Vassilena Valchanova

Digital Strategist & Trainer
Building a sustainable content strategy that drives results is no easy feat, but I've helped dozens of companies do just that. Together we can discuss your target audience, build your personas, and use smart ways to find the right content topics, formats, and channels. Once the plan is there, I can give you battle-tested advice on long-form copywriting, optimization, reusing content, distribution, and measurement.

Kevin Indig

VP SEO & Content at G2.com
I've been in content marketing for as long as I've been in SEO, which is about 10 years, and helped all sorts of companies in B2B and B2C with strategy and implementation. The most notable ones are Atlassian's microsites: www.atlassian.com/jira or www.atlassian.com/git and four others.

Helen Peatfield

Conversion Copywriter
Not sure if your site, landing pages, or emails are really sellin' it? I'm a bottom-feeder. Nope, not like the funny little suckerfish in your fish tank. More like a copy chef, feeding your visitors irresistible bottom-of-funnel content. Or what I like to call, The Business End of your content strategy: The Booty Shaker. The Money Maker. This is my bread and butter. But on GrowthMentor, I'll give you real insights & action points without having to hire me for the whole ($$$$) shebang.

Let's talk about how you can content to drive organic visitors to your product at likely a lower investment than a paid acquisition channel. The "If you build it, they will come" can be true with the right content strategy.

Wow! 🚀 My conversation with Ross was simply filled with great insight and advice. He is someone who takes the time to really listen before speaking, and helps you think through problems. He helped me identify very quickly some weak spots in my content marketing strategy and gave me some very actionable tips to improve them.

Why talk to a content marketing expert?

Content marketing’s explosion in popularity has been replaced with a stark and sobering realization that everyone’s doing it, and many are doing it extremely well. If you have not started content marketing yet you might think that you are too late, but I have good news for you.

It’s not too late!

On the contrary, it’s never been a better time to get started with content marketing if you know what you’re doing and focus on channels that work for your business.

Yes, there is definitely a lot more competition than there used to be a few years back. With more than 2 million blog posts being created every day, the level of competitiveness is dramatically increased. But there are still many ways to succeed and drive growth using content marketing. You just might have to zig where all the others zag.

Lots of the “tricks” and best practices that you read about on blogs and watch on online courses are completely outdated and simply won’t work anymore. In saturated markets taking the copycat approach is the surest way to failure. A strategic approach needs to be taken to succeed in content marketing in 2021. It’s not enough to just “show up” with your blog and podcast. Everyone’s doing that already.

To get the latest insight on what’s working and what’s not working in content marketing you need to talk directly to the “doers” are actually practicing content marketing at high-growth startups themselves.

And that’s exactly where GrowthMentor becomes insanely useful.

It is a good idea to connect with the other person once the session is accepted and the details are given. This ensures that the correct details were given and when it is time to start, you can start on time.

Here are some tips on how to get the maximum bang for your time on growth mentor calls.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be cool with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as honest as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax. There’s no right/wrong way to do this. Avoid binary thinking.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors. Pay attention to metadata.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to play devil’s advocate and challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly and authentic. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Yup! Many of the mentors offer monthly coaching packages for members who want to really dive deep into a specific area.

Each mentor creates their own package so what they offer and the price vary from mentor to mentor. You can find their coaching info at the top of their profile.
