Tips on Expert Mentors to help Solve Internet Business Problems

Aug 14, 2008
When you've hired an expert mentor to help grow your internet marketing business, you want to make the most of it. You're investing not just your money, but also your time, in working with this mentor. And you're not just taking a class at the community college; your whole online business may be on the line depending on the results of your collaboration. It is critical that you work well with your expert mentor and make the most of your time with him.

Your first step is to place your full trust in the expert mentor. You should have done your homework and ensured that he or she is trustworthy, knows what they are doing, and has your best interests at heart. If you want this to work right, you must not challenge what your expert mentor tells you. Instead, close your eyes and step off the cliff when they tell you to.

Once you find that accepting feedback and direction and moving forward to take action as directed doesn't cause a terrible outcome, everything else will be much easier. Make a commitment to go along with each bit of direction exactly as requested. If there are ever questions about what an instruction means, stop and gain clarity before taking action. Establish clear plan that includes deadlines for completing all tasks that are assigned by your expert mentor. Then complete each and every task exactly as assigned by the deadline. Success or failure using an expert mentor ultimately falls on your shoulders. A focused effort by both you and your coach is critical to achieving the desired results.

Don't jump to a decision when making your selection of an expert mentor. Examine the credentials of several prospects before narrowing down the list of potential coaches. Carefully review the style, reputation, and references of the finalists. Be sure to focus time on their capability and experience to handle your specific problems and issues. Frequently these fall into three categories. First the issues associated with starting an internet marketing business must be addressed. Next are troubles that you are unable to fix. Finally there are the challenges of moving your business to improved levels of performance.

Expert mentors can greatly impact the performance of your business at each phase of development. However there are very different problems and issues being faced, so make sure your expert mentor is well-equipped to handle your special circumstances.

A new startup business requires a significant amount of coaching and direction. That's especially true if you lack prior experience starting and managing a new business. The startup issues can be totally overwhelming. They include obtaining the correct licenses and permits for your locality, wages and taxes, interviewing, staffing and managing employees, technology implementation, product identification and development and much more. In fact, the startup process can become a rocky road indeed if the correct steps aren't taken. That's where an expert mentor can help steer your internet marketing business to a velvety smooth take-off.

One of the most frustrating things that can happen to any business is to run into problems that just plain seem impossible to solve. Often the entrepreneur can identify the problem, but no matter how hard you work, the problem just stays right there, blocking all forward progress. What seems impossible to solve can be easy for an expert mentor. That coach can come in and quickly help you identify the exact problem, and then the best course of action to get it resolved. You see the problem solving process, the options that appear, and then you learn as the problem is resolved right before your eyes.

An expert mentor can be invaluable when it comes to taking a business to the next higher level of performance. While this might be completely new, uncharted territory for the entrepreneur, the expert mentor has been there and knows the unique challenges that will be faced as well as the right steps to take. While a highly skilled expert mentor at this level typically costs more, hastening the move to this new level of performance will quickly justify the expense. In fact, as your business performance moves ever-higher you will feel a well-selected mentor is one of the critical investments you made to achieve new levels of performance excellence.

There is not an internet marketing business out there that doesn't need help at some point. Utilizing the right professional expert mentor when your business needs help could be the best thing you ever did for your business.

To your internet marketing success!
