All your questions about mentorship, answered

What can an email marketing mentor offer compared to an email marketing consultant?

Typically, email marketing consultants charge a high consulting fee. But email marketing mentors work by the “done-with-you” approach, allowing you to learn how to run email marketing campaigns on your own, eliminating the need for expensive consultants or agencies.

Email marketing mentors will focus on:

  • Cost-Effective Expertise and Support: Because mentors are passionate about helping others, they’ll provide you with support and advice for email marketing without the steep fees.
  • Tailored Guidance: Your mentor will examine your specific situation and provide step-by-step walkthroughs of email marketing strategies.
  • Actionable Advice: An email marketing mentor won’t leave you with a bunch of nonactionable theory. Instead, they’ll walk you through exactly how to start implementing their advice.

What can an email marketing mentor do for me?

Most email marketing mentors have run hundreds of campaigns over their careers. Some have even been running email campaigns since email marketing became a thing.

These mentors have the real-world experience you need to give your campaigns an edge.

With a mentor’s advice, email marketing will be less of a black box. You’ll understand what limits your campaign’s visibility, what can get your emails flagged or filtered, and what copy and designs tend to resonate better with your audience.

For more advanced campaign managers, an email marketing mentor can walk you through niche targeting tactics, detailed frameworks to test email copy and design, and how to manage large email lists and budgets. They can even show you examples of their own campaigns so you can learn from them.

So you can get even better results with less time, testing, and money, regardless of your experience level.

Cost Comparison: Email Marketing Consultants vs. GrowthMentor

When it comes to email marketing consulting, traditional consultants typically charge between $100 to $200 per hour, depending on their level of expertise and reputation. And when you’re already paying for email marketing tools and services, the costs can add up fast, especially for startups who need ongoing support.

In contrast, GrowthMentor offers a much more affordable and flexible solution. For just $99 per month, you get unlimited access to dozens of email marketing mentors. This flat monthly fee means you don’t have to worry about hourly rates and dread charges for follow-up calls.

Email Marketing Consultants:

  • Hourly Rates: Typically range from $100 to $200 per hour, depending on expertise and reputation.
  • Total Cost: For multiple sessions, costs can quickly add up, making it expensive for startups and small businesses.


  • Monthly Rate: $99 per month for unlimited sessions.

GrowthMentor also allows you to connect with different mentors, rather than locking you into an exclusive contract with a consultant. You can chat with a variety of experts and learn from their perspectives.

By choosing GrowthMentor, you’ll get continuous, tailored guidance from experienced email marketing pros, all without the hefty price tag. Which means you have more in your pocket to put towards your campaigns instead.

Why should I trust GrowthMentor’s mentors?

Excellent question. After all, the “mentorship” world is full of high-priced consultants, armchair analysts who have never done the work themselves, and outright snake-oil salesmen looking to make a quick buck.

But, there are plenty of experts out there who want to share their experience and knowledge. At GrowthMentor, we’re lucky to have 700+ of those experts.

The secret comes from our vetting process. We not only double-vet all of our mentors so only the top 3% make it through our process, but we also look at their soft skills. Because no one wants a mentor who’s a snob or a jerk.

On top of it, 85% of our mentors don’t charge an extra fee. Why?

The short answer: Because they want to help people.

The long answer is because…

  • They enjoy sharing their knowledge
  • They learn from their mentees
  • They want to be a “force for good” in the business world
  • They want to pay it forward

But don’t just trust our word on it. Hear from the mentors themselves.
