We get so much great feedback from our users and I probably take it for granted.
Because our whole business is built around communication and asking for feedback, I feel like we might get more of it than the average startup.
Our community members have signed up to a platform where someone may tell them something they don’t want to hear. But they are ok with that because they understand the importance of learning from others.
Because said members are open-minded and ready to take feedback (positive or negative), you better believe they are ready to dish it right back out in another direction.
Which is super for us and our product road-map.
When we get feedback, we beg for more!
You asked, we delivered
A very common question we started getting more and more as we picked up momentum was, “Can I hire a mentors to do XYZ for me?”
So we put together a Typeform and off we went!
From project based gigs to full time roles – many matches have been made and everyone is happy!
We’re all about win-wins at GrowthMentor 😉
Taking things to the next level
(No we aren’t talking about Facebook relationship statuses here)
Adding the long-term dimension to the platform was another request that we were hearing often.
“Can I book a long-term package with a mentor?”
We would respond with something like, “You can book as many calls as you’d like with the mentors, there is no limit.”
Makes sense right? Especially since most of the mentors are free.
As we spoke to more and more people about this idea, we kept hearing 2 main themes.
- Quick Access
This is such an over-looked aspect in so many people’s professional careers as we move farther and farther away from the 9-5 boss looking over our shoulder.
If you are your own boss, who holds you accountable?
Our members wanted to book long term with a mentor so they knew that someone would be there week after week to keep their ass in check.
We live in a world of convenience.
On our platform we have a 24 hour buffer zone for people to plan accordingly if they are scheduling a mentor session.
That wasn’t really the issue that people had though, it was more about, ‘just having a simple question, but not wanting to bother a mentor’.
Not enough to justify a 30 min call and they didn’t feel comfortable just being that person who just messages and asks for advice.
I can respect that!
Some of our mentors get random ‘asks’ every single day in their DMs and just can’t give attention to them all.
People wanted someone that they could count on to respond to them in a timely manner to answer their questions, help them solve their problems and give them actionable advice.
Whether you are a marketer, a startup founder or working at a big corporation, having direct access to a Growth Mentor will be a game changer.
Can you imagine having Jake Stainer‘s brain available on demand?!
Mentors have the ability to offer monthly coaching packages.
Each mentor determines what they will offer as far communication methods, time stipulations and cost.
If a mentor offers coaching, you can read their description by clicking ‘Request Monthly Coaching’ on their profile.
We are currently beta testing this and have some mentors already offering packages.
My coaching services range from business support (consulting) to individual / team coaching (increase UX skill set) or also career coaching for aspiring UX designers.
This default monthly rate (exclusive to GrowthMentor) includes 1-hour weekly session (4 sessions per month via Skype or Zoom) and unlimited email support during the week (max 48 hours turnaround)
