it become a tedious and thankless task? Are you disenchanted?

The internet is an information highway that has probably taken you on an endless journey uphill and downhill and around the bend. Throwing curves this way and that. Have you been hoodwinked and/or simply sidetracked while taking detour after detour only to find you've gone in circles -- and ended up where you were yesterday, last week, last month or maybe even last year?

And if that isn't enough, do you find that you are no "techie?" Don't know how to build a website? Or how to create and upload a links page? Or upload your website using FTP? Don't know how to create a download link for your product, or create your thank you page on your site or how to use a redirect url? You say you don't even know HTML code? Unsure of how to create graphics or place pop-ups or scripts on your site... Don't know the difference between one website host or the other -- or if you should use a free web host or not? And the list goes on, right?

If you can relate to any of this I highly recommend that you set yourself up with a mentor. Someone who can turn your marketing efforts into dollars and sense. And that is the ultimate goal if you are trying to earn online profit, right?

A mentor can be someone that you depend on to help make your day start with that enthusiasm you somehow lost! Someone who will be there offering you an alternative marketing strategy while providing new hope for your continued progress.

10 Ways Mentors Help:

Organization -- A mentor can help you set up and organize a plan of action. Sometimes we get what I refer to as "information overload". We get snowed under all of the information we are trying to process. Your mentor can help you sort through this and help you get organized by implementing a plan of action for your daily activity.

Time Management -- Your mentor can help you with time management by having you set aside time for daily lessons and implementation. Lessons you'll be looking forward to completing because they will put money in your pockets!

Answer Questions -- Your mentor can give answers to pressing questions and provide additional information to help your bottom line.

Offers New Concepts -- A mentor can point you in new directions and open up new horizons and avenues for profit -- offering new and improved concepts that you may have never heard of or simply never tried.

Offer Motivation -- Procrastination is something that we all suffer from at some point in time. Or you may simply be frustrated and ready to give up. Your mentor will motivate you to implement and work your program.

Provide Product Reviews -- You receive product reviews in essence from your mentor because the program(s) and tactics and/or software recommended have been time-tested and hopefully used and reviewed by your mentor.

Create Newsletter or Ezine -- Any mentor (worth their salt) will instruct and help you in creating your very own newsletter or ezine. This is a great list-building technique and I cannot fathom a mentor who would not instruct in this area.

Provide Discounts -- You will find that because your mentor has established an online presence often they will have business rapport with other website owners who will agree to offer their products to the mentors members at deep discounts.

Provide Free Reports -- Some mentors will provide you with free reports that you can use to give to others as free gifts or you can simply use them for your information only. Some will offer free downloads to valuable information packed e-books as well.

Provide Free Software -- There are a lot of valuable time saving software programs available and often your mentor will introduce you to these time savers usually in the form of links. Sometimes free downloads.

If you decide that a mentor is worth your consideration take some time to check them out. If you can find a mentor that is raking in the big bucks and earning a monthly residual income, a "so-called" guru of sorts that would certainly be your best bet. However, I have found some of them to be too pricey and out of financial range for many including myself.

I have two mentors. I have my main mentor who is actually "a guru" and I follow his lead and advice to the letter as best I can. Sometimes I find myself a bit ahead of him already implementing ideas he suggests. However, he has lots of great ideas and he earns tons of residual online income so I continue to follow his lead.

I have another mentor who I simply follow because I like his style and he guides me in the right way and in a direction that is conducive to my needs without ever touting himself as a mentor. He is what I refer to as an "affiliate guru." He is my mentor and he doesn't know it! Maybe one day I'll tell him! He's the one that moves me ahead of my number one mentor sometimes.

So you see, you don't have to pay for a mentor at all. That is entirely up to you. If you find someone whom you feel is both creative and innovative and you like their style just read their information and implement their traffic generating techniques. Just make sure they make money online. With a little research you will be able to tell!

Your mentor could possibly make you a very happy person. I love both my mentors. And as odd as it may seem they make me very happy!
