An affiliate marketing mentor is someone with the knowledge and experience to help you have more success, faster. If you are in affiliate marketing, you need a good mentor.
For years, I have taught that choosing your mentor can have more impact on your success than even choosing the business you will build. A good mentor is that important.
Choose carefully. A good mentor can help you have more success several ways. He or she will share what works. Your mentor can also help you avoid wasting time and money on things that don’t work. It always bugs me how many affiliate marketers have wasted a small fortune spinning their wheels, unsuccessfully trying to find what really works.
I recently read an article on Entrepreneur titled 7 Reasons You Need a Mentor For Entrepreneurial Success. The article made it clear you are more likely to succeed with a mentor. In fact, many big-name success stories had good mentors. I can not over emphasize how important mentoring is.
3 key areas a good affiliate marketing mentor can help you
First, a good mentor will help you establish realistic expectations for your affiliate marketing business and set goals and strategies accordingly. Plus, he or she will hold you accountable.
I feel this is critical. As one of my early mentors, the great Zig Ziglar used to say, ”how can you hit a goal you do not have?” It is so frustrating to see how many new affiliate marketers have given up because of unrealistic expectations and goals.
Second, the right mentor will share a proven system you can follow to build your business. That way, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel, you do not have to experiment and struggle. All you do is copy what works.
This saves time and frustration, while leading you to success. Key areas where this expertise is really valuable include lead generation and list building, personal branding, and using systems for leverage.
And then lastly, a good mentor will lend motivation and encouragement. I invite those I mentor to reach out to me when they have had a really successful day…or a frustrating one. A good affiliate marketing mentor should enjoy celebrating your successes, as well as pick you up when you have struggled.
I hope this blog post helps you have more success in affiliate marketing. Almost all of us can benefit from a good mentor. It can have a huge impact your success.
