Finding the Right Mentor

in Mentor

If you are new to the internet marketing scene, and trying to figure out how to earn an income on your own by working from home, there is a good chance that you will feel lost if you do not have somebody to guide you through the process. In other words, you will need a mentor. A mentor or a sponsor is like a guide or a Sherpa that will help you navigate the harsh terrain of building your own Internet business. A sponsor knows how to get you where you want to be, because they have been there before. But choosing a mentor can be a very difficult thing to do. When you try to find a sponsor, you will find that there are more of them out there than you could possibly dream of. This is because the field of Internet marketing is so lucrative that there is a great deal of people trying to make it big as an expert in the field.

So how do you go about finding a suitable mentor to guide you and help you build up your business? There are two types of mentor to choose from. You can go with a paid mentor, or you can look for a free mentor. The advantage of paying a mentor is that the sponsor can devote a great deal more time to you. If you were getting paid to sponsor somebody, you would be more willing to give him or her your full attention. Finding a free sponsor can sometimes be the more trustworthy option, however, as a free sponsor has no reason to tell you anything unless they feel helpful to begin with.

Before spending any money on a mentor, you want to ensure that they know what they are talking about. Word of mouth is one of the best choices. Joining forums on internet marketing and asking around to see who is the best paid sponsor will allow you to get unbiased opinions regarding who knows what they are talking about. You should also do whatever you can to figure out how much attention you will get from the mentor. How often can they communicate with you, and in what medium? How easy will it be for you to ask questions and get them answered? If your sponsor is too busy for you, it's probably not worth paying for. Make sure that they suit your needs.

Alternatively, if you are looking for free advice, there are quite a few options. You can join a newsletter in order to get periodic updates on the subject of Internet marketing. You can join forums on the subject and get in touch with other people in the field. After spending some time there, you will be able to determine who knows what they are talking about, and how is just faking it.
