I’ve started a large marketing campaign for a product I love. The ad platform I’m using targets the urls I specify.
Needless to say, this means I’m doing a lot of research. The “litmus test” I’m using to qualify a url for targeting is their Alexa rating*.
Because I’m digging quite deeply into content, links and endorsements, etc. I’m discovering some interesting new leaders in this online community. By “new” I mean, new to me – they’ve been online, training successfully, for years. They have a massive number of dedicated followers!
This got me to thinking how we can get into a bit of a rut with our own training.
Now, don’t get me wrong! I love my mentor, and can’t imagine ditching her for another. But, in discovering all these new mentors I’m getting some interesting, and useful, new views on subjects I thought I was knowledgeable about, and learning new ideas pertaining to those subjects.
I realize now I had fallen into the “comfortableness” of an old marriage!
The point I am trying to make here is that once you find a mentor, don’t think you can’t keep dating!! This is NOT a traditional marriage! The more viewpoints you have about the subjects pertinent to your business, the better-rounded you will be in both your advancement and your own offerings.
I will add a rider here that I don’t think you should be hopping from one mentor to another! Pick a horse and ride it, so to speak. If you hop from mentor to mentor, you are regularly starting over with your processes and that’s a waste of time. and often money.
If you’ve been online for a while, I’m curious how many mentors you have followed, and are following.
