Why would you want an Internet Marketing Mentor?
I’ve been working online in one capacity or another for about 5 years but it’s only in the past 2 that I really started to get serious about making money online and moving away from a traditional 9 – 5 job…but first:
Back to my review…in the past 2 years I’ve done fairly well as an Affiliate Marketer, mostly working with Amazon sites but I was also at the same time trying to develop my skills in other Internet Marketing areas.
I had a few successes but many more failures!
My problem was experience (lack of) and coming across problems that I couldn’t solve. In the past this has been as simple as a WordPress Plugin Problem through to issues with setting up an Email Marketing List!
Looking back it’s very obvious now. I needed help and I know there are some excellent forums out there (Warrior etc.) but I needed more than that. I needed someone who had done all this before and made a real success with Internet Marketing.
Luckily, I managed to find an Internet Marketing Mentor who really set me on the right path!
John Thornhill and the Partnership to Success Program
My wife, Steph, happened to show me an email which she had received from a guy called John Thornhill.
In this email, John Thornhill had put together 4 Videos which demonstrated his Partnership to Success Program.
In the first video, John Thornhill introduces the Partnership to Success Program and includes a testimonial from Richard Legg, a well established Internet Marketer. Richard goes on to explain that a good way to find out who is genuine online, is to have a search for Internet Marketers on the Warrior Forum. A quick search for John Thornhill gives you a lot of confidence in his ability to provide a first class Mentoring Service.
The video also tells you who exactly John Thornhill is, where he used to work and of course where he calls the ‘office’ now.
In this video John introduces 2 of the 3 Keys to Success and explains that if you follow his 3 Keys to Success, he can 100% Guarantee your success online.
You are also presented with questions like:Do you think you have what it takes to be successful online? and Have you started to develop on online presence yet?
Video 3 goes into more detail about product creation.
John also makes a promise to you which I promise you will find amazing! He bases this on what the rest of his students have managed to make online because of his Mentoring and of course their hard work. He makes no excuses for this, his system does work but you need to as well.
So how do you drive traffic to your product?
Video 4 shares some of John’s best traffic generating techniques in this video in fact, over 5 traffic generating techniques!
You’ll find the advice offered in this video absolutely invaluable. From contacting potential Joint Venture (JV) Partners to building a list of Affiliates, John really knows what he’s talking about.
How does this program differ from the rest?
Something about John Thornhill and the ‘Partnership to Success’ Program was different from the hundreds of emails I had seen over the previous years, all offering to make me rich or share some secret with me that I only had to pay $37 for!
What I was seeing with John Thornhill was a well structured 12 month Mentoring Program backed up by some other things which didn’t seem that important at the time but would prove to be invaluable as the training progressed.
I can honestly say that after just 8 weeks on the Partnership to Success Program, I achieved more that the previous 2 years and beyond.
So what should you be looking for in an Internet Marketing Mentor?
That’s a good question and the answer to this very much depends on your experience with Internet Marketing.
What I can tell you is what I received from the Partnership to Success Program and then maybe you can use this to compare against similar Mentoring Services available.
Access to Your Mentor?
When you hire an Internet Marketing Mentor or join one of their Partner Programs, how accessible are they?
With John Thorhnill’s ‘Partnership to Success‘ Program, you have the following options:
- Email his dedicated Support Desk
- Call him personally in his office
- Book a 1 hour consultation with him
It’s worth noting that for general support issues, the Support Desk is available 24/7.
Make sure you have access to your Mentor.
Does Your Mentor have Regular Webinars!
I had never attended a Webinar before I joined this program and to be honest I was a bit nervous for my first one!
I wasn’t even sure about what these Webinars would do for me, in the past I have seen these being offered as part of some package or another and thought they were a bit gimmicky!
I attended my first Webinar on Feb 26th 2014. Wow…The amount of information that my brain managed to soak up in that 1 hour was amazing, and what was really great was that I was online with other members of the Program.
All of a sudden, I wasn’t alone in the Internet Marketing game anymore!
Another thing which is worth considering is what if you can’t make the Webinar?
John Thornhill records all his Webinars and makes them available for listening later.
It’s worth making sure that your Mentor does this because you never know what curve ball life is going to throw you next.
Don’t miss that all-important bit of information!
Being part of a Group!
A good Mentoring Program caters to everyone’s needs.
I’ve enjoyed all of the Partnership to Success Program but one thing has really stood out for me, the Facebook Group!
This is a closed Group which means you need to be enrolled on the program to gain entry but once in it feels like you’re not doing this alone anymore.
The Facebook Partnership to Success Group really has changed the way I look at Facebook, I wasn’t a big fan before! All of the other members of the Program are in this Group and quite often if you have a problem, you’ll find that it has already been solved in the Group already, really excellent idea.
It also doesn’t matter what time of day you have this problem, providing you are a member of an Internet Marketing Program which is popular of course!
If I was looking for an Internet Marketing Mentor now, I would make sure it has a Facebook Group or similar service where other ‘students’ could help each other.
What do you want from an Internet Marketing Mentor Program?
For me, I wanted a structured weekly training schedule and a course which had flexibility so if the worst happened and I had to take a break from the Mentoring, then I could do that.
This is what the Partnership to Success Program provides and for me it has been ideal. On some phases of the course you can actually move faster, depending on your experience, which can be great when you need that bit of extra time to tackle a week which you need to take a bit slower!
So what do you need from your training? It’s worth taking some time looking over a Mentoring Program before buying that service. Is it what you need?
Internet Marketing Mentor Summary
I hope this article will help you when you’re considering the services of an Internet Marketing Mentor or Training Program.
What I’ve talked about here is what’s worked for me. Some people might not need this level of training and might just need someone they can ask for advice from occasionally!
For me though, I needed the full deal. I needed a well established Internet Marketer to help me develop a solid online presence, show me how to create and market digital products, generate traffic and give me the right tools and help so I could ‘quit the day job’!
This is what John Thornhill’s Partnership to Success Program managed to do. For me and many, many others.
