I have to say this mentoring stuff is hard work when you’re doing it off the cuff.
I’ve had 4 people approach me this week requesting some help with either their approach to MWA – Marketing With Alex (One of Alex Jeffreys’ tutorial courses) or with their marketing in general. They found me through Alex’s MWA Facebook group. I’m still getting into what their individual requirements are although fortunately they’re all at similar stages with similar wants and needs as well as similar abilities. That makes things a lot easier than it could be.
I’m collecting and collating all the stuff I’m writing for them and sending by email (no conference calls at the moment) so I can put together a formalised course, something I can charge for obviously, but in the meantime, these guys are getting my aid for free. I have no doubt that I’ll be able to work with each of them n future projects. The one common problem is the ‘want it now’ thing. It’s not an attitude or driving force, it’s a mentality that’s been implanted by too many other sellers (not marketers – they’re a different breed) in order to sell the shiny objects.
My first Facebook viral app is going well. It’s live and is pulling in signups to my list, not in huge numbers yet, but it’s only been live a day or so. You can see it here: http://www.aymayzin.com/ultimate-sales-funnel-blueprint/ I used one of my other domains to host it in case it all went pear shaped. I don’t want anything to affect this domain. I will write a follow up review to my earlier one on Facebook Viral Bomb 2.0. I do have a WarriorPlus affiliate request in for this product but the seller has not responded after 48 hours. Either he’s doing well enough on his own to not want affiliates or he’s busy responding to support requests to check his WP account.
I actually think it may be well worth while doing an article on the Warrior Forum and WarriorPlus and how they tie in together, perhaps throwing in JVZoo, Commission Junction and PayDotCom so that marketers can be aware of alternatives to ClickBank.
Other than that my own activities have been restricted to blog commenting, answering Facebook queries (which got me the mentoring gigs) and trying to do a bit more on my own products. The latter activity has slowed right down due to the unexpected mentoring requests. I want to do them though as positive results with these guys will enhance my reputation – which is what this blog is about! Being flexible enough to change priorities may be a good thing in some ways, but it plays havoc with marketing plans! Time for a plan re-write, methinks.
